[Testing Update] 2020-05-30 - NetworkManager, Gnome, Calamares, Haskell

Hello community,

Another testing branch update with some interesting updates for you!


We are happy that the PinebookPro is now shipped with Manjaro KDE by default. Read-up the quirks and needed steps to get your W-LAN going! #stayhome, #staysafe, #stayhealthy*

  • NetworkManager got updated to 1.24.2
  • More Gnome updates
  • Calamares got some needed fixes to work again for our hardware vendors
  • The usual upstream updates including Haskell by Arch

If you like following latest Plasma development you may also like to check out our current version of manjaro-kde-dev, which we build on a regular basis against kde-git master packages. Also check out our latest release Manjaro Lysia 20.0.1! XFCE, KDE and Gnome


Upstream notice

Arch updated their default compression to zstd. We adopted to the same standard. More and more packages will have the zst extension from now on. If you get for what ever reason an error with ZSTD not supported as archive format you can do this:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S pacman-static
sudo pacman-static -Syyu

Gnome-shell-extension-pop-shell is currently incompatible with wayland

... and causes the system to freeze when the first window is tiled and can render it unbootable. Solution is a hard reset and disabling either pop shell or wayland. If the system becomes unbootable, use a live USB to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to disable wayland and reboot.

Older issues

Thunderbird might throw an error of older version available.

Use $ thunderbird --allow-downgrade from a terminal to fix it.

Pamac stuck at "Preparing..."

Users have reported issues with the recent release candidate of Pamac 9.4.0 when initiating transactions, being stuck at "Preparing..." without being able to cancel the transaction and quit Pamac normally.

For now, it is recommended to use pacman to do package management until this issue is solved and Pamac become usable again. Please test out upcoming updates for Pamac to see if the issue becomes solved or not.

If you are stuck in "Preparing...", you will have to manually kill the pamac-managerprocess.

khotkeys identified as an orphaned package

You can remove that package, but might loose some functionality with your key-bindings. We made it now optional to be installed.

More seriously, so far, people that reported to have such issue noticed that the problem goes away at next boot.


Installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency of a package

If you run into an issue because of xorgproto please DON'T follow the Arch suggestion as Manjaro uses the xorgproto-transfer package to make this automatic. If you have an issue, please report and wait for an update from us!

AUR Rebuilds required after updating python 3.7 to 3.8

Packages that depend on python from the AUR will need to be rebuilt after everything else has been updated. You can rebuild some of them with the following:

sudo pacman -S --needed --noconfirm expac yay
yay -S --rebuildtree $(pacman -Qmq $(expac %N python))

You can find other packages that need to be rebuilt by looking at the folders/files in

/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/

To find out what package owns a folder/file in that, you can use the following:

pacman -Qo folder_or_filename

If no package owns a file, it can probably be ignored.

Replace linux52 with community/linux-latest ?

linux52 is EOL and has been removed from the repositories. It will be replaced by a metapackage which will from now on keep you on a maintained kernel.

If you want to keep the old kernel and modules then include them in your pacman.conf's IgnorePkg.

strange, in testing, with normal version we have pamac-cli 9.5.2 :thinking:

Please update via sudo pacman -Sy $(pacman -Qq | grep pamac | sed s/-dev//g) as I removed the pamac-dev packages.

One should avoid -Sy with pacman (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/pacman#Installing_packages). Better use -Syu or -S.

the HSP profile doesn't load at boot, you have to restart the bluetooth systemd service in name of getting handsets working.

There was bigger update this morning.
