Gnome 3.32: Two extensions removed from our repos.

We have now dropped two packages that shipped further extensions for Gnome: gnome-shell-extensions-topicons-plus-huttli and gnome-shell-extensions-taskbar. We gained’t keep Topicons Plus and Taskbar anymore.

Those extensions usually are not in lively improvement anymore and should not work properly (or not work at all) on Gnome Three.32. Notably, it has been reported that using Topicons Plus on Gnome Three.32 might leads to very excessive CPU utilization.

We strongly advocate you to disable those extensions if they are enabled (Tweaks > Extensions) and take away these packages together with your favorite package deal manager. To stop potential problems with the subsequent model of Gnome, you might do these steps (or at the least the primary one) earlier than upgrading your system.

Gnome 3.32: Numerous problems

There’s presently several problems with Gnome 3.32. Here is what we all know thus far.

1. Risk of damaged extensions
Broken extensions is something to anticipate when transitioning between main variations of Gnome, particularly in case you are utilizing extensions that aren’t shipped by default on Manjaro Gnome. When you’ve got a broken extension taken from some other place than Manjaro official repositories, you’ll have to contact the maintainer on the source you’ve got taken the extension from to get extra help. You might also need to report the problem to the developer(s) of the extension (if not the same individual/group).

It is attainable that extensions grow to be so broken on Gnome 3.32 that it makes Gnome Shell crash utterly when making an attempt to log in, thus making Gnome utterly unusable. For example, we have now a report of such concern with a third-party extension (that doesn’t come from Manjaro’s official repositories) referred to as Extensions.

To lower the danger of breakage (particularly if operating Gnome extensions that doesn’t come from Manjaro official repositories) and make the upgrade smoother, you possibly can disable all Gnome extensions (Tweaks > Extensions) before upgrading your system, then enable them one after the other solely after being logged in a totally new session on Gnome Three.32.

2. Utilizing world clocks can break Gnome Shell utterly
When you have configured world clocks in Gnome, it might make Gnome Shell segfaults and crashes when making an attempt to log in for a graphical session, making Gnome unusable. If it occurs, you will want to reset your parameters for world clocks with the next command (do it in TTY): dbus-launch gsettings reset org.gnome.clocks world-clocks.
See this Arch Linux thread and this ticket from upstream.

Three. Gnome Shell might crash utterly when resuming from sleep in case you use Wayland
In case you are using Wayland (as an alternative of X.org), Gnome Shell might crash when resuming from sleep. Upstream is aware of this challenge. As a workaround, chances are you’ll use X.org as an alternative of Wayland for now.

4. Miscellaneous
Some packages don’t get targeted after being launched. Reported to upstream and confirmed for distributions aside from Manjaro too.


Yaourt: Rest in peace

Yaourt has been faraway from our repositories utterly. We gained’t keep the yaourt package deal anymore, which signifies that you’ll not obtain any updates from us for this package deal. A really previous package deal named yaourt-gui-manjaro has been removed on the similar time too.

In case you are nonetheless utilizing Yaourt, we strongly encourage you to modify to an alternate like Pamac CLI (package deal: pamac-cli), Trizen (package deal: trizen), Yay (package deal: yay) or Pacaur (package deal: pacaur); and uninstall Yaourt from your system.

In addition to that, we’ve dropped help for a number of packages that trusted yaourt: allservers, pacli and pacli-jwm. Those packages has been faraway from the official repositories utterly.


vlc-nightly has been dropped

The vlc-nightly package deal, which was really helpful in a time when VLC 3 was not formally out but, has been dropped on our aspect and isn’t within the official repositories anymore. In case you nonetheless have this package deal and you need the newest secure model of VLC media player, take away vlc-nightly, then install the vlc package deal.

In any other case, you’ll be able to continue to make use of vlc-nightly from the AUR (but you’ll need to compile it yourself).

Kodi 18.1: extensions might not work properly.

Kodi 18.1 is now out there in our repositories. Since this can be a main version change, extensions for Kodi (should you use some) might stop working correctly. Builders of those extensions will need to make them suitable with Kodi 18.

If Kodi 18.1 doesn’t work properly for you and you absolutely want to use your extensions, you might use the previous kodi package deal in /var/cache/pacman/pkg as a way to downgrade Kodi to version 17.6. Please observe that it’s a short-term workaround and that the software program offered in the previous kodi package deal might cease working correctly sooner or later too. You should not hold the downgrade ceaselessly.

To switch dbus with dbus-x11 package deal, simply install dbus-x11 together with your favourite package deal manager: dbus will probably be replaced by dbus-x11.
