Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

Kind of the reverse here ...
Apparently acetoneiso2 is in the arch repos, but not in ours? ..

Hm. I see we have acetoneiso2 blacklisted. Seems I had already re-introduced it last year, but apparently there was a reason for it to be blocked again, I'm not sure what's the deal here... @philm ?

We have to see. If upstream works then we can use it ...

It has been removed a year ago because it started to show ads and doing cryptocurrency mining too. Here's the old thread.

It has been decided with a pool to remove it from the repos completely once and for all.

Thats a perfectly good reason.

@philm fancontrol-gui is now a couple years and a couple versions behind. I tried it today, it probably needed a rebuild awhile back:

$ fancontrol_gui 
qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
 "Error loading QML file.\n25: plugin cannot be loaded for module \"Fancontrol.Qml\": Invalid QML singleton type name \"base\"; type names must begin with an uppercase letter\n"

Installing the AUR git version automatically removed fancontrol-common, so it appears it's obsolete now. I'm not sure about fancontrol-kcm since I don't use KDE.

@jonathon, sorry, I keep forgetting what's the deal with tlp... Do we still need this overlay?
If so, it seems we should update these packages:

newer overwritten sync packages:


   tlp-1.2.2-1-any.pkg.tar.xz  ->  tlp-1.2.1-1.0-any.pkg.tar.xz
   tlp-rdw-1.2.2-1-any.pkg.tar.xz  ->  tlp-rdw-1.2.1-1.0-any.pkg.tar.xz

@Ste74, can this overlay of polkit be removed, or are there any customization we need to keep?

newer overwritten sync packages:


   polkit-0.116-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  ->  polkit-0.115+24+g5230646-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I m not at my manjaro pc.. Who build this polkit overlay.. If i m the man i don t remember why we build so we can remove and let see what happen... :wink:

There is custom settings based on experiences of Manjaro users. Some settings are modified during the build of the package with some sed magic.

Quoting the PKGBUILD:

  # These changes represent feedback gathered over time from Manjaro users and
  # should prevent "hidden" issues with USB devices and performance issues
  # with SSDs.
  # Anyone looking for further power savings can easily alter these settings
  # after installation.

  # Be conservative with SATA ALPM to prevent poor SSD performance and
  # potential data corruption; makes little difference in normal system usage.
  sed -i '167s/ min_power/ max_performance/' default

  # Disable aggressive USB device autosuspend.
  # This prevents "hidden" issues with USB hardware that is incompatible.
  sed -i '270s/enable/enable aggressive/; 272s/=1/=0/' default


Manjaro build files for polkit has a .install and a .patch. As for it it is still relevant or not nowadays, that's a good question, I don't know honestly.

tlp was modified by @jonathon unless someone else changed something since.

Amarok needs to be rebuilded against the current libraries
as it sad in this tread

Thank you for letting us know!
I have just now rebuilt an updated version amarok 2.9.0.r367.gfc370bbebf in unstable.


deepin-screenshot has been updated upstream, with an important fix (blurring wasn't working correctly) - can it be updated in the Manjaro repos too? It's gone from 4.1.11 to 4.2.0.
