FIXED with qt5-wayland 5.15.5+kde+r38-3 (KDE Wayland: Kickoff "KDE menu", notifications and tooltips show in the upper left corner)
  • This is due to an upstream packaging bug, which has since been reverted.
  • In the meantime, you can (temporarily) disable the associated Wayland feature (thanks @ufo_driver):
sudo echo 'export QT_WAYLAND_DISABLE_FIXED_POSITIONS=1' > /etc/profile.d/qt5-wayland-regression.sh
FIXED missing dependency 'gcc8-libs=8.5.0-1' required by gcc8
  • This happens even while gcc8-libs are already installed (8.5.0-1).
  • Fixed by manually uninstalling gcc8 and gcc8-libs.

wxWidgets 3.2 update may need manual intervention

Packages have been renamed from wxgtk- to wxwidgets-. The GTK2 frontend is no longer provided. If you have wxgtk2 installed, the upgrade will fail with:

In such case, uninstall wxgtk2 first and then proceed with the upgrade.

Locale file changes

C.UTF8 locale is now included in glibc:

Credits @diabonas for this change. Systemd wants us to include C.UTF8 by default and it seems the locale may be in included by glibc upstream in the future. To fix building and avoid nasty fixing in devtools, we include the locale in the package. See systemd/systemd#23252 (comment) FS#74864 : [systemd] >= 251 breaks devtools' locale

There is a pacsave for /etc/locale.conf as it has been removed from the filesystem package. /etc/locale.conf will automatically be restored if it did not already exist.

There is a pacnew for /etc/locale.gen. Please review it and regenerate your locale if necessary.

Chromium / Google Chrome cannot save files to most folders (GNOME and Xfce)

This is an upstream bug with the package xdg-desktop-portal-gnome

In the meantime, you can try to remove the package xdg-desktop-portal-gnome (if feasible, without any dependency issues or conflicts), or wait for the bug to be fixed upstream.

Without any xdg-desktop-portal-* packages, Chromium and Google Chrome should correctly detect the environment and present either KDialog (KDE) or GTK file picker (GNOME, Xfce) upon saving and downloading files.

An alternative workaround, for now, is to intentionally click on the filename field, and then press Enter to save / download the file.

libkipi: Pamac fails to build the package from AUR
  • libkipi is a deprecated dependency for some KDE applications, and has been moved to AUR.
  • When using Pamac graphically, you can disable the update for libkipi, before removing it from your system.
  • When using Pamac from the terminal, you can proceed the update in multiple steps:
pamac upgrade --no-aur
pamac remove libkipi
pamac upgrade --aur

QEMU >= 7.0.0 changes split package setup

2022-05-09 - David Runge

With the update to qemu 7.0.0 the package has been turned into a more fine grained split package utilizing meta packages.

  • The qemu package is now virtually provided by the meta packages qemu-base, qemu-desktop and qemu-full.
  • The functionality of qemu prior to 7.0.0 is replaced by qemu-desktop
  • The functionality of qemu-headless is replaced by qemu-base
  • The functionality of qemu-arch-extra and qemu-headless-arch-extra is replaced by qemu-emulators-full
  • The meta package qemu-full provides all QEMU related packages (excluding qemu-guest-agent)

3 posts were split to a new topic: Screechy sounds in my system

I’m on KDE and after this update, all my notifications and KRunner show up on the top-left corner of my screen.

What could be causing this?

@philm Is there any reason why this update wants to install the package base, when it was not needed before?

base: “Minimal package set to define a basic Arch Linux installation”


From what I understand, base is an Arch Linux metapackage, and doesn’t actually install anything. It’s just used for fresh Arch Linux installations to pull in the necessary packages (as dependencies) to streamline the setup process.

Not sure why it wants to install now, after all this time, on Manjaro with this update…

Manjaro should by default already have these necessary packages pre-shipped with their ISOs anyways.

Are you on Wayland or X11?

See this related thread:

warning: cannot resolve "libcap=2.65", a dependency of "lib32-libcap"
:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      lib32-libcap

How to resolve this, tnaks

Wayland.

That thread seems to describe my issue, yes. Thank you!

I believe this is part of resolving manjaro-keyring becoming an orphan after some package changes.

After this update, my touchpad is unusable with Kernel 5.19-rc8.

EDIT: Manjaro repos have updated qt5-wayland 5.15.5+kde+r38-3 which does not need workaround below.

All KDE Wayland users, as a workaround for “top left corner” issue you can create file /etc/profile.d/qt5-wayland-regression.sh with following contents

export QT_WAYLAND_DISABLE_FIXED_POSITIONS=1

The issue was caused by this commit which was reverted 4 hours ago. I found the workaround in this commit which caused the issue.

Sorry, I am never sure whether we are supposed to reply or start a new post.

With today’s update I had an error and the upgrade could not be completed. It seemed that python-beautifulsoup4 already existed (“file already exists”) for a number of associated files.

These were not installed by pip. Their location was “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/bs4/tests/”

My solution was to remove them through pacmac and the application that was dependent on them, in this case calibre ebook manager.

After this action the update completed normally with no errors.
SOLVED

I saw this again after reboot:

How soon is this fix likely to make it to Manjaro? I’m debating on not updating until this one has been fixed. (Yes I know there’s a workaround, I just don’t care to do it.)

I still see KDE menu misplaced on my screen after writing that workaround. Am I supposed to delete the menu panel and create another one hopping everything is going to be Ok?

According to Branch Compare, qt5-wayland has been updated but I’m not at my computer to test. Can you confirm?

Wake up from suspend are very slow on 5.18.14
It recognizes no mouse / keyboard inputs.
Stuck at lockscreen
5.18.15 does not have a fix for that.
