In virtualbox when text is copied from host to guest text becomes high lighted.

That might be a new feature of bash 5.1

Heads up for KDE konsole users. There is a “bug” (behaviour change) regarding text colors:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=430267
This also affects yakuake. Downgrading to 20.08 gets the previous behaviour back.

You could be right however not every new feature is a nice one. I hope when this comes to stable the feature can be turned off. Can’t do that right now sadly

seems like packages rebuilt for boost 1.74 has gone well. however arch has been late to deliver 1.74 because now 1.75 has just made it into arch staging

screenshot in the bug doesnt look so bad

@koshikas, your serve hits me hard :slight_smile:

Take a spike back from me :)

Current konsole app’s colors are about 2-2.5 times darker than was previously. It is hard to fast read more then a few word.

May be you have very bright monitor settings with black turned into dark grey (cause intensive back light inside of monitor). I have cheap IPS monitor with brightness and contrast user settings of 0 both. I feel good for a few years and hate web pages where someone - probably with bright monitor like spotlight is - makes background of a webpage of lightgrey color instead of classical white: that action significantly lower contrast of black text and ability to read faster: symbols recognition load became much higher.

Also I have completely no problems to read text on all black themes: Manjaro KDE theme (Breeze dark), Windows OS theme, Sublime Text, VS Code, this forum, messengers, Konsole app before update, custom apps, etc.
I adjust this screen brightness and contrast settings based on very often to see typical white background to make it not as spotlight and easy to view but sometimes someone makes lightgrey background instead of white, now TUI 2-2.5 times darker. And this turns into a problem.

That is my point of view on that “not so bad” for me.

I think that such lightgrey background instead of white, that new color scheme on old themes of the konsole are UX issues.

I already adjust ordinary colors like intense colors

It is temp crutch. About “temporary” I believe but not sure.

There was some new Unstable updates today

This solved my problems with Poedit

kernel 5.10 seems to work fine

[2020-12-14T23:07:27+0000] [ALPM] upgraded linux510 (5.10.rc7.d1206.g0477e92-1 -> 5.10.0-0)
...

rebooted into new 5.10:

$ uname -r
5.10.0-0-MANJARO

if 5.10 is released, than why it is not 5.10.1 but looks like rcX 5.10.0? As I remember constantly the same version 5.10.0-1 was during all the rcX. And after release it is again the same 5.10.0. Is it right naming?

First build number starts w/ -0, not w/ -1 as other package builds?

Oh, is it finally decided that 5.10 is not a LTS version? Lost the LTS label in MSM.

Please build Manjaro KDE ISO based on 5.10 after deciding questions above.

Thank you for your work!

5.10.1 is out :slight_smile:

yeah, single source of truth (https://www.kernel.org/) somehow lacks LTS label on both of them, news resources are full of “5.10 LTS released!”

5.10 is the next LTS, but will only be named so, when 5.11 is out/stable. Untill then it’ll be just stable.

With kernel 5.10 my bootsplash is gone.

The reason is that 5.10 is built without usual bootsplash and apparmor patches. This might be due to them being incompatible with 5.10 I guess.
@schinfo should know better.

You have 2 choices:
a) Wait for a proper bootsplash patches to become available.
b) Switch to Plymouth.

I saw that without bootsplash my system was faster to load

A post was split to a new topic: Libbpf error message on boot

I just updated Kernel to 5.10.1-2 and the laptop successfully boots, but I get an error that passes by too fast to read. BTF or something. I ran joutnalctl -k and i get the following. This is an older Dell Studio 1535, Intel Duo Core. The last BIOS was from 12/2008.
