No, because I have not changed anything to the theme or to any widgets, and I’m still running with the same configuration now.

The solution was to clear out ~/.cache, which suggests that Plasma 5.27.8 corrupts its own cache from time to time. Well, either Plasma itself or the KDE Frameworks currently in use.

syslinux is a Linux boot loader for use on floppy disks and other removable media with a FAT-based filesystem. :arrow_down:


So not needed for a system that just boots from “proper” filesystems? I wonder why it’s installed by default.

I’m guessing it would have been installed as a dependency, possibly of something you no longer have installed.

After updating, curl and uzerbug stoped working.
I thought something was off, but I rebooted and everything worked back.
Now gallery-dl doesn’t work, and I got this error
Failed to extract Cryptodome/Cipher/_ARC4.abi3.so: decompression resulted in return code -1!
I’ve been using the same binaries of gallery-dl so the the updated caused the issue reverting back solved it.
Still not sure what package caused it, even latest gallery-dl binaries with all dependencies packaged in gave the same issue.

Hmm strange, how old is your Manjaro KDE install? Mine is 3,1 years old btw

I use Max Performance since a few month now, but its a really bad work around because my GPU Output draw on idle is 50 Watt now instead 10 Watt.

I don’t have to reapply max performance after restart btw.

Mine’s about 4.5 years. I installed this system late April 2019. But I’ve cleaned out ~/.cache many times already over the years. It is after all only cache, and therefore, there is nothing in there that cannot be recreated again.

I even still have the original installer image — Manjaro 18.0.4 Illyria — on a DVD, for archeological purposes. :stuck_out_tongue:


a little bit confused how could this happen, but it seems like after this update my systemd-journal was kind of nuked and empty and wasn’t “persistent” anymore. Then again, I never set it to persistent, but it was “auto” since beginning of installation 4 years ago, but it was auto(matically) persistent until this update? and now it’s not anymore? ( /etc/systemd/journald.conf is still older than this update and with date 17.Jun.2022 – and with the original #Storage=auto line there. )

edit: Mystery solved. Apparently KDE/Qt is so badly programmed, that by default it just spams --user log full of utter BS, so the entire 4GB systemd/journal got filled with it in 2 days, leaving the impression that the previously existed half year logs were just reset at some point, instead they were wiped out because of journal size limit because of the KDE spamminess :man_facepalming:
Fix was to add: QT_LOGGING_RULES="*.debug=false;*.info=false;*.warning=false" into /etc/environment. Additionally to reduce new spämminess introduced to journal by Wayland (compared to X11), adding WINEDEBUG=-all to the same file helped to reduce a massive amount also.

So the incident didn’t have to do anything with this update, but with me swapping XFCE/X11 to KDE/Wayland just hours before this update landing.

I once did that, or maybe it was ./config
Probably the latter and it messed my Plasma setup i. e. everything went B&W.
T’was on an older install where I played around with Kvantum. Not using it since.
Timeshift saved me.

Getting off topic…
But maybe don’t confuse .cache with .config :wave:

Thank you for another seamless update!

Just for Portmaster users: Better reinstall package portmaster-stub after every major update release.
It was CPU-intensive here for a few seconds continuously, now after the reinstall it’s very quite. Should have done this earlier.
Edit ^ I will post about that soon, seems it was not the reinstall that helped…
You need to re-set your filters resp. re-do your configuration, unfortunately.
Unsure why it’s not saved somewhere in ~.

LOL I’m going to use that “for archeological purposes” whenever anyone asks why I’m hanging on to something past it’s prime.


Just don’t refer to your mother-in-law by that description. There are countless reports of how that would be… rather unhealthy. :rofl:

After the update the hibernate option does not work properly. After the PC goes into hibernation and I turn it back on, Manjaro restarts to the login screen. I see a journal message appear before the login screen comes on, but no idea what is causing the issue or how to resolve it.

Edit: Apparently resolved the issue by using this thread: Not restoring after hibernating - #7 by mbb

Seems that the hooks for resume were not set/missing after the update.
Reseme hook was missing from /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Since this update, I see no thumbnails any more on the XFCE desktop. Loading the desktop background after login also takes longer than usual. Does anyone know how to debug this? xfdesktop does not seem to use any log files.

Hi everyone,

I am having the glibc-locales issue. However, for some reason, the suggested manual fix to run

 sudo pacman -Syu glibc-locales --overwrite /usr/lib/locale/\*/\*

Doesn’t seem to work for me. When I run the command, I end up with the same error as when I try to update.
