[Testing Update] 2018-09-30 - Kernels, Nvidia, Wine, Pamac-Dev, Python, Haskell

What exactly is not working for you? Both work fine for me.
With new nvidia 410.57 on GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, linux418 and linux419 with grub-quiet.

It appears they conflict with each other?

You don't list the conflicting files at all. Try to install one of the packages.

Press any key to continue...

plasma5-theme-adaptabreath is a package by Manjaro. The others are from Arch upstream. So we have to fix plasma5-theme-adaptabreath. Try to remove that theme and reinstall it later.

Removed plasma5-theme-adaptabreath
Installed adapta-gtk-theme-3.94.0.92-1 adapta-kde-20180828-1
They installed correctly, will try to install plasma5-theme-adaptabreath,later.
Thanks

Went fine on my low end testing laptop (Gnome, 4.18.11). Thanks a lot. I am pretty sure that icon themes and themes make a difference to push the performance a little bit. I am gonna investigate this.

XFCE 4.18
All good here, but since 1 day ago, when I switched to Testing brach, under cursor things at side menu blinks.

That hapens at Nemo, Evince etc.

Same in unstable, thunar left side "Geräte", not for browser ff-developer.

But boot-time :smiley:

Same on my old medion without nvidia.

yeah - boot time got amazing:

hk@hk-01:[~]$ systemd-analyze 
Startup finished in 3.953s (firmware) + 27.479s (loader) + 7.972s (kernel) + 1.602s (userspace) = 41.007s
graphical.target reached after 1.258s in userspace

Concidering this is on a full encrypted system which uses a shi.. very many itterations on the Key ^^ I am really happy with way under a minute.

So, On bios machine with GPT table on a ssd (with ef02 flag partition for bootloader) and no DM (auto connect on TTY), Arch and a old Manjaro from 0.8.2 on an other tired Hdd, no problem to boot.
Here is a compare Before/after:

Startup finished in 2.382s (kernel) + 5.911s (userspace) = 8.294s
graphical.target reached after 2.287s in userspace
Startup finished in 2.223s (kernel) + 2.769s (userspace) = 4.993s

Short gain but it looks ok for me.

I can't boot since trying to switch to smooth-bootup. I posted my issue in the mentioned thread.

Updated without problem, since my laptop only have intel graphic :grin:

on nvidia (bumblebee)

This game no longer works (same problem again ) [Testing Update] 2018-08-16 - Kernels (L1TF), Firefox, Mate, Virtualbox

meanwhile other games like Borderlands and csgo works fine, why only that game gives me trouble once in a while? lol

EDIT:
However, it is quite convenient (for temperature monitoring purpose). I just hope it won't impact battery life.

Yes, we changed one file and removed Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes" from nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf. However, changes to bumblebee should have fixed that.

This is a known issue with theme. You can try to switch to another one. Which theme do you currently use?

Adapta-Eta, from adapta-gtk-theme.

I have Arc Theme also here, but there isn't a "hoover" efect at Arc.

I have a question - how can I suppress the oem logo show after grub? as of now I am asked to enter luks password (with the prompt overlaying the oem screen) - than grub (which i like to show) - and than it shows the OEM logo again - until cryptmapper reports clear... i rather not have the logo at all.

Is there a boot parameter to suppress the logo?
