For anyone struggling with the same problem, just so they don’t have to trawl through the thread over at bbs.archlinux.org, and potentially waste time implementing the fixes which don’t work, here’s what I did.
First, open a console and change the directory:
Run a quick ls to list your packages:
Scroll down to lib32-sqlite. The offending package is actually lib32-qt4, but you can’t roll it back without rolling back lib32-sqlite first. In my list I had the following entries:
So to roll back lib32-sqlite-3.15.0-1 to lib32-sqlite-3.14.2-1:
sudo pacman -U lib32-sqlite-3.14.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
Do the same with lib32-qt4-4.8.7-5. In my list I had the following two entries:
To roll back version 4-4.8.7-5 to 4-4.8.7-4, simply enter the following:
sudo pacman -U lib32-qt4-4.8.7-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
You might also want to add the packages to pacman’s ignorePkg list.
For the record, as I was farting about with this workaround, they released lib32-qt4-4.8.7-6 which core dumps Skype completely.
Keep getting this error message whilst trying to start Skype:
/usr/lib32/skype/skype: error while loading shared libraries: libQtWebKit.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Any idea what needs to be installed to fix it? It was working fine, but an update seems to have broken it.
I’ve had this problem before and it was fixed by reinstalling the appropriate thumbnailer, but this time a reinstall didn’t fix it.
I’m running the MATE desktop, and Caja is often running at 32 percent on the system monitor, despite it not even being open. To be clear, it’s not I’m running Caja, it sticks at 32 percent, and then it’s not shutting down properly… it’s I’m running it and shutting it down, the CPU loads drops to 0 percent, and then much later I can see CPU activity and when I check the monitor it’s always Caja. It’s almost like it’s running in the background despite me shutting it down, and then randomly freaking out at some later point in time.
Not sure what’s going on here… any ideas?
@dastagg Yeah, the odd thing is that Mate is set as default in .dmrc, yet when I get to the log-in screen, the default entry still shows as XFCE. It’s not a terrible chore to change–it’s just a case of choosing Mate from the drop down–but it’s an extra step that (a) wasn’t a problem a week ago, and (b) I often forget to do it, meaning I have to log out and then back in again.
I have a few Desktop Environments installed: XFCE, Mate, KDE, etc. When I get to the log-in screen, it used to show the last DE I logged into as the default option, but now it shows XFCE every time, despite my main DE being Mate. Obviously, all you have to do to change it is pick Mate from the drop down, but I’m curious as to why it suddenly shows XFCE as the default option. Is there a way of manually setting up Mate to show us as the default option at the log-in screen?
Bingo! There were a couple of folders that I’d backed up but forgotten to delete. For example…
- 43G /home/mel/.local.bak
However, my existing .local folder, is currently over 23 GB. This added to the rest of my /home files amount to a lot more than 20.3 GB. When you right click the /home folder and choose properties, does the used space tally not include hidden files or something?
As you can see from the attached .jpg, it says used space 20.3/free space 2.9–yet it’s a 100 GB partition. And even after deleting the 43 GB .local.bak, if I right-click my home folder, it still says I only have 2.9 GB free.
The whole list reads:
60K /home/mel/VirtualBox VMs
4.0K /home/mel/Vuze Downloads
12K /home/mel/My Digital Editions
22M /home/mel/Car Accident
3.3M /home/mel/My Kindle Content
104M /home/mel/Kodi Backup
