[Stable Update] 2020-03-24 - Kernels, KDE Frameworks 5.68, Gnome 3.36, LibreOffice 6.4.2

For anyone still experiencing hplip __pycache__ issues here is the workaround @fredb74 it's not that manjaro don't care about hp printer owners, the hplip packages are upstream from Arch and not maintained by manjaro developers. As stated by philm, the new manjaro-system (make sure the mirrors you use are synchronised before updating) and hplip build were supposed to negate this issue.

Found the issue. Check vercmp $(pacman -Q | grep 'hplip' -m1 | cut -d' ' -f2) 1:3.20.3-2

I have no HP printer installed. It is one from Kyocera.

Maybe uninstalling HPlib fixes this issue?

Yes, indeed. If you don't own an hp printer do that

hplip is installed on basically every manjaro install however, hopefully the workaround is implemented so not everyone has to deal with it

Most likely manjaro-system-20200324-3 should fix it ...

vercmp $(pacman -Q | grep 'hplip' -m1 | cut -d' ' -f2) 1:3.20.3-2
-1

Let's see when the updated manjaro-system package is synced and try again :slight_smile:

Thanks, worked for me so far (didn't reboot yet)!

Thank you Manjaro team! I love this distro <3

[EDIT] I rebooted and... everything fine, as usual :wink:

when everything is correct you should end up with this output

vercmp $(pacman -Q | grep 'hplip' -m1 | cut -d' ' -f2) 1:3.20.3-2

[edit]
Full upgrade with pacman -Syyu went through after that though. Rebooting with fingers crossed :slight_smile:

[edit 2]
Rebooted succesfully.

System: Cinnamon, kernel 5.5, Nvidia 440x

Now, with the latest manjaro-system-20200324-3 the update went well.

2 * KDE and 1 * XFCE computers with different hardware.

Thanks!

This worked for me! Thank you!

Update process unable to start this morning :

Checking inter-conflicts...

Update process got stuck there.

Mirror may not be synced yet, check: https://repo.manjaro.org/

Can try sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

You are using a mirror, which hasn´t synced yet.

Maybe you should use a mirror from a country nearby.

Thanks, "kudos" !

I'm having some issues, both with gnome calendar, and gnome clocks:

gnome-calendar 

(gnome-calendar:3125): GcalEvent-CRITICAL **: 11:12:50.997: gcal_event_is_multiday: assertion 'GCAL_IS_EVENT (self)' failed

(gnome-calendar:3125): GcalEvent-CRITICAL **: 11:12:50.997: gcal_event_is_multiday: assertion 'GCAL_IS_EVENT (self)' failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

and clocks

gnome-clocks 

(org.gnome.clocks:3278): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:13:54.168: Theme parsing error: <broken file>:1:0: Failed to import: The resource at “/org/gnome/clocks/css/gnome-clocks.adwaita.css” does not exist
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

and also, the folders are very small:
small folder

I just updated, restarted, and have an issue with gnome-shell.

  • In the top bar the position of icons and text are wrong.
  • Also there are missing icons you can see nautilus in the screenshot.

I disabled gnome extensions. It is the same behaviour in Xorg and Wayland.

Screenshot from 2020-03-24 10-52-17

update
Alright it was only an issue with a custom icon pack. Everything works normally now.

Same here. Initially I got errors after trying sudo pacman -Syu.
Then I did sudo pacman -Syyu and the installation completed successfully.
I rebooted and everything seems to be fine.

For Gnome it is critical not to run it in a graphical session. It is better to do a TTY session in a terminal. It is common that it might break, especially if you have extensions added which are not yet compatible to 3.36. I'll note that in the announcement.
