Ultimately my issue is that following the update everytime I try and log in through LightDM the screen flickers and then I end up back at the LightDM login screen. I’m using the i3 community edition (though I’ve additionally installed xfce for one of my users).
After reading more I think the issue is associated with my graphics card: AMD Cape Verde XT [Radeon HD 7770/8760 / R7 250X] - though I’m just guessing.
This isn’t in the list of known issues though - I wouldn’t mind trying the IgnoreABI option, but as the fix is for Nvidia not AMD, I’m not sure how this should be added (30-amd-ignoreabi.conf - at a complete guess?).
Someone who was generous enough to reply to my original post suggested moving over to Wayland. Happy to try that too, but thought I might enquire here first as I’m pretty sure it is related to this update.
About the preview ISO version, can it be compared to a Beta version or not ? As it contains the last stable packages, I guess I can install it like I can do with the Manjaro 21.1.6 version, isn’t it ? I mean by that I can make a new installation on a computer without ‘risks’.
Since the update I receive the error message /user.slice/user-1000.slice/session-1.scope is not a snap cgroup
upon trying to start any snap application. All snaps are uptodate.
Any hints on how I can resolve this?
Hi, I use Openbox, just want to report that after the update ob-autostart stopped working:
ERROR : All required python dependencies were not found!
Editing the script to show more detail revealed this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./test.py", line 16, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 30, in <module>

ImportError: libffi.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I checked https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/openbox#GUI_configuration, seems like ob-autostart was removed from the AUR
installing libffi7 from AUR fixed the problem:
First, as mentionned by @anemr, if you have an old laptop, with an old nvidia discrete GPU and you are using Bumblebee, the workaround put in place for making the 390 driver work with this update won’t work out of the box, because it’s placed in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d instead of /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.d/.
The following command and a reboot seems to be working ( + maybe check with systemctl if bumblebeed is working ok)
The second issue is strange, some custom icons in Gnome app drawer and in the doc (and probably in other places too …) have disappeared for several themes, including papirus and papirus maia … Adwaita is working fine though
Thanks for the update, and, as a manjaro user stuck with an old nvidia GPU, thanks for the effort of supporting our old graphic cards as long as possible.
The good news for me is that I put the 5.15x kernel I installed last night into suspend mode before retiring for bed. Resumed from sleep this morning without issue. I may have to keep this one!!! I am running the Nourveau driver, btw. Not Nvidia.
