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

So far 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

The 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.

Known issues:

  • 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).

Issues reported:

Workaround (UNTESTED - at your own risk!):
Install the AUR Package libx11-firefox-fix

Kernel 6.0: AMDGPU - Screen freezes when waking from hibernation or suspend

Screen doesn't turn on when waking from suspend: Failed to pin framebuffer with error -19 (#2213) · Issues · drm / amd · GitLab

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:

  • Open nvidia-settings
  • 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.


I am not seeing the update as being available. Add/remove software says I am up to date, as does sudo pamac upgrade and sudo pacman -Syu. pacman-mirrors -G confirms I am on stable. I have rebooted and there is no change.


I can confirm that information.


Update: They are now received.

Thanks for fixing the pacman-mirrors


A post was split to a new topic: Google Chrome stable crashes immediately after starting

All went fine, except for the slower boot time issue:

Boot time has increased after 2022-12-20 Stable update (due to userspace)

Just finished the update before this one, but the topic is closed, so reporting it here:
Update changed my default shell from bash to zsh. So again changing it back. Please remove dependencies of ZSH, make it really adjustable in the settings or something similar, make it adjustable during install. The move to ZSH was highly debatable, but giving no easy way of keeping the old trusted bash is… unnecessary.


and what was the issue you are talking about?


I was awake while the issue was ongoing and saw various versions of the mirror package become recommended by pamac-manager and all this on the Friday before the holiday. So, I was reassured when, a day later, the stable patch notes mentioned the issue. Remember that Log4Shell and SolarWinds came out during the holidays.

Hi, all went well…as usual (silly me) I skipped an update…I really should have to stop doing that…
Anyway…firefox did’nt start up. I tried the console (as I usually do in these moments) and got nothing…
After a reboot, I fired up Top and nodiced mandb was running, possibly to set itself up for work.
After mandb was done, Firefox came alive…
Maybe a glitch? Maybe my impatience?

Strange: branche stable in pacman-mirrors.conf is commented out ( with one(!!) # ) at least since September 2019. So i keep it commented out?

I can’t remember probs with branches so i keep it commented out!

Quote from a backup ( November 2022 )

## Branch Pacman should use (stable, testing, unstable)
# Branch = stable

## Generation method
## 1) rank   - rank mirrors depending on their access time
## 2) random - randomly generate the output mirrorlist
# Method = rank

Info ( after update 24.12.22 )

Just a minor issue. During the update I was asked to choose a provider for clap-host and given the choice between qtractor and reaper. No idea what clap-host is or which I should have gone for, so I just took the default (qtractor) and hoped for the best.

I found a strange “solution” install kernel60 and now kernel515 PLUS kernel60 have sound. I don’t know why but it is working!

Why only four days since the previous Stable Update?


Can’t upgrade using

sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && pamac update --no-aur

could not satisfy dependencies:
- removing lib32-libelf breaks dependency 'lib32-libelf' required by lib32-gstreamer

edit: solution

sudo pacman-mirrors --geoip && sudo pacman -Syu

This is a surprise gift for Christmas bro :slight_smile: :gift: :christmas_tree:
