[Testing Update] 2018-06-21 - Kernels, KDE, QT 5.11.1, Breath Theme

#22

Really, because my systems (Plasma5) have no updates at all showing up.


#23

For me also no update. My last update was for 2018-06-20 and that went well. Update 2018-06-21 is not pulling anything.

I did a pacman-mirrors -g upfront.


#24

I had my laptop in repair (the screen had dead fields). So this update is the first in about a week. All went well.

EDIT: The update after the update went well too… :slight_smile:


#25

Whoopsy daisy. I just announced some but didn’t push anything yet to testing. Let me fix that :wink:


#26

Now that we got our “fix” - I moved back to no issues! Thx philm for delivering our dose of… coca… I mean packages :grin:


#27

Ah there it is :slight_smile:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu
gave me the new stuff now (only one local mirror was fully synced)
Then had this
:: Replace pulseaudio-gconf with extra/pulseaudio? [Y/n]
which of course Y - and all went lovely by.

Also kinda gross note -
krunner new feature ‘software center’ is added and enabled after update … which suggests apps to add. Easily undone … but ewwww.


#28

Silky smooth update!:+1: :smiley:


#29

switched my desktop to testing tonight as my SSD is now seemingly stable after a firmware update. no issues with the updates after switching branches whatsoever, looks good to go.


#30

Smooth update of my KDE VM, but noted these two ongoing issues:

  1. https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395477 remains unfixed.
  2. Each variant of Plasma 5.13.x so far, in my Testing KDE VM, suffers constant high cpu% due to kwin & Xorg:

    .
    EDIT: Oh, i remembered that i have another KDE VM [albeit this one is Stable branch], which is still on 5.12.5, & shows the lower cpu% typical before the 5.13 upgrade:

[Testing Update] 2018-06-22 - Systemd v239, Pacman-Mirrors, Adapta, Firefox, Rebuilds
#31

No change on the desktop menu issue for me. Xfce (gtk2) with kernel 4.17. Also tried 4.14LTS on the off chance there was a kernel element but made no difference.

Update went smoothly. :grinning:


#32

The desktop context menu works in the beta. Maybe because xfdesktop-gtk3 is installed.

thunar and thunar-gtk3 packages are now both at 1.8.1-1. Are they supposed to be at the same version number considering one is supposed to be the gtk2 and the other gtk3?


#33

Thanks, I had gathered that there was not a similar problem for the gtk3 beta - without having tried it myself.

If the transition to gtk3 is imminent then maybe the problem is not worth pursuing. But I am not sure how close that is… :wink:


#34

Imminent or not, I’ll probably run a Frankenstein machine with a mix of gtk2 and gtk3 packages (I don’t know how reasonable this is). There’s some good things in Xfce 4.13. Some not so good things also. But some good things.


#35

Later is as good as Now. We all forget from time to time, no worries. All good after update!!! :slight_smile:


#36

Was a difficult birth, but then worked out in the end.


#37

I highly doubt it will work from experience testing MATE throughout the transition to GTK+3. I believe the same will apply for XFCE but you can of course try if you want. I recommend you use one or other though not a frankenstein mix.


#38

Sadly I’m not running on KDE Plasma. I think Gnome on testing branch looks more better.


#39

With this update we have a “/etc/pulse/default.pa.pacnew”. I have to replace some lines related to “GSettings” in “/etc/pulse/default.pa” .


#40

I’ve installed xfce4-gtk3 and the goodies package.

  • Some incompatibilities with applets, specifically the network manager which I have disabled because it flickers in the panel.
    Screenshot%20from%202018-06-23%2014-11-54
  • Programs will not go to system tray which is bug or feature unknown.
  • There is some repeated gtk error spam in the xorg.log:
(wrapper-2.0:732): Gtk-WARNING **: 21:57:54.937: Theme parsing error: <data>:1:142: The style property GtkButton:inner-border is deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. It will be removed in a future version

(wrapper-2.0:734): Gtk-WARNING **: 21:57:54.961: Negative content width -3 (allocation 1, extents 2x2) while allocating gadget (node button, owner GtkToggleButton)

Otherwise xfce gtk3 is solid.


#41

Did I got it right that I should just copy those lines from pacnew to default.pa?:

### Load additional modules from GSettings. This can be configured with the paprefs tool.
### Please keep in mind that the modules configured by paprefs might conflict with manually
### loaded modules.
.ifexists module-gsettings.so
.nofail
load-module module-gsettings
.fail
.endif

and this lines should be but above those lines:

### Automatically restore the default sink/source when changed by the user
### during runtime
### NOTE: This should be loaded as early as possible so that subsequent modules
### that look up the default sink/source get the right value

I compared default.pa and default.pa.pacnew and… they are astonishingly different. Hard to even compare so I’m confused. Should I just use pacnew as default conf? I do have some sound issues (but they were because of the incompatible hardware) but maybe those new configs will set everything right (updates and new kernels fixed many sound issues)?
