Hi community,

Welcome to our eightteenth testing update for 2019. So what do we have with this one?

  • we updated Plasma to 5.15.3
  • more Kernel updates
  • Deepin packages got renewed
  • we pushed out split packages for Pamac. Now you can decide if you want to use the CLI, GTK or Qt UI for your package management
  • lastest Python and Ruby package updates got added

We hope with all these changes Manjaro to be more efficient for you all.


CLT2019

Manjaro will take part on the Chemnitz Linux Days in March this year. You may want to visit our booth with the latest Manjaro hardware and Core Developers present to answer your questions. Feel free to bring your devices if you want to have Manjaro installed on them or problems fixed from our experts.

Partnership with FCS Linux Aarhus

We are happy to announce a new partnership with FCS Linux Aarhus owned by @linux-aarhus. This enables us to offer you Laptops with Manjaro pre-installed and Manjaro Stickers you can use on your own hardware or gift them to a friend. For each sale FCS will donate a percentage to the Manjaro project.

Manjaro v18.0.4 released!

We updated our flagship ISOs of Manjaro Illyria with the latest packages. It comes with refreshed packages and updated tools. You may want to download our XFCE Edition with the latest 4.13 packages, aswell as our most recent styling efforts. Our KDE fans may try our KDE Edition with the latest KDE v5.15 instead. And our GNOME fans may try our Gnome Edition with the latest GNOME v3.30.

Known issues and solutions

vlc-nightly has been dropped

The vlc-nightly package, which was really useful in a time when VLC 3 was not officially out yet, has been dropped on our side and is not in the official repositories anymore. If you still have this package and you want the latest stable version of VLC media player, remove vlc-nightly, then install the vlc package.

Otherwise, you can continue to use vlc-nightly from the AUR (but you’ll have to compile it yourself).

Pamac configuration got reset to the default settings. Can I restore my old configuration? (Should be fixed)

Because the pamac package got replaced by pamac-gtk (pulling pamac-cli and pamac-common at the same time), the package actually got removed during the upgrade process. You should have an output similar to the following:

Pamac
Removing pamac (7.3.4-2)...
/etc/pamac.conf installed as /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave.
Pacman
(1/1) removing pamac     [###########################################] 100%
warning: /etc/pamac.conf saved as /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave

As you can see, your old configuration has been kept on your system as a .pacsave file, and the default /etc/pacman.conf has been installed. That is why settings for Pamac got reset. Notably, it also means that if you had enabled AUR access in Pamac, it won’t be enabled anymore until you enable AUR access again manually.

To get your previous configuration back, you may either:

  • Reconfigure Pamac again as you want manually, or;
  • If you absolutely want to use your old configuration file again, you may simply rename /etc/pamac.conf to something like /etc/pamac.conf.new (the name is not really that important), and then rename /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave to /etc/pamac.conf. In a command-line interface, it can be done with the following command: sudo mv /etc/pamac.conf /etc/pamac.conf.new && sudo mv /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave /etc/pamac.conf . This will restore your old configuration file for Pamac exactly as it was before the system upgrade.

EDIT: The old configuration file should be restored automatically during the system upgrade. See here: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/packages/extra/pamac/blob/master/pamac-common.install

Kodi 18.1: extensions may not work properly.

Kodi 18.1 is now available in our repositories. Since this is a major version change, extensions for Kodi (if you use some) may stop working properly. Developers of those extensions will need to make them compatible with Kodi 18.

If Kodi 18.1 doesn’t work properly for you and you absolutely need to use your extensions, you may use the old kodi package in /var/cache/pacman/pkg in order to downgrade Kodi to version 17.6. Please note that it is a temporary workaround and that the software provided in the old kodi package may stop working properly in the future too. You should not keep the downgrade forever.


Items from previous update sets

Notifications looking weird in XFCE

Since the package dunst includes now dunstfy in the main package notifications may not displayed properly in XFCE. Please uninstall that package to solve that issue. Normally not needed in that edition.

Plasma will not reboot from the Application Launcher

If you update from within Plasma (e.g. from the konsole), you may need to issue a systemctl reboot to reboot.

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.


Pamac: “Invalid or corrupted package.”

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

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.

I’d like to try out pamac-qt (versus gtk) and already having pamac installed, pacman prompts:
:: Replace pamac with extra/pamac-gtk? [Y/n] n
…and here I was expecting another prompt to replace it with pamac-qt…but instead it proceeded to prompt the installation of all the new packages, so I cancelled. I was thinking first removing pamac and then installing pamac-qt manually, but I’m at a hitch trying to remove pamac first:

# pacman -Rns pamac
checking dependencies…
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: manjaro-application-utility: removing pamac breaks dependency ‘pamac>=7.2.0’
:: manjaro-application-utility: removing pamac breaks dependency ‘pamac<7.4.0’

Is the application utility necessary? Can I just do # pacman -Rns pamac manjaro-application-utility and then proceed with # pacman -Syu pamac-qt ? I’m just trying to make sure the logic is right here.

KDE Laptop - Update processed okay but I believe there was a 2 minute stop job delay on restart. I couldn’t actually see what it was doing though as the systemd EFI logo was covering the screen and the keyboard was not responding to allow me to clear it. I couldn’t switch tty either. I just left it to see what would happen and sure enough it eventually restarted. After the restart everything is working fine.

The last updates to Gnome to 3.32 seem to have broken the gnome-settings. Started once and crashes now on start. Anyone else?

So I ended up blowing away that utility and tested out pamac-qt. To me, seems still very much beta.

pamac-qt-KvArcDark

…seems to have trouble with any Kv dark themes, didn’t have a tray icon in xfce (making sure that option was unchecked and after a reboot), update counter reverted back to ‘0’ hours for some reason – I changed that back to 6, closed the app, opened, and tried to open settings again and greeted with “waiting for another package manager to close”…um, :neutral_face:

Gonna blow this one away for now as well and continue using straight pacman.

I am pretty sure that pamac-qt is not intended to be used on gtk - Desktops. It is intended for Qt desktops like KDE Plasma or lxqt.
For gtk desktops like XFCE or Gnome, the pamac-gtk package should be the intended one.

Probably good advice, I’ll have to install pamac-gtk instead since it’s a nice app to have for individual packages and plus aur updates. Some other Qt apps work just fine on my system like qpdfview…maybe it’s time to test out other DEs again, idk.

…anyway the rest of the updates on this announcement went just fine.

Update goes smooth on Gnome
5.0, 4.20, 4.19 booting without issues.
I had a quick look on pamac-qt and noticed that after installation software isn’t marked as installed and if clicked once more it shows as pending (after clicking ‘Back’ it’s ok). Everything else seem to look fine :slight_smile:

there was no Gnome update yet?
Still everything on 3.30 here

Edit: some packages are indeed updated while like 90% is still at 3.30.
Maybe I should wait then.

Pamac gtk works perfectly fine on Qt desktops like KDE, as well as it does in gtk desktops, Pamac Qt is a pointless exercise. The only thing it will achieve is buggy inconsistency.

I don’t see the point either since there are some other GTK based apps installed on Manjaro-KDE already like Firefox.

Maybe just work on better integration (theme, XDG, dpi etc) instead?

Manjaro Cinnamon here.

Did the upgrade with Pamac GUI (GTK, of course). It did the transition from pamac to the three packages (-common, -cli and -gtk) correctly. No problem during upgrade and no early apparent regressions so far on both systems. If I notice something, I’ll make another post.

Hum, pamac-gtk 7.3.4-5? Not 7.3.5-1?

Perhaps it had just been packaged a bit before 7.3.5 was officially released.


Additional packages that could potentially be removed from repos: Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

Spring cleanup time!


I hate to say it (I will look like I spit on LordTermor works here, which is not my intent), but I kinda agree in a way. I hate Octopi (I think it offers a really clunky workflow), but I’m not sure having Pamac made in QT for the sake of having a package manager made in QT will really be that beneficial for Manjaro in the end.

Perhaps it would have been more beneficial to improve what we already had: fixing bugs, maintaining it with incoming versions of libraries, adding additional features (more likely small convenient features, it is pretty mature now), perhaps make it less fragile during upgrades if we happens to find weaknesses (assuming Pamac has a share of responsibility in it)?

Anyway, as said above, it is not like there’s already GTK3 software in Manjaro KDE already (hum, Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp to begin with). Outside of very few (a bit insane?) people, the majority of us has both GTK and QT software on their system (MSM is made in QT btw).


A lot of components of Gnome are still in version 3.30, and some very core components of the desktop environment are still in 3.30 like Gnome desktop and Gnome Settings daemon.

For the crash in Gnome Settings, it is most likely because you also have glib2 2.60.0, like last time. It is a known issue. I’m pretty sure (or, I hope?) that it will be fixed with more updates for Gnome software.

@philm This is a thing to keep an eye on. If Gnome Settings still bugs with glib2 2.60.0, we might have to downgrade glib2 to 2.58.3 again for Stable (if downgrading doesn’t introduce problems in itself).

Actually, I noticed something that I haven’t though of when I first reported my experience.

Don’t be surprised if your configuration in Pamac get reset to default completely. Because the pamac package get replaced, the old pamac package get removed, so a .pacsave file is generated, as said in the output.

Checking available disk space...
Removing pamac (7.3.4-2)...
/etc/pamac.conf installed as /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave.
Upgrading glib2 (2.58.3-1 -> 2.60.0-1)...

Of course, by reading the info given by the package manager, it is not that much of a surprise, but there will surely be people who will say “Pamac settings got reset in the upgrade, what do I do, how do I restore my old config.”

Where to ask for package bugfix updates? (+ My irrelevant opinion on manjaro repos)

Yeah i saw that roll by as i watched the update progress, so once it finished, before rebooting, i opened two Kates side by side, with one version in each, saw all the resets, re-edited my real file, deleted the .pacsave. All good.

There is an issue about this already reported on arch. It as a result of glib2 v2.60 https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61974?project=1&string=glib2

Yup, but it will definitely be asked later.

I wrote some information in the Wiki post, ready to be copy-pasted in the announcement thread when it will it Stable.

Oh, I missed out. :sob:

Seriously though, it might be worth refining the wikipost since the .pacsave will not be generated for everyone. Pamac was replaced for me by pamac-common, pamac-cli and pamac-gtk.

(Although I did find an old grub.pacnew which I had forgotten to delete/rename, so efforts weren’t wasted. :slightly_smiling_face:)
