Check if your mirror has already synced:


chromium-vaapi-bin needs ICU 64

gcc7 and gcc7-libs where "promoted" as AUR packages (same in unstable branch).
Same with gamin package (even tho is not in the update list) but now is as AUR package.

Is this intentional ?



See here



Ah, so all 3 are removed from Arch repositories too.
No issue then, all good here after reboot :wink:

Xfce4-gtk3 Kernel 5 : Everything is in order, but still the issue with right-click > new file in Thunar. (I know it' s upstream issue).
Works with xfce4-popup-applicationsmenu -r



99 packages here. All went well... @lemust83: until Xfce 4.14 is officially released (2019? 2020?), these kind of bugs will annoy user life.



I changed gtk3 to gt3-classic (gtk3-mushrooms) and downgraded it to 3.24.5. Is the one that worked for me. Don't know if this could caused other problems, but the right-click -> new file in Thunar is working.

*My Thunar is gtk2, why gtk3 affected it, maybe some dependency in common.

**The problem is: where to find gtk3-classic-3.24-5? I have it on /var/cache/pacman/pkg, other people may not.

***I found here that could be a theming problem:

Unless you have thunar-gtk2 installed from AUR, you have a gtk3-based thunar.
The current version of the repos is at 1.8.4-1, which is gtk3-based. Thunar is released independently of xfce, starting from thunar 1.7.0 thunar is gtk3-based. https://git.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/tag/?h=thunar-1.7.0. Hence, it is caused by gtk3 as described in previous update sets.

But, there is a thunar-gtk3-1.8.4-2, so I thought thunar-1.8.4-1 is gtk2 based, both are in the repos.
Maybe it's time for me to upgrade to Xfce-gtk3...



Update went well for me except I had to restart pulseaudio after the update, didn't have sound on Manjaro Deepin initially after first boot



Upgrade went fine but I noticed, that the following 32-bit packages are not upgraded to mesa 19.0.2:

  1. lib32-mesa 19.0.1-1
  2. lib32-vulkan-intel 19.0.1-1


Same thing on Arch Linux, the 32-bit version is lagging behind currently.

So it will come later, unless the team decide to push "-0" package for the 32 bit version.
