• Pamac 6.2.5 is coming

    Hi all pamac users!

    Pamac release 6.2.5 is coming (current release is 6.2.4).
    I already made some simple basic tests with it and they seem to work.

    So no worries mates! ;)

    (@joekamprad Couldn’t find the thread for beta software discussions you created a while ago…)

  • I’ve tested it too and indeed no worries everyone.

  • Yay!!! Can’t wait to use this new update :) . Pamac is so amazing!

  • The new Pamac 6.2.5-2 sees no difference in layout between the install and update button. So when there are updates, you have to click on the update area in Pamac to see what updates there are. It’s not a problem for me, because I update in the terminal, but just giving you the heads up.

    Not exactly sure what you mean, so here’s my understanding of how pamac operates.

    There are two programs, pamac-updater (for updates) and pamac-manager (for installs). Technically, pamac-updater is a symbolic link to pamac-manager. So they really are the same program (pamac-manager), but the program internally sees what was the name of the starting program (either pamac-manager or pamac-updater) and acts accordingly.

    Starting pamac-updater goes directly to updating view.
    Starting pamac-manager goes directly to installing view.

    And clicking pamac the tray icon goes to either updating view if there are updates, otherwise to installing view.

    That’s the thing the newer version doesn’t do anymore. I’m talking about yesterday’s 6.2.5-2 update, not the 6.2.5 update from friday. If you don’t have that behaviour, then it’s problably a fault in my system.

  • @bryanpwo
    Ok, I’ll wait for the next updates and check how it goes. :)

  • Actually Manjaro guys are currently doing some bug fixes and new features.
    So I assume a new version is coming in near future.

  • Problably, but the error (if it really is an error) doesn’t interfere with Pamac’s performance like a few weeks ago😉

  • @bryanpwo Yeah, that’s very good. And probably/hopefully this new issue will be solved in the next release.

  • pamac-tray is not open into update tab anymore?
    because the “command” pamac-updater is still doing this…

  • @joekamprad
    yes, that’s right, therefore I think it’s a minor error. If you don’t use the terminal, the update screen will not appear. You have to click manually to the update screen.

    How did you get that output? I didn’t.

    Seems that 6.2.5-1 already had the same behavior, it didn’t go to updater even if there were updates available.

  • thats from running pamac-updater inside terminal, and output from journal, as you can see on bottom terminal:

    No,at least over here it didn’t. Yesterday morning when I started the computer, there were 48 updates and pamac 6.2.5-2 was among them. This morning I received one update and that’s when the behaviour started.

  • @joekamprad
    Thanks for clearing that up.

  • @bryanpwo
    I just updated one of my machines, it had 6.2.5-1 and after clicking the tray icon it didn’t go directly to updating.

  • @manuel
    Strange, I didn’t have that on KDE, XFCE and Cinnamon.
