[Testing Update] 2021-03-09 - Kernels, Firefox-Dev, Thunderbird, KDE Apps 20.12.3, LibreOffice 7.1.1

Unfortunately, there are more people who have the money to buy a computer than people who have the brains to use it. :grin:


Well then. If Manjaro really does dualboot
so difficult, it’s probably time to say goodbye.
Is like with windows.

I’m on kde but using openbox instead of kwin. I use krunner to search window titles. With the update, it has stopped working. I type, but it doesn’t autocomplete window titles anymore. Maybe it depends on kwin now? Anyone knows?

This started happening after the update. Not sure if it’s related :slight_smile:

but it’s not difficult. read the 2nd post and you’re golden.

Some days ago I said Good Bye to Windows and dual booting, just Manjaro as main/unique system. Nothing more needed.

I don’t see the relationship between the grub developers and Manjaro…


never mind. switched to rofi instead of worrying about a fix. But a pity, krunner is nice

Couldn’t care less about this decision… in fact I applaud it. Haven’t had to boot to windows and not being there in grub as a reminder is awesome.

As already said elsewhere: This is an upstream decision, i.e. set by the Grub developers themselves, not Manjaro.
Hence, you will surely encounter the same situation with other distributions using Grub as well.

The solution is as simple as editing /etc/default/grub with root privileges, manually adding the line GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false to /etc/default/grub (or modifying that line accordingly if already present).
Then, run sudo update-grub, and you’re done :slight_smile:

So far, no problems. Good work, thank you very much!

O.K. then sorry.
I thought it was a decision of the Manjaro developers.
Then you should slowly part with Grub.

I came up with the solution to the problem myself, but I still find it annoying to have to make manual changes after every update that contains Grub.

People who know less are then first of all lost.
So sorry again, I was not sufficiently informed then.
