[Stable Update] 2021-09-04 - Kernels, Wine, Deepin, KDE Gear, Maui-Kit, Plasma

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.

It’s been replaced with 51-2.

First update, since the nvidia 470 drivers came out, where I had to walk through the steps to enable Wayland again. /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules was the culprit.

For anyone else looking for the steps after this update:

Can someone please have a look at the issue with xorg-server 1.20.13-3?

These Debian upstream packages are no good.

" Use intel ddx only on pre-gen4 hw, newer ones will fall back to modesetting"

What and why? I have gen8 hardware nd now falls back to modesetting. With modesetting I have screentearing and all the bad stuff.

Besides of that: this is a breaking change for many users. The modesetting driver uses different screen-display names. eDP1 becomes eDP-1 and so on. Breaks my whole xrandr seat setup, my i3 config, my lightdm config and so many other places where these identifiers are used.

I know there is a discussion going on. Big distributions drop xf86-video-intel because that driver sees to be unmaintained and in bad state of quality.

Switching to linux kernel 5.14.0-0 broke my graphics completely: it became a kaleidoscope. Couldn’t see anything, just colourful lines everywhere on my Dell XPS 9575 2-in-1. Had to switch back to 5.13.13.

How do I turn on logging when booting with this faulty kernel? To whom do I send it?

Arghh… I just performed my weekly system update. Running 5.10 LTS kernel and QEMU OpenGL is broken – cannot start any of my VM’s from VMM. I’m also getting “hanging” when copying a large file – Konsole stops responding for minutes at a time.

I had the black screen issue with Steam last night as well, I fixed it by using pamac to install steam-native

sudo pamac install steam-native

It was mentioned here:

I just did the update with GUI.
I now have a screen (main monitor on my left) where all of my apps and the launcher is, that is unresponsive.

I can see it, desktop icons, my panel at the bottom, (though it is all rearranged in icons and layout.) and I can even drag this browser window from the right monitor over to the left and interact in the browser on the left while it is there, but Nothing else is selectable, or usable on the left.

The renders me unable to do much.

Any suggestions?

Thanx!

[update]

And finding now that nothing on the right monitor is usable EXCEPT for the open browser, in which I am automatically set to open to this page.

So… new diagnostic is that the ONLY mouse GUI interaction I have now is within the google-chrome-stable browser.

I almost never have an upgrade issue.

After updating through GUI and hitting this issue, I tried the terminal with pacman -Syyu.
Ended with Nothing to do.

Manjaro is so stable… even through updates, that I can’t remember how to get more information on the problem, because it has been so long!

Hi,

I am having trouble with audio since update of Aug 27. I have deleted my pulseaudio config tpl files as indicated in known issues thread and rebooted, but upon reboot my integrated speaker is detected as headphones. microphone also doesn’t work in chromium anymore.

inxi output

Device-1: Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-2: NVIDIA GP107GL High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Sound Server-1: ALSA v: k5.13.12-1-MANJARO running: yes

Sound works flawlessly on 5.12 and i believe on previous 5.13 version, too Hi, I am having trouble with audio since the update. I have deleted my pulseaudio config tpl files and rebooted, but upon reboot my integrated speaker is detected as headphones.

Sound works flawlessly on 5.12 and 5.13 before 5.13.12-1

KDE is my desktop

System data shows no PulseAudio, only Pipewire. Deleting PulseAudio files will not help with Pipewire

I suggest you start a new topic in the sound category and add the Pipewire tag
And post a through description of the audio issues
with system data inxi -Fazy and any Pipewire diagnostic data
