Is anyone running into build errors? I think it is related to my GCC version being beyond what this was originally built on, based on quick research.

There is a bug in 5.7.x (5.7.4) i915 driver that causes freeze on boot with some intel integrated gpus (a1398 is affected). Not updating this package until the upstream issue is resolved.

Maybe my connection is bad but when I try to download the doc, the update fails because the conntion is too slow. Is there another way to download all the files?

another bug report: 5.6 kernel introduced incompatibility with bcwc_pcie package, so no webcam available, at least until the driver maintainer issues a new version.

In the meanwhile it is possible to update the driver manually after changing code, following the instructions at

Found the problem! hid-apple-patched-git-dkms update to support Apple Magic keyboards does some funky auto detect of kb layout based on country code. Probably not your problem :)

I don't use any remapping. The defaults used to map the modifier keys as described in my previous post. But since the update, I've had to remap keys to get the old behaviour back.

My MBP model is Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015.

I guess if you are not aware of any changes to the keyboard driver then I need to go through the latest Manjaro update and see if any keyboard related components got updated.

@ohell Unfortunately I cannot reproduce - the stock behaviour (without the remaps) hasn't changed, at least for me. What software are you using to remap the keys?

ohell commented on 2020-04-09 23:09

@greg2010 The last update has changed the keyboard layout for me - previously I has the apple cmd key mapped as ctrl, left alt was win and ctrl was super.

But now the mapping of these keys is jumbled up: ctrl on the keypad seems to have become function, fn is win, cmd is alt.

Thank you for maintaining this package, @annguyenfoss. I'll try to keep this package up-to-date, time permitting. I've done a bit of testing and didn't encounter any issues with my macbook, but since it's the first release of this package with 5.5.x kernel, there might be broken drivers/etc. Please do post here if that's the case.

Thanks a lot for keeping it going while you could, @annguyenfoss!

I am tempted to take your place, but I have no experience in maintaining packages! I guess we can wait a few weeks for someone more qualified to step up, else I will try :).

This is too useful a package to be left behind, IMO.
