good update here: linux146+nvidia+zfs+gnome


On my Arch machine the update of librsvg to 2.42.4 breaks cairo-dock. Bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/cairo-dock-core/+bug/1770884 Also reported the bug upstream a few days ago, but no reply yet… Reported at Arch as well: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/58803


The systemd-kcm just became an AUR package ?!?!


All good on KDE. Only one strange thing - but I am really not sure it is related to the update - I discovered I have an orphan package called systemd-kcm, which wanted to be updated… but from the AUR. As I don’t remember having installed it, I have deleted it. The visible change I see is that I don’t have the module “systemd” anymore in the System Settings gui, but I can live with it.
Just curious to understand if this package was until this update in anyway part of an official repository or…if I have just installed it from the AUR and don t remember it. (Could be when you are a “young 60+” :innocent: )
Edit: Well… just see now the previous comment from @bogdancovaciu … so I believe I have the answer.


On xfce as well as on KDE plasma i also got the mentioned warnings as mentioned by ben81. Also the systemd-kcm thing on KDE. So i uninstalled sytemd-kcm and installed systemdgenie which is a seperate application.


It seems it fails to build (even tho it was in official repos previously) because of Qt 5.11 dropping qt5_use_modules
Same was with Phonon last month.


So was systemd-kcm dropped by Arch to AUR?

Is it still required?

Hasn’t been rebuilt since Dec 2015, I’m guessing it wouldn’t build against Qt 5.11 so it was dropped.

Name            : systemd-kcm
Version         : 1.2.1-2
Description     : Systemd control module for KDE
Architecture    : x86_64
Build Date      : Tue 08 Dec 2015 22:32:59 AEDT


can help this doku Porting guide from Qt 1.0 to 5.11


Besides this pacman 5.1.0 related bug breaking MSM language tool manager, all is ok.


Update went without any issues, but I still encountering this: [Testing Update] 2018-05-30 - Deepin, Kernels, Pacman 5.1, Pamac, Firefox, QT 5.11
Octopi acts weird.


Maybe Octopi is not 100% compatible with Pacman 5.1.0?!


Please do a git-bisect on librsvg. Only 153 commits (some are doubled listed due to merges) were done. You can check how I did it for linux41 and do it similar with that package. In the past we had similar issues


I’ve just pulled another set of upstream updates. Also we found some time to fix reported issues.


There is a very nice package developed by a girl called ‘aurman’ and it iscompatible with Pacman5.1 Aurman requires it, actually…


This “girl” ?


Deepin-Terminal work now with right mouse klick and paste / menu - settings etc… Thx.

Info. Only warning, ups like @ben81 https://forum.manjaro.org/t/testing-update-2018-05-31-kernels-pacman-deepin/48555/3?u=sgs
