⚠ Heads-up: mutter43 is being replaced by magpie-wm

When upgrading from budgie-desktop 10.7.2-5 to 10.7.2-6, the package mutter43
must be replaced with magpie-wm, which currently depends on mutter. As
mutter43 conflicts with mutter, manual intervention is required to complete
the upgrade.

First remove mutter43, then immediately perform the upgrade. Do not relog or
reboot between these steps.

    pacman -Rdd mutter43
    pacman -Syu



Just rechecked to see if installer is still fine and indeed no issue if someone does a new Install with Budgie:


If I might add a question: This thread has been referenced as a possible cause for an issue of mine with budgie that popped up very recently.

I just checked my installation history with the mentioned components:

So mutter43 was installed, then later removed and replaced by mutter, while magpie-wm was installed as well. Now, that happened on the same day you documented the issue here, and as I usually update in the mornings (when the popup informs me of the number of updates), I didn’t have a chance to catch the problem.

Now, I have the linked strange issue. Could this be caused by a now broken or otherwise unintended installation configuration?

It could be related but your question is at the post you linked too… i do not really understand why you put the question here? Also the output is a direct respons to what @pebcak asked for there …

I’m a fan of Budgie, but still I feel a bit frustrated adding keyboard layout to budgie-panel and
restarting ibus with a delay in a fresh installation and it crashes (spoils dconf for good).
I cannot offer Budgie to a family member with such a vulnerability.
(Why changing keyboard layouts? I recall a piece of advice of a Digital guy from the past:
Localization? Why don’t they agree in Europe on a common language? :joy:)
This is not a question. Avoid this feature: “Oops something went wrong”
