So what do we have with this one?

  • pacman is now at 5.1.2

Known issues and solutions

Items from previous update sets

I can’t open Nemo with elevated privileges (as root)

Workaround found: Use the dbus-x11 package instead of the regular dbus package. This package is available in the official repositories and provides dbus compiled without the --without-x option.

To replace dbus with dbus-x11 package, simply install dbus-x11 with your favorite package manager: dbus will be replaced by dbus-x11.


Pamac: “Failed to commit transaction - Transaction not prepared” at the end

So far, it has only been a false alarm: updates are applied successfully.


AMD-Ucode introduction

Unless you’ve already done this previously, All users of AMD-APUs/CPUs should install this update like this:

sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S amd-ucode
sudo pacman -R intel-ucode
sudo update-grub

Step 3 is optional.


Rebuilding fontconfig cache: failed to write cache

Please ignore this message. Upstream already works on a solution. More about the issue here.


LibreOffice has no window decoration in KDE

New line export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3_kde5, once merged into existing /etc/profile.d/libreoffice-fresh.sh , fixes a moderately longterm issue. If it doesn’t work for you, you may use gtk instead of gtk3_kde5 as UI framework.


Installing glibc (2.28-4) breaks the dependency “glibc=2.27” required by lib32-glibc

Install the update either:

  • from terminal: sudo pacman -Syu or;
  • with Octopi instead of Pamac.

Something using Perl/Python/glibc broke

Rebuilds needed!

  • If it’s an AUR package, try to reinstall it from AUR. It most likely needs to be rebuilt.
  • If it’s a repo package, please report and check back regularly for updates.

I’ve lost a Thunderbird addon/feature

Thunderbird 60 disables incompatible addons by default. There’s an about:config switch should you want to force-enable the addon, but many addons simply will not work with the newer Quantum-based Thunderbird.

Read more about Thunderbird 60 here: Thunderbird 60


Firefox - WebGL not working anymore

You may try the following solution:

Open about:config and set security.sandbox.content.read_path_whitelist to /sys/.


libutf8proc>=2.1.1-3 update may require manual intervention

This should normally be automatically fixed via manjaro-system update.

The libutf8proc package prior to version 2.1.1-3 had an incorrect soname link. This has been fixed in 2.1.1-3, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error

libutf8proc: /usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2 exists in filesystem

when updating, use


pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libutf8proc.so.2

to perform the upgrade.

If you receive an “Invalid or corrupted package.” error message with Pamac and if the details contains an output similar to the following:

Try the following steps: close Pamac window first, then launch it again and start the update procedure again. It should continue from where it left off.


Issues with folder view widget in KDE v5.13

KDE introduced a new setting for icon sizes. Now you’re able to define also the size for your panel. If you have a high-DPI display, you may want to increase the value. This will fix the display issue with given widget.

icon-kde-513

Pulseaudio changes

With this update we have a /etc/pulse/default.pa.pacnew. It may be necessary to merge (some lines related to “GSettings” in /etc/pulse/default.pa ) if ‘default.pa’ has been customised.

File conflict engrampa.tap

thunar-archive-plugin: /usr/lib/xfce4/thunar-archive-plugin/engrampa.tap exists in filesystem (owned by engrampa-thunar-plugin)

thunar-archive-plugin has added native support for the Engrampa archive manager. engrampa-thunar-plugin is no longer needed. Remove engrampa-thunar-plugin to continue with the update.


#3

How to handle this one:

(25/25) checking for file conflicts                                                                              
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

removing dunstify is not working:

:: gnome-shell-extension-manjaro-update: removing dunstify breaks dependency 'dunstify'

#4

gnome-shell-extension-manjaro-update and update-notifier can savely been removed. Both are now part of pamac itself.

pamac remove gnome-shell-extension-manjaro-update update-notifier dunstify
pamac upgrade

@Ste74: maybe we should see on how we may update dunstify, before this hits stable branch.


#5

ok. That worked. Thanks.
And afterwards I had to add the pamac updates indicator to the gnome panel.


#6

I fixed now the packages for people wanting the old style :wink:


#7

#8

i got a message:
A whisker menue was closed unexpectedly, should it be restarted again?
YES -> Than the manjaro start menue was there again.
This was also at the stable ubpdate


#9

As noted before, I’m still getting weird keyboard accessibility keyboard notifications during the first few minutes after boot. This time after attempting to write a couple of numbers while numlock was off (this should be on by default?), the “bounce keys enabled” notification popped up. Going into the accessibility settings, I’ve confirmed these items are unchecked. journalctl -p3 -b and journalctl |grep keyboard don’t produce anything unusual. Keyboard is a Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L.

qbittorrent-4.1.5-1 is not working. I think it needs to be recompiled:

#15

How does enable downgrade work in pamac?


#16

Seems to works totally fine on my side.

Screenshot

Does it happen each time you try to launch it, or it happens randomly?

Does it happen even after a fresh boot? On my side, I haven’t tried to launch it right after upgrading my system, I shut down my computer in between.


#17

Happen every time I launch it


#18

Successful update via Pamac, but only after i applied this solution from Unstable; [Unstable Update] 2019-01-02 - Pacman, Pamac, Budgie, Deepin, Systemd, Haskell, Python wrt sudo rm /usr/bin/dunstify.


#19

No problems with qBittorrent either. All works fine.


#20

I will see what is happening with my install later
