I’ve just installed the update on my main machine and from what I can tell it went well for the most part.
Only thing I immediately noticed was that my mouse feels kind of “sluggish” now. When I move it smoothly, the cursor seems to lag/stutter ever so slightly. When I click and drag to select multiple files in my file manager (Thunar), the selection area most of the time does not appear immediately but only after one second or so. Anyone got any ideas?
I’m on XFCE (xorg) on a GTX 980Ti with proprietary drivers.
Edit: This persisted across reboots as well, however, strangely, after disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse the issue seems to be gone (for now). After a reboot it’s also still fine. Really weird
Regular update (with pamac) seemed fine (no apparent errors).
But after reading:
I followed the instruction and got 3 python 3.9 packages installed from the AUR. I checked one of them (auto-cpufreq) and I got an error. Therefore, I proceeded with the proposed solution to rebuild them all:
I didn’t got any errors while doing so. Everything seems to work fine.
Unfortunately after this update both blender 3.0 and blender 2.93.7 3D Viewport flashes while resizing. This is very annoying and probably has to do with the new mesa (or the new KDE). I tried deleting ~./cache* and Trolltech.conf file, but nothing changed. Same bug
The bug is easy to reproduce. Just try resizing the main window by dragging it. It happens on my laptop with nvidia graphics and on my desktop with integrated intel graphics.
pip (python package manager) was missing after update; (SOLVED)
Parts of the previous pip (for python3.9) was still present after the update not functioning (“no package owns /usr/lib/python3.9”), and pip3.10 was not automatically instsalled.
i’m using pip on a weekly basis, so it was most probably there before the update.
After reboot I reinstalled pip3.10 via the package manager (gui), because I wasn’t sure about the package’s name (python3-pip? python-pip3? python3-pip3? python3.10-pip?)
I install python-pip.
(i don’t know with manjaro whether it’s better to use the packange manager or install pip manually. Since this update wasn’t smooth, I’ll try to stick with the package-manager system; i think the previous was manually installed via getpip.py).
There was a real mess with previous pip3.9 executables litter (under ~/.local/bin/, in /usr/bin, multiple symlinks, real files, and stubs),
So I had to manually delete every pip* executable + remains.
Is this because I have some even older python packages installed? Can I have any advice on what to do about this? I’m rather over my head at this point!
(Edit: I did some googling and doing pacman -o on these, it looks like python2-beautifulsoup4 was installed as a dependency of another package, but is listed as “required by: none” - I am guessing that it is no longer needed but nervous about deleting it and causing a problem… Am I correct in thinking that this is the package that is causing the problem? I don’t seem to have python2-pytest installed… It looks like I have a few python2 packages from the AUR, and also listed as orphans…)
Sorry for lateness of reply.
I wrote the wiki-post item about pip.
Later I moved it to this separate post.
Later again, I realized that the whole idea (that I got from somewhere else) was flawed.
Now it uses ‘pip list’, and you don’t need to do it before the main upgrade.
So if you still have questions, and/or didn’t do it yet, please read that post again.
Thanks very much freggel.doe, it’s very useful to have that reassurance – I went through and removed all the python2 packages with pamac, checking first (using pacman with the -Qii option) that there was nothing unexpected that depended on them. I’m glad to say that all seems to have gone well, and removing the packages has indeed had no ill effect. After removing these, pamac updated my other AUR packages fine, and so the upgrade has now been successful. Many thanks again for the pointers!
Thanks @jgxvx , this works fine form me, I uninstall official package optimus-manager-1.4-1 and then I install optimus-manager-1.4-3 from AUR repository to compatibility with python 3.10 =) and then my second monitor works excellent =).
PS: I didn’t know optimus-manager package is not anymore on official repository.
I’m having an issue when attempting to update my system. This is the error
error: perl: signature from "Levente Polyak (anthraxx) <email@example.com>" is unknown trust
:: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/perl-5.34.0-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).
Do you want to delete it? [Y/n]
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
I am using the command sudo pacman -Syu and I attemped resetting the following solution but it didn’t work.
I believe that is the recommend solution and the other one says that is a possible solution and I don’t want to find out it broke pacman even more.
EDIT: I was able to fix it by attempting the other solution.
