[Stable Update] 2022-09-12 - Kernels, LibreOffice, KDE Gear, KDE Frameworks, Firefox, Thunderbird, Pipewire, Mesa

The Manjaro update itself was flawless. However, there’s a severe problem with Thunderbird 102.2.2. After moving some mails from an IMAP inbox to local folders, some mails are lost and others appear now as duplicates. AFAIK version 102 had some data corruption problems in the beginning, but they’re supposed to be fixed now. Apparently they’re not fully fixed. :frowning: I upgraded from TB 91.12.0.

Oh, this really hurts. I’ve been using TB for many years now and never experienced data loss. I’m not sure how to proceed. I could simply restore the profile from the latest backup, but what’s next? The bug won’t go away.

Yes: KDE 5.25.5 at last! I switched to the Unstable branch just over this update getting delayed for several weeks since its release, brings both new features and bug fixes I’ve been looking forward to. In addition I like the new slightly redesigned Thunderbird. Back on Stable again and everything’s working great.

I have a similar problem with autostart. I have some .desktop files in ~/local/share/applications which I want them autostart succesively, so I had added sleep commands to their exec lines. These sleep commands doesn’t work now. I fixed the issue by creating scripts to start them, then I channel the .desktop files to these scripts. Now it is okay for me.
edit: I found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/ves6mh/kde_autostart_mostly_no_longer_working/

I have openbox instead of kwin as window manager. After this update, my settings must have been overwritten because I see only kwin. Or maybe it’s just the defaults on kdm that reverted to kwin?

Anyone with a similar experience?

It’s not the login script; I had choosen kde/openbox, but the login was still using kde’s kwin. This might have been a change in KDE 5.25.

When trying to use openbox in the kdm dropdown option, it simply freezes.
From: KDE - ArchWiki I followed the instructions in “Replacing KWin service.” If I don’t post again, it means it has worked.
EDIT: it didn’t work. Openbox/kde is FUBAR after the update. I know it’s not a big portion of the market that has this setup. But I really need a solution as this is my main system and I depend on openbox to function. I can’t run openbox standalone from KDM either.

It seems I was wrong to attribute the lag to this update, I discovered that by coincidence BOINC was running some tasks at this time using the GPU, which in the past have made my desktop appear sluggish, when I suspended BOINC the desktop performance appeared normal. Actually I think otherwise my circa 2008 system is running marvellously for its age and old GPU.


After upgrade, everything is working well except Window Decoration! I am using Blur-Glassy-v2 as my Window Decoration which is transparent with a blur effect but after upgrade it is just transparent without any blur effect.

It’s really annoying, is there any solution?

I have the same problem too.
Did you fix it?

I had several times flickering/display-freeze apps. When make a input (like mouse move), click in another app, the problem app one time refresh the view (the input from before). Only the display of this app (only one app at time) is flickering/frezze until the click in another app. This game I can play a long time. It seems only happens after long time on (>8 hours) or big swap maybe … 1st time I see a error like this.
5.19 kernel, plasma X11, AMD graphics
Happens with apps like Vivaldi, SMplayer, audacious, firefox

I created another Topic, it looks like that our Theme needs to be updated from the maintainers.


Hello, I thank all the participants who create excellent manjaro systems, though I am very grateful that all this is there. After updating to 5.25 plasma, when the lid is closed (there is a shutdown command), the laptop goes into standby mode, and when the lid is opened, it just freezes and turns off only with the power button. On 5.24 there is no such thing. Also, the labels on the table are constantly changing their location. I have Bumblebee and nvidia 820m, together with i5 intel. In this regard, I rolled back the updates through TimeShift, and installed everything except the plasma modules 5.25. I think over time it will all get better, but for now I think plasma 5.24 will be better for me

Same problem, rolled back. Only the kernel I have is 5.15


Why not quote the actual solution?
Why not add it to first post? Unsatisfactory…

kwriteconfig5 --file startkderc --group General --key systemdBoot false

Suspend resume works with the 5.19 kernel.

Thanks, I’ll try, but as far as I remember with the 5.19 kernel, I had other difficulties (I don’t remember exactly which ones)

Sounds amazing :vulcan_salute: Which Platform are you using Intel or AMD CPU?
Also stick with 5.15 because of this issue.

The GPU in my aging Dell XPS 13 laptop is Nvidia. I use the Noveau driver. It works well for this. :slight_smile:

Didn’t help), 5.19 behaves the same as 5.15, NVidia 390 driver, m820 graphics card

Well that is a major bummer. :frowning:
