Removing python2 from the repositories

2022-09-23 - Jelle van der Waa

Python 2 went end of life January 2020. Since then we have been actively cutting down the number of projects depending on python2 in our repositories, and we have finally been able to drop it from our distribution. If you still have python2 installed on your system consider removing it and any python2 package.

If you still require the python2 package you can keep it around, but please be aware that there will be no security updates. If you need a patched package please consult the AUR, or use an unofficial user repository.*

Arch Linux - News: Removing python2 from the repositories

* Note: Unofficial user repositories are not supported


Changes with Back In Time packages
  • backintime has been renamed to backintime-qt
  • backintime-cli has been renamed to backintime

After replacing backintime-cli with backintime, you will need to install backintime-qt manually if you want the Qt frontend installed again.


electron12, electron13, electron14 & electron16 have been dropped to the AUR

Unsupported Electron packages have been dropped from the official repos to the AUR. They no longer receive security updates and nothing in the repos depend on them.

If you have AUR packages depending on those versions, install the binary version from the AUR to replace them; i.e., electron16-bin.

See FS#75490 - electron12, electron13, electron14, electron16 are unsupported and vulnerable packages

End of Support for 15.x.y and 16.x.y

Electron 15.x.y and 16.x.y has reached end-of-support. As per Electron’s new 8-week cadence, we were supporting the latest four versions of Electron until May 2022. With this Electron 19 release, we’ll return to supporting the latest three major versions, as well as the alpha, beta, and nightly releases.

Release electron v19.0.0 · electron/electron · GitHub


element-desktop dependency error (fixed with 1.11.4)
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing electron (20.0.0-1) breaks dependency 'electron19' required by element-desktop

The upstream package was already flagged out of date (it needs to be rebuilt against latest electron).

Workaround for now:

sudo pacman -Syy electron electron19 --asdeps
sudo pacman -Su


Glibc 2.36 update will break EasyAntiCheat within Proton (should be fixed with glibc 2.36-2)

Temporary workaround for now is to use the flatpak version of steam:

sudo pacman -S flatpak --needed --noconfirm
sudo flatpak install com.valvesoftware.Steam -y

You can use flatseal (another flatpak app) to grant it access to your existing game library so you don’t have to re-download your games (add the game library install path under “Other files” under “Filesystem”).

sudo flatpak install com.github.tchx84.Flatseal -y

For advanced users (not recommended by us): patched glibc and lib32-glibc are available here. They remove the commit that broke EAC.


Fixed: Pamac shows archlinux-keyring (20220713-2) and manjaro-keyring (20220514-2) as orphans
sudo pacman -D --asexplicit archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring

Resolved: w/ base 3-2 Revert changes:

sudo pacman -D --asdeps archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring


wxWidgets 3.2 update may need manual intervention

Packages have been renamed from wxgtk- to wxwidgets-. The GTK2 frontend is no longer provided. If you have wxgtk2 installed, the upgrade will fail with:

In such case, uninstall wxgtk2 first and then proceed with the upgrade.


Linux518: could not insert 'amd_pstate': No such device

With Kernel 5.18.11 there was added a regression to AMD P-State driver preventing it from loading.


Wireplumber 0.4.11 may crash for GDM users

Currently there is an issue with 0.4.11 and GDM crashing on boot-up. More in the upstream bugtracker issue: wireplumber segfault: system boot and could see in my dmesg (#305) · Issues · PipeWire / wireplumber · GitLab


Locale file changes

C.UTF8 locale is now included in glibc:

Credits @diabonas for this change. Systemd wants us to include C.UTF8 by default and it seems the locale may be in included by glibc upstream in the future. To fix building and avoid nasty fixing in devtools, we include the locale in the package. See systemd/systemd#23252 (comment) FS#74864 : [systemd] >= 251 breaks devtools' locale

There is a pacsave for /etc/locale.conf as it has been removed from the filesystem package.

UPDATE: With filesystem 2022.06.08-2, it will automatically restore /etc/locale.conf if it did not already exist.

There is a pacnew for /etc/locale.gen. Please review it and regenerate your locale if necessary.

This is still fall-out from the GNOME 43 testing update on 2022-11-08

Logging into the session takes unusually long, as well as starting the nautilus file manager.

Thats because afc-volume-monitor is expecting OpenSSL 1.1, but it obviously has no dependency on it.

Install openssl 1.1

sudo pacman -S openssl-1.1

So, checking the dynamic linker

ldd /usr/libexec/gvfs-afc-volume-monitor

||libssl.so.1.1 => not found|
||libcrypto.so.1.1 => not found|

==> gvfs-afc-volume-monitor is missing a dependency on openssl-1.1

… but everything went okay update wise.

Thanks! :+1:

I just have to report, reinstalling newest Gnome, fixed the issue with startup error.
I just had to report here as other thread is locked. So, everything is fine now.
Haven’t noticed any other problem, actually it works perfect now :stuck_out_tongue:
In the future I will use just pacman -Syuu not -Syudd :stuck_out_tongue:

should be shipped on next testing update:

Upgrade went smoothly

Just FYI for you and other UK users:

The University of Kent’s Mirror Service (www.mirrorservice.org) will be unavailable from approximately 08:00 15/11 until 10:00 17/11 UTC. This is due to unavoidable network maintenance.

Just to add that systemd was downgraded from 252-1 to 251.1-8, couldn’t find any changelog for this.

Possibly pipewire problem since this update:
(Wayland / free amd-graphic drivers / no bluetooth)
QJournalctl tells (level = error):

pipewire[916]: mod.x11-bell: XOpenDisplay() failed
pipewire-media-session[917]: spa.bluez5: GetManagedObjects() failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner

Seems not systemd related - same when upgrading to 252.1-1 or keeping 251.8-1.
Prior pipewire version shows no “error”

I am confused. I suddenly get

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

Were the dependecies of manjaro-i3-settings changed?

Is this supposed to work on wayland? mod.x11-bell sure sounds like it’s intended for X11.


Perhaps you want to remove pipewire-x11-bell package?

manjaro-pipewire benötigt optional pipewire-x11-bell: X11 bell
manjaro-pipewire optionally requires pipewire-x11-bell: X11 bell

After removing pipewire-x11-bell package:

pipewire[906]: pw.module: No module "libpipewire-module-x11-bell" was found
pipewire-media-session[907]: spa.bluez5: GetManagedObjects() failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner

Seeems to be not so simple as wanted…
But no disturbing effects on my machine.

Second line “pipewire-media-session”… persists.
Btw.: pipewire-x11-bell
is an optional dependency of pipewire - and - manjaro-pipewire

that’s fine. manjaro-pipewire is just a metapackage

qt5-wayland is causing widgets to open in the top left corner and window overview is “locked” on the bottom.
I guess commit aed15df34710dd5f95f7993e1a1892ee41b5661b is (still) causing this.

Downgrading the package helps.

I made a backup of /etc/skel and .../99_manjaro-i3.gschema.override and uninstalled manjaro-i3-settings with

pacman -R manjaro-i3-settings

Everything seems to be ok and I was able to update as usual.

seems it gets tracked here: 461856 – [wayland] wrong window position and size after upgrade qt5-wayland (5.15.7+kde+r49-1 -> 5.15.7+kde+r52-1). Do you use Lattedock by chance? @gero45
