Official Manjaro forum thread: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=29340.0

Seems Desktop Cube Animation doesn’t work anymore in OpenGL 2.0.
Had 600msec. set so when I spin my mouse wheel it would rotate in noticeable seen delay.
Now is instantaneous switching no matter what I set it for.
Desktop Cube Animation doesn’t seem to work with Compositor set at OpenGL 2.0 animation speed also set in the middle.
But works fine if I set to OpenGL 3.1

Interesting.
Did you also change the compositors overall speed?
[attachment=823]

Nevermind went back and tried switching compositor from 3.1 to 2.0 and change animation speed.
Now for some reason working again on 2.0 tho know I tried that slider before hit apply and didn’t do anything.

What did You Do to my system to get it working again? :s

I know you ssh’ed or something and did something to it! :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m Losing My Mind! :huh:

So nevermind and now I go to take my Meds again! :smiley:

After this update I have problem logging in. The login window comes up but
cannot login. Some times I can login as a different user (without sudo previlage).
Or some times if I wait for a long time after the login screen comes up, logging
becomes possible. Any solution?

thanks in advance

Did you press Y at all the prompts to replace packages, etc.?

New update available: http://forums.netrunner.com/showthread.php?tid=23054

Yes. Unless I have pressed some other key inadvertently. Anyway I will try the latest updates and see if that resolves
the problem. Shall report back after that.

Thanks

Also before running an update, you might want to check to be sure the mirror you download from is up to date.
http://repo.manjaro.org/

The problem still persists even after the latest update. I am able to login only
after several attempts, some times after a reboot.

here is my pacman.conf

/etc/pacman.conf

[code]#

See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

GENERAL OPTIONS

[options]

The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.

If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.

#RootDir = /
#DBPath = /var/lib/pacman/
CacheDir = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
HoldPkg = pacman glibc

If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first

SyncFirst = manjaro-system
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -C - -f %u > %o
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u

Pacman won’t upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup

#NoUpgrade =
#NoExtract =

Misc options

#UseSyslog
#Color
#TotalDownload

We cannot check disk space from within a chroot environment

By default, pacman accepts packages signed by keys that its local keyring

trusts (see pacman-key and its man page), as well as unsigned packages.

SigLevel = Required DatabaseOptional
LocalFileSigLevel = Optional
#RemoteFileSigLevel = Required

NOTE: You must run pacman-key --init before first using pacman; the local

keyring can then be populated with the keys of all official Manjaro Linux

packagers with pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro.

REPOSITORIES

- can be defined here or included from another file

- pacman will search repositories in the order defined here

- local/custom mirrors can be added here or in separate files

- repositories listed first will take precedence when packages

have identical names, regardless of version number

- URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo

- URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture

Repository entries are of the format:

[repo-name]

Server = ServerName

Include = IncludePath

The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and

uncommented to enable the repo.

The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the

repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately

after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,

enable the multilib repositories as required here.

I have no idea from which of these mirrors the download takes place. However
suso pacman -Sy shows that my system is upto date (after the update of 29th).
Could it be an issue with some configuration files ? Btw, I can login without
problem through a virtual console (but not into an xsession).

thanks .

That’s not what I meant by mirrors, that file is fine, I gave you the link that shows the various Manjaro mirrors and their current states. Anyway, try running the following to optimize mirror order and to force the server to refresh regardless of it’s reported state.

sudo pacman-mirrors -g
sudo pacman -Syyu

Also check your .xsession-errors file for a clue as to what might be happening.

This is what I get when I run sudo pacman -Syyu' after runningsudo pacman-mirrors -g’

So there seems to be no problem with the upgrade

If I logout of a running session and try to login again as soon as the login windom appears ,it fails
and the .xsession-errors file will be like

However If I wait a few minutes I can login again and the .xsession file will then be like

It seems like if I allow enough time between the appearance of login screen and loggin in, I could successfully
login. It did not use to be like this earlier

again thanks a lot for spending time on this.

Have you edited any startup files in your home directory?
.bashrc
.xinitrc
etc.

No. further this problem of being unable to login sometimes exists for all users
not just one user. So it may be some systemwide settings corrupted.

thanks

Since I’m not able to reproduce this issue, it has to be something local to your system.

PS. Please use code boxes and not quote boxes, especially for long strings of data. Long posts like that can get flagged as spam.

Thanks for spending time on this. I can live with the problem for the time being until I figure
out what I have messed with or a new ISO comes out.

Could it possibly be this issue your experiencing?
https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=29830.0;topicseen

If not, then these are both very odd issues that most users don’t seem to be experiencing.

I will give that a try. it could be an sddm problem.

thanks

Update: This weekend I began experiencing this issue as well, it looks like only the breeze and breeze based SDDM themes are effected, changing to one of the themes that comes with SDDM fixes this issue.

There is now a bug report for the Breeze SDDM theme issue here:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=358171

I’ve been having exactly the same problem. I’ve just been reading this thread, as I have nothing new to add. However, you needed to know it isn’t just him.

I can usually get it to login after reboot and one failed attempt. It doesn’t matter if I reboot after the last session or when.
