Updated Wallpapers from Kyria and Jhuraya where not installed

Hi Team,

Firstly thank you for the Kyria update. I'm using the xfce (minimal from architect iso) edition.
I have observed that, the latest wallpapers for Kyria and Jhuraya were not installed on my system after the update.

In the /usr/share/backgrounds, I only have the "illyria-default" and "illyria-default-lockscreen" wallpapers. Any idea, why new wallpapers were not added to my system. Or if I have to manually install any specific package for the same.

install wallpapers-juhraya

there isn't one for Kyria yet as far as I'm aware. The new KDE wallpaper is part of the Breath2 theme set. you can install it if you like Breath2-wallpaper

Thanks for replay :slight_smile:

This will install Jhuraya wallpapers, but shouldn't it be installed by default with Jhuraya updates (if this is official package and part of the release)?

As for Kyria if I remember correctly, during RC1 and RC2 devs mentioned having new wallpapers along with Matcha Themes. That is why I'm a bit confused.

And just to be sure, I hope the Matcha they mentioned is the one installed in my system:

no idea about new matcha wallpapers, please ask in that announcement thread by replying to the first post quoting that particular snippet of information. updating between releases doesn't draw in new packages because a lot of users would start complaining about unwanted bloat if that happened. it's always up to the end user to decide what new stuff to add. the rolling aspect to updates is more the core features and applications you already installed, tweaks to the look and any new features created by manjaro developers for a new release are always optional.

Ok. I'll ask in the announcement thread.

I thought, since they had mentioned it in the update list, they would have included it. But what you say is true and is the most important aspect of linux and rolling release distros.

Thanks. Have a good day.

New packages - added to repo and used with a release - is not installed in an automated manner.

A Manjaro update never installs new packages unless it is a dependency of an existing package.

Ok. That clears why Jhuraya wallpaper package was not installed.

Thanks.
