pacman-mirrors was temporarily renamed to manjaro-mirrors (changed has been reverted)
This was done to avoid confusion with an AUR / WSL package with the same name and avoid possible breakage. It should be a seamless transition.

dbus-x11 demoted to AUR
dbus-x11 was installed out of the box on some flavors of Manjaro as of a year ago, but is no longer needed. If you have it installed, please replace it with
dbus using the following:
sudo pacman -Syu dbus
XFCE becomes unusable if libxfce4ui-nocsd is still installed
XFCE Classic project hasn’t updated yet to 4.18 series. We pushed 4.17.0 version of the package, but don’t know if that helps in that situation. It is recommended to install the regular libxfce4ui package to avoid issues and comment on this issue: libxfce4ui 4.18.0 released · Issue #15 · Xfce-Classic/libxfce4ui-nocsd · GitHub
python-cairo 1.23.0-2 update requires manual intervention
python-cairo package prior to version 1.23.0-2 was missing the compiled python module. This has been fixed in 1.23.0-2, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked pyc file that was created. If you receive this error
python-cairo: /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/cairo/__pycache__/__init__.cpython-310.pyc exists in filesystem
when updating, use
pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/cairo/__pycache__/\*
to perform the upgrade.
We recommend to install openssl-1.1
Due to the update to
openssl 3.0 some things still look for the older LTS version 1.1. You may install
openssl-1.1 and maybe
lib32-openssl-1.1 packages. However report such issues to us.
some SDDM themes might not work
dkms might not sign modules properly as header files may still depend on 1.1 version of openssl
Issues reported to Archlinux so far:
FS#76567 : [plasma-framework] 5.99.0 needs a rebuild against openssl 3.0
libx11 1.8.2 causes firefox to freeze
libx11 1.8.2 causes Firefox to freeze, mainly when highlighting text and copying things to the clipboard (e.g. password manager).
Workaround (UNTESTED - at your own risk!):
Install the AUR Package libx11-firefox-fix

Mesa 22.2.x renders Calamares black on Gnome Development ISOs
For some yet unknown reason
Calamares is rendered black on Gnome when Mesa 22.2.x is used. Current workaround is to install 22.1.x series and relogin to the live-session.
Kernel 6.1-rc# might break backlight control on old/weird laptops, please test
signature from "Manjaro Build Server <build_at_manjaro_dot_org>" is unknown trust
Seems our signing key for our Build Server had the 2022-10-28 as expire date set when generated. This is now fixed for chroot builds and fresh as also current existing installs via
manjaro-keyring 20221028-4 Simply update your system to get that package, which got pushed to all our branches.
NVIDIA 520.56.06 - 525.60.11 Color banding and animation issues
Current (not so good) Workaround:
Select the problematic monitor under the GPU Tab (e.g.
DP-0 - (LG ...))
Under Controls, change Depth to 6 bpc and set dither mode to temporal (or play with the Dithering Controls)
NVIDIA already replied to the Bug-Report,
so there is a good chance that this issue will be fixed with the next NVIDIA driver release.
Best distro ever & Best founder
Hi, when it will be available as
sudo pacman -Syyu says there is nothing to upgrade?
Edit: Ok mirror is not synced yet
Indeed, it can take minutes to several hours before the mirrors catch up with the updates, depending on the mirror.
As Philm wrote, problem importing keys with dbus, I followed his instructions and no more problem.
After package upgrade and after switched to 6.1 kernel, audio HDMI output stopped working using Dock.
Connection scheme is like this: Notebook <-(USB-C)-> Lenovo ThinkPad USB-C Dock <-(DP-HDMI)-> Dell S2721DGFA Monitor
Edit: Using direct connection trough HDMI, the sound is not working neither.
Before upgrade and on Kernel 6.0x it was working.

Shotwell / photo program does not start, in the terminal it reports:
shotwell: error while loading shared libraries: libraw.so.20: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
libraw is installed, pamac shows:
Would an alias or something else solve this, and if yes, what would that be??
edit: copied /usr/lib/libraw.so.23 to /usr/lib/libraw.so.20 and now shotwell runs, but that is only a workaround for now, I guess.
To all the strong souls still using KDE Plasma 5.24.7 LTS, I will see you on the other side.
How to continue?
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing db (6.2.32-1) breaks dependency ‘db=5.3.28’ required by lib32-db
I had the same error. I simply removed the
lib32-db package and then everything worked just fine.
The only thing I’ve really noticed so far is that the
Kate widget is now gone, for those of you who’ve added it to a panel or had it visible in the system tray. The icon can be put back, but it is no longer a widget now — it is now merely a launcher for Kate.
Everything else still appears to look fine in Plasma 5.24.7 LTS.
There was however a problem when using
pamac to try and update the AUR packages, while
yay had no problem doing so. See the following thread.
Syncing database through Refresh database in pamac results in a pop-up that states, “Failed to synchronize AUR database”.
In a terminal I ran yay -Syyu, and it synced fine and updated my AUR packages, but I still get the error message in pamac.
HDMI is not detecting external display after the update. Anyone facing similar issue?
Yes, sometimes it works (after reboot) but I was facing similar issues with HDMI output and the Dock. (Lenovo T14 G3 AMD). HDMI audio was broken completely. I reverted to 6.0 kernel and it’s working again.
So… I want to ask if those 6.1 is stable enough to use on host system. But I see it’s not, so I will stay on 5.15. Until 6.1 get some patches.
I think it’s time to make my grub visible again
After my update today, remmina was not working anymore.
** Message: 16:25:46.796: [X2GO] X2Go plugin loaded. it would simply coredump.
Turns out the problem is
I removed the library from the plugins-directory, and now everything is fine - seems I do not need the plugin.
For some reason, remmina forgot mv VNC password - I guess this was due to moving plugin libraries in and out of the plugin directory to see which one was responsible for the core dumps.
What is the correct way to proceed with this? File a bug report for remmina, or for manjaro?
I’ve got an issue on one machine with keyring. do you know a safe way to solve that ?
Thanks for your work

could someone please report if the audio issue was fixed in the Kernel 5.15.
I’m currently on 6.0 which was the solution,but want to revert back to the LTS one.
My Audio is acting wired
my audio was working great before update after update
My audio works fine I restart my device once I pause the audio (YouTube Video) Then My Audio is Stopped Completely Until I restart it again.
I had checked other related topics but didn’t find any solution.
