(I have accidentally deleted this very message, so reposting) Could someone please report if the audio issue is fixed in 5.15 LTS kernel?


for me it’s not,
i went back to 6.0

Linux trickeries no doubt…

Merry Christmas :santa::christmas_tree:
Switched to 6.1 Kernel
And keep as fallback 5.15
I know we shouldn’t post working things but no issues so far with 6.1 :vulcan_salute:


How do I fix this error?

[manjaro@manjaro tmp]$ sudo pacman -Syu

thanks, removing lib32-db was the solution


Switching open tabs in Kate has become terribly slow.
edit: fixed after another reboot.

Blessed Christmas everyone. :christmas_tree:

Just minor insignificant little issue during upgrade.

If you already have "The North" wallpaper (I manually added it before) you have to remove it … or upgrade won’t move through that part.

sudo rm --recursive --dir /usr/share/wallpapers/North/

How come manjaro-mirrors replace pacman-mirrors but the pacman mirrorlist generator application is still using pacman-mirrors command ?

# manjaro-mirrors --help
zsh: command not found: manjaro-mirrors
pacman-mirrors --help                                                                             127 ✘

It’s like you installed neofetch package but the command to actually run neofetch is clearfetch. :joy:
I think it would be better to re write the program manjaro-mirrors which uses manjaro-mirror as it’s command rather than something else. It would also be better to update the Manjaro website as well.
Just saying :slight_smile:

  1. Please read more carefuly: your quoted output states pacman-mirrors replacing manjaro-mirrors.
  2. Binaries provided via a package do not need to have the same name.
  3. That renaming already was covered enough in this forum, please search (more) before posting.

Merry X-mas everyone :christmas_tree:

What was that one command again which shows which package requires non-installed dependency XYZ?

An unknown package want to install an non-existant package called “clap-host”, but because it isn’t available, the alternatives are complete music studio software DAWs qtracktor and reaper. I do not want that.

sudo pactree -r clap-host
sudo pacman -Qi clap-host
sudo pacman -Si clap-host

All tell “package ‘clap-host’ not found”.

And I do not have any of the required packages at AUR (en) - clap-host installed.

Nevermind, I figured out myself by digging through the requirements of Arch Linux - qtractor 0.9.29-3 (x86_64)

Turns out Arch Linux - easyeffects 7.0.0-2 (x86_64) is the culprit.

Apparently it optionally required the complete Arch Linux - zam-plugins 4.1-2 (x86_64) in the past. That package got split up, and easyeffects only optionally requires zam-plugins-lv2 now. upgpkg: easyeffects 7.0.0-2: Optdepend on split package for maximizer · archlinux/svntogit-community@763a397 · GitHub

However, since zam-plugins was already installed, pamac does not figure out that zam-plugins need to be removed, and only zam-plugins-lv2 needs to be installed.

pacman -Rns zam-plugins
pacman -S zam-plugins-lv2
pacman -D --asdeps zam-plugins-lv2

BTW there is a pacnew again for /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme which belongs to extra/libxcursor

With the following diff:

< [Icon Theme]
< Inherits=Adwaita
> [icon theme]
> Inherits=xcursor-breeze

The file was created (also with a pacnew, thus it didn’t exist beforehand) during one of the other upgrades in December.
However, the file seems to be completely removed again in the new version: 1.2.1-3: use default-cursors · archlinux/svntogit-packages@baf6851 · GitHub
(The package extra/libxcursor is not in Manjaro’s package repositories: Packages · GitLab).

What is going on? Just upstream noobing around?

Here on my end it seems all is fine. But I couldn’t find a way to make it work with AMD cpu/gpu without downgrading MESA to 22.2. Tried following other topics, installed mesa-git but then had to install many other packages and even then couldn’t make it work properly. So, for now, I can only stay with this version of MESA.

I can only assume zam-plugins and the various dependencies are for some sort of specialised audio processing, as I’ve removed them all and can still play all the audio I need without them.


I’m having issues with Firefox and VLC. If I lock the screen Firefox tends to crash and VLC doesn’t always resuming play the video I was playing.

4 posts were split to a new topic: Manjaro-cinnamon-settings and manjaro-gnome-settings are in conflict

A post was merged into an existing topic: Manjaro-cinnamon-settings and manjaro-gnome-settings are in conflict

After the command sudo pamac update, I get the following output:

Checking inter-conflicts...
Error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
Error: Failed to prepare transaction:
conflicting dependencies:
pipewire-jack and jack2 are in conflict

Because I’m using pipewire with no issues (yet) I tried to remove jack2.
That gives the following output:

Error: target not found: jack2

What can I do?
