No issues at all, as per usual. I continue to be amazed at how flawlessly (for me, with an older PC and vanilla KDE install) every last thing works under Manjaro. I run several other distros for fun and education (I fix Windows PC's for money, and have been able to convince more and more people to at least try Linux due to their hatred of 10 - it's helpful to know what to recommend and install for these folks) and have occasional issues with some of them, often the big players (Ubuntu, Mint). Manjaro, and Arch itself for that matter, never lets me down! Y'all should be very proud of your excellent work.

Everything went smooth except for an error message from manjaro-gnome-settings update:

Code: [Select]

Can't complete the upgrade with message:

conflicting files:

python2-unidecode: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/unidecode/util.pyc already exists in filesystem

Any advice?

EDIT: Solved this - In my case python2-unidecode depended on by beets. Removed beets and dependencies, removed offended files and reinstalled beets

I will install this update in the evening IST. By the way, why don't we have the poll like we use to for each updates thread?
I think it was a really good way to understand the smoothness of an update. It can help people to be extra careful if a lot of people are reporting issues after updating the system.

Am I the only one which still have the problem with pamac (freezes on "updating multilib" when it's refreshing repos db and click on "details") even after the upgrade of pamac to 3.2.1?
I take the following message at the start:

Code: [Select]
Refreshing mirrors list...
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

...then the process seems to be going normally and finally freezes on "multilib"

The problem has described here:

Hi,

After the update plank has started to behave unusually. I cannot change any settings, I tried configuring it by editing the "settings" file in .config/plank/dock1 but still nothing. Also tried reinstalling plank, but that didnt help either. The only way I can configure plank is by editing the settings file, because I had removed the plank dock item from appearing in the plank. And now I cannot add it back, because when I change DockItem=true it does not reflect any change. When I remove plank through pacman -Rsn and then reinstall it, plank does not show its default, out of the box configuration. Can anyone help me with this please?

Thanks!

Whit the new release Plank has completely removed the Plank button, you will never get it back even if you modified the setting file, instead you can access the Plank configuration screen by using Ctrl+RightClick on the Plank.
