:information_source: You may need to rebuild any AUR packages that install files to site-packages … :information_source:

You may need to rebuild any Python packages you’ve installed from the AUR. To get a list of them, you can run:

pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9

And to rebuild them all at once with an AUR helper such as yay, you can do:

yay -S $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9) --answerclean All

But if any of the packages don’t work with Python 3.10 yet, this might fail halfway through and you’ll have to do rebuild the remaining ones one or a few at a time.

Get our latest daily developer images now from Github: Plasma, Gnome, XFCE. You get the latest stable releases of Manjaro from CDN77.

*Python packages from PIP and AUR* - how to upgrade them - detailed instructions

Read this post.

freetype2 update might result in font characters becoming squares

Don’t worry, a relogin to your UI should fix it. We recommend to do the update in a TTY. Affected UIs so far: Gnome, Phosh, Cinnamon.

compiz packages like compiz-easy-patch got dropped from our repositories.

compiz packages like compiz-easy-patch got dropped from our repositories. Due to protobuf update you may need to rebuild that package locally on your end. Compiz-easy-patch removed from repos

Announcement for PipeWire users

Re-enable any per-user enabled pipewire-media-session.service manually:

You should re-enable any per-user pipewire-media-session.service manually to establish a new service alias for pipewire-session-manager.service added with 0.3.38.

systemctl --user enable pipewire-media-session

See the PipeWire Release Notes for more info

Older Issues

OS prober does not run and add other operating systems*

To restore, please execute: echo GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false|sudo tee -a /etc/default/grub && sudo update-grub

For more information, see opening post in [Stable Update] 2021-03-08.

Nvidia card owners
  • We simplified nVidia driver installation. This means we dropped legacy drivers.
    • We recommend to switch over to Nouveau drivers if your card is mentioned here and the feature you need is not in red TO DO here for your particular card.

    • If you however still need proprietary drivers, you may want to execute the following to ensure all parts of the nVidia drivers get installed properly:

      sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300
      If proprietary drivers don't fix everything, please click the â–ş at the beginning of this line to view more info
      1. try installing kernel 5.4 LTS (Long Term Support)
      2. If that doesn’t fix it, take a full system backup, go to a console using Ctrl+Alt+F2 and:
      • Backup /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf if you ever edited that manually
      • remove all nVidia related drivers and applications:
        pacman --remove nvidia*
      • Note which applications are being removed and keep them handy in a list
      • Install the driver first:
        mhwd --install video-hybrid-XXX-nvidia-prime
        (Where XXX is amd or intel if you have hybrid graphics or the whole thing is video-nvidia if you’re on an nVidia-only system)
      • reboot and see if you at least get a screen.
      • Install all the other applications from your handy list that you still need one by one.
      • Restore /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf if you ever edited that manually
      • If that wouldn’t solve the issue open a new issue here referring to this update and posting at a minimum the full output of:
        inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width

      If you however still have issues with your Nvidia card, you may open a new thread in our forum: Graphics & Display - Manjaro Linux Forum or look at our tutorial on compiling old Nvidia drivers.

For AMD GPU users having a black screen with kernel 5.10

Due to a bug in the AMD drivers, please try the following first:


  1. Open a terminal or a TTY
  2. Open /etc/default/grub in your favourite CLI editor (nano vi, emacs`)
  3. Find the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="
  4. Add amdgpu.dc=0
  5. Save
  6. Execute sudo update-grub and reboot

For systemd-boot:

  1. Open a terminal or a TTY
  2. Open /boot/loader/entries/manjarolinux5.10.conf in your favourite CLI editor (nano vi, emacs`)
  3. Add amdgpu.dc=0 to the end of the line options
  4. Save & reboot

For rEFInd:

  1. Open a terminal or a TTY
  2. Open /boot/refind_linux.conf in your favourite CLI editor (nano vi, emacs`)
  3. Find the line: "Boot using default options" "root=
  4. Add amdgpu.dc=0
  5. Save & reboot
Possible 2 Min delay on shutdown with Gnome
  • If you got the problem with shutdown delay (about 2min) on Gnome, here is a workaround:
    • Edit /usr/lib/systemd/user/gnome-session-restart-dbus.service in your favourite editor as root and add Slice=-.slice as a line all by itself like this:

      ExecStart=/usr/lib/gnome-session-ctl --restart-dbus

Touchpad on a ThinkPad stops working

Restart again, please.

$PKGNAME warning: directory permissions differ on $Directoryname

followed by:

Filesystem: NNN package MMM

  • The solution:

    sudo chmod MMM DirectoryName

    Where obviously MMM is the second number you see (the correct one)

  • The explanation:
    Your package expects the security permissions to be MMM but your system is set to NNN. This is just a warning (today) but to ensure you remain up-to-date with the latest and greatest security rules it’s advised to execute the above command.

Systemd error message: .slice: Failed to migrate controller cgroups

If you have a similar error message like this:

systemd[1004]: -.slice: Failed to migrate controller cgroups from /user.slice/user-1000.slice/user@1000.service, ignoring: Permission denied

… you may need to add this Grub parameter to your /etc/default/grub file in line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT: systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=true. To update your grub menu, call: sudo update-grub. For more information on that issue, see also Arch Forum.

Python 3.9 Requires Rebuilds

Instructions for quickly and easily rebuilding affected AUR packages:

# Install yay
sudo pacman -S --needed --noconfirm yay

# Rebuild AUR python packages
yay -S --noconfirm $(pacman -Qqo "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages")
libtraceevent>=5.9-1 update requires manual intervention

2020-10-23 - SĂ©bastien Luttringer

The libtraceevent package prior to version 5.9-1 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 5.9-1, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any of these errors

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

when updating, use

pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/libtraceevent.so.1

to perform the upgrade.

Arch Linux - News: libtraceevent>=5.9-1 update requires manual intervention

OpenVPN connection times out

Workaround: downgrade openvpn (2.5.0-1 => 2.4.9-2).
For a proper solution follow this bug report on Arch Linux: FS#68480 : [openvpn] running unprivileged with iproute no longer working

PAM and PAMBASE got updated, which might prevent you from login

Due to updates from pambase and pam you might take care about any .pacnew files in /etc/pam.d as for example pam_tally, pam_tally2 and pam_cracklib got deprecated. Read in the ArchWiki about managing those files.

Typical issue:

For recovery, it is enough to boot with kernel option “systemd.unit=rescue.target”, then proceed into /etc/pam.d and merge “system-auth” and “system-auth.pacnew”

System takes a long time to boot

If you’ve got errors like Failed to start Network Manager Wait Online. you can try removing systemd from passwd and group in /etc/nsswitch.conf as described here
Update: If you can see the line
dbus-daemon[1453]: [system] Connection has not authenticated soon enough, closing it (auth_timeout=30000ms, elapsed: 45146ms)
in in your dbus log ( journalctl -b -u dbus ), the new/better workaround is to switch cups from service to socket as described here:
systemctl disable cups.service
systemctl enable cups.socket

I think I've some font problems

With the update of fontconfig some major rules how fonts get applied changed. Make sure that your system has ttf-dejavu installed. A more in depth explanation can be found here.

Please RTFT (Read This Fine Thread) first before reporting the same issues over and over again!

Very nice update. Everything works well. Updated with tty2 by yay.

its ok with kernel 5.16.1 , drivers Nvidia 495.46 , YouTube 1080p(avc1) , Steam & Proton 6.3 ( old game OpengGL & new one - vulkan is ok)

Wow, big update.
New year, new softs! I’ll give it a shot.

also i have theses orphans on Xfce

Update break gpg signatures and keys. I had to nuke gpg

sudo pacman -Scc
sudo rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
sudo gpg --refresh-keys
sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate
sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

After this it was all solved


On 5.16.1 I’m getting some lines with:

pstore: crypto_comp_decompress failed, ret = -22!

Deleting files in /sys/fs/pstore/ seemed to not solve the issue on next boot: I deleted with command rm *, but on next boot, again errors, then I noticed more files in that directory, removed again and no more errors on the 2nd reboot, and no more files inside pstore directory.

That’s most likely normal - ATM 300Mz is fairly rare.

I use a 240Hz monitor only 120Mz is supported on a Radeon Pro WX7100 using AMD pro driver from AUR

So you’re saying it’s a driver issue “firmware maybe?”, since it working with the other older kernels.

Without blaming Manjaro, its developers etc., I just want to mention, (just for info) that with this update, games with higher graphical demands (e.g. ETS2, ATS) and games via Proton (e.g. The Binding of Isaac: Repentance) are lagging sometimes a bit, sometimes heavily, sometimes not at all.

Nvidia 495.46 on GeForce GTX 1060 6GB OC1, Intel i7-7700K, Xfce and Linux 5.15 here.

Before this update, everything was fine.
(I do NOT want any assistance to fix this, I just wanted to inform others … i’m sure, with another updates, these issues may disappear again).

As mentioned here, linux 5.16 causes BTRFS cleaner to hog the CPU on file systems mounted with the autodefrag option.
I have been running it for 14 hours now and it does not get better at all - I could try to balance the file systems, but that could take time.

My suggestion is to disable that option and try to enable it with the next kernel, to see if the issue is fixed. If you use SSDs, the fragmentation should not be that much pain.

Minor issue, but qbittorrent is ugly after this update. This is because it got ported to qt6, and the breeze/breath themes don’t support qt6 yet.


it is, for icons you can play around with icon themes, or maybe in settings set it to follow system theme. I’m using a dark theme and it all went painfully dark. setting it to follow system theme with dark breeze icons restored it somewhat

It already had picked up my system icon theme and colors. It just doesn’t follow the correct styling for menus, dialog boxes, fonts, etc.

A post was split to a new topic: Can’t connect from MacBook to Netatalk service

No issues on 4 different laptops, 3 KDE, 1 Sway.

Given all the defrag issues with btrfs in 5.16, it might be wise to hold off on updating the kernel until it’s ironed out:

  • One byte files cause an infinite loop
  • defrag gets stuck in an infinite loop
