Due to ain installer scripts, users are facing few issues on September ISO. Support for caused issues with gtk applications such as thunar and plank.
- Unable to adjust display brightness
- Launching Thunar and plank takes a long time
- Lightdm greeter crashes / lags / shows error
You can try these methods to fix issues with the new ISO.
lspci to get the information about available graphics card(s) on your system, and install the appropriate drivers.
$ lspci -k | grep -P 'VGA|3D|Display'03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Picasso (rev c2)
In that case, Install
xf86-video-amdgpu package and reboot the system.
flatpak package to resolve the issue with gtk applications.
$ sudo pacman -Rnscv flatpak
This operation will also remove
pamac-all as flatpak is one of its dependencies.
You can install
pamac-aur if you want a Graphical package manager.
Due to the removal of drivers from the installed system, lightdm's webkit greeter crashes and fails to load the default theme.
Also, It's a bit slow on older machines. To fix this issue, Install
$ sudo pacman -S sddm archcraft-sddm-theme-default
Copy sddm config file, Use archcraft as the theme name
$ sudo cp /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/default.conf /etc/sddm.conf.d/default.conf
Enable sddm service and reboot the computer
$ sudo systemctl enable -f sddm-plymouth.service
All the issues above will be fixed ASAP and a new ISO will be uploaded soon.
