Known issues and solutions

This is a wiki post; please edit as necessary.
Please, consider subscribing to the Stable Updates Announcements RSS feed


Please don’t post to say everything was great on my side but leave the space for people having issues, or even better: for people having solutions! :unicorn: :rainbow: :question:


New issues:

  • Freetype2 update may break applications such as Steam. For Steam the latest stable client update resolves the issue.

  • You might have issues to install this update by missing Maintainers keys. A possible solution might be:

    sudo rm -r /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
    sudo pacman-key --init
    sudo pacman-key --populate manjaro
    sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux
    sudo pacman -Syvv manjaro-keyring  # just to test for key-problems, as this would fail
    

    However, we recommend to remove the signatures of the failed packages in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and get the replaced ones from the Build-Server:

    sudo rm -v /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.sig
    sudo pacman -Syvv
    
  • You might be blocked updating when using pacman due to some libcanberra packages. Simply remove those packages: sudo pacman -Rdd lib32-libcanberra-pulse lib32-libcanberra-gstreamer libcanberra-pulse libcanberra-gstreamer. We recommend to use pamac anyway, which does this automatically: pamac update

  • Compiz packages like compiz-easy-patch got dropped from our repositories. Due to protobuf update you may need to rebuild that package locally on your end. Compiz-easy-patch removed from repos

    `signal-desktop-beta` doesn't want to build and fails with an error

    Solution:

       pamac remove signal-desktop-beta
       pamac install signal-desktop 
    
    Steam breaks completely and only shows a black screen

    Steam only displays a black screen in place of WebView elements such as the store & library panels. The issue is caused by an update to freetype2, so the easiest way to solve the problem is to opt into the Steam beta client
    :warning: Downgrading the freetype2 to version 2.10.4 would be a bad idea with something as important as freetype2 as other packages may break.

    Icon handling in `obmenu-generator` is broken

    Error message:

    obmenu-generator -i
    Can't locate object method "init" via package "Gtk3" at /bin/obmenu-generator line 386.
    

    Solution:

       pamac install perl-gtk3
    

Older Issues

No audio after Pulseaudio v15 update

Try clearing the databases in your home folder of any old settings by executing:

rm ~/.config/pulse/*.tdb ~/.config/pulse/cookie

Reboot afterwards.

Nextcloud problem and workaround

Problem:
After upgrading mariadb to 10.6.3-1 and executing

sudo systemctl restart mariadb.service && sudo mariadb-upgrade -u root -p

Nextcloud doesn’t work anymore showing several errors, all of them related to “InnoDB refuses to write tables with ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED or KEY_BLOCK_SIZE.

Workaround:
In /etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf under section [mariadb] put:

innodb_read_only_compressed=0

Workaround found here: Arch Forum - [SOLVED] Issues on nextcloud 22.0.0 and mariadb 10.6

KDE logo in splash screen instead of Manjaro logo
  • Backup / remove the old ksplashrc file
  • mv ~/.config/ksplashrc ~/.config/ksplashrc.bak
  • Go to System Settings
  • Type in Splash
  • Click on Splash Screen
  • Select and Apply your desired splash screen

Upgrade to at least version Version 2.8.11-2.0 as that should fix the bug by executing:

pamac upgrade
KDE krunner and Alt+F1 issues

Symptoms:

  • krunner does not work, no popup when typing on empty desktop and Alt+F2 shows an empty transparent window within a subdued black frame.
  • application launcher doesn’t open with Alt+F1, and when opened with mouse, the entries in the menu don’t work (restart, shutdown etc.).

Solution:

  • Reboot through sudo reboot
  • remove from ~/.config :
    • kglobalshortcutsrc
    • krunnerrc
    • plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc
  • change global theme and login screen to Breeze and reboot
  • login on tty and rm -rf ~/.cache
  • login on graphical screen
  • change global theme and login screen to Breath2 and reboot
KDE Plasma theme uses low contrast colors, harder to read

Symptoms:

  • You normally use a dark Plasma theme and notice that text on your Plasma menus, widgets, and tray are more difficult to read due to a lower contrast (light grey on dark grey).

  • This is due to the newly applied Breath2 2021 Dark Plasma theme.

  • breath2-2021-dark

Solution:

  • Switch back to your previously used Breath2 Dark or Breath Dark theme to bring back higher-contrast text.

  • System SettingsAppearancePlasma Style

  • breath2-original-dark

I am unable to perform the update, tried everything from above.

Solved, I just updated the mirrors…

This problem persist: https://github.com/StarLabsLtd/firmware/issues/18

After the update Steam broke completely, displaying only a black screen in place of WebView elements such as the store & library panels. The issue is caused by an update to freetype2.
Opting in to the Steam client beta seems to have fixed the issue on my end, however, downgrading freetype2 to version 2.10.4 is also a possible solution. (See post below)

This bug (outdated udev rules that disables important features from nvidia cards: audio over hdmi, USB xHCI Host Controller and USB Type-C UCSI devices) is still present (or at least my file /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules has not been updated).
If this is supposed to work only on new installations (but i think that the two usb devices are still not enabled in the last mhwd-db version) then we probably need to add an entry on the “Known issues and solutions” wiki that explain which lines comment/delete from /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules, otherwise everyone who hasn’t a fresh installation from the new iso will keep this bug forever (or add a script in a new update that patches the current installations)

A post was merged into an existing topic: Kvantum themes will set but change slightly after closing Kvantum manager

Last stable update (2021-08-27) broke xbacklight, as I noted in that update’s topic. This update did not fix it.

This pertains to a Lenovo ThinkPad running Manjaro KDE under 5.13.13-1 and now 5.14.0-0. By “broke”, I mean that I am no longer able to adjust the backlight using e.g. xbacklight -dec 5 , whether executed as root or an unprivileged user. However, writing directly to the appropriate interface in /sys/class/backlight/ seems to work, even when unprivileged (the latter being due to the udev rule that I use).

For now my hacky workaround is to add a function to my .bashrc that does the write for me:

# Interim replacement for xbacklight
bklt() { echo "$1" > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness ; }

Edit: Formatting

This update broke icon handling in obmenu-generator.

obmenu-generator -i
Can't locate object method "init" via package "Gtk3" at /bin/obmenu-generator line 386.
sub get_icon_path {
    my ($name) = @_;

    state $gtk = do {

        require Digest::MD5;

        ($CONFIG{gtk_version} == 3)
          ? do {
            eval "use Gtk3";
            'Gtk3'->init;
            'Gtk3';
          }
          : do {
            require Gtk2;
            'Gtk2'->init;
            'Gtk2';
          };
    };

Edit:
https://github.com/trizen/obmenu-generator/issues/41

Seems it’s now using gtk3 by default. Installing ‘perl-gtk3’ fixes it.

Not sure what information is needed to add, please let me know.
While trying to run a VM with Display Spice set to “Virtio” with “3d acceleration” enabled, I am getting below error:

Error starting domain: internal error: qemu unexpectedly closed the monitor: 2021-09-05T11:29:39.328865Z qemu-system-x86_64: -device virtio-vga-gl,id=video0,max_outputs=1,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x1: opengl is not available

Workaround: I am using QXL or disable 3d acceleration in virtio and works fine.

Edit: Steam also opens but displays a black window, both in the main but in the promotions also. This is reported elsewhere to such as reddit. Looks like something is wrong with OpenGL

A post was split to a new topic: KMail and KOrganiser issue after last update

qemu 6.1 with machine type pc-q35-6.1 breaks my mac os vm, hang at boot.
qemu 6.1 with machine type pc-q35-6.0 is ok.

It’s not related to changes in qemu DSDT, currently investigating.

gnome-shell-extension-nightthemeswitcher version 52-1 is only intended for GNOME 41. It doesn’t work on GNOME 40. Please remove version 52-1 from the repository until Manjaro GNOME moves to GNOME 41.

The update again wasn’t seen by the package manager GUI. Had to to a pacman -Syyu in order for it to find the new packages. After updating, everything is working fine.
