Finding information easier about Manjaro
Finding information easier about Manjaro always has been a topic that needed to be solved. With our new search we have put all Manjaro data accessible in one place and divided by sections so it makes it easier to digest: New Manjaro search engine is available | Blog
For Pamac we integrated a community patch to not use polkit UI for passwords when using it in a cli. PAMAC_CLI_AUTH=1 needs to been specified. Detailed infos can be found in this reddit post. Let us know what you think …
LibreOffice7.5.0 is now the new fresh release. Still continues now with 7.4.5
Beside the usual upstream updates like Firefox Developer Edition, Python, Haskell and others we added our KDE Unstable packages as usual
Info about AUR packages
AUR (Arch User Repository) packages are neither supported by Arch nor Manjaro. Posts about them in Announcement topics are off-topic and will be flagged, moved or removed without warning.
We now have Gradience in the Manjaro community repo (also available as a Flatpak) for your theme customization pleasure. There are community presets (currently unavailable) available or you can create your own.

Switch to the base-devel meta package requires manual intervention
2023-02-12 - Robin Candau
On February 2nd, the base-devel package group has been replaced by a meta package of the same name.
If you installed the base-devel package group prior to this date, explicitly re-install it to get the new base-devel package installed on the system:
A solution, regarding to rob215x, is:
VLC would crash immediately when trying to play any video. I opened VLC directly, and changed Preferences > Video > Output from “Automatic” to “VDPAU” and it works now. I found that solution on another thread but I still don’t understand the problem and why VDPAU works.
PHP 8.2 update and introduction of legacy branch
2023-01-13 - Pierre Schmitz
The php packages have been updated to the latest version 8.2. In addition to this, a new set of php-legacy packages have been introduced. These will follow the oldest but still actively supported PHP branch. This enables users to install the latest version but also introduces the option to use third party applications that might rely on an older version. Both branches will be kept up to date following our rolling release model. php and php-legacy can be installed at the same time as the latter uses a -legacy suffix for its binaries and configuration files.
In addition to this, the php7 packages have been removed as they reached end of life. The imap extension will no longer be provided as it relies on the c-client library which has been abandoned for many years.
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
I’m experiencing a conflict while running this update: /usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so is present in both nvidia-390xx-utils and lib32-nvidia-390xx-utils packages, and /usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.390.157 is present in both nvidia-390xx-utils and lib32-nvidia-390xx-utils packages.
I can totally understand if there’s no solution for this issue, given that this is a fairly old driver on a fairly old hardware (this is the most up-to-date one for my 920m according to mhwd), but if anyone knows an easy fix without investing time investigating it, I would appreciate it.
Why don’t you try using the nvidia-470 driver together with optimus-manager? As a nivida lagacy user (GTX 770M) I think this is the best option in terms of performance/compatibility/vulkan extensions for our old laptops
I tried as usual to check if the list of updated hosts was correct, then I checked if I had any updates for the system, but it showed me that there are no new updates.
What could be the cause? So far I have not encountered this problem.

dbschema 9.0.2-1 AUR
The latest driver version that is compatible with my 920m is 430.40, but even that isn’t offered by mhwd. I remember some years ago once I managed to hack mhwd to allow me to install the 430, but I haven’t noticed any difference compared to 390, and I don’t think I could ever get vulkan support on this GPU. So ever since my last install I’m just going with what mhwd offers.
The compatibility in MHWD is taken directly from the provided Nvidia files. Manjaro only provides three version of Nvidia drivers to fit pretty much all cards (not the very old ones), which are 390, 470, and latest current driver.
