Changes made to Grub 2.04-6

Due to some bugs with the Fedora patches in regard of BTRFS we are using now the Ubuntu approach to hide the menu via GRUB_TIMEOUT.

These are the current options to style the timeout:

GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=countdown
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu

You may want to double-check your settings in /etc/default/grub

We also provide a new package called grub-vanilla. Learn more about it here.


Thunderbird 68.0 disabled my extensions!

Thunderbird 68 changes the way extensions work in line with Firefox 68. This will mean incompatible extensions are disabled.

The Thunderbird developers have made it as easy as possible for extensions developers to update the extensions to get them working again.

However, it will take time for extensions to 1) be updated and 2) make their way onto AMO for download.

You have two basic choices:

  1. Add IgnorePkg = thunderbird to your /etc/pacman.conf until your "critical" extension is updated
  2. Keep checking for updates for your "critical" extension, and possibly pester the developer to update it

Option 2 is the more proactive.


pip behaves differently

pip now includes by default the --user flag for all operations.

libbloom>=1.6-2 update requires manual intervention

(Taken from Arch Linux website, 2019-07-11 by Felix Yan. Source: https://www.archlinux.org/news/libbloom16-2-update-requires-manual-intervention/)

The libbloom package prior to version 1.6-2 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 1.6-2, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error

libbloom: /usr/lib/libbloom.so.1 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libbloom.so.1

to perform the upgrade.

tensorflow>=1.14.0-5 update requires manual intervention

From Konstantin Gizdov on August 20, 2019

The tensorflow packages prior to version 1.14.0-5 were missing some soname links. This has been fixed in 1.14.0-5, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname links created by ldconfig. If you get an errors like so.

tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow.so.1 exists in filesystem
tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow_cc.so.1 exists in filesystem
tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow_framework.so.1 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite=usr/lib/libtensorflow.so.1,usr/lib/libtensorflow_cc.so.1,usr/lib/libtensorflow_framework.so.1

to perform the upgrade.

astyle>=3.1-2 update requires manual intervention

Of Antonio Rojas in August 26

The astyle package prior to version 3.1-2 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 3.1-2, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error

astyle: /usr/lib/libastyle.so.3 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libastyle.so.3

to perform the upgrade.

Am I the only one who cringes every time I see "today" in this? If "today" was removed I wouldn't have any issues with it. Not that it's a big issue.

Thank you for all your hard work keeping Manjaro running smoothly

Qutebrowser says on launch

Errors occurred while reading config.py
Unhandled exception: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'strip'

But application will start.
Will investigate.

EDIT:
config.bind("<Ctrl+examplekey>", None) # has been deprecated method for unbindingkeys

has to change to
config.unbind("<Ctrl+examplekey>")

good spot, the extra repo still contains zfs-utils 0.8.1-1

Apparently not, though I don't get the issue with it. It is both logically and grammatically correct.

Oh and no issues. As usual. :+1:

18.1.0 was not released yesterday, that's the issue :wink:

Boy some people must really hate reading old newspapers... :wink:

Why GDM is so slow now?

Have any one from you notice the horrible input delays on GDM(wayland) ? Seeing this on both AMD and Intel graphics.

EDIT: downgrade of mutter helps, thx @pux

I had several problems with GDM, ditched it for LightDM...

Yeah, this is last straw, will be logging in via tty from now on.

I noticed the slowness with a specific mutter version, you may want to check it.
