[Stable Update] 2020-07-19 - Kernels, KDE, LibreOffice, Mesa, Cinnamon, Deepin, Pamac, Browsers

1x Xfce on a Thinkpad X1 6th Gen (Type 20KG) and Kernel 5.6.16 (updated to 5.6.19) using the package manager in Xfce - worked fine as far as I can see and test at the moment

1x Xfce on a X570 AMD 9 3900X with 5700XT and Kernel 5.7.0 (updated to 5.7.9) using the package manager in Xfce (with steam and games and more software) - worked fine as far as I can see and test at the moment

You could change to calibre-python3 since python2 is no longer supported.

2 community/calibre-common 4.20.0-1 (24.3 MiB 53.1 MiB) (Installed)
Ebook management application (common files)
1 community/calibre 4.20.0-1 (5.1 MiB 37.5 MiB) (Installed)
Ebook management application (python2 build)

No issues with Calibre here...

Thanks for the advice : I will do it.

But the question still remains.
In the stable repository there is a package named calibre ; this package depends on python2-pillow that doesn't exist anymore in the repository. My conclusion (unless something eludes me) is that the calibre package cannot be installed.

If that is right, there is a broken calibre package in the repository.

But what exactly do you mean by that ? I haven't got any problem with calibre either since I installed it a long time ago. The question is whether it can be installed now by a new user !

I've updated my computers running Manjaro KDE. After the update I've had the same issue that the 2020-06-16 Testing Update: The systray applet icons have gone away despite I mark as "always show", only appears the MSM.

I think I'm the culprit because some time ago I played with the systray icons, I modified its spacing by messing with the main.qml file inside this location:

plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/

I've deleted the folder org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray located on:

/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/

Logout and login and fixed the issue. Lesson learned, only touch system files when it's really needed.

Regards!! :grinning:

This completely broke qt5 rendering in my deepin de. I have no control over size or location of qt app windows and none of my desktop kwin settings are being honored and my dock does not launch upon start up I have to end the process and it launched correctly after it auto spawns. Running 5.6.17-2rt9 here

I never removed that patch. But feel free to add it @philm
The cleanup only removes outdated patches from the repo which the PKGBUILD no longer uses.

After this update - from a fresh installed manjaro stable "gnome"
GDM did not start. Made 3 times new installation on a new machine (B550-Board)
Some kernels except 5.6

Minor AUR-related issue:
It appears that eigen no longer provides eigen3 which broke gnudatalanguage dependencies. (Simple fix in the gnudatalanguage PKGBUILD of changing the dependency).

Hi,

@Manjaro Team:

I tried your new Manjaro 20.1-rc1 KDE version. No problem with the installation and the system works well, but I encounter two problems:

  1. LibreOffice 6.4.5 wasn't available in the stable branch when I installed the rc1, so I installed the libreoffice version proposed : 6.4.3. I received these errors during the installation of libreoffice:

  1. I can't install Gimp 2.10. Each time I receive that kind of message:

Install popple(0.88.0-1) breaks the popple dependance=0.90.1 requise by popple - remove popple-qt5 and retry.

It seems to be a problem with poppler.

As you put new updates in the stable branch, I will see if I must do updates. If I've got errors I will come back.

Regards.

All patches still applicable have already been re-added July 17, but {this one](https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11662083/) was never there apparently. It seems to address different cards.

...here you can read up, always recommended

Thanks for all the hard work peeps. :slight_smile:
Updated KDE via TTY and all was smooth.

Further to the xps 13 wireless problem, working through the steps at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_configuration/Wireless#Device_driver ,

ip link only finds the loop back controller.
lspci -k finds the wireless controller on 00:14.3
sudo dmesg | grep firmware says that the firmware is loaded by driver iwlwifi
sudo dmesg | grep iwlwifi gives some errors including:

Failed to start RT ucode: -110
Firmware not running - cannot dump error
Failed to run INIT ucode: -110

Google being of no avail on that, I solved the issue by downgrading temporarily. I'll try upgrading again in a few weeks when hopefully the kinks are sorted out. If anyone else hits this one I used the following pacman command and then rebooted. The rest of this huge upgrade has been solid for me ā€” well done folks!

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-firmware-20200519.8ba6fa6-1-any.pkg.tar.zst /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux54-5.4.44-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Smooth update, but there are some plasma related issues which created some inconsistencies here and there.

My AMD CPU and GPU based Toshiba netbook will no longer boot with the updated 5.7.9-1 kernel.
It had been working fine with previous 5.7 kernel versions. After the GRUB menu the boot process begins and displays Booting 'Manjaro Linux' after which the system hangs, it does not respond to any keyboard presses, I have to force the power off.

It will however boot and run fine if I select an earlier kernel (5.6) from the GRUB menu.

Thanks for the update, but it actually took so long that it made me to switch my main machine to Arch...

Anyway I still have 2 machines with Manjaro. One updated without any problem, but the other one has problem with kernel 5.7. When I start Plasma, I have black background with yakuake window (but can't get focus) and SiriKali complains about missing fuse module. Other autostart applications appear on screen, but without any decoration. Only thing I can do is to switch to another tty and restart with another kernel. When I switch kernel to 5.6 series, everything is working as expected.

Great update. One checksum failure on the Kernel but that resolved itself. Only issue I had was

conflicting files:
-python-matplotlib: /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/matplotlib-3.2.2-py3.8-nspkg.pth already exists in the filesystem, if this file is not needed, remove it and retry

Once I removed it it worked on problem for me.

For other noobs who come across this and can't delete this you can use

sudo rm /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/matplotlib-3.2.2-py3.8-nspkg.pth

most things went fine, however almost all my system tray icons are gone: not invisible, but they don't show up
Screenshot_20200720_135505
even though they are enabled to be shown:
Screenshot_20200720_135612
rebooting, changing themes and clearing ~/.cache did not fix it

any suggestions?

nevermind, I wasn't reading this thread carefully enough, this fixed it:
