We are happy to announce our seventeenth update of Manjaro 15.12 (Capella)!

With this we updated Gnome and GTK to 3.20. This will break most of the themes, which will be fixed if and when their developers decide to update them. Some GTK 3.20-compliant themes are ready now - see further down this post.

It is recommended to use Adwaita or any theme which is already compatible with the new CSS style of Gnome. Most of the work is now going into our new default theme, Vertex-Maia.

So what changed so far:

 - some of our kernels got a new point-release
 - updated JDK8, Virtualbox and profile settings of our Manjaro editions
 - plasma framework is now at 5.21
 - plasma desktop is now at 5.6.3
 - KDE apps at 16.04
 - haskell and python updates
 - a lot of rebuilds due the gtk3 update
 - libreoffice is now at 5.1.2
 - firefox, thunderbird and calligra got updated
 - continues work on vulkan support
 - some updates to lib32 repository



Guillaume and Dustin worked together to get Gnome headerbar working with pamac. This gives pamac a new look and feel. Also additional improvements got added to our latest preview version of pamac. Install it via pamac-dev.

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Tue Apr 26 19:46:47 CEST 2016.

It is always good to check for updated packages, even we don't notify you about them. As usual people using our testing branch will help us to get snaps over to our stable branch almost smoothly. For notifications on daily bases please take a look at our mailing list:

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

The new default Manjaro GTK theme, which is GTK 3.20 compatible, is Vertex-Maia

You can install it with:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Sy vertex-maia-themes vertex-maia-icon-theme xcursor-maia
Then select it in your environment's appearance/theme settings area.



Troubleshoots

ufw

If you have issues with ufw not working anymore, you have to copy your custom rules to a different folder. Do it like this:

Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /usr/lib/ufw/user.rules.pacsave /etc/ufw/user.rules
sudo cp -v /usr/lib/ufw/user6.rules.pacsave /etc/ufw/user6.rules

steam

Steam might not work due incompatiblity of libgpg. You my try followed command to "fix" it:

Code: [Select]
find ~/.steam/root/ -name "libgpg-error.so*" -print -delete

The installation went through fine with ~200 packages. Here's the minor issues I encountered:

  • rofi changed its configuration syntax and hence the theme will be broken. Just look it up on the man page / website.
  • I use termite and used the CSS selector VteTerminal to set padding. With the VTE update, the selector is now vte-terminal.

Will update the list as I go along. Thanks for your work!

@Mozon: pamac uses gtk3. Your theme doesn't support version 3.20. Please use another one which supports it.

Hi,

I'm unable to update. I got the updates notification on pamac and after hitting apply, I got some archlinux key error, so I canceled the updates and ran -

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S manjaro-keyring archlinux-keyring
sudo pacman -Suu
sudo pacman -Syyu

but the updates had vanished and I got the "there is nothing to do message", so I ran pacman-mirrors -g but still no updates. Can anyone help me with this?

There are no logs of the error in pamac or pacman log, and I don't know where else I could look if you need to see what the error was exactly.

Thanks with this!

On Manjaro Gnome here. Every single update has disabled Steam. But this time, the "purge libraries" button didn't work. How can I get it to open? It's the same libGL errors as last time:

$ steam

Wow! HUGE update  :o . Apart from needing to change theme, as mentioned, everything is working fine. Watching the terminal was like watching a movie! 196 upgraded packages, great job Manjaro Team, many thanks for all the work  ;D

The GTK3 update (to 3.20) broke the default Numix-Manjaro XFCE theme for me, similar I assume to what others are reporting. Pcmanfm was a real mess. Downgrading GTK3 to 3.18.9-1 (which is what I had before the upgrade) and rebooting fixed the theme and the many affected applications displayed properly again.

The only problem I noticed with the GTK3 downgrade is that all the pamac package managing applications would immediately crash (with a libvte error). So I downgraded the vte3 and vte-common packages to version 0.42.5-1 (which is what they were before the upgrade) and that seemed to solve the problem. Pamac updater and package manager start fine now.

Edit: gtkmm3 also had to be downgraded for pavucontrol.

I'll wait to upgrade GTK3 until I see the new theme packages ready for upgrade as well.
