[Stable Update] 2020-11-04 - Kernels, Nvidia 455.38, LibreOffice, Plasma5, Frameworks, Apps, Gnome 3.38, Deepin

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

There is no difference. Manjaro is a curated rolling-release distribution. The .iso images are only snapshots.

Was seeing a lot of errors "systemd: Failed to start Application launched by gnome-session-binary.

I’ve migrated my home folder through several upgrades and at least one new pc build, apparently I’d accumulated some cruft.

Check your ~/.config/autostart I had a lot of desktop files in there for software I no longer have installed.

Increasing memlock fixed it for me. I found this very helpful: io_uring throws and exception · Issue #972 · MusicPlayerDaemon/MPD · GitHub
I edited /etc/security/limits.conf

This is my issue ─ only reporting it here, as I have opened a separate thread. :arrow_down:

Mamamia… Please do a search about the program called Timeshift. Why would anyone reinstall the whole system? Also why would you update your system if you’re working on something urgent don’t take any risk. Two noob errors I hope you’ll learn from that experience that should not have happened :stuck_out_tongue:


Gnome-Passwordsafe is not starting after update.

Here i found on gitlab why:

Hi there, pykeepass 3.2.1 changed the Error Exceptions in a minor release and uses now an CredentialsError rather an CredentialsIntegrityError (among other things).
So the old 3.99.2 release will never work with a pykeepass 3.2.1 package. For arch there might be essentially 2 solutions: 1) use an older pykeepass with that version of passwordsafe or 2) update to a currently still unreleased (and still changing) git release or 3) wait for the next release of passwordsafe which will work with pykeepass >=3.2.1.
Essentially nothing that passwordsafe can do about now. It is fixed in master.

Would it be a way to keep pykeepass on the old version in Manjaro until the next update of Gnome-Passwordsafe?

rebooted kde all went well. I like that now the manjaro boot menu is full screen on my montior and apparently it looks like the plasma team changed the clock on the taskbar to include the date. :+1:

Because that’s how it works. For some reason it’s not appreciated to keep an installation running for several years. Then there’ll be that one update that doesn’t cleanly update all installations to the same state and (maybe some time later) at one point one of the releasers say “Oh, I didn’t know anyone was still using it.”. And I’m not talking about installations that were highly customised.

It does make sense to reinstall every now and then. Rolling releases have that downside. It’s just how it is.

BTW, I’m not saying a reinstallation is bad, but it becomes bad when it’s being forced on you. Just find a weekend or something to get this done :slight_smile: And yes, timeshift is nice, I’ve never had the need to restore my system, though.


Same problem here. How did u downgrade to the older version?

After update when I input “df” in terminal I get “df: /run/user/1000/doc: Operation not permitted” as first string and new last string was added:
tmpfs 3287620 164 3287456 1% /run/user/1000
How to fix this error?

That not true especially in that case the user could have clicked one button to rollback the system. As I said he made two mistake, first rushing an update when he was working on something important, and second he does not backup his system (and actually third error due to previous errors, he reinstalled when it was not needed without troubleshooting his issue).

What is true though is that a rolling release needs maintenance and the user needs to be aware of important changes that could occur, I give you that, from time to time on a rolling release.


I was so excited to get this update, but now I am facing a problem from “vtk” that prevents me from updating. I got a ton of errors saying “file.foo already exists in filesystem” in which the file names differ. Should I just try to delete the conflicting directories “/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/vtkmodules” " and “/usr/share/doc/vtk-8.2” and try again?

Manjaro GNOME here.

One of the updates of today was stopped by an already existing default.pa file in /var/lib/.config/pulse. I just sudo-su’ed in and renamed the file, then the updates went through. All seems to work for now in the Pulse-Audio department ;-).

My laptop screen is flickering and jumping around after this upgrade (gnome) and switching to the 5.9 kernel. reventing to 5.8 seems to fix but i notice that 5.8 is EoL.

If i go into gnome settings and change the refresh rate and back again - then all OK with 5.9.

Very strange. Any idea why there is an issue with 5.9? using Acer Laptop with intel HD 605.

Thanks. I’ll give it a go.

Thanks, that worked by generating locale using locale-gen.
Sorry for being newbie I have two questions : if I use one locale for display (english) and another one for units (metric) and date should I generate them both using locale-gen? And why KDE settings is useless and does not do this by itself when choosing language ?

Bare metal r5 3600 and VBox VM both went smoothly.
Thanks Manjaro guys, you rock!

1.3 Gig of download - 6.1 Gig of files, all ok.
I had no reasons to post an hostile or incredibly impolite stuff.

Well done :wink:

After Update:
Some minor odd behavior from DashToDock (Can’t add the correct pamac as a favorite)
Had to re-install Evolution, it stopped connecting to exchange for loading contacts.

I did this yesterday. I’m busy right now, but here’s a basic rundown of what I had to do which made rebooting work successfully. I copied the pamac log to Notepadqq to be able to search in it. I did a search in the pamac log for “pacnew” and found that I had 3 pacnew files to resolve. I did that manually. One of them was a dangerous-looking one with mkinitsomethingorother. I used Meld and compared the pacnew file with my file, and carefully chose which modules to use, or something like that. The others were for pulseaudio, and I had to keep the modules that break everything by auto-switching stuff disabled. After rebooting, everything worked as normal.

I really wish pulseaudio would have those broken modules disabled by default. They switch my microphone to go through my speakers and they stop my microphone from working after a while for no reason, and when I had them not disabled, I had to manually switch my input around in the pulseaudio tray icon to fix it before any zoom/skype/discord/etc. call or else my microphone wouldn’t work, and would start playing through my speakers. So nuts.

Anyway, my computer boots and has all the workarounds I needed to figure out completely alone because nobody talks about these problems.

Thanks for the update, Manjaro team! None of the problems I’m talking about are specific to Manjaro, and it’s on pulseaudio, and up to me to track the bugs there.
