Users should update to the new version of endeavouros-theming

Hi all!

For the busy or impatient users here’s a short version first:

  • update your system normally
  • after the update, install package eos-hooks

That’s it! :smile:

Then some more explanation for not-so-busy users. :wink:

Just released a new version 5-2.3 of package endeavouros-theming.
The hooks that caused trouble for many users are now deleted from that package, and they have been moved to another package.

This means that you need to first update your system normally, so that you have the new endeavouros-theming package installed. Then you’ll notice that under folder /etc/pacman.d/hooks files os-release.hook and lsb-release.hook are gone.

Then, if you want to have the hooks (you probably would), install the new package eos-hooks. After that those hook files will re-appear, back where they belong.

Worked flawlessly here too. Just waiting for new welcome 2.94 or 3.0 to land now!

Might be asking an obvious question, but will the hooks package be part of the default install from now on?

Yes, on new installs, but wait a couple of days, the July release is coming soon.

update went well, thanks.

a day before that, I had already manually set

sudo pacman -Sy endeavouros-theming --overwrite /etc/pacman.d/hooks/\*
sudo pacman -Syu

for the update to proceed without troubles.

now, after a reboot, my konsole/neofetch greets me warmly with the arch logo and OS: Arch x86_64.

i want my eos back, help :wink:

Did you install eos-hooks after updating your system?

yes, just as proposed.

What’s the output of command

  grep "Add EndeavourOS" /etc/pacman.d/hooks/*-release.hook
/etc/pacman.d/hooks/lsb-release.hook:Description = Add EndeavourOS specifc config.
/etc/pacman.d/hooks/os-release.hook:Description = Add EndeavourOS specifc config.

Please show the output of command

   cat /etc/lsb-release

both before and after reinstalling package lsb-release.

Does neofetch (or screenfetch) now work?
