No plasma interface with kernel 6.9 + Nvidia gpu + Wayland

If you encouter a black screen with no inteface after login in, it’s probably a problem with simpledrm loading.

To solve it add nvidia_drm.fbdev=1 to /etc/default/grub
in the line begining with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" .
Verify that you also have nvidia_drm.modeset=1 in the same line.
Then exec sudo update-grub

Also, verify that you have nvidia_drm in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf in the MODULES= or HOOKS= line.
Exemple :

MODULES=(nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm)

If it was not present, then run sudo mkinitcpio -P after adding it.

Also I would, before the update:

  • make a Timeshift snapshot if you ain’t got no recent one.
  • ( export content of widgets like your radio stations in Advanced Radio Player or your Podcasts in Kasts or any podcatcher as a backup )
  • make a fresh boot, but before that even:
  • System Settings > Appearance > Global Theme > set to Breath and tick both options for defaults
  • You might go to the hamburger menu in System Settings and look what changes you made away from default by selecting: Highlight Changed Settings and see if you want to make the effort to get back more defaults
  • System Settings > Workspace > Startup and Shutdown: SDDM defaults and Desktop Session: Start with empty session
  • disable all user-installed widgets that are still on your desktop, panels and even lock screen or wallpaper (e.g. Active Blur)
  • Export your custom shortcuts or mouse gestures in SS> Workspace > Shortcuts
  • Reboot, Timeshift snapshot, reboot
  • then do not log in, do the update via tty (CTRL+ALT+F3, same with F2 gets you back)
  • reboot, login, check through System Settings
  • reboot again
  • enjoy 8)


  • look for Plasma 6 replacements for your widgets after the install
  • in case you have Github-installed theming: uninstall the KDE5-version of klassy, install the Plasma 6 version of klassy, maybe reinstall lightly

How to fix `plasma-firewall` error in System Settings GUI when running `ufw`

Open /usr/lib/kde_ufw_plugin_helper.py and change the first line from #!/usr/bin/python3.11 to #!/usr/bin/python3.12. This fixed the issue for me immediately and makes sense since Manjaro is currently on Python 3.12.

DKMS fails for v4l2loopback on 6.8 kernel

DKMS fails for v4l2loopback on 6.8 kernel (#2) · Issues · Arch Linux / Packaging / Packages / v4l2loopback · GitLab

issues with auto-mount of ntfs filesystem using Kernel 6.8

The kernel changed default ntfs driver from FUSE one to ntfs3.
These two are not fully compatible, mainly as far as mount options go. If you have custom mount options in the fstab (or any other application, such as VeraCrypt) they need to be changed.

Mount fails with: Device or resource busy
DMesg reports: Can't open blockdev

Migrate your mount options. For me the changes were:

  • allow_otherumask=000
  • default_permissions → [drop]
  • user_id=1000uid=1000
  • group_id=1000gid=1000

plymouth update may cause black screens

With a newer version of plymouth than 22.02.122 you may experience an unbootable system with a black screen. This might be due to not having early KMS enabled. If you have an Nvidia GPU you could set nvidia_drm.modeset=1 nvidia_drm.fbdev=1 to the kernel parameters in your bootloader config to avoid the need of KMS. However, with Wayland around the corner, KMS will be needed.

To “fix” the current problem, we have downgraded plymouth once again to have more time to find a proper solution to migrate most of your installations to a working state with newer plymouth versions.

sudo pacman -Syuu

Those who don’t have issues can enjoy the newer version of plymouth.

Initramfs image can be bigger on 6.7 kernel due to Nvidia GSP Boot firmware

We all known that kernel 6.7 is very feature rich. One of the features is the inclusion of Nvidia’s GSP Boot firmware into Initramfs. However this will increase your image by 150 MB and the fallback image might be 240 MB in size. A way would be to remove kms from mkinitcpio.conf and redo your initramfs images. A discussion regarding that can be found at Arch Gitlab: kms hook increases the initramfs size heavily starting with 6.7 kernel (#238) · Issues · Arch Linux / Mkinitcpio / mkinitcpio · GitLab

To reduce size add fallback_options="-S autodetect -S kms" to /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux67.preset

Making dbus-broker our default D-Bus daemon

2024-01-09 - Jan Alexander Steffens

We are making dbus-broker our default implementation of D-Bus, for improved performance, reliability and integration with systemd.

For the foreseeable future we will still support the use of dbus-daemon, the previous implementation. Pacman will ask you whether to install dbus-broker-units or dbus-daemon-units. We recommend picking the default.

For a more detailed rationale, please see our RFC 25.

Arch Linux - News: Making dbus-broker our default D-Bus daemon

In some cases, however it is better to keep the legacy way. Here are some examples: Dbus-broker warnings


grub update

grub 2.12 may need manual post install by the user

With GRUB 2.12 out it is recommended to also install grub to your master boot record or EFI partition. On Manjaro grub gets only installed when you install it to your harddrive the first time. Only advanced users also keep their MBR/EFI in-sync as every package update of grub doesn’t update the installation on your MBR/EFI.

Depending on your system hardware and setup this may could cause an unbootable system on rare cases due to incompatibilities between the installed bootloader and configurations. After a grub package update it is advised to run both, installation and regeneration of configuration:

grub-install [plus the needed options depending of been EFI or BIOS]
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

For more specific information on grub-install, please refer to this guideline: [root tip] [How To] Primer on handling a grub package update

Broken Wifi with 6.1.66 and 6.6.5 kernels

Some users report broken Wifi driver support with the latest 6.x kernel series, mostly based on Realtek drivers, either from the AUR or provided by the kernels itself. It is also reported that linux515 and linux67 kernel series don’t have those issues. So if you have a potential Wifi driver problem, consider to install those kernels before updating your system. Older kernels can be found here:

Possible issues reported upstream

The Author of the original patch Johannes Berg had reviewed Léo Lam’s patch by now. So everybody who had tested 6.6.5-3 or 6.1.66-2 should reply to the upstream mailing list with a Tested-by tag as described here: [Stable Update] 2023-12-10 - Kernels, Plasma, Phosh, Systemd, Cinnamon, Gnome, libpamac - #95 by philm


  • IMPORTANT → Linux 6.5 is EOL

    Linux 6.5 is EOL and will be removed from the repo.

Changes in JDK / JRE 21 packages may require manual intervention

2023-11-02 - Frederik Schwan

We are introducing a change in JDK/JRE packages of our distro. This is triggered from the way a JRE is build in modern versions of Java (>9). We are introducing this change in Java 21.

To sum it up instead of having JDK and JRE packages coexist in the same system we will be making them conflict. The JDK variant package includes the runtime environment to execute Java applications so if one needs compilation and runtime of Java they need only the JDK package in the future. If, on the other hand, they need just runtime of Java then JRE (or jre-headless) will work.

This will (potentially) require a manual user action during upgrade:

  • If you have both JDK and JRE installed you can manually install the JDK with pacman -Sy jdk-openjdk && pacman -Su and this removes the JRE related packages.
  • If you have both JRE and JRE-headless you will need to choose one of them and install it manually since they would conflict each other now.
  • If you only have one of the JDK/JRE/JRE-headless pacman should resolve dependencies normally and no action is needed.

At the moment this is only valid for the upcoming JDK 21 release.

Unfortunately, both previous (13-05) and this updates block me from logging in Gnome desktop. After entering the password there’s a tiny rotating icon on the right which then disappears.

When used in a Gnome desktop, okular still crashes when hovering over the three “buttons” on the right of the window top bar, as explained in [Stable Update] 2024-05-13 - Kernels, Plasma 6, Gnome 46, LxQT 2.0, Nvidia, Pacman - #599 by Rmano (I hoped that the qt6-base update could fix it, but no).


  1. install okular from flatpack
  2. create a file ~/bin/okular with content
    #! /bin/bash
    exec flatpak run org.kde.okular "$@"

Now, it “works”, although it has a completely different look from the rest of the system (better than nothing).

I will try to keep this updated if a new update (!) fixes the issue. If I find instruction on how to do it, I could even try to report the problem to the KDE bugzilla…

Since the May 13 update (thread is closed there) the auto-type option in KeePassXC doesn’t work anymore (Gnome). I have to manually copy and paste user names and passwords. Anyone else with this problem?

May be you have switched to Wayland? KeePassXC auto-type is not supported by default.



I could not reproduce … but then I realize you are using the flatpak okular?

I interpret his answer as:

  • This problem is in the native okular
  • for some or other reason, this problem is not in the flatpak okolar… (and why @rmano installed the flatpak as a workaround until the native one starts working again…


Yes, @Fabby is correct. It happens to me for the (repository) okular, and also if I compile the AUR git package. It does not happen with the flatpak one, so I am using it now.

Could be a problem with the theme? I am using the Adwaita icons, and when starting the flatpack okular, I have a warning Requested decoration "adwaita" not found, falling back to default

Puzzling, really. So @cscs , for you okular is running ok (no crashes) with Gnome 46 and wayland?

Yes, there is no problem with KDE, I am sure. This thing started happening when I upgraded last week; I suppose it’s something related to the switch to gnome 46 and the last gtk4 release.

So to check if it’s reproducible, it should be done with a Gnome desktop…

If its believed to be a desktop specific bug then include that when reporting.
In your initial post the only DE you mention is KDE.

I included gnome specific remarks after you mentioned gnome.
