This time I decided to save my documents and files and to install Manjaro Linux KDE in the fresh way! I have to notice first at all... in my two previus fresh installations Thus had worked well (I mean previous Manjaro Linux releases such as 0.8.3)!!! This time I taken it as first choice... but it fails twice to install grub with UEFI system and gave me a broken system and something else wrong. Even trying to restore Grub from the Live media errors on errors. The second time I met same and others errors from Thus. So I tried Calamares for my first time... and... surprise... everythings got very well!! Thus I think Calamares is to go at first choice in the Installation choices in Manjaro Welcome!!!

Now I'm re-configuring my ManjaroLinux machine as well I like it... and everything is going fine!!!

To the attention of Philm.
No issue from the present update (Manjaro-KDE and OpenRC 15.09 to 15.12). Anyhow, I have a persistent problem with all Manjaro releases. In my PC (ASUS motherboard, i7, 16GB ram) I have four SCSI disks, and obviously many Linux distributions scattered among them. I was forced to abandon the boot from Manjaro (i.e., grub-install /dev/sda) because every time I need to update grub2 (with os-prober) the action is completed very very slowly (sometimes 8-10 minutes), while with Gentoo or CentOS it requires no more than 1 and a half minute. All disks are GPT and there is no Windows instance. What could be an exit way to resolve the problem? Thanks.

No problem with current Kernel: 4.1.15-1-MANJARO x86_64, but with kernels 4.2.8-1 or 4.3.3-2 it drops the wireless connection. It can see the USB WiFi, Card-2: Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express), driver: ath9k bus-ID: 04:00.0, but it cannot connect to it.

Thanks

I just tried the live iso on virtual box and there are some artifacts while loading the desktop with both kde and xfce (and free/non-free). In kde I can't see the welcome window neither folders/windows and if I click the taskbar it'll disappear (i can still click the button and the menu will appear). In xfce this is not happening, just the artifacts while loading.

It could be a problem from my computer, i'm using free drivers or maybe a malfunctioning configuration, i've been messing a lot with configs and stuff lately and it's acting odd (some instability, etc). I'm planing on reinstall using some 15.12 community edition.

There is no way to do a fresh install of Manjaro kde 15.12 on a new Intel Skylake pc. Ubuntu works, Manjaro not.

Here is my bad experience explained:

did you try to deactivate the 3d acceleration in virtualbox settings, I got a lot of problem when it's enabled.

I had to downgrade virtualbox to verion 5.0.10-3, since the new version 5.0.12-1 fails to start my virtual machine with the following error:

Code: [Select]
General failure - DON'T USE THIS!!!. (VERR_GENERAL_FAILURE).

check if you have kcm-msm package installed

Thank you for your help. That did the trick!

Hi all,

I never got many issues with Manjaro updates (thanks a lot for all the work you put on it by the way), but today I got into a big problem. I am new to Manjaro, so I have no idea what it could be. After the update, the system restarts into a white screen (no mouse) insteade of the login screen (I use the plasma version only). I have tried looking around for solutions, but any insight on where this could be coming from would be greatly appreciated. I use and Asus ux32v (intel/nvidia graphics).

Thank you very much,

@Manjaro-newbi, would you consider creating a separate topic in KDE section of the forum? (Be aware of the timeout error bug which comes after you send a newly created topic, simply close the tab of the browser. Your topic will be posted desite the error message.)
In the new topic provide some system info like inxi -f and a copy of some logfiles like from /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Best you boot with a live USB and copy the log files from the hard drive to post it on the forum.

I had to reconfigure kwallet.  Also kmail was set to open at startup.  Instead of opening kmail a new compose kmail window would open.  I removed it from auto startup and load it manually as a work around for now.
