All good here,



Happy Birthday @philm :slight_smile:
Thank you.


I had the same problems as you, could not shut down, and after reboot, sound did not work and regular user could not activate network. I had to also run
sudo rc-update add elogind default

After another reboot, sound and network works again, and shutdown options are no longer greyed out.


Happy birthday :champagne:


Hi there, Thank you for all the great job done in MANJARO

I have one issue: I can not connect to wifi network as a normal user, I get this message:

nm-applet: Connection activation failed: Not authorized to control networking 

So I tried sudo nmtui and it is woking. I think the problem is with networkmanger permission and it arises because the removal of consolekit, polkit-consolekit and networkmanger-consolekit. There is a number of OLD (2010 ~2012) bugs about NetwotkManager permission and all of them suggest solutions using polkit and consolekit (which were replaced during the update).
I verified that the current user is part of network group. I failed to use the tried the following

$ groups
disk lp wheel network video audio optical storage scanner input power users

I added dbus-launch to my slim.conf:

login_cmd           exec dbus-launch /bin/bash -login ~/.xinitrc %session

I changed deny to allow in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Manjaro.conf:

<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
 "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
        <policy group="network">
                <allow own="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"/>

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

                <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManager"

Here is nmcli gen perm output:

and still I cannot connect to my wifi as a normal user ! Any suggestions

Happy birthday, Manjaro Daddy! Everything good with 4 systems here. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Happy Birthday @philm !
I am new here and first I would like to thank you and the community for awesome work. I love Manjaro so far!
I had an issue with this update, wine 2.6-1 caused some graphic bugs in Torchlight, so I installed 2.4-1 instead (2.5-1 is also good, I had it before the update). I will probably post to wine Bugzilla if it is not yet posted


Getting issues running anything through bumblebee after the update.

The error I see:
primus: fatal: bumblebee daemon reported: error: could not load GPU driver

When I try to restart the bumblebeed.service, I get a failure.


Working fine here


Are you using Open- rc? If so use sudo rc- update add elogind default and reboot.


Thank you @kb41 that solved my issue… :grin:


thank you @kb41 that solved my issue :grin: :penguin:


Update on 12 Systems without Problems.



Hi @kb41

I use open-rc and your answer solve my problem: after the update i can’t shutdown the system, now it’s work correctly.

I need to run this commands for update work.

  • Before update:

sudo pacman -Rdd light-locker-consolekit
sudo pacman -S networkmanager

  • Update

sudo pacman -Syu

Answer “yes” to all questions about add/remove packages

  • After update:

sudo rc-update add elogind default

Updating (Stable, 4-15-17)

same here, maybe I’m a bit tired but I only saw Lightfirefox and no standard firefox update…


Taking the default options is a non starter:

sudo pacman -Syyuu

It does update if I refuse the replacement of pm-utils, but not otherwise. I first tried the update yesterday, then left it till just now in case the mirror had not updated properly.

I update my physical machine with VMware installed and now the VMware don’t start, the process to update modules don’t work. I try in terminal with sudo and root but nothing.

I looking for in the everything.log and appear a message of segfault for any time that i exec vmware-modconfg:

Apr 16 16:13:21 manjaro kernel: vmware-modconfi[2973]: segfault at 3680 ip 0000000000003680 sp 00007ffe2e917c08 error 14 in appLoader[55abde0fe000+ad000]

I use lats kernel 4.10, also test kernels 4.9 and 4.4 with the same result.


Are you using Open-rc?
