[Stable Update] 2021-05-19 - Kernels, Nvidia, KDE Frameworks, Plasma, Systemd, LibreOffice, KDE Gear Mobile, FF, TB

Me neither, and when something like this happens for the 3rd time in couple of months on a computer from work, it’s a problem. I noticed someone else posted the same problem in 13-5 update, no solution yet. And only three posts about this error, we’re not getting help any time soon Search results for '_ZN14KWindowEffects11slideWindowEP7QWindowNS_17SlideFromLocationEi' - Manjaro Linux Forum

Why would you even add nvdia drivers update if it’s not ready yet. Literally spent hours fixing it, eventually ending up with nouveau. :-1:


@Manjaro team After update the reboot was necessary → my reboot stopped with black screen. I had to do 2 times (twice) Ctrl+Alt+Del in order to make reboot hapenning successfully. Should I (or could I) do something about this ?

Similar to this? [Stable Update] 2021-05-19 - Kernels, Nvidia, KDE Frameworks, Plasma, Systemd, LibreOffice, KDE Gear Mobile, FF, TB - #68 by CalibratedCabbage

Right after updating, I started getting

The window switcher installation is broken, resources are missing.

Every time I ALT+TAB’d.
Haven’t rebooted yet

EDIT: reboot made it go away it seems

A post was split to a new topic: Make zsh default in Plasma and XFCE editions

A post was split to a new topic: Imagemagick6 build problem

@CalibratedCabbage My reboot issue does not look (to me) like yours. I had this quite minor issue only in one desktop, not in laptops. My now, after this (Ctrl+Alt+Del) was done, this does not happen any more in the desktop in question.

The amdgpu-bug causing a lockup after suspend still seems present in 5.12.2
Haven’t dared to check latest 5.11, as I will then lose 5.11.6, which is the last (known to me) working kernel from 5.11 without lockups after suspend (on my Ryzen 4600U-based laptop).

For anyone affected, 5.10.32+ seems fine, too.

Can be issue of your GTK theme, but similar one/related is already reported (if I’m not wrong).

You may downgrade pamac to the actual repo version.
sudo pacman -Syyuu

How long did you wait with the black screen? My laptop took much longer than usual on the next boot - looks like it was running fsck - but it booted up fine…

In case it helps, I had Compiz issues (on XFCE) after updating - including no ability to run CompizConfig. Chose to rebuild it (from within Pamac [10.0.6-2] “compiz-easy-patch”) and it required a new/updated dependency (sorry - clicked through accidentally before noting precisely what it was!).

After that rebuild and another restart, Compiz has been working as it was before the update.

Kernel 5.10.36-2-MANJARO

Can somebody help about real issues that make your routine suffer, instead of people reporting random inconveniences like “my buttons are all wrong” and burying other posts?


If people have issues, it is better to post in our support section so they can be addressed one by one. Also look if someone already posted about your issue.

is out of date : https://archlinux.org/packages/community/any/spyder/ we have same version
or downgrade python-decorator ?

After downgrading Python-decorator to 4.4.2-4 now Spyder launch just for few seconds then crashes :slightly_smiling_face:

Not sure if it’s relevant to post this here because I’m not sure it’s a distro specific bug, bug the fwupd package behavior completely changed after this update : I used to find several updatables components in the tool, and now with 1.6 and the added dependency fwupd-efi, it only shows an UEFI database (in terminal or in gnome-firmware).

Edit : sorry seems to be an normal behavior without AC plugged in…
