[Stable Update] 2019-04-20 - Nvidia, Kernels, Deepin

One KDE Manjaro upgraded on my PC performed, and all went well :+1:, except Icecat browser did not load. I had to rebuild it, which takes at least two cupcakes and a glass of wine to accomplish. All else good. I will upgrade my laptop today, as soon as I find some more cupcakes. :cupcake::cupcake::wine_glass:

Does it also happen after a reboot?

So this was dde-file-manager, let's wait for fix presumably tomorrow.

Yep. Also when switching from kernel 5.* to 4.19.

Drives detect fine on the USB2 ports.

Is there a way to force pacman to reinstall the updated packages?
Midway through the update I noticed one mirror showing a "?" as status. Wonder if an old package got mixed in.

For some reason I cant lock desktop ! Not from Raven menu and not from User indicator either. I am on Manjaro budgie.

Okie, so USB3 ports function properly with kernel 4.4.167-1.

They don't work with 5.0.7-1 or 4.19.34-1, nor 5.1rc1.
I tried re-downloading and installing 5.0 but no luck.

Hopefully it will be resolved with the next update.

Thanks! But, is it possible to update the Gnome Password Safe? The version 3.30 is not generating the keyfile while the 3.32 is.

can you return

inxi -Fxxxz

have you tested also 4.14 ?
( USB3 Ko 5.1rc and 5.0 and OK 4.4)

Started the update today, then closed my laptop forgetting that I had started the update. I didn't realize I had updated again until it said [Transaction finished]. No issues whatsoever! Awesome job guys!

Just tried 4.14, also won't work. Overall system performance feels sluggish compared to the pre-update state.

Some readouts:

XFCE, 4.19.34-1

Everything went smoothly! Thanks for all the hard work.

After the update I have to enter the wifi password again. Nothing else. :blush:

KDE Plasma 5.15.4
Great job!

successfully updated cinnamon machine, using tty

Manjaro XFCE on a Thinkpad here. The update went fine mostly but TLP-UI is no longer opening unless I launch it with sudo in a terminal. Before the TLP update, running the command tlpui would prompt for the root password before opening the graphical interface for TLP. Now, running tlpui returns the following:

/usr/share/tlp/tlp-func-base: line 350: /etc/default/tlp: Permission denied
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.7/runpy.py", line 193, in _run_module_as_main

File "/usr/lib/python3.7/subprocess.py", line 487, in run
output=stdout, stderr=stderr)
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['tlp-stat', '-c']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

I have to run sudo tlpui to open the graphical interface. Aside of that, it seems TLP itself runs properly.

This is no big issue but if anyone knows how to fix that (i.e. have tlpui prompt for the root password instead of returning the above error), I'm interested :wink:

I voted for the second so I post here:
Internet connections disappeared on my plasma kde after this updates and I suppose that's for the update of plasma-nw package. I ran sudo systemctl restart/enable NetworkManager.service then it solved.


check file

ls -la /etc/default/tlp 

it should be rw-r--r--


Just updated. It's running perfectly. No problems.

Thanks @stephane! The permissions for that file on my system were rw------- so I ran

sudo chmod g=r /etc/default/tlp
sudo chmod o=r /etc/default/tlp

and now the graphical interface for TLP opens and I can make some changes. Whenever I save the modifications, I get a prompt for the root password, which is the correct behavior. Thanks for your help!
