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
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On February 2nd, the base-devel package group has been replaced by a meta package of the same name.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
After downloading this update your computer may say that it is connected to a new wired network called “lo”. Don’t worry, this is totally normal. On KDE, it will go away in 5.27.1, I’m not sure about other desktop environments. You can also hide it from view if you like. See below for more information
Rather “right now” as 5.27 has not yet had it’s 1st point release (expected tomorrow) and is supposed to be the last plasma 5 release (and an LTS one at that) until plasma 6 (whenever that happens, end of 2023 or even next year).
So it’s fairly safe to assume: it surely will come to stable branch - it just didn’t today.
I also had the “lo” interface automatically connect in KDE.
Due to this the Wired Connection did not show as connected. I have some OpenVPN configs that autoconnect with the Wired Connection - these didn’t connect. After manually connecting the Wired Connection it was solved and the VPN fired up. Just for those that might notice the same thing until (or if) the backport for the fix is pushed out.
