[Testing Update] 2019-03-14 - Kernels, Plasma, Deepin, Pamac, Python, Ruby

It not even on Arch yet (for the most part).

ugh, that looks messy. Going to wait a few days :sweat_smile:

Pamac gtk works perfectly fine on Qt desktops like KDE, as well as it does in gtk desktops, Pamac Qt is a pointless exercise. The only thing it will achieve is buggy inconsistency.

I don't see the point either since there are some other GTK based apps installed on Manjaro-KDE already like Firefox.

Maybe just work on better integration (theme, XDG, dpi etc) instead?

Manjaro Cinnamon here.

Did the upgrade with Pamac GUI (GTK, of course). It did the transition from pamac to the three packages (-common, -cli and -gtk) correctly. No problem during upgrade and no early apparent regressions so far on both systems. If I notice something, I'll make another post.

Hum, pamac-gtk 7.3.4-5? Not 7.3.5-1?

Perhaps it had just been packaged a bit before 7.3.5 was officially released.


Additional packages that could potentially be removed from repos: Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

Spring cleanup time!


I hate to say it (I will look like I spit on LordTermor works here, which is not my intent), but I kinda agree in a way. I hate Octopi (I think it offers a really clunky workflow), but I'm not sure having Pamac made in QT for the sake of having a package manager made in QT will really be that beneficial for Manjaro in the end.

Perhaps it would have been more beneficial to improve what we already had: fixing bugs, maintaining it with incoming versions of libraries, adding additional features (more likely small convenient features, it is pretty mature now), perhaps make it less fragile during upgrades if we happens to find weaknesses (assuming Pamac has a share of responsibility in it)?

Anyway, as said above, it is not like there's already GTK3 software in Manjaro KDE already (hum, Firefox, Thunderbird, Gimp to begin with). Outside of very few (a bit insane?) people, the majority of us has both GTK and QT software on their system (MSM is made in QT btw).


A lot of components of Gnome are still in version 3.30, and some very core components of the desktop environment are still in 3.30 like Gnome desktop and Gnome Settings daemon.

For the crash in Gnome Settings, it is most likely because you also have glib2 2.60.0, like last time. It is a known issue. I'm pretty sure (or, I hope?) that it will be fixed with more updates for Gnome software.

@philm This is a thing to keep an eye on. If Gnome Settings still bugs with glib2 2.60.0, we might have to downgrade glib2 to 2.58.3 again for Stable (if downgrading doesn't introduce problems in itself).

Actually, I noticed something that I haven't though of when I first reported my experience.

Don't be surprised if your configuration in Pamac get reset to default completely. Because the pamac package get replaced, the old pamac package get removed, so a .pacsave file is generated, as said in the output.

Checking available disk space...
Removing pamac (7.3.4-2)...
/etc/pamac.conf installed as /etc/pamac.conf.pacsave.
Upgrading glib2 (2.58.3-1 -> 2.60.0-1)...

Of course, by reading the info given by the package manager, it is not that much of a surprise, but there will surely be people who will say "Pamac settings got reset in the upgrade, what do I do, how do I restore my old config."

Yeah i saw that roll by as i watched the update progress, so once it finished, before rebooting, i opened two Kates side by side, with one version in each, saw all the resets, re-edited my real file, deleted the .pacsave. All good.

There is an issue about this already reported on arch. It as a result of glib2 v2.60 https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61974?project=1&string=glib2

Yup, but it will definitely be asked later.

I wrote some information in the Wiki post, ready to be copy-pasted in the announcement thread when it will it Stable.

Oh, I missed out. :sob:

Seriously though, it might be worth refining the wikipost since the .pacsave will not be generated for everyone. Pamac was replaced for me by pamac-common, pamac-cli and pamac-gtk.

(Although I did find an old grub.pacnew which I had forgotten to delete/rename, so efforts weren't wasted. :slightly_smiling_face:)

Thanks, my aur in pamac was reset to off which means it would not tell me when my google-chrome was due to be upgraded.

I feel dirty just reading that.

All was OK besides pamac settings reset. I have some AUR packages (about 5 to 10) and downgrade was on before.

Not a big deal, but annoying.

Pamac v7.3.5-1 should restore the old config just fine.

All three of my machines upgraded fine in tty, XFCE, KDE, Gnome. I don't use GUIs for package/system maintenance so I cannot speak on the pamac stuff. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I'll test this and report as soon as pamac 7.3.5 will be officially available.

vm xfce - ok

yes pamac config got reset to default.
Pls tell me why I need to save old config of pamac and how config reset will affect on my aur programs? All I see now is that I need to go to setting and set all as it were before.

Asking that to knew what to do with my main system when it comes to "stable" update.

Thnx in advance, I'm newB)y.

Do you mean this?

Same issue here

This config reset will deactivate your access to AUR. Nothing more, but annoying if you want to manage some AUR packages.

You'll have to activate once again AUR option. This is all.
