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

With this we updated most of our kernels, openrc stack, openssl, Calamares, Pamac, Lumina-Desktop, Cinnamon and Steam. We also have now an updated toolchain based on gcc6, libre-office 5.0.6 and regular rebuilds due pacman-hooks.

Archlinux upstream fixes are now from: Sun May 8 12:31:31 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

Troubleshoots

GTK3

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.

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
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
For further details read also this.

Arc-Dark theme had a little hiccup after this update. Xfce panel Window Buttons text changed to black, making it impossible to read them. Got around this by uninstalling arc-themes package from official repos and instead installing gtk-theme-arc from AUR as a replacement. It was only the Arc-Dark theme that was affected, Arc and Arc-Darker did not have the issue.
Disclaimer, I am an Linux noob. Any advice I give should be taken in light of such.

AUR: can't update  lxqt-admin (ver 0.10.0-2)  for its GPG key error

Do we need that AUR based package for lxqt spin? Or can I just del it for good?
I'd rather have 0 number of AUR packages in my distro. (ok, except oracle's java)

Another very smooth (if but again VERY large) update.
Large as in almost, but not quite 900MB. These last several updates have all pretty much been kind of "huge".
But, hey cannot truly complain as they have all been smooth as silk.

Major kudos to the devs.
Extraordinary work.
