[Stable Update] 2017-08-18 - Kernels, Deepin, Firefox, Xorg-Server, Mesa, Pamac



Smooth as usual, thanks Lisa


On manjaro Gnome; this update broke Firefox’s pocket icon and sync button/screen;

As you can see the pocket icon shows 2 icons.


just noticed, that i too get this message now.


Have not added a drive or any hardware. Updated to 4.12.7 now get the error.


all went smooth on xfce. I had to go into properties on the weather plugin to get it to read my city again which was no big deal took a whole few seconds, Other then that kernel 4.9 and all is smooth so far :slight_smile: Thanks again


That’s a problem with the Arc theme.

Switch to another theme.


qbittorrent 3.3.15 was released on 2017-08-07. We still have version 3.3.13 in our repositories.


It’s because in the official arch repos its still not updated (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=qbittorrent).
You can use the AUR version (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/qbittorrent-git/).


There is a problem, the tried kernel 4.12.7 did not help!!!


Install in manjaro I3, no problem for now, suspend fine with kernel 4.12.



Smooth update on my KDE machine, as usual.
Thank you.


still on firefox v54
Any idea why this hasnt updated?


Your mirror has not synced yet. Check the status of the mirrors at http://repo.manjaro.org

You can place an up-to-date mirror at the top of /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist using your favorite text editor.


At download I get following messages:

The rest of the update went smooth.


Update: I can now boot normally by removing bumblebee from mhwd. So I’d say that the stable update broke bumblebee
Any solutions?
Update 2: Bumblebee works after updating kernel to 4.10.17. Now the question is why an update in the 4.9 lts kernel broke bumblebee.

Original post:

My DE (KDE) failed to start after the update: No graphical interface after stable update

It looks like some problem with bumblebee, but I’m not sure


xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin on panel is misbehaving: clicking it will bring up the volume slider, but attempting to manipulate the slider by click and drag acts like i clicked the desktop behind it and closes it. manipulating it by mouseover and scroll-wheel works.

[Stable Update] 2017-08-24 - Kernels, Firefox, KDE Framework & Apps, Budgie, Deepin, Wine

Thanks, had to do this too, a simple mirrors -g didn’t work, somehow.


Got caught by unsynched mirrors for 2nd time. I only got kernel updates and not the associated nvidia drivers, so “failed to load kernel modules” on reboot.

sorted :sunglasses:


"could not get file information for /etc/xdg/autostart/pacmac-tray.desktop"
got this warning after update. i am afraid to reboot unless someone can tell me it’s ok…im a little paranoid because my last update borked my install and i had to reinstall my entire o/s.
i opened the file and this is what’s in it;

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Update Notifier
Exec=sh -c "GDK_BACKEND=x11 pamac-tray"
also, half my icons on cairo-doc are missing. before i reboot.
i am running gnome DE. if im missing something here please someone tell me.
edit; i solved my cairo-doc problem.
jury is still out on “could not get file information for /etc/xdg/autostart/pacmac-tray.desktop”
