gstreamer0.10* -> https://www.archlinux.org/todo/phasing-out-gstreamer010/


Not at all. Steam uses now the normal systemlibs (like it is on arch), no extracted parts of the runtime anymore.


#42

well someone got lazy I guess 0.o

Everythig done and installed - however stuck here:

( 2/16) Updating Grub-Bootmenu
Generating grub configuration file ...

Hanging has gone beyond 5 minutes.

update - operation has now completed.

Hi again Bros,

I did some more digging in my issue (Manjaro Budgie not booting properly), I can tell by entering the LightDM configuration menus that both the theme (Vertex-Maia-Square) and icons (maia) set as default in lightDM had their references broken somehow.

It seems that the original references on the LightDM config menu points to:

Theme:
/usr/share/themes/Vertex-Maia-Square/gtk-3.0/gtk.ss

Icons
/usr/share/icons/maia/index.theme

The thing is: I’ve never messed with this configuration. I’ll wait to see if I’m the only one here with this issue…

#46

Updated Xfce and KDE, rebooted both and all looks fine, thank you Manjaro team.


#47

With respect to gstreamer removal:

It can be seen that other packages have been chosen by octopi to remove.
Can someone comment on this please?
If I leave gstreamer alone then I will have a yellow mollusc waving at me from the system tray.
If I update then I have unmaintained gstreamer packages according to the arch link posted above.

Hey other than that all looks well!!

edited for update: Forget it: they’re gone! I committed.

cheers


#48

Updated with pacman. Afterwards, pacman was still red, and I was notified that there were 7 updates available. Tried pacman again – “nothing to do.” So I went to yaourt. Yoaourt installed a couple of things then got stuck in an endless loop (I watched it for about 15 minutes) apparently trying to update gstreamer0.10-good-plugins, ugly-plugins, etc. Stopped it with a ctrl-C and went back to work (lunchtime over). When I got home I saw from the posts above that gstreamer is depricated, so I removed it. Now pacman notifier is green again!


#49

Finally found someone who has experienced the same issue with booting, so I’ll keep the research on the issue in this guys thread


#50

It is good practice to always read the update announcement threads before updating. Everyone should know what is being updated and be aware of any known or potential issues and suggested workarounds.


#51

I wish it weren’t necessary, and most of the time its not (at least on Stable) but there have been a few times where it saved me a lot of grief.

Too bad pamac and friends couldn’t pop up a Readme page to handle this stuff.

I don’t know of any other Linux Distro where I have to check the website before I dare hit the update button.


#52

…this was a big one. First updated only manjaro repos, then removed all foreign packages that are not mine ( pepperflash, icons and themes ), reboot, all good, but I also saw the warning about WebKitGTK+ 2.4 that @MonkeeCat mentioned.

…o.k., removed that, now my manjaro welcome is gone. I don´t care, I´m already here.

browser is working, vlc is playing, guayadeque is playing. My minimal xfce is working fine.

GOOD BOYS, THANK YOU !


#53

I know a few. Arch and Gentoo for example. Sensing a pattern?


#54

Don’t have to I just think it is good practice to do this.

I never install or update any software without at the very least a rudimentary understanding or awareness of what is being updated, this is not Linux distro specific.

With a rolling release knowing your system and an awareness of what is about to change is important IMO given the large number of constantly moving parts.

I am still amazed at the number of people that still update without doing a full backup first, particularly with the last two updates being so large.

The next update will probably include Qt version bump, would definitely recommend a backup before that, there have already been issues in Arch with KDE 5.8.


#55

I was planning to upgrade and just encountered the following when I opted not to proceed with the installation:

$ sudo pacman -Su
[sudo] password for ------: 
:: Some packages should be upgraded first...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

:: Replace cdrkit with community/cdrtools? [Y/n] ^C

$

#56

I received the same Replace [package] with [package] prompts and accepted them.

Update completed fine.


#57

you should always replace cdrkit with cdrtools even without any prompting :stuck_out_tongue:

look it up if you care for some FOSS drama :wink:


#58

Use pacman -Qi on any package to find out what that package is Required By. You can then remove that with a pacman -Rs if it is a package that you do not need (the ‘s’ is so that unnecessary dependencies are also removed: in this case, the original package), or you explore further with -Qi.


#59

used by manjaro-welcome

# pacman -Rsc webkitgtk webkitgtk2 manjaro-welcome


#60

Everything is fine.

A small issue with Arc-Maia themes; they’re incompatible with Firefox 50.1.0
