Hello community,

here is another Testing Update for you:


Still stuck with Windows software? We got you covered! Get your InfinityBook with CrossOver!

Some feature-updates:

  • Some of our Kernels got updated
  • Brave browser got renewed
  • Calamares is now at 3.2.22
  • Octopi got some fixes added
  • Flatpak is at 1.7.2
  • The usual upstream updates including Python

If you like following latest Plasma development you may also like to check out our current version of manjaro-kde-dev, which we build on a regular basis against kde-git master packages. Also check out our current 19.0.2 ISOs and give us the needed feedback. You might also want to give our latest spin with NX-Desktop a try ...

As always we appreciate your input and feedback for the updates.


Upstream notice

Arch updated their default compression to zstd. We adopted to the same standard. More and more packages will have the zst extension from now on. If you get for what ever reason an error with ZSTD not supported as archive format you can do this:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S pacman-static
sudo pacman-static -Syyu

Pamac stuck at "Preparing..."

Users have reported issues with the recent release candidate of Pamac 9.4.0 when initiating transactions, being stuck at "Preparing..." without being able to cancel the transaction and quit Pamac normally.

For now, it is recommended to use pacman to do package management until this issue is solved and Pamac become usable again. Please test out upcoming updates for Pamac to see if the issue becomes solved or not.

If you are stuck in "Preparing...", you will have to manually kill the pamac-managerprocess.

khotkeys identified as an orphaned package

You can remove that package, but might loose some functionality with your key-bindings. We made it now optional to be installed.

More seriously, so far, people that reported to have such issue noticed that the problem goes away at next boot.


Installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency of a package

If you run into an issue because of xorgproto please DON'T follow the Arch suggestion as Manjaro uses the xorgproto-transfer package to make this automatic. If you have an issue, please report and wait for an update from us!

AUR Rebuilds required after updating python 3.7 to 3.8

Packages that depend on python from the AUR will need to be rebuilt after everything else has been updated. You can rebuild some of them with the following:

sudo pacman -S --needed --noconfirm expac yay
yay -S --rebuildtree $(pacman -Qmq $(expac %N python))

You can find other packages that need to be rebuilt by looking at the folders/files in

/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/

To find out what package owns a folder/file in that, you can use the following:

pacman -Qo folder_or_filename

If no package owns a file, it can probably be ignored.

xfce4-terminal / guake / gnome-terminal does not open

There is an issue with vte3 0.58.1-1 on kernels 4.4 and 4.9.


Replace linux52 with community/linux-latest ?

linux52 is EOL and has been removed from the repositories. It will be replaced by a metapackage which will from now on keep you on a maintained kernel.

If you want to keep the old kernel and modules then include them in your pacman.conf's IgnorePkg.

Something is wrong with intel-media-driver on my machine, watching a 1080p60fps stream from twitch via: streamlink %u 1080p,1080p60 --player="mpv --hwdec=auto"
(replace %u with url)
I'm at 10% cpu on 19.4.0.r-1 vs 50% cpu on 20.1.1-1

$ inxi -CG
CPU:       Topology: Quad Core model: Intel Core i5-6300HQ bits: 64 type: MCP L2 cache: 6144 KiB 
           Speed: 900 MHz min/max: 800/3200 MHz Core speeds (MHz): 1: 900 2: 900 3: 900 4: 900

           Device-2: NVIDIA GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M] driver: N/A 
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.8 driver: modesetting resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 530 (SKL GT2) v: 4.6 Mesa 20.0.4

EDIT:
In --hwdec=auto mode mpv select vaapi-copy, forcing vaapi via --hwdec=vaapi make cpu go to 15/20% on both version of intel-media-driver.
So it's something between intel-media-driver 20.1.1-1 and mpv's --hwdec=vaapi-copy

NB
Best use case is still vaapi-copy with intel-media-driver 19.4.0.r-1.

@philm are there any plans for the NX-Desktop? I think it's a pretty nice project, will there an official flavor or an updated iso? The current iso seems very outdated.

No issues with thiis update.

ah, this is why my notifications are suddenly light-colored boxes? okay, swtiching to smoke theme (unless this is safe to downgrade)

Hi,
my XFCE desktop icons lost their pre-view.

I tried it a couple of days ago with the existing ISO. It still installed fine and updated okay using the pacman-static shuffle in the testing announcement post above.

One thing that did slightly mess with it was the Plasma 5.18 update. The SDDM lost it's proper NX look but that was easily resolved.

I might need to update the ISO at some point.

I can also confirm this with image/video thumbnails on the desktop as well. In thunar view, they display normally. I use arc theme/icons throughout. Don't know if it's recent or not since I like a clean desktop.

I'd have to agree, at least for the KDE iso. Just did a fresh install for a friend from the latest testing build iso and 568 updates needed after the install.

This happend some time ago too.
Someone in the last +20 Testing Threads, posted a small command to solve it. I have to look for it..again (;


ah i've found it

I noticed a change in the volume pop-up notification. It used to be gray, now it's white:

Istantanea_2020-04-12_01-33-24

I use Matcha-sea.

I don't know if it's a bug in the latest version of Matcha or if the theme has changed. I preferred to have the gray notification, because this one is really hard to read at times.

EDIT: downgrading Matcha doesn't solve the issue. So it must be something else.

@schinfo @philm
about linux 57.rc1 , no boot on EFI harware , now fixed
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-5.7-rc1-Post-EFI-Fixed

Thanks for the info - I'll see what happens with rc2 and patch it if needed.

No need to patch, rc2 will have fixes as Linus has already merged them.
Checked myself with my daily-build.
