Try this solution: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Package_signing#Cannot_import_keys

Disabling signature checking would work, but I don't want that. So I created a new iso with manjaro building and everything is fine. It was a fresh installation anyway.

@Maycne Sonahoz: please try Pale Moon 26 for once. It is based on Firefox but uses its own engine.

I already tried it. There are a few Firefox addons i like that aren't compatible with it, so i came back.

All my Manjaro machines updated without issue.

Kernel 4.4 gives me issues with waking from suspend on the AMD laptop (Acer Aspire V5), especially when disconnecting power before opening the lid.
(gives only cursor and a black screen. session can't resume and is lost).
Kernel 4.1 works fine, though, so I'm staying with that.

Apropos kernels, could we please have the (LTS/SES) indicators back in the available kernels list in the announcements?
Not everyone knows where to look for information on those.


Have Fun! ^-^

While I may not always have the correct solution, my input could lead you in the right direction...
If you don't know what a command does, then type 'man <command>' or '<command> --help' to find out.

Upgrade went smoothly in my old Dell Quadcore (ATI graphics).

Tried to install on my new Nuc6i5 (Intel Iris Graphics 540). Found out the hard way, that the Live USB Stick only uses Kernel 4.1 and it will just not run... Solved the issue with the extra kernel paramter i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 and than changed to kernel 4.4.

Graphics do work now but VERY sloppy (not well usable on my 4k screen).
Also tried "sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-intel", but didn't change the result.

What can I do about better Skylake support?

Thx, Simon

PS: On my "old" NUC with Iris 5000 graphics, video is responsive and fast and without any issues.

I updated a second laptop with no problems what so ever,
I also upgraded my kernel on my first laptop from 43 to 44 with no problems,
both laptops updated and 1 kernel upgrade.

Actually I have not had any problems with any manjaro updates in the last few months,
Thanks for the work you guys do, I can say without any shadow of doubt this is the best OS I've ever used, weather it be linux or windows.

Hey guys sorry for the dumb question but I just came home from 2 weeks holidays and updated system using the system udate. When i went to update Grub (because dual booting windows) i noticed that the update installed Linux Kernel 4.1.16 when the current version i am running is 4.4.0-4. How did this happen and did i miss doing something? I can't remember how i got to 4.4.0?

That 4.1 got updated means that this kernel is still installed. Very likely you have both 4.1 and 4.4 installed.
Which one you are actually using you can decide with every fresh boot in the grub-screen selection :)
manjaro is addictive ::)
* manjaro-i3  * manjaro-cinnamon  * manjaro-deepin

I use Grub Customizer and yeah i now have Windows, Linux 4.5, Linux 4.4 and Linux 4.1 other then just removing from the boot screen should i Uninstall the 4.1?
Also how would one do that? Found the wiki.
I had to use terminal to install 4.5-RC3 is this correct or is there a tab or screen i missed for updating to new Kernels automatically?
Sorry i'm new at all this and i'm trying to get my head around using Pacman instead of Apt-get.

You can install/unistall kernel easily through manjaro-settings-manager.

Strange.
Manjaro-settings-manager comes preinstalled on every manjaro distro and is one of the most notable points of manjaro.
What desktop enviroment are you using?
Anyway, you can install it via pamac, octopi or with the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S manjaro-settings-manager

That is unless your using the KDE Edition, in that case this would be integrated into Plasma's system settings.
For the KDE Edition, the package would be kcm-msm not manjaro-settings-manager:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S kcm-msm

I'm using the Cinnamon version does that make a difference?  But it definitely is not on the settings page.

On cinnamon you can find it in the menu/preferences.
If it's not there then try to install it as I said above with the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S manjaro-settings-manager
