This is a wiki post; please edit as necessary.

Nautilus - Middle click on any location in other-locations:/// closes tab

Noto Sans Mono has incorrect spacing or has vanished (under KDE)

This has been reported upstream but hasn’t yet been fixed. For the meantime please install noto-fonts-compat: sudo pacman -S noto-fonts-compat


@philm What is the difference between the noto-fonts-compat package and just rolling back the noto-fonts package to the previous release? I just rolled it back and it is working fine. Should I instead be using the compat package?


All looks good: gnome+linux415+nvidia+zfs

And the issue with gnome-control-center freezing on first start seems to be solved

and gnome-control-center freezing when selecting user section seems to be solved as well.


I’m still wondering why in my case this is still the same when mounting EXT4 partition from Dolphin:

Not that is an issue, but just inconvenient :slight_smile:


I saw this on install, I clipped it but there were several “CDmain failed to emit”. Otherwise, a good install.

EDIT: have to eat my own words for 4.17.0-1-MANJARO at least! This now will suspend and wake up properly <3

How much time can you work on battery?
Would you mind sharing your tlp and general battery configs?
I just got a T450 on ebay.


We’re a rolling release, we shoulnd care about changes in newer version and users with problems of that. Because of that we should never hold back a new version of something. So compat packages are a good workaround in situations like this.


Probably a dumb question, but how would you compare Stable to Testing? Is Testing much more unstable than Stable, or is it worth switching to for faster package upgrades?


unstable: hickups and issues will occur.
testing: hickups and issues may occur.
stable: hickups and issues should not occur.

On testing and especially on unstable, you should know how to fix a system that does not boot any more without reinstalling it. If you are not familiar with that, you should stay on stable, where such issues should not occur.


The update nvidia 396.18 not working in GeForce Gt730.
The xorg.log lines:
[ 303.841] (WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 GPU installed in this system is

The nvidia.com the Gt730 is supported from 396.18
Installed 340.106 problem solved.

The 396.18 driver why not working?



Adieu, Fermi!

Nvidia also breaks the support for graphics cards that use a GPU with Fermi architecture.
Support Plan for Fermi series GeForce GPUs

List of Fermi series GeForce GPUs


Indeed, the last nvidia update also breaks my system (GeForce GT 630) :disappointed_relieved:.
Is there any plan to create a legacy package in order to support older GPUs?


A comment rather than an issue, but the new xfce whisker menu appearance diverges from the right click desktop menu, mainly in colour but sometimes also in icons. I like the whisker menu looks better. :smile:

Sure there will be some ‘issues’ in stable. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


On my main computer

A. New issues

Nothing new to report so far.

Once again, Pamac 6.2.7-1 detected and showed updates flawlessly.

Manjaro Cinnamon
Kernel 4.14 (using kernel-alive)
Did the update with Pamac

Intel i5-6400
Nvidia Geforce GTX 970

I’m curious about how you got version 396.18 of Nvidia driver since the most recent version available in official repos right now in Testing Branch is 390.48.

However, the fact that they are dropping support for Fermi in April 2018 is a really bad news for Manjaro users that uses the current version of Nvidia drivers with their old GPU. Is there a way for Manjaro to make the switch to a legacy driver automatic, or are users condemned to make the switch themselves manually?

Well, according to the infos from xorg.log Pch received :

We can presume that Nvidia plans to keep 390.xx as a legacy driver for older GPUs when the next major version of Nvidia driver will be officially released. According to Nvidia website, at the moment, 396.18 is a beta.

I’m pretty sure that if Nvidia really keeps version 390.xx as a legacy driver, it will be available in Manjaro repos, like 340.xx and 304.xx. But only Manjaro team can officially answer this question.

Well, Testing and Unstable are development branches to test out upcoming updates before they hit Stable branch. At best, issues encountered in Testing (and Unstable) get fixed and never appear in Stable Branch; at worst, Manjaro Team knows what issues users might have for next Stable release.

You will receive new versions of packages earlier than in Stable, and you will have updates more frequently, but there are definitely a higher risk of regression.

Here are some examples of what I personally got in Testing recently:
-Shaky menu with Adapta theme
-Strange glitch in Grub
-The file conflict with distribution.ini (Firefox)
-Updates didn’t show in Pamac

I will neither encourage nor discourage you from switching from Stable to Testing. It’s up to you to decide.


It is currently in our unstable branch.


I have a couple of strange issues with Gnome Control Center.

  • In Users section I get duplicate entries of users, two users twice each (clones). (Edit: When I re-entered the users section, the cloning was gone, so it was at the first run. After a new session I will check if it still happens.)
  • In About tab there is a link for Check for updates. It opens an nice update dialog in which presents the available Manjaro updates (normal so far). In the details of each package there is a link for details that directs to Archlinux packages site. The links are constructed, I guess, with a fixed prepending of Arch-packages site, even for Manjaro packages, which of course leads to an Unknown page.

About nVidia I have no issues from this UP, although I have my X GUIs extra lightened. For this my temp workaround is to use Redshift in Xfce4 session, though in Gnome I haven’t tried it yet, since it wasn’t needed till now.
