:warning: AUR (Arch User Repository) packages are neither supported by Arch nor Manjaro. Posts about them in Annoucement topics are off-topic and will be flagged, moved or removed without warning.

:information_source: You may need to rebuild any AUR packages that install files to site-packages …

You may need to rebuild any Python packages you’ve installed from the AUR. To get a list of them, you can run:

pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9

And to rebuild them all at once with an AUR helper such as yay, you can do:

yay -S $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9) --answerclean All

But if any of the packages don’t work with Python 3.10 yet, this might fail halfway through and you’ll have to do rebuild the remaining ones one or a few at a time.

New issues:

Issues with Jack2 when using Pipewire.

Pipewire tend to replace all stuff related to Audio. This time jack2 seems to create issues. In the past pipewire-jack provided jack2. However, since the lack of dbus support that line got removed and only conflicts kept. So if you use jack2 with the dbus feature, you may want to remove the pipewire-jack package. If not you can continue and additionally install lib32-pipewire-jack package.

Last update removed linux514. What you can do.

Time to time we have to drop kernel series from our repos. So either you adopt to the new 5.15 LTS or choose any other still supported kernel we have.

sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux514
sudo pacman -Syu
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux515

New warnings when building the fallback initcpio - Possibly missing firmware for module: bfa, qed, qla1280, qla2xxx

That’s due to the recent changes to the linux-firmware package. Note these are warnings, not errors. You only need those firmwares if you have Mellanox Spectrum switches, Marvell devices, Qualcomm SoCs, Cavium LiquidIO server adapters, QLogic devices and Broadcom NetXtreme II 10Gb ethernet adapters. if you have that hardware you can install linux-firmware-qlogic to get rid of those warnings. If you do not have that hardware you can safely ignore those warnings.

pamac install linux-firmware-qlogic
Microsoft Teams does not open.

KDE Plasma shows visual graphical errors

This is a known issue based on changes within SVG files. Clearing the Plasma SVG cache fixes it. Do this: rm ~/.cache/*plasma* ; killall plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell

If did not help, try strengthened variant of clearing cache (to be sure that it is not the cache-related issue)
  1. Log out from user session to shutdown all KDE and user apps which could use the cache.
  2. Enter TTY, for example TTY3: Ctrl+Alt+F3.
  3. Login in that textual terminal.
  4. Clear all cache and extra KDE-related stuff by entering these 3 commands: KDE - ArchWiki.
  5. Type systemctl reboot to reboot PC.

Nvidia 495xx driver series drops Kepler support; need to manually switch to 470xx.

mhwd’s video-nvidia now provides 495xx; if you need 470xx you must manually switch before updating, by using the commands below.

With the new 495xx driver series a lot of Wayland adjustments got added. Also Nvidia decided to remove Kepler support. Therefore you may want to switch drivers to 470xx series, which still supports those graphic cards:

sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-470xx

Nvidia 340xx driver series no longer works.

This driver is end of life by NVIDIA, you should not be using it as there are serious security issues with this driver. You have to either get newer supported hardware or switch to Nouveau:

#remove old
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-340xx
sudo mhwd -r pci video-linux
#install new nouveau
sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux

Reboot after and you're done.
Shotcut Scrolling doesn't work any more in Cinnamon

You now need to hold down the (aka “the Windows key”) to make the mouse wheel scroll the timeline forwards & backwards. Source


Fullscreen loses focus

Symptoms:
Full-screen apps like YouTube and games:

  • Load fine but after briefly showing the application you’re dumped back into your Desktop Environment (DE) whilst the application was still running fine in the background.
  • Clicking on the running application briefly brings you back to it but you’re dumped again to the DE after a second or 2.

Solution:
disable the Desktop Icons (DING) extensions


SDDM shows wrong/default theme

Solution:

Set SDDM theme to Breath in System Settings / Startup and Shutdown / Login Screen (SDDM).


Steam shows black screen

:warning: Opting in or out for Steam beta changes nothing.

Workaround:

  • Open a terminal
  • Execute:
    LD_PRELOAD=/lib/libharfbuzz.so steam
    

Buzzing sound while using headphones.

Workaround:

  • Execute:
    sudo nano --backup /etc/tlp.conf
    
  • set SOUND_POWER_SAVE_ON_AC=0
  • Only if you have to, set SOUND_POWER_SAVE_ON_BAT=0 as well

No idea how much it affects battery life, though.


Unable to login in remotely using ssh using rsa keys

After this upgrade authentication might not work and might find the following error in the ssh log:

userauth_pubkey: key type ssh-rsa not in PubkeyAcceptedAlgorithms [preauth]

Good solution:

  • generate new keys using a more secure algorithm like ED25519

Lazy solution (acceptable for rsa keys with a length >= 3000bits):

  1. Execute:
    sudo nano --backup /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    
  2. copy-paste the following into the above file:
    PubkeyAcceptedAlgorithms=+ssh-rsa
    
  3. To save, press Ctrl+X Enter Y

It works now, but you’re still using SHA1 which has been showing weaknesses for years now (although it’s not actually cracked, it’s not recommended any more and why ssh disabled it)


QTile minimizes windows

floating_layout rules in a dict was deprecated a while ago


KDE Window Decorations UI with Drag&Drop broken

When going to System-SettingsWindow DecorationsTitlebar Buttons the UI interface doesn’t allow you to drag and drop buttons any more.

  • Clear your profile cache : HelpMore troubleshooting informationClear startup cache
  • If that does not work, create a new profile. See here how to do so while keeping your bookmarks, extensions and customization.

Brave segfaults / crashes

Solution:

  • Clear cache / Data
  • Re-install Brave afterwards

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

nVidia 4xx PRIME on kernel >= 5.5 has no audio

If you are using an nVidia card with the proprietary prime driver and you get no audio through the HDMI port or the USB devices of the card don’t work it’s because they have been disable due to a power management bug in the kernel. This bug has been fixed in recent updates, so if you are running a kernel with version >= 5.5 and the 4xx version nVidia driver you can fix those problems by editing the file /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules and commenting the following lines in this way.

  • To go from this:

    # Remove NVIDIA USB xHCI Host Controller devices, if present
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x0c0330", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
    # Remove NVIDIA USB Type-C UCSI devices, if present
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x0c8000", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
    # Remove NVIDIA Audio devices, if present
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x040300", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
  • to this:

    # Remove NVIDIA USB xHCI Host Controller devices, if present
    #ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x0c0330", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
    # Remove NVIDIA USB Type-C UCSI devices, if present
    #ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x0c8000", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
    # Remove NVIDIA Audio devices, if present
    #ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x10de", ATTR{class}=="0x040300", ATTR{remove}="1"
    
  • execute this:

    sudo sed -Ei '/"0x040300"/s/^/#/' /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules
    sudo sed -Ei '/"0x0c8000"/s/^/#/' /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules
    sudo sed -Ei '/"0x0c0330"/s/^/#/' /etc/udev/rules.d/90-mhwd-prime-powermanagement.rules
    

Freetype2 update may break applications
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

Note: there are 4 packages to remove: copy all those two lines of the command.
We recommend to use pamac anyway, which does this automatically: pamac update


Compiz packages got dropped from our repositories
wget now always outputs “SSL_INIT” to stderr every time it is run.

“Good news, everyone!” (Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth’s)

Since I was working on something I didn’t want to restart the PC until today Sunday to have time to reinstall just in case. My PC started without any visible or perceivable problems.

Kudos! Manjaro’s Team.

We haven’t heard from @MrE in over an hour! Send a scout down the hole and lay off of pamac until we know more about the situation.

Well, I have done it with tty. So far, so good.
Intel ivy-bridge, igpu, xfce, linux516.

Some mentioned problems are already fixed :

  • KDE Plasma shows visual graphical errors
  • KDE Window Decorations UI with Drag&Drop broken
  • No search results in application launcher when using multiple kickoff instances

Using pamac-manager for the update, I had an error that since pamac was unable to update /etc/dunst/dunstrc, the update would not be committed. I am running i3 on an Intel Celeron-based dual-boot PC.

Fixed it by uninstalling dunstify, which then is not available anymore to install. Probably should be automated.

Hope that helps.

Mesa got updated to 21.3.6

Mesa is now at 21.3.7

The first mention is redundant, Stable now has 21.3.7-1.
Thanks for another Stable update.

Thanks for the new updates. Especially for KDE plasma 5.24.2. :wink:
I was thinking we will have to wait until KDE plasma 5.24.3 to be in the stable branch.

I want to tell you that I tested Kde plasma 5.24.2 with the testing branch the previous days. I checked the problem that we had with the user’s avatar picture in the previous Kde plasma 5.23.5. Now, with kde plasma 5.24.2, changing the avatar picture is good through KDE settings but the system always display an error message (An error has occurred) after requesting my administrator password. Can you check it and perhaps report it to the KDE developers ?

Thanks.

I had a similar issue, a conflict involving dunstify (sorry, it’s in French):

Analyse des conflits entre fichiers...
La validation de la transaction a échoué:
conflit de fichiers :
- dunst : /usr/bin/dunstify existe déjà dans le système de fichiers (appartient à dunstify)

and couldn’t simply uninstall dunstify, since it is required by many other packages installed on my system.

bluetooth-keyboards get recognized and connected but they are without function. i tried 3 keyboards, it’s the same behaviour at all three of them. bluetooth-mice still works.

I have some icky locale issues after updating. Updated with pamac from TTY. This for example results in gnome-terminal failing to run with error:

# Locale not supported by C library.
#            Using the fallback 'C' locale.
# Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached

[Edit: fixed my problems. Used Manjaro Settings Manager to use the Locale Settings. They were empty as suspected. Set everything back the way it used to be. Saved. Regenerated initial ramdisk images with sudo mkinitcpio -P. No more errors. Everything back to normal.]

[Edit 2: updated a couple of other PCs also running Manjaro Stable/Cinnamon DE: no issues with those updates.]

Logs from problem below.

Corresponding errors in the pacman.log when generating the initial ramdisk image:

…look for /etc/locale.gen.pacnew .

I used pacdiff to check for .pacnew files after updating. There was nothing new.
/etc/locale.conf and /etc/locale.gen are back to normal (at least) after I used the Locale Settings in the Manjaro Settings Manager. No idea what happened. I am going to it a try on another PC now.

Intel AX200 Bluetooth is still broken after this update also. (WIFI part works (tested), but don’t care and not using it, as it’s desktop computer)

So basically bluetooth devices can’t connect. Because blueman-manager doesn’t find any controllers and doesn’t even start. And it seems I might not be the only one with ax200 problems with recent kernel/firmware/ucode updates – FS#73387 : [linux-firmware] Intel AX210 iwlwifi broken on kernel and firmware upgrade

Made an account to post this.

Plasma Wayland on NVIDIA has broken for me in this update. Just a black screen with blinking cursor. Installed gnome-shell just to test, and wayland works fine on that.

Probably due to my dual NVIDIA GPU setup. I’ll update the post if single GPU fixes it.

Edit: Single GPU fixes it.

Thank you for the heads-up… found it in my update log:

Upgrading glibc (2.33-5 -> 2.35-2)...
/etc/locale.gen installed as /etc/locale.gen.pacnew.

Using meld I noticed the pacnew file was the same except for one additional line; resolved with:

$ cd /etc
$ sudo rm locale.gen
$ sudo mv locale.gen.pacnew local.gen
$ sudo mkinitcpio -P
