[Stable Update] 2019-02-23 - Kernels, Systemd, Browsers, Plasma5, Python, Haskell

I use the option in Octopi, with only being 2 months in myself and not ready to build packages ... go to Tools in the menu bar, then Options. Select the AUR tab. I choose 'Yaourt' and '--noconfirm' ... then any AUR package builds itself; you just need to choose/confirm/provide password. :smiley::+1:t2:

If you want to use trizen, search in Octopi for 'trizen' and it's there, in the main repo.

While that will seem convenient you shouldn't really run any update with --noconfirm

Also, yaourt is not a good option, and pacaur isn't being maintained, so the only realistic option there is trizen.

Octopi could do with an update to support yay...


Thanks for advice. Using TTY for updates, and just a few essential AUR packages ... new, but hopefully will be able to work better with AUR packages at some point. Will install trizen. :smiley::+1:t2:


Updated via TTY. No issues.

Updated 3 machines, one with Nvidia drivers, 2 with nouveau and all in TTY with no issues. :slight_smile:

For 2 years I've always updated in konsole using pacman, and although sometimes I then saw that Plasma was not all working, and maybe once I had to restart from konsole because the menu was not there, after a reboot, all was OK.

But it's so easy to switch to a TTY that I'll do it in future.
Until recently, I wasn't aware that TTY is safer.

(I haven't done the current update yet.
There are newer kernels in testing so I'll wait for the next one.)

I got two message after updated.
warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
filesystem: 755 package: 750
:: Searching databases for updates...
:: Searching AUR for updates...
-> Missing AUR Packages: albert libnm-gtk

Is that means the software albert I installed locally is no more exists in aur ?

Yes. It is missing from the AUR.

Which could mean it has been removed, or in this case moved to Arch community: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/albert/

How do you do this from the terminal? I read that you can doyay -Syu does that update everything including stuff from the AUR?

I type in 'yay', which is equal to 'yay -Syu'. Man page of yay says: If no arguments are provided 'yay -Syu' will be performed.

Wow cool thanks for the info.

I updated via terminal (via octopi) because I hadn't done the 2-19 update yet, and I thought that's what this update was - didn't realize there was a 2-23 one (octopi just says "you got 365 updates" there's no date attached to the release)! And I had already read the forum announcement for 2-19, so thought I was good via terminal.

Anyway, had some plasma issues after the update: couldn't restart or logout or shutdown. The menu was simply missing those items (except for restart). When I got to the screen with the logout/etc options, it would just drop me back to the desktop. I tried systemctl reboot and got a black screen and couldn't get out of it.

So I hard shutdown. And when I restarted everything seems fine. PHEW!

Any help from dev side?
I am still using startx from TTY2 to enter into the Plasma.
Plasma loads on startup and when I login then it launches all the autostart apps but no launcher and no desktop icons are shown.
Then I have to switch to TTY2 and login and start plasma with startx and it works fine.

Can anyone help me with this? I have tried all the option mentioned in the known issues post.

I am not a dev.

Probably best starting your own thread in either 'technical issues' or 'newbie corner'. But before you do have a read of How to provide good information in your posts.

You might be able to trace the issue yourself working from what is provided by
journalctl -b -p3
a prime candidate being whatever display manager you are using (lightdm, sddm, gdm, or whatever).

Yes sddm is what is on my laptop.
journalctl -b -p3
shows the below error

Thanks for your reply.

My my, what a big "surprise", linux is turning into windows (not the good parts).

I am using KDE 5.15.1 with the kernel 4.20.11-1
Since the last update I have the problem that the computer reboot or shutdown with the following message "TLP System startup/shutdown" sticks for 90 seconds. After that the shutdown or reboot is executed correctly. There are no problems when starting.
There are a lot of threads on the TLP issue here in the forum. However, these always concern the problem that the computer does not start in the graphical user interface. I don't have any problems with that.

Bei meinen sieben Betriebssystemen hat insgesamt gesehen alles geklappt. Ich habe bei meinem Desktop-Rechner via chroot und mittels pacman -Syyu gearbeitet. Bei meinem Laptop hat das nicht geklappt, weil ich eine gesonderte var-Partition habe und es nicht schaffe, sie in den chroot-Befehl zu integrieren. Vor dem Anmelden in der grafischen Oberfläche bin ich mittels Strg+Alt+F3 in die Konsole gewechselt und habe dann den Befehl pacman -Syyu gegeben.

Einmal gab es ein Problem, das auch im internationalen Forum angesprochen wurde. Fehler: Konnte den Vorgang nicht durchführen (In Konflikt stehende Dateien) python-pyqt5: /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PyQt5/__pycache__/__init__.cpython-37.pyc existiert im Dateisystem Fehler sind aufgetreten, keine Pakete wurden aktualisiert.Der vorgeschlagene Befehl hat nicht geholfen;pacman -S python-pyqt5 --overwrite ‘*’also habe ich die Datei umbenannt.
Am Tag vorher hatte ich einen Netzwerkdrucker HP HP_ColorLaserJet_MFP_M278-M281 eingerichtet. Der Scanner ließ sich nicht mehr ansprechen nach dem Update. Durch Zufall stieß ich darauf, dass er ein neuere Version eines Plugins brauchte: hplip-3.19.1-plugin.run Man erhält es auf der Webseite von HP.

Hi all I have no issues on my desktop after updating but on my laptop the touchpad horizontal is a bit messed up. It hardly moves the cursor in the horizontal, vertical seems about normal.
The laptop is a hp pavillion g6 with AMD E2 processor. I'm using the 4.14 kernal but did try switching to the 4.19 and that doesn't boot at all.

Plasma TTY. Everything went smoothly.
