[Testing Update] 2019-07-10 - Kernels, Plasma5, Mesa, LibreOffice, Python, Haskell

Hello community,

I am happy to announce another Testing Update. Mostly we have Plasma and Mesa updates with this one.

Some might noticed that since the #snapcraftsummit a lot of package changes went into Manjaro and our available RCs. Also we didn't yet announce 18.1.0-rc3 officially yet. We are still polishing the snap experience for our users. XFCE and Gnome will come with Gnome-Software and our KDE edition has Discover, both with snap support enabled.

This way everybody can easily access the snap store by a click and don't has to hassle to get snaps enabled. This enables us to ship even more proprietary software, which we couldn't before. For example check out on how you may install Spotify on Manjaro.

This update holds the following changes:

  • Plasma5 is now at 5.16.3
  • A new LibreOffice release is out
  • Latest version of Mesa got added
  • We managed to release updates to linux414 and linux419 now properly
  • the usual upstream rebuilds
  • Manjaro Juhraya ISOs got updated, including snap support pre-activated: XFCE, KDE, Gnome

Give us the usual feedback and let us know what you think about this update.

Current supported Kernels

  • linux316 3.16.69
  • linux44 4.4.184 (no legacy nvidia-340 module!)
  • linux49 4.9.184
  • linux414 4.14.132
  • linux419 4.19.57
  • linux51 5.1.16
  • linux52 5.2.0 (few extramodules build, but not all yet!)
  • linux419-rt 4.19.50_rt22
  • linux50-rt 5.0.21_rt15

I am getting this error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/share/man/man1/dunst.1.gz exists in both 'dunstify' and 'dunst'
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
Error installing repo packages

I had to do a

pacman -Syyu --overwrite /usr/share/man/man1/dunst.1.gz

Other than that the update went well: linux419+zfs+nvidia+cinnamon

Thx, we have to see if our overlay has an issue.

It seems to be the previous package which had an issue.

I uninstalled the dunst package and reinstalled.

Correction - there is an issue - just build an ISO from unstable and it fails

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/var/lib/manjaro-tools/buildiso/openbox/x86_64/desktopfs/usr/share/man/man1/dunst.1.gz exists in both 'dunstify' and 'dunst'
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
==> ERROR: Failed to install packages to new root
==> ERROR: Failed to install all packages
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in make_image_desktop().

Maybe it has something do to with this issue

Wine 4.12 spit out a big error on startup.
"Program error : unidentified program encounter a serious problem and need to be closed", winboot.exe

After closing the error window, it then proceed normally. Strange. May need to downgrade ...

After going to the WineHQ forum, it was report also on Ubuntu. Apparently there is now 4.12.1 which address the issue. Can we get it ?

I think, i wait the day till the actual are coming. :smiley:

Keep up the good work! :+1:

Also had that dunst issue besides that it's running smooth. Thanks!

No issues noticed on my LXQT with Kernel 5.2.:+1:

Ya, I know that those might come today. We will see when we manage to provide them.

In regard of dunst, we fixed the file conflict.


Thanks, all updates installed flawlessly on my systems.

I take it the ISO image text in the top post was copied and pasted from the last testing update announcement which means rc3 (2nd July 2019) does not contain the systemd updates which resolve problems with Ryzen 3rd gen.

With the positive answers I received in this pool, I reset the Wiki post completely.

Updated successfully on my Manjaro Deepin. (Update Haskell filezilla deepin-dock) with the 4.19 kernel.

Will be available via rc4.


All systems updated. First system [Frank] updated fine but I have a question.

Is there some new default? My system automatically downloaded all the updates (146). I've never set that to auto-download. My system currently updating did not do this which strikes me as strange.
I can't find a place to turn that off. I'm on metered so I tend to be watchful of random downloading.

which DE? KDE didn't do that to me

It's really bizarre. my other system which just finished updating (Testing, KDE) didn't either.
I would have remembered setting that too.
I've checked every package manager's settings (Not pamac-qt because it crashes at start) and it's turned off.
I think Frank is possessed.:ghost:

Has your PG been talking with my PG again?

Maybe they’re one and the same? Left your system to take over hers? :scream:
