Flawless update via TTY

Yes yes yes. Thank you guys!

okay, it's mpv problem:

Has linux-firmware fixed iwlwifi and Intel Wireless AC 9260/9560 been fixed? I don't want to end up with no wifi again. Please someone confirm.

An odd choice for a rolling release distro. It feels like it'll only serve to unfairly favour freeoffice, when your competition is one major version behind.

Not really, this is the STABLE branch and therefore is running the STABLE release of libreoffice. This isn't something that is new, the stable version of libreoffice was always the default version but you can choose the fresh version if that is what you prefer to run.

In XFCE the key assignments seem to be a bit screwed up after the recent update, at least the F keys (F1, F2 etc.). Any idea for a fix?

Great work. Thank you, Manjaro Team :slight_smile:

Update on XFCE went through fine, however LibreOffice is still on version Version: 6.1.6.3
(Build ID: 6.1.6-2). Am I missing something here?

I've an old slap-top that I stream to my flat screen tv. I used to leave the HDMI cable attached and boot with no problem. Now the slaptop boots trying to out put to the tv (even when tv is off) and the monitor on the slaptop is scrambled. Thus I can not read the grub menu! I also lost my panel, which freaked me...

After walking the dog........

I unplugged the HDMI and my panel returned, poof! All is well except I must boot with the HDMI cable unplugged. :slightly_frowning_face:

No issue with the update. Now to adapt to Xfce GTK+3.

For now, two things i stumbled into:

  • panel transparency is disabled by default. Now one needs to choose a solid color with a transparency in the color picker for the panel (i go with full black with ~80% transparency)
  • volume notifications got disabled. "Xfce volume control" can be enabled again from the notification settings.

if you choose to remove libplacebo-git (which seems to be from the aur), it will get replaced by the libplacebo from manjaro repos.
I would suggest to do it, so it would prevent any further dependency conflicts. However, if you need the git version of libplacebo for your work or something then it's a different matter.

After this update I had issues with xfce4-notifyd-gtk3:
