[Unstable Update] 2020-03-07 - Poppler, Systemd v245

Hello community,

here is another Unstable Update for you:


Looking for grouping applications in one of our next release. What do you think about it?

Some feature-updates:

  • poppler packages got updated
  • systemd is now at v245. Please report any regressions!

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 current 19.0.2 ISOs and give us the needed feedback. You might also want to give our latest spin with NX-Desktop a try ...

As always we appreciate your input and feedback for the updates.


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:

wget https://pkgbuild.com/~eschwartz/repo/x86_64-extracted/pacman-static
chmod +x pacman-static
sudo ./pacman-static -Syyu

No grouping for me in Gnome I have my own groups, maybe do it optional.

No issues here with latest systemd v245 on my gnome desktop!

If there is going to be grouping of applications by default, please make it an option that can be turned off. I do not use nor do I like grouping of applications myself, however, I understand some people like it. All grouping does is add another layer between the user and the application they want to run.

@philm I understand that you would like to find out what the community thinks on a change, but limiting the data to TWITter responses, in my opinion, is not a good idea. It was my impression that the forum is here not only for support, but also a way for the community to interact with each other. Many users here do not use TWITter, and any result from the forum would be from actual users of your product not some random individual with an opinion.

Just my 2 Baht.

Thanks!

I think hide some application would be better idea then grouping, who is using avahi, three icons, bauh two icons, caffeine two. It looks amateurish. You can implement menu libre as default program for hide/unhide.

I do not use twitter.

OK for systemd-homed

no unit to mount

for create new user "toto"

sudo homectl create toto --storage=luks --auto-login=on --disk-size=10G

we can resize volume by sudo homectl update toto --disk-size=16G
only a file /home/toto.home is created
can have infos by homectl inspect toto (user ID > 6000)

   User name: toto
 Disposition: regular
    Login OK: yes
         UID: 60057
         GID: 60057 (toto)
   Directory: /home/toto
     Storage: luks (strong encryption)
  Image Path: /home/toto.home
 File System: ext4
   Disk Size: 14.3G
  Disk Floor: 5.0M
   Passwords: 1
Autom. Login: yes

For test, i can mont this file in /home/toto/ sudo homectl activate toto


this user is not a linux user (su doesn't work) , it's necessary to modify PAM

from doc, modify pam (not good) but from this file modify /etc/pam.d/system-auth

After reboot, I can connect as toto with my xfce unstable :smile: no difference from a standard user @openminded now is simple to use - but yes not simple to create (pam)


EDIT: exists now wiki page

Great, but one correction: it should be userdbctl user toto.

BTW, Lennart: "We should simplify home directories manipulation"
Also Lennart: creates homectl with 622 lines man page :sweat_smile:

When I see systemd, I am sometimes tempted to drop to a TTY, but no problem updating in a konsole.

On Gnome unstable noticed this:

(11/17) Compiling GSettings XML schema files...
No such key “allow-bold” in schema “org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Profile” as specified in override file “/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/99_manjaro-settings.gschema.override”; ignoring override for this key.

I'll try to run some test and see what got broken.

Twitter is more the general public, probably not even all of them Manjaro users. For PR it is the better medium.

I installed the gnome updates this morning. Nothing seems to be amiss superficially.

It might work for you when you keep it mostly vanilla. On our end all our customization is broken or need some fixes. So we have to fix our extra extensions and tools before we can forward it to other branches ...

I get using twitter from a PR point of view but not as a (sole!) means to interact with or event get feedback from the userbase/community.

This looks as good as any question in a poll/discussion thread, why not open one here?
