Thanks! Exactly what I was looking for
[Stable Update] 2022-05-23 - Kernels, Toolchain, NVIDIA, Mesa, KDE, Qt, Maui, LibreOffice, Plasma, Firefox, Thunderbird
If you don’t know what those are about: Uniform look for Qt and GTK applications - ArchWiki
gnome-calculator: Ctrl-Z stop working after this upgrade.
Akonadi with MySQL/MariaDB fails too often for me. Switched to PostgreSQL instead.
I think this is related to… "Hotspot Login" pops up in Network Login app when waking from sleep - #17 by GaVenga
I use ethernet, not wifi, and I am getting “
Wired Ethernet: Connected to Ethernet (log in required)” on mouseover of my network connection systray icon… there was a similar “Network Manager” popup I closed; dismissing it knowing I didn’t need to login to my ethernet network before realizing it was also echo’d in the systray.
In my case,
/usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/20-connectivity.conf is pointing to http://ping.manjaro.org/check_network_status.txt, which if I open in a browser throws a
404 Page not found.
I’ve updated my file to include a few of the typical replacements/options, opting to use KDE for now:
[connectivity] #uri=http://ping.manjaro.org/check_network_status.txt #uri=http://www.archlinux.org/check_network_status.txt #uri=http://nmcheck.gnome.org/check_network_status.txt uri=http://networkcheck.kde.org
…and all was well after a service restart with
$ sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager
I’m not sure about the errors with
but the UI errors seemed to have been fixed after a few restarts.
after update, no sound output from any application.
Sound Blaster Z, pipewire-git & wireplumber. Only dummy output sink available.
My solution: rebuild all AUR pipewire packages in use:
After GNOME session restart, sound worked normally.
Also Wi-Fi started displaying “log-in required” popup for some reason (it works fine, though).
Posts #5 and #6 (in the linked thread) show you a workaround by creating a new
.conf file and restarting the
NetworkManager service. You can keep this change as a permanent solution too, there’s no harm done.
I’ve just noticed that my whole desktop (KDE) went black - no wallpapers, no icons. Any help is appreciated.
Correct - but:
exists in system already (I use Gnome)
what is your DE?
with no desktop you mean completely blank screen?
provide more info
Since you’re on KDE.
Are you using dual monitors? Can you test it out with only a single display?
Otherwise, you can try the following to see if it helps out:
Log out of KDE
Switch to TTY2:
- CTRL + ALT + F2
Login to this TTY2 terminal
sudo systemctl stop display-manager
- Move/delete the old
mv -v $HOME/.local/share/kscreen $HOME/.local/share/kscreen.bak
- Rebuild the KDE cache:
Wait about 30 seconds
Then finally restart the
display-managerservice and login to KDE:
sudo systemctl restart display-manager && exit
KDE. Yes completely black screen, but taskbar and windows are OK (that’s why I haven’t even noticed that at first).
You’re not supposed to touch that file. You’re supposed to create a new “drop in” file under
Then let us do …/30–stupid.conf
The offending url is inside this holy file - so you ignore “not to touch the earth” file
or nothing will change - although time changes everything
B.t.w.: today is the first day of the rest of your life!
Thank you, thank you, it did the trick. At first it looked weird with random wallpapers and the taskbar gone, but after resetting the display settings (laptop + external display) it was back to normal.
