[Testing Update] 2020-04-10 - Thunderbird 68.7.0, OnlyOffice 5.5, Gnome, GTK

Hello community,

here is another Testing Update for you:


Need to have a look at several documents at once? Have two or more monitors? Now it’s your time! You can stack them together now ...

Some feature-updates:

  • Thunderbird got updated to 68.7.0
  • OnlyOffice is now at 5.5.1
  • Usual updates to Gnome and GTK

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.

Upgrading firewalld package to 0.8.1-2 requires manual intervention

Please read this announcement if you have file conflicts when trying to upgrade firewalld package to 0.8.1-2.

Firewalld requires manual intervention

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.


Weird font glitches (see screenshots below).

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-power-manager does not open / upower fails

Install kernel 4.14 or higher (4.14, 4.19, 5.2 [EOL], 5.3)

There is an issue with upower 0.99.11-1 on kernels 4.4 and 4.9.


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

Update to vte3 0.58.2-1 or install kernel 4.14 or higher (4.14, 4.19, 5.2 [EOL], 5.3)

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.


Pamac-Qt is not compatible to 9.0 API of Pamac

Pamac Qt 0.3 pre-RC: Towards the release, needs help in testing


gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons

the pkgver 19.10.1 ship with an hook to remove the capability from gnome-shell. A message is present during install but essentially you need to reboot the system to show correctly the icons in the desktop. More info here

Thanks to the developers.
Nothing to report under KDE.
Hey guys, we can see that it's the convid-19 containment that makes developers have less work outside of Manjaro. :rofl: :grin: :mask:

lucky them? not sure it makes a heck of a lot of difference as some are working exclusively on manjaro and manjaro GmbH stuff anyway

yes, so bravo to the others. :kissing:

Same here. Nothing to report on kde- plasma, works superb - on testing ofc.
Saw the post about nx spin, thought i should give it a try. Lets see..! :slight_smile:

All looks good here. not seeing any issues.

webgl stopped working in kwin_x11 , so eg, maps didn't show in any browser. Switching to plasma_wayland lets browser maps appear (e.g. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html showed text and plots but not map).
PS. This occurs only on surface-pro 2017, not desktop pc. I tried reinstalling kwin but still need wayland to see maps in firefox (or chromium). Strange.

Whats Only Office? My only Office is Libre Office :grin:

All went good running KDE system. Cool work from OnlyOffice developers, my favorite app to manage Office stuff. Thanks.

Yeah, Libre is my only, too :smiley:

No issues on stable-staging Thanks @philm and Manjaro team for the great work :slight_smile: :clap:

I'm on stable but I have this testing update and the previous one, not sure why.

Doubtful. Check your branch:

$ pacman-mirrors -G

If it says stable you're on stable and get those updates.

It says stable and I'm getting this and the previous testing one. Also tried on another machine and same.

That is the current stable update - announcements will catch up. Current difference I see between stable and testing is systemd: testing has 245.4-2 while stable stays on 244.4-1.

Ah, OK. The updates came up a while ago and I've been waiting for a stable announcement but as it wasn't coming up I looked at the testing announcements and found lots of matches (I didn't look at all the packages though) and I thought maybe something is amiss, best to let the guys know. Thanks for your input.

Thunderbird need rebuild against libffi otherwise does not launch.

[2020-04-11T11:46:27+0200] [ALPM] upgraded libffi (3.2.1-4 -> 3.3-3)

Workaround

sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/libffi.so.7 /usr/lib/libffi.so.6

Upps, my gnome thunderbird works with libffi 3.2.1-4 --> no problems launching...
As I am on testing, I upgraded libffi 3.2.1-4 to 3.3-3
Rebooting - I got a kernelpanic and found out that my live-medium worked well
so I could chkroot into my system and downgraded libffi 3.3-3 to 3.2.1-4
..
Too fast - too furious..... :innocent:

unstable vs testing.
