[Testing Update] 2020-05-01 - Kernels, Mesa 20.0.6, Gnome 3.36.2, Pamac 9.5beta, AMDVLK 20.Q2.2

Todays updates installed, rebooted and so far all seems good. Nice job again.

Everything seems to be working, also getting from login to desktop seems fater on KDE. Thanks for the update.

Downgraded to the GUFW version from stable on stable-staging

After locking the screen, I was experiencing graphical corruption in a Plasma Xorg session. I tried to take a screenshot, but it appeared normal. The glitches stopped after I followed the instructions (posted below) from the KDE forum to disable and restart the compositor. I believe it is a regression due to this update because it never happened before.

How to disable and restart the compositor in Plasma Xorg session:

qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor suspend
qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor resume

I tried this as well, unfortunately, it did not work. For me still the only option is to downgrade the manjaro-kde-settings package.

update went smooth

I don't experience any issues with lockscreen (maybe it's only on intel? ), but to suspend and resume the compositor, you can also use alt+shift+f12 :slight_smile:

The corruption first happened on the lock screen, but it continued after unlocking, until I suspended and resumed the compositor.

I just checked the list of updates. The manjaro-kde-settings was not even included in this update

Maybe it was pushed in between? According to the package name "manjaro-kde-settings-20200430-1" it was not pushed with the update from the 29th April. I got it with this update, even if it is not listed as part of it. Package which is working for me is from 20200424.

Try to downgrade it on your machine and you will see if it is the culprit or not.

I can't speak to your system but I got that by itself.

Consider adding drawing as a preinstalled app. I've been missing something simple like paint where I could crop my screenshots or highlight things. It's really lightweight and does it's job.
