KDE issue here - anyone getting xdg-desktop-portal-kde dumping its core when kde loads up? I seem to see a couple of mentions on the arch linux forums from half a month ago (which kind of makes sense) but no solution that I can find. Reinstalling it doesn’t fix it. Anyone have any ideas?

indeed the issue is with new libebml, or rather these dependencies of it (vlc, mkvtool*) not being rebuilt and available in stable branch for now. for the time being you can downgrade libebml.


I am seeing that too, but is it actually causing a specific problem for you?

If I check
systemctl --user status plasma-xdg-desktop-portal-kde
I see “Desktop portal registered successfully” about 12 seconds after the core dump, and status is “active (running)”. I haven’t experienced any problems, but I’m not sure that I’m using anything which relies on xdg-desktop-portal-kde.


No, it’s not causing any problems, as far as I can tell. Yeah the service is running. I guess it doesn’t matter if it’s not causing a problem

I did suffer the ceph-lib forever make loop, but many thanks to folks on this forum for making the solution so easy to find - and implement (i.e., uninstalling the ceph-lib legacy code). :+1:

Hi @manyaro01,
I’ve the same matter and it give Me an error message when trying to delete incomplete snapshots:

E: Failed to remove directory

Do You have the same bug?

I hope You take care of You :wink:

strangely, rebooting after applying the update loaded up my BIOS… exited out, got my typical grub boot options, and all seems fine

I also noted the plasma-xdg-desktop-portal-kde crash in the journal, but as the system loaded to desktop fine it was probably an early failure that was recovered from as @Takakage pointed out…

open a terminal and:
sudo timeshift --check
I should fix it

Add/Remove Software didn’t show the stable updates on one of my systems, I was able to update some files using “sudo pacman -Syyu”, but some files didn’t update, like my system still says it’s on Gnome 42.4. I refreshed the databases and the mirrors, made sure there weren’t any .part files under /var/lib/pacman/sync; anything else I should try/check? Thanks!

That’s because gnome-desktop was not updated. There were only minor 42.5 updates for some packages. See https://ftp-osl.osuosl.org/pub/gnome/core/42/42.5/NEWS

My updates went fine, but pamac on my GNOME notebook keeps showing its tray icon even though it shouldn’t when fully up to date. My XFCE box is behaving correctly in this regard. It’s really the smallest of annoyances, but is there a way to fix this?

After the update I had no sound from speakers/headphones. The system is 9th gen Intel laptop with Realtek ALC1220 sound card. Also the detection of plugging in the headphones didn’t work.
Fixed by adding a file /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf with contents:

options snd_hda_intel probe_mask=1

Probably the issue appeared with 2022-09-12 update or earlier, but I didn’t notice it because I used the headphone output of the monitor.

Three things went wrong for me on Gnome with Wayland:

  1. Wayland was no longer enabled and my system switched back to X11. Managed to fix that by going through the thread about enabling Wayland on Gnome + Nvidia again.
  2. Fractional scaling was disabled for some reason, after the above. I fixed that by enabling fractional scaling again through gsettings.
  3. I can no longer select my primary monitor. The dropdown still works but setting it doesn’t seem to work and my selection does not persist when moving away from the monitor settings. I haven’t found a fix for this.

Aside from these three, I had two other issues which I was able to resolve with the troubleshooting in this thread (electron16 & python2). So thanks for that effort.

It did take my several reboots throughout the update and the fixes above to get everything going again.

I just got this too. Do other QT apps fail?

Try sudo dmesg | grep libQt6 and see if you any results (I do)…

Yes. Texstudio is failing on my side as well.

sudo dmesg | grep libQt6

Results in:

Same for me (even after the update 2022-10-10).

$ sudo dmesg | grep libQt6

The problem is still not listed in the “known issues” on top of that page. @philm , can you add it?
