It's a full build with all default applications and uses packages of the 20.0-rc3 stable snapshot (2020-04-22) with kernel linux56.

Please give it a thorough test run and report back any issues and findings :sunglasses:


Discovered a bug(feature not yet known), when the terminal is open and by itself. If you minimize it then restore it. It disappears as soon as you move your mouse. If you hover over where it was and click then it re appears. The interesting thing about this is that if you have a full screen window minimized to your tray it does not behave this way it works as it should. However if you have the second application windowed and not full screen. The terminal does the disappearing trick again. If you click on the other window that is currently open the terminal window pops back up. I have an optimus laptop running with optimus switch set to nvidia at the moment.

Edit: It also does it set to amd only with optimus switch. It seem to only happen when the window is placed on the right side of the screen. When the window is on the left side it does not have this behavior at all.

Hm. Sounds very odd, indeed. Some kind of a composing bug apparently... I will try to reproduce and somehow investigate further.
Thanks for reporting!
@romangg ideas?

@oberon I have a bug maximizing firefox without title bar. Check out the top black border:

I think would be a good idea to replace etcher with Popsicle as image writter tool, therefore the iso will be smaller.

I also have issues with Pragha, sometimes not displaying the music or album artwork in both the player and the taskbar applet, also it is kinda outdated, it hasn't received any update recently, what about replacing it with Lollypop? Or even Rythmbox, although Lollypop is better and looks really nice.


Now that Pamac has snap and flatpak support, and to make manjaro more user friendly and a integrated "ecosystem", maybe removing bauh is a good move.

HexChat is kinda redundant as well because Pidgin is already there.

Other than that, everything is working very smooth, very good job.

I'm now downloading this iso too, third Manjaro on third SSD :smiley:

One PC to test them all
One mirror to find them
One kernel to rule them all
And in the darkness bind them... :smiley:
