Known issues and solutions
This is a wiki post, please edit as necessary
My wired network connection has stopped working (
This appears to be a kernel regression:
The driver has a “race condition” meaning sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. This is why reboots sometimes “fix” the issue and why there isn’t consistently a problem.
Until a patch gets included in the kernel there are a couple of workarounds:
try rebooting several times; this might make things usable “enough” in the meantime
switch to a different kernel
To check if you’re using the
$ inxi -N
Network: Card-1: Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (Lewisville) driver: e1000e
Card-2: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] driver: iwlwifi
Affected kernel series:
linux318, linux44, linux49, linux414
Network connection is unreliable, not working, or not connecting
Occasionally, Network Manager updates change the underlying settings structure (schemas). This can change or break existing settings without you knowing about it.
This can be fixed by removing the existing connection settings, and then re-adding the connection.
You may also need to reboot. If this does not work, move to the next point.
networkmanager 1.10.2-1 does not auto-connect to WLAN (KDE)
If you find that your WLAN does not auto connect even if the entry is ticked to do so, you can downgrade the Network Manager package. Before doing so, please check the point above.
If you haven’t cleared pacman’s cache it’s possible to downgrade to the working build:
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/networkmanager-1.10.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
you’ll also need to temporarily ignore the package in /etc/pacman.conf
# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
IgnorePkg = networkmanager
don’t forget to reverse this ignore setting as and when a networkmanager fix is announced and released to
vlc-nightly doesn’t work any more
“Nightly” versions aren’t massively reliable; try this version instead:
sudo pacman -U https://mirror.netzspielplatz.de/manjaro/packages/unstable/community/x86_64/vlc-nightly-3.0.0v20171216-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
This has been pushed out, mirrors will have it shortly.
I’ve heard something about “tlp” and think it might have broken something
New version 1.0-1.4 reverts one setting that should help desktop systems. It should hit mirrors shortly, or get it early:
pacman -U wget https://mirror.netzspielplatz.de/manjaro/packages/stable/community/x86_64/tlp-1.0-1.4-any.pkg.tar.xz
# and for tlp-rdw:
pacman -U wget https://mirror.netzspielplatz.de/manjaro/packages/stable/community/x86_64/tlp-rdw-1.0-1.4-any.pkg.tar.xz
Go to the testing thread and review the changes:
I’ve pushed a new version for TLP to unstable (tlp=1.0-1.4). This changes several default settings for TLP. These need testing to make sure they don’t have any unseen side-effects (though I’ve been running these myself for the last few months on three systems without issue).
You will have to merge or replace /etc/default/tlp with the new settings if you have made any changes to that file - check for a /etc/default/tlp.pacnew.
You’ll also either have to reboot or reload and restart…
Not able to printing
cups-filters 1.17.9-5 seem not able to recognize all printer already installed. Temporary workaround downgrade
cups-filters to solve the issue.
deepin issues: control center won’t close / right-click dock icons freezes system
According to the reply of dde developer,I have solved this problem. The bug has been reported on github,and has been fixed on archlinux branch. so what you need to do is to manually download the latest version of the package “dde-api”, which should be 22.214.171.124-1 from
archlinux.org and “pacman -U” it,then everything seem to be fine.
