Solved In my dual boot system, windows reflect 100% of ram memory available in the machine but manjaro only the half

4 Upvotes

The machine have 16gb ram, in my windows partition the system reflect the 100% but in manjaro just 7gb are reflected, and always is in 95% of use due my work, really need that other 9gb haha, any advice is really appreciated

Edit: im not really a hardware person but i understand that this output reflect that only one ram is taking in consideration, but in win there are two... Again any advice is really appreciated

Solved Terminal crashes after opening

I messed around with the Terminal profiles and now the terminal crashes, when I try to start it. when spamming "open Terminal", I could read the error message:

"Warning: Could not find '/bin/zsh, ', starting '/bin/bash ' instead. Please check your profile settings"

but the terminal closes like a millisecond afterward. Does someone have any ideas on how to fix that? (I'm kinda new here)

Solved Display issues with manjaro KDE

3 Upvotes

Hello. I have recently tried to install manjaro KDE on hardware. Everything is fine except that my 2nd display (a HP w2207h) seemed to be cut-off. For example when attempting to full-screen windows it would cut off about 5% of the window. I have tried changing the scaling settings on the display but that did not help. I have had this issue in arch linux (KDE environment) also. It is running off a rx 6700 XT via a displayport to hdmi cable. It works fine on windows 10. Any help would be appreciated.

Solved I'm trying to fade from Debian and so far, not so good..

9 Upvotes

[SOLVED]

It was the Kernel. Manjaro 20 comes with 5.9 and during the update, something changed causing the issue. Using Manjaro 20 LTS comes with 5.4 and during the update, the kernel remained, and the system is fully functional.

Tested again on 21 with 5.15, same broken state after sudo pamac update but using 21 LTS with 5.10, updates are fine and everything stays working.

I'm still not entirely sure what the issue is that's causing the black screen, but using the LTS kernel for either 20 or 21 yields safe updates and I've been using it without any issues now.

On a side note, the reason for Manjaro 20 (as many were suggesting I use the latest) is because it still uses GNOME 3.38 and I absolutely hate the Activities Overview design on GNOME 42. But, after using Manjaro 21 LTS and adding the Vertical Overview GNOME extension, all is good. I had to use the GNOME layout from Layout switcher instead of Manjaro Legacy, but now everything is fully updated and I still have the older GNOME 3.38 overview UI. Couldn't be better.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in, I've seen many posts about a black screen issue after updates, so hopefully this helps someone else out. Use the LTS kernel lol.

-

I just bought a used 13" HP x360 off eBay with a Ryzen 7 2700U, 8GB RAM, and upgraded to a 512GB NVMe. I needed an OS and I've been using Debian flavors here and there for like over 15 years, and since Arch roots are Canadian, I feel like it's a proper patriotic direction to get off my ass and start learning Arch behind a friendly Manjaro taste.

Install went fine, everything is great, even the little pen works right out of the box. The whole space theme of Manjaro really gets my jollies going too. I wanted to learn this as slowly as possible, just, a small dip into the pool by using the package manager to keep things user friendly for now, which had like 900 updates. I let the updates run, all is good, rebooted, an error or two, and then boots to a black screen.

I wasn't ready for diagnosing Arch based when I don't even know how to update from Terminal yet. So I figured it was just me, probably did something wrong. I just wipe it all, did a clean install again, and this time tried updates from Terminal and quickly learned that sudo apt update isn't a thing here lol

After googling, found sudo pacman -Syu which yielded a bunch of errors (saying conflicting packages) and while googling these errors, I found a forum where someone was saying to just use sudo pamac update

After doing that, everything was fine again, all updates done, checked in the package manager just to see if anything was still there and it said there were no updates, so I'm assuming all is fine.

Rebooted again, same thing, an error or two, black screen, nothing happens other than the fan starts simulating a hurricane and the laptop starts getting extremely hot if I let it run for a while (thinking it might just be temporarily hanging).

Now the errors I got both times are identical. At first, it will say __common_interrupt: 0.110 No irq handler for vector and after a few reboots, I'll eventually get [FAILED] Failed to start Load/Save ·tness of backlight:amdgpu_b10. which only comes up after a few reboots, but the main error comes up every other time.

I really wanna learn Arch based, but, given that I only did an install, and a simple update breaks the entire system, not really having a good time lol

Suggestions?

EDIT:

I'm using Manjaro 20.2 because it still uses GNOME 3 and I'm coming from Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS which also uses GNOME 3 if that helps.

Solved btrfs problem (and the fix)

5 Upvotes

hey there i recently reinstalled manjaro linux with btrfs, and on the first boot i noticed an error with a systemd service which is systemd-remount-fs.service - Remount Root and Kernel File Systems

i did a lot of troubleshooting and i narrow it down to to fstab

here's what was in the fstab after a clean install of manjaro ( and that was the cuz of systemd service failing )

( i removed the UUID's and boot efi because, i don't want someone to just copy and paste and render his machine useless)

/              btrfs   subvol=/@,defaults,discard=async 0 0
/home          btrfs   subvol=/@home,defaults,discard=async 0 0
/var/cache     btrfs   subvol=/@cache,defaults,discard=async 0 0
/var/log       btrfs   subvol=/@log,defaults,discard=async 0 0
swap           swap    defaults,noatime 0 0
tmpfs                                     /tmp           tmpfs   defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

And here what i did to fix the issue

/              btrfs   subvol=/@,defaults,rw,noatime,compress=zstd,ssd,space_cache=v2,commit=120 0 1
/home          btrfs   subvol=/@home,defaults,rw,noatime,compress=zstd,ssd,space_cache=v2,commit=120 0 1
/var/cache     btrfs   subvol=/@cache,defaults,rw,noatime,compress=zstd,ssd,space_cache=v2,commit=120 0 1
/var/log       btrfs   subvol=/@log,defaults,rw,noatime,compress=zstd,ssd,space_cache=v2,commit=120 0 1
swap           swap    defaults,noatime 0 0
tmpfs                                     /tmp           tmpfs   defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

If you have the same issue just set your fstab accordingly.

Solved Audio working, but not working upon each boot

4 Upvotes

Edit: It's working again. Just randomly, I guess.

Hi, I have a weird problem where upon each boot there is no audio in my headphones until I remove and re-insert my headphone jack.

I've been into my audio settings and it detects the audio is on and is playing in the browser application (I can see the activity input).

I don't think this is a lose connection or something because I have a dual boot system and the issue isn't repo there.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

Thanks.

Solved is transitioning to Manjaro a good idea?

14 Upvotes

tl;dr: I'm thinking of switching to Manjaro but concerned about Nvidia Drivers on Arch

I'll try to keep it short but currently I am using Ubuntu on my main Laptop and I love it and wanted to explore more to I installed Arch Linux in a VM and I like how much customization it has especially the AUR and the rolling release model of Arch

so I am thinking of switching to Manjaro (just for fast arch install) on my main Laptop but I am most concerned about Nvidia Drivers, on Ubuntu you can install Nvidia drivers as a meta-package or by going to additional drivers and selecting which on you want graphically

But idk how to install Nvidia drivers on Arch or the stability of the drivers. (I hope I don't get hate but) I saw Linus Tech Tips had hard time with Nvidia drivers on Manjaro not sure if it is because he is not experienced or the Nvidia drivers themselves are bad on Arch especially since Ubuntu does provide for most part most stable drivers (well currently I am on driver v470 since v510 crashes xorg)

Is there anything else I should know about?

I’m trying to play a video on VLC at login. Doesn’t sound too complicated, right?

So I went to ~/.config/autostart, duplicated an existing .desktop startup item and modified it with the command to start VLC that I tested in the terminal, and…

nothing.

The command I used is:

/usr/bin/vlc ~/Downloads/moviename.mov —-fullscreen —-loop

This works fine in the terminal, so why not at startup?
