[Stable Update] 2022-07-21 - Cinnamon 5.4, Kodi Game-Addons, Pipewire 0.3.56, KDE-Git

error t=2022-07-21T13:00:19Z
[xapp-status@cinnamon.org]: No JS module ‘recordingIndicator’ found in search path
[xapp-status@cinnamon.org]: Error importing applet.js from xapp-status@cinnamon.org

After updating, I get the Cinnamon message where it tells me an applet or extension didn’t load properly, checking the logfiles shows this, XApp Status Applet is also a system applet so It’s not something I can just change and uninstall.

I ran VB for years and dealt with all these little quirks over the last year i converted my VB image to qcow2 and starting using KVM… is there any particular reason you arent running KVM… its native built into the kernel… just convert your virtual box image to qcow2 and you are off the races!! and no more crap shoot every update


Not fast enough. :angry: It’s been 18 hours since the release of the July 21 Stable Update.

EIGHTEEN HOURS AGO! Why are they waiting so long to release the next Stable Update?

I want to use KDE 8 alpha pre-release right now. They introduced “sparkly windows”, which surrounds the application’s window border with an animated lighting effect, which you can customize and sync with your bluetooth RGB light strips! I NEED this feature. It’s not fair that Arch Linux, Gentoo, and KDE Neon get to have all the fun before us! :sob:

Following the update (a combination of the 7-18 & 7-21 patches) and reboot I now have the AUR package celt pending an AUR update.

I did not manually install this package, was it something that was moved to the AUR? Can I just remove this package safely?

Edit: I can find celt being removed from the changelog of the testing 7-20 update but not from any record on stable release posts. I don’t know why so any advice on what to do with this package is welcome.


Thank you @Cytomax for the tip. I once read something about that conversion, but in the end I just forgot about it. I will try it.


Even if the AUR support is disabled in Pamac?

If you use pamac to install packages and you haven’t enabled AUR support, then indeed, obviously, AUR (optional) dependencies will not be suggested.
But if that package was previously in the main repositories, and you installed it when it was still there, then whether you have AUR support enabled now or not is irrelevant. That package is installed and dependencies must still be resolved, whether your system can find its repository or not.

pamac in terminal can still access AUR package ( use -a or –aur ) even if AUR support is disabled in pamac-manager GUI

blueman-applet seems a bit buggy with this update, but everything else is dandy.

A very interesting and potentially useful tip. Thanks.

libkipi-22.04.0.tar.xz … FAILED (unknown public key BB463350D6EF31EF)

I resolved this with

pamac remove libikipi

pacman -Qi libkipi will tell you if the package is being used for anything

Thanks for your reply. The rest of the packages updated with no problem, but I’m still getting the same problem. It’s not a major problem, doesn’t affect usability, but I’d rather have it cleared up if possible.

I checked dependencies, and it seems to be required by grass, the GIS program, so I’m reluctant to just remove it, since I do use that app.

But how can we remove celt 0.11.3-5 ?

Atleast i have no option in pamac UI.

I got the same message. I have solved by clicking on 3 points and then “refresh databases”.

grass can be compiled using the official python-wxpython now (may have some glitches though), so you can modify the PKGBUILD of grass to build it.
The package python-wxpython-dev can be built on my side, so need more people for troubleshooting. Please visit the AUR page and report the issue there.

You indeed need to do so from the Browse or Installed tab instead of the Update tab.

What does it do the final “w”?

This from man pacman:

       -w, --downloadonly
           Retrieve all packages from the server, but do not install/upgrade
