The new version of pamac-gtk is okay, clearer than ever. (10.1.0beta-1)

I’ve got one minor issue on Gnome 40 where the dropdown-menu for setting the default web-application (and E-mail - but doesn’t matter) is greyed out. Is there any way to set the default apps manually via cli?

Old design of pamac-gtk was better.

It’s better with "gtk3-nocsd"

My first reaction to the updated pamac is quite favorable. i like the new interface and it even seems to run faster.

I’m running Plasma desktop.

Hello, I wanted to check on gnome and switched to unstable from testing but after doing the upgrade I got stuck when GDM was supposed to be loaded:

I downgraded to “testing” again - not sure what the system wants to tell me except it could not run gnome but maybe its helping you folks.

Just a heads-up, there’s a current archlinux/less bug report on less v580 (beta). Here’s the original forum discussion.

Searching for less and systemd at manjaro.org/branch-compare shows v580 and v247.4 in Unstable. If less “568 or newer” isn’t required by systemd until 248, couldn’t Manjaro stay at less 563 at this time. :thinking:

I’ll keep a note on this one. Let’s see if we update to systemd 248 series anytime soon.

I quite like also the new Pamac interface.

I just find it more difficult to distinguish installed from non-installed packages in the list at first sight.
Yes there are specific icons, but a different background color could help.

Not really, but Extension: BaBar helps while waiting for DtD and DtT.

I do not see any difference - have I to clean my glasses?
On Gnome 40. Makes things ugly. But that is a matter of taste.

Switched over from Stable to Unstable for the latest version of Gnome. No issues so far!

Atm I’m using “Frippery Panel Favorites” which I found thanks to another user.

You should restart or at least restart the x server

Does it work with GNOME 40?

Yep, it does. Haven’t tried all of Frippery’s features, though.

There is a Gnome 40 version. Not yet in “gnome-extensions” but works.
