[Stable Update] 2018-12-23 - Kernels, Cinnamon, XFCE, Nvidia, Pamac, Firmware, Brave

Hi community,

Welcome to another stable update.

So what do we have with this one?

  • We updated the brave browser and most of our kernels
  • Added the latest linux-firmware and AMD microcodes
  • Pamac v7.3.3 fixed some issues
  • The Nvidia driver is now at 415.25
  • And we renewed some Cinnamon and XFCE packages

We hope with all these changes Manjaro to be more efficient for you all.

#bladebook - shipping in Spring 2019


We are happy to announce that we have partnered up with FCS to offer you the #bladebook with a nice hardware upgrade. We now have the newer Intel® Celeron® Processor J3455 (Apollo Lake) with a burst frequency up to 2.30 GHz. It comes with 6 GB DDR3L and a built-in 256 GB SSD. We changed the screen to an IPS panel with 1920x1080 resolution and upped the WIFI to a dual frequency 2.4G + 5G band. For more information go to our hardware page or the shop.

Manjaro v18.0.1 released!

It took us almost two months of development to update Manjaro Illyria. It comes with refreshed packages and updated tools. You may want to download our XFCE Edition with the latest 4.13 packages, aswell as our most recent styling efforts. Our KDE fans may try our KDE Edition with the latest KDE v5.14 instead. And our GNOME fans may try our Gnome Edition with the latest GNOME v3.30.

Can’t boot my systemd with AMD graphic card

There seems to be an issue with amd-ucode and linux-firmware packages in version 20181214.8aa9e3e-1. Therefore we downgraded both packages to the known working one in version 20181026.1cb4e51-1. You may either use pamac upgrade --enable-downgrade or sudo pacman -Syyuu to accomplish that.

Others reported to have success by upgrading to version 20181218.0f22c85-1 of both packages:

sudo pacman -U http://repo.manjaro.org.uk/pool/sync/linux-firmware-20181218.0f22c85-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
sudo pacman -U http://repo.manjaro.org.uk/pool/sync/amd-ucode-20181218.0f22c85-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

“warning: systemd: local (239.303-1) is newer than core (239.6-2)” What do I do?

As said in this announcement, systemd packages has been downgraded to an older version. Hence, as long as the version installed on your system will be on a higher version, you’ll receive a warning.

If you already have systemd 239.303 on your system and you have no problem with it, you can just ignore the warning and continue to use systemd 239.303. There’s no need to do any action.

If you are still interested to downgrade systemd to 239.6, you can do the downgrade with pamac upgrade --enable-downgrade or sudo pacman -Syyuu.

Items from previous update sets

How do I do updates via TTY-terminal?

  • Press CTRL+ALT+F2 (or F3, F4, F5, F6) to go into a pure command line interface.
  • Log in with your credentials.
  • Once logged in, you’ll have access to a CLI shell, like if you were using a terminal. Use pamac upgrade or sudo pacman -Syyu (or other equivalent command) to update your system.

To go back to your regular desktop, press CTRL+ALT+F7. On some systems, it can be CTRL+ALT+F1 instead.

i3 changed its default config path

It seems that (from version >= 4.16) i3 is looking for its configuration in ~/.config/i3/config instead of ~/.i3/config.
Copy your config to the new path and all should work as before. (reported from an i3-gaps user).

I can’t open Nemo with elevated privileges (as root)

Workaround found: Use the dbus-x11 package instead of the regular dbus package. This package is available in the official repositories and provides dbus compiled without the --without-x option.

To replace dbus with dbus-x11 package, simply install dbus-x11 with your favorite package manager: dbus will be replaced by dbus-x11.

Pamac: “Failed to commit transaction - Transaction not prepared” at the end

So far, it has only been a false alarm: updates are applied successfully.

AMD-Ucode introduction

Unless you’ve already done this previously, All users of AMD-APUs/CPUs should install this update like this:

sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S amd-ucode
sudo pacman -R intel-ucode
sudo update-grub

Step 3 is optional.

Rebuilding fontconfig cache: failed to write cache

Please ignore this message. Upstream already works on a solution. More about the issue here.

LibreOffice has no window decoration in KDE

New line export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3_kde5, once merged into existing /etc/profile.d/libreoffice-fresh.sh , fixes a moderately longterm issue. If it doesn’t work for you, you may use gtk instead of gtk3_kde5 as UI framework.

Installing glibc (2.28-4) breaks the dependency “glibc=2.27” required by lib32-glibc

Install the update either:

  • from terminal: sudo pacman -Syu or;
  • with Octopi instead of Pamac.

Something using Perl/Python/glibc broke

Rebuilds needed!

  • If it’s an AUR package, try to reinstall it from AUR. It most likely needs to be rebuilt.
  • If it’s a repo package, please report and check back regularly for updates.

I’ve lost a Thunderbird addon/feature

Thunderbird 60 disables incompatible addons by default. There’s an about:config switch should you want to force-enable the addon, but many addons simply will not work with the newer Quantum-based Thunderbird.

Firefox - WebGL not working anymore

You may try the following solution:

Open about:config and set security.sandbox.content.read_path_whitelist to /sys/.

libutf8proc>=2.1.1-3 update may require manual intervention

This should normally be automatically fixed via manjaro-system update.

The libutf8proc package prior to version 2.1.1-3 had an incorrect soname link. This has been fixed in 2.1.1-3, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error

libutf8proc: /usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2

to perform the upgrade.

Pamac: “Invalid or corrupted package.”

If you receive an “Invalid or corrupted package.” error message with Pamac and if the details contains an output similar to the following:

Issues with folder view widget in KDE v5.13

KDE introduced a new setting for icon sizes. Now you’re able to define also the size for your panel. If you have a high-DPI display, you may want to increase the value. This will fix the display issue with given widget.


Pulseaudio changes

With this update we have a /etc/pulse/default.pa.pacnew. It may be necessary to merge (some lines related to “GSettings” in /etc/pulse/default.pa ) if ‘default.pa’ has been customised.

File conflict engrampa.tap

thunar-archive-plugin: /usr/lib/xfce4/thunar-archive-plugin/engrampa.tap exists in filesystem (owned by engrampa-thunar-plugin)

thunar-archive-plugin has added native support for the Engrampa archive manager. engrampa-thunar-plugin is no longer needed. Remove engrampa-thunar-plugin to continue with the update.


Installed this yesterday on Cinnamon and LXDE 4.19 (both had systemd 239.303-1). All good in land of the free and home of the Brave :slight_smile:

Any idea if these errors are acceptable/how to fix them?

Do you have grub-customizer installed? Or previously and uninstalled?

I don’t and never have to my knowledge.

Okay, good; then do at terminal

sudo grub-install --debug --recheck 
sudo update-grub

Any errors at grub-install please report.
Good luck.

I apologize for being very noobish about this, just want to confirm: should I include the --debug and --recheck in those commands?


There were no errors with the first command, but the exact same errors as before appeared after update-grub.

updated both desktop and laptop running on XFCE 18.0. Everything is fine!

I think you should be okay, but to be completely sure, do the 2 commands below.

sudo cp /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/core.efi /boot/efi/EFI/boot/bootx64.efi
sudo efibootmgr -c -d /dev/nvme0n1 -p 1 -L "manjaro" -l "\EFI\Manjaro\grubx64.efi"

The $esp appears to me to be /dev/nvme0n1p1
But please reconfirm at terminal with

findmnt /boot/efi

If different, change the 2nd command to the right partition.

linux-firmware (20181214.8aa9e3e-1-any

Bugged all to hell. Had to grab the 20181218 package from arch archives. Causes a blank screen on boot with AMD RX 590. Was working prior to that update and working after that update. Consider more testing.

I confirmed using the findmnt command, and the source was /dev/nvme0n1p1 as expected. I copied in your commands and received the following output:

Is this expected? And should I be good now?

Okay, good. But you have a Lenovo?
Some won’t play nice, but you had it working before, so it should be good.
You did also the first command (cp /boot/grub…)? Please do if you hadn’t.

I do have a Lenovo but haven’t had any problems in the past. I did do the first command. I suppose I’ll reboot and report back.

I rebooted twice and successfully booted into both Manjaro and Windows through grub. I appear to no longer be greeted by “Welcome to grub” but it does work. Thank you for your help.
