[Stable Update] 2018-03-27 - Kernels, Krita, Grub, Deepin, Pamac, Pacman-Mirrors, Firefox

They were. The packages on Manjaro are now 1.12.4-1. :sunglasses:

Presumably the packages you are trying to update from AUR (so they need compiling). What do you need these for? Recommend either replacing, or deleting. Or ask on AUR thread if you need specifically the 0.10 version.

Yes, its likely you dont need these. Check
pacman -Qi gstreamer0.10-bad gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins
to see what, if anything, requires them. (looking at them myself, likely nothing does)
If nothing, then remove.

Not sure if update related, might be an issue with NVIDIA in general, but my KDE desktop resolution dropped to 640x480. Had to add

Section "OutputClass"
    Identifier "intel"
    ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions"
EndSection

to /etc/X11/mhwd.d/intel.conf to get Steam starting again. It failed to find opengl GLX after update, when running with the integrated grapics card. Using optirun steam worked fine.

Also added

Section "Screen"
...
Virtual 1920 1080
...
EndSection

to /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf to get the desktop resolution corrected.

Haven’t tried with

...
Option "metamodes" "1920x1080 +0+0"
...

since I really don’t know the difference and everything is working fine at the moment, so don’t want to go poking around.

Another excellent smooth update, Tower & Lappy, KDE, Kernel 4.15.13.

Manjaro is so cool. Thanks all.

Hello all,
great work with Manjaro.
IT IS a complete distro.
is this maybe a bug ? or am I missing something ?

There’s still problem in deepin with icon themes in deepin settings panel. I can change only to Papirus. To change to my favourite Halo icons I have to use dconf editor. But it don’t change icons in nautilus.

Manjaro Mate, kernel 4.14.30-1. Everything smooth after rebooting.

Cheers!

This is a normal situation.
Check this Tutorial, notice the last command for EFI setups.

Desktop Manjaro KDE kernel 4.14 and laptop Manjaro Deepin kernel 4.14 without any problems after update. Thank you so much.

I was downloading 60Gb torrent with transmission-gtk, got up to 10Gb then I updated system and rebooted.

Now my torrent stops downloading after few seconds and my CPU usage go 100% on that drive mounted by fstab :open_mouth:
I don’t think that’s faulty hdd though + entire system is nearly inoperable after I attempt to continue downloading.

Any tips appretiated, but I think it’s the kernel fault again, anybody know why ntfs-3g is not found?

EDIT: “oh mother of god, thank myself I pasted my fstab I humbly destroyed today with vimdiff”

@grinner and @cscs, thank you both for the reply. I too thought they were AUR packages, but I could have sworn that gstreamer was removed from my system from an update several months ago because of issues caused by them at that time. I was surprised to find them on my system.

Anyway, I did a “yaourt -R packageName” and it failed to remove them, so I tried “pacman -Rsn packageName” and that also failed to remove the packages so I used pacmac and uninstalled them from the GUI.

So far it looks like they were unneeded packages.

I have a problem with this upgrade. I think I managed to isolate the problem and do a partial upgrade of everything that does work. If I try to upgrade libpsl or curl, NetworkManager breaks. My current solution to this is to not upgrade libpsl and everything it depends on or depends on it. It’s not a great solution, but it works. Just me experiencing this?

Do you have a specific version of networkmanager you hold back?

Oh how stupid of me. I checked for that, but now I remember I compiled it myself for some reason and bumped the pkgrel in the process. That’s why pacman thought it was up to date. Now everything works…
Thanks haha.

KDE
Thinkpad T60 Intel T5500, Kernel 4.9.90-1, fresh reboot after update
Graphics: Intel Mobile 945GM/GMS 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller driver: i915


One thing I notice is, that Youtube video playback on Firefox is maxing out my Thinkpad T60 after approx. 10 minutes. The whole system is getting annoyingly laggy in responding to mouse or keyboard input.
That did not happen with the previous Stable Update.

Hi guys, again I don’t know whether these are Manjaro or KDE bugs but I’d like to point them out and ask if anyone facing them too.
First, Online Accounts issue when adding Twitter account (no authorization prompt window appears), also the list of possible accounts looks incomplete.
And the second: something prevents setting custom background for sddm. No error is being reported during click-and-apply process but in the end the background stays the same. Weird.

I have been facing these issues since December, 2017 (when I istalled Manjaro for the 1st time ever), they are not crucial of course, but as soon as I have nothing else to report…
