Issues with the Stable Update 2019/04/03

After updating and rebooting my system (Manjaro KDE),

  • my Desktop wallpaper isn't showing
  • Latte dock also isn't showing icons on the dock (although it is responding but no icons)
  • Screen tearing is also occurring too
  • Most of the Animations are not working, only few like fading on menus and on logging on screen are working only
  • Blur on terminal background is also not working.

Could be related to mesa, but i have not much experience with AMD GPU's
downgrading mesa might help.

Check your mesa version first

pacman -Qi mesa | grep Version 

If it's 19.0.1 and you want to downgrade to 18.3.5 then:

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
sudo pacman -U mesa-19.0.1+really+18.3.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz lib32-mesa-19.0.1+really+18.3.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz 

else use pacman -Syyuu to force the installation of 19.0.1


Problem solved now. I forced the update through -Syyuu command.

This saved my day.

Thank You ! :smiley::wink::yum:

I have to chime in and say that I was also someone who was having a problem getting into my Gnome setup using an AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with integrated video. I was still able to drop down to the command-line interface to log in as root.

After seeing the advice in here and in a few other threads about using pacman -Syyuu, I gave this a try. This worked and here I am to testify that.

I forget which 5 packages were changed but all of those that were replaced had "+really+18.3.5" trailing within the names.

It's all good now.
