[Stable Update] 2022-02-05 - Kernels, LibreOffice, KDE Gear, Nvidia, Calamares, VirtualBox, Pipewire, Mesa, Systemd

No problem. You gave me a workaround to fix this problem. :wink:

Glad that Manjaro settings manager is here to ‘fix’ this bug. :slight_smile:

Can I change mine normally, or is that not your problem?

T+ = See you later

A post was split to a new topic: My system freezes on the login screen

I found a way on another machine by doing this:
pikaur -S pipewire-jack lib32-pipewire-jack

this way I didn’t have to de-install any software depending on it and it just replaced it. pikaur is a tool just like yay. probably works pacman as well


Sleep doesn’t work for me anymore. It’s just send me to screen lock and that’s all. How can I check it?

I was using the 5.14 kernel. 5.15 was installed according to MHWD but not showing in the grub options
5.10 was installed and showing in options but would just not boot - idle after entering my zfs encryption password.
this was resolved by removing 5.15 and re-installing it at the command command line

outstanding issue: my RTX3070 does not start - could it be that the optimus-manager package in AUR is marked as out of date?

have you removed kernel 5.14 EOL ?

A post was split to a new topic: Signature from “Ray Sherwin slick517d@gmail.com” is unknown trust

I made a post about it here.

The error’s been there since before this update. No replies on the post though - so I don’t have a solution for you.

Chances are your AX200 should work just fine & the error can be ignored.

Hello! I am having some issues where my wifi continually disconnects and reconnects. From looking at the system journal, it looks like my device is roaming back and forth between two access points and failing to authenticate. This causes gaps in network connectivity. This was not an issue prior to the update. I have an Inspiron 5515 with an Intel AX200 wifi card. Interestingly, after some research, I disabled IPv6 on the wifi connection and the problem has dissipated although that has happened just from me toggling the wifi on and off.

02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (rev 1a)

I can upload a snippet of my journal if that will be useful.

OS: Manjaro 21.2.3
Kernel: x86_64 5.16.5-1-MANJARO
DE: Plasma 5.23.5

I also had Bluetooth issues, which were fixed a while ago. The problem was that my Headphones always disconnected and reconected randomly, with time gaps between 1 sec and 10mins, but it always happend. (Happend with pulseaudio and pipewire. I am using pipewire and in general I have a much better experience than with pulseaudio. Aptx works great for example).
I do have the Intel AX200 bluetooth device, so it seems to be related.

With the recent linux-firmware update (20220119), this issue sadly returned.
I downgraded linux-firmware to the version i used before (20211216), rebooted and it’s fixed again for now. Hopefully this will be resolved again, so I can install future linux-firmware updates.

Kernel: 5.16.5-1-MANJARO

yes I did, I should have mentionned it.

the issue is now resolved after:

  • removing optimus-manager
  • reinstalling the graphics driver (remove and auto install non-free)
  • rebooting
  • reinstalling optimus-manager (from AUR)

I can now use my external monitor again :wink: while keeping long battery life when away from a power socket

A post was split to a new topic: Games that use d3d11 or d3d12 do not run under wine

A weird bug: if using PipeWire and EasyEffects, every time VLC starts playing a new file, the volume is reset to 100%.

Solution: install pamac install wireplumber

Related bug:

This hopefully fixes the issue: pamac install wireplumber

My laptop sound is no longer recognised after the update. pavucontrol thinks I have no output devices. This used to happen after restoring from hibernation, and a cold boot used to fix it. Now, it seems permanent…

Hi @Lewis2e,

Best would be to create a separate, new Support thread, and provide the necessary information:

Thank you.

While working through the steps to gather the information needed for a support post, I found the problem (which, I guess, is the point of having that guide! It did its job).

Fixed by installing the package sof-firmware

I’m seeing the steam blackscreen issue, but the workaround doesn’t seem to be working for me?

Ah, I investigated Steam shows black screen only since last update but this is a different issue, as the entire UI is black, not just the webview.

This is also affecting some games, such as Loop Hero and Factorio.


Rebooting twice while changing nothing else seemed to fix it?
