[Testing Update] 2018-05-12 - Muffin, Virtualbox, Firefox Development, Deepin



Hi community,

welcome to another testing update of Manjaro. This time our most effort went into updating our toolchain with GCC v8.1.0. This needed updates or recompiling of all our kernels.

Other than that, we had the following updates:

  • Virtualbox is now at v5.2.12
  • Small fixes to Cinnamon got added as well
  • Last, we updated Firefox with the latest development changes

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found here.

So please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories. Users of our 32-bit Distro should read this.

Update came from future ::smiley: update for 13 came on 12 th :smiley:








So, you back to Arch version of bumblebee?? :>


Small update here, just babl, postgresql-libs, networkmanager, libnm, and libnm-glib.


NO, as I’ve to see what the difference is on our end. Still had no time to do it.


This is DIFF:
a - Bumblebee from arch AFTER merging patches from Abuzer Rafey (not used in bumblebee develop branch now)
b - Bumble fork from me with kmod patchset (and other fixes from develop branch directly). KMOD is valid official way in develop branch. Not Abuzer Rafey patches. Thats WHY we need fork.


Only updates here: NetworkManager. Firefox? Using nightly AUR packages. So far, so good :slight_smile:


34 updates, all went smoothly, thanks Manjaro team.


Since the last update my Latte Dock freezes all the time. Before I had never issues with it. And I am not able to start Virtualbox. If I try to start it from Latte Dock (before if freezes of course), just nothing happens, same if I try to open it from the menu. If I start VB from CLI, I get an segmentation fault.

Had no time yet to investigate on both issues. Will do that most probably tomorrow.


On my main computer

A. New issues

Nothing new to report so far.

B. Still present

Strange behaviour with VLC (package : vlc 3.0.1-2) I noticed yesterday on Cinnamon, where the panel shows up when I hover the timeline with my mouse while watching a video in fullscreen mode. I got a new muffin package (version 3.8.1-1.1), but unfortunately, it didn’t improve the situation.

VLC on Cinnamon Testing

However, someone pointed out a similar behaviour on XFCE than the one I currently see on Cinnamon, where the panel also shows up when hovering the timeline with the mouse, which is something I do confirm on XFCE Stable. (Package : vlc 3.0.1-2 on Stable too.)

VLC on XFCE Stable

I also check how VLC behave on MATE, KDE and Budgie.

On MATE, when I hover the timeline with the mouse, the panel doesn’t show up over the video while in fullscreen mode, but the little bubble that says the time the cursor is pointing to never appears at all. This is not as inconvenient as having the panel over the video, but it’s still not perfect. This behaviour is similar to what I had on Cinnamon before updating muffin package from 3.8.0-1 to 3.8.1-1 yesterday.

VLC on MATE Stable

On KDE and Budgie, it’s perfect: the panel doesn’t shows up over the video when I hover the timeline AND the little bubble indicating the time pointed by the cursor shows up.

VLC on KDE Stable

VLC on Budgie Stable

Therefore, it seems that the timeline in VLC is programmed in a way that makes VLC works improperly in some graphical environments, with different unwanted behaviour depending on which graphical environment VLC is used on. Although it isn’t an extremely major problem (it doesn’t make VLC crash or something), it’s just annoying.

Sounds promising. I can’t test nightly myself but I was wondering if you’ve ever experienced any video flickering on timeline hover using other themes besides Adapta? Any instances where the mouse cursor would randomly disappear over the video output (default window mode)? Can you test these 2 items on nightly?


I don’t really use other themes so I couldn’t say. But I’m pretty sure the mouse cursor is supposed to disappear during video playback.


Yep sorry I failed to mention the normal way the mouse cursor is supposed to disappear after several seconds of inactivity on video hover…I was referring to abnormal instances where the cursor totally disappears the instant the active cursor hits any part of the video window and then reappears once the cursor actually exits the window – I’ve experienced this a couple times on the native skins (on all themes I think) after opening several videos in 1 vlc instance setting…sometimes the issue is replaced after the 5th open or 3rd open…it’s random abnormal behavior. (Could be a firejail issue as well idk.) Ironically, the custom skin I’m using doesn’t actually support the normal disappearance of the mouse cursor so I either shove it in the corner or onto the 2nd monitor.:slightly_smiling_face:


I don’t remember seeing anything like that in vlc-nightly. But I call vlc to open a video and then close it when I’m done. Maybe your mouse just needs a good spanking? :smile_cat:
