  • pamac-dev
  • pamac-dev-tray-appindicator

Items from previous update sets

Gnome 3.32: Two extensions removed from our repos.

We have dropped two packages that shipped additional extensions for Gnome: gnome-shell-extensions-topicons-plus-huttli and gnome-shell-extensions-taskbar. We won't maintain Topicons Plus and Taskbar anymore.

Those extensions are not in active development anymore and may not work properly (or not work at all) on Gnome 3.32. Notably, it has been reported that using Topicons Plus on Gnome 3.32 may leads to very high CPU usage.

We strongly recommend you to disable those extensions if they are enabled (Tweaks > Extensions) and remove those packages with your favorite package manager. To prevent potential problems with the next version of Gnome, you may do those steps (or at least the first one) before upgrading your system.

Gnome 3.32: Various problems

There is currently several problems with Gnome 3.32. Here is what we know so far.

1. Possibility of broken extensions
Broken extensions is something to expect when transitioning between major versions of Gnome, especially if you are using extensions that are not shipped by default on Manjaro Gnome. If you have a broken extension taken from somewhere else than Manjaro official repositories, you will have to contact the maintainer on the source you have taken the extension from to get more support. You may also want to report the problem to the developer(s) of the extension (if not the same person/group).

It is possible that extensions become so broken on Gnome 3.32 that it makes Gnome Shell crash completely when trying to log in, thus making Gnome completely unusable. For example, we have a report of such issue with a third-party extension (that doesn't come from Manjaro's official repositories) called Extensions.

To decrease the risk of breakage (especially if running Gnome extensions that does not come from Manjaro official repositories) and make the upgrade smoother, you can disable all Gnome extensions (Tweaks > Extensions) before upgrading your system, then enable them one by one only after being logged in a completely new session on Gnome 3.32.

2. Using world clocks can break Gnome Shell completely
If you have configured world clocks in Gnome, it may make Gnome Shell segfaults and crashes when trying to log in for a graphical session, making Gnome unusable. If it happens, you will need to reset your parameters for world clocks with the following command (do it in TTY): dbus-launch gsettings reset org.gnome.clocks world-clocks.
See this Arch Linux thread and this ticket from upstream.

3. Gnome Shell may crash completely when resuming from sleep if you use Wayland
If you are using Wayland (instead of X.org), Gnome Shell may crash when resuming from sleep. Upstream is aware of this issue. As a workaround, you may use X.org instead of Wayland for now.

4. Miscellaneous
Some programs don't get focused after being launched. Reported to upstream and confirmed for distributions other than Manjaro too.

Yaourt: Rest in peace

Yaourt has been removed from our repositories completely. We won't maintain the yaourt package anymore, which means that you will not receive any updates from us for this package. A very old package named yaourt-gui-manjaro has been removed at the same time too.

If you are still using Yaourt, we strongly encourage you to switch to an alternative like Pamac CLI (package: pamac-cli), Trizen (package: trizen), Yay (package: yay) or Pacaur (package: pacaur); and uninstall Yaourt from your system.

In addition to that, we have dropped support for several packages that depended on yaourt: allservers, pacli and pacli-jwm. Those packages has been removed from the official repositories completely.

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).

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.

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:

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.


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.

Security Issue

Zombieload Attack

With all current supported kernels you are vunerable to the new reported MDS Issue. Upstream released already needed patches for the following kernel series: 5.1, 5.0, 4.19, 4.14 and 4.9. We will try to provide them as soon as possible, after internal testings.

Affected are Intel CPUs. Here the list of non affected CPUs:

  • Processors from AMD, Centaur and other non Intel vendors
  • Older processor models, where the CPU family is < 6
  • Some Atoms (Bonnell, Saltwell, Goldmont, GoldmontPlus)
  • Intel processors which have the ARCH_CAP_MDS_NO bit set in the IA32_ARCH_CAPABILITIES MSR.

Contain patches that have only seen the "public eye" for about 5 minutes. So be forewarned, they might break things, they might not build, but hopefully they fix things. Odds are upstream will be fixing a number of small things in this area for the next few weeks as things shake out on real hardware and workloads. So don't think you are done updating your kernel, you never are done with that, at least on Intel CPUs. Intel will additionally provide needed microcode updates to fix things from their end too.

Additional information about this issue can be found here.


Well who'd have any doubt right? I'm getting more and more convinced that the roots of Intel's single core preformance dominance over AMD are just in things like this. Sorry I'm just overwhelmed with all these security issues peculiar to Intel CPUs.

But enough for offtop. I came here to say that another bunch of updates in Unstable was installed and caused no issues at least. Nothing to complain about :upside_down_face:

I'm always using AMD CPUs when possible. All kernels for Manjaro are currently compiled on an AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU.


Is Kernel 5.2 rc0 affected?

Yes. Patches for this only went in hours ago. You can expect updated kernels in one week, as we won't rush out things without testing them before.


No issues noticed on my LXQT with Kernel 5.1.:+1:

Hahaha So funny, i saw the mesa update and I've thought, should i bother you to ask for it. (For my nouveau investigation..) Its simple not necessary to ask :slight_smile:
By the way, how do i find out if the update was 100% taken in place?

BTW /etc/skel/.bashrc still has this:

# better yaourt colors
export YAOURT_COLORS="nb=1:pkg=1:ver=1;32:lver=1;45:installed=1;42:grp=1;34:od=1;41;5:votes=1;44:dsc=0:other=1;35"

Single core perf be damned ;') thanks for the clean and quick response to the vuln! If ayymd needed it anyway

Installed the Gnome Testing 18.1 preview 3 today and then did the update after that. No problem.

Manjaro KDE 18.1 Pre-Testing.... works well.

Alright - i3 now my new homebase (done with gnome XD) and no problems at all on testing branche after fresh install <3

Some packages that python-requests depends on were updated but the version of python-requests that's in the repo (2.21.0) is incompatible with them.

I solved it for now by installing python-requests 2.22.0 through pip:

sudo pip install "requests==2.22.0"

Other than that everything looks good :+1:

Watch out for potential file conflicts in the future.


I have issues with xfwm4-gtk3-4.13.1-14 package. Panels and plank dock keeps getting invisible and visible contantly. Kind of flashing on/off. If i fullscreen a window it mostly stops. Disabling compositing stops the flashing. I reverted back to previous version for now.

Perfect system would be a lightweight-AMD-gaming 15" notebook PC with Manjaro compatible hardware.

The issue was fixed with revision 14.1
