Have you tried Fn + F3?

The issue is observable only with fbturbo - it treats all displays as the default one. If you disable it and run just Panfrost, everything is picked up as expected.

There are a few threads for Raspberry Pi that make adjustment directly to `/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf` to manually set the monitor setup. My attempts to use a few of those instructions didn't produce satisfactory results.

On ayufan's and mrfixit's builds I can't see such shenanigans with fbturbo.conf. There should be something else for fbturbo to behave normally with multi-monitor setup that I'm missing.

Circumvention Hack: works if you use USB-Audio (e.g.: those USB-to-3mm-jack dongles that come pre-packaged with some headphones)

I don't have one of these available atm. But maybe I will grab one with USB-A to 3.5mm => I could use it later for the PC tower that has bad motherboard 3.5mm out Smile

I run Manjaro xfce off a micro SD card (I started with Preview 3 and keep the packages up to date). I decided to keep Manjaro as my secondary OS as the kernel is rock-stable and userland is 64bit. I started to set it up and feel I'm in the dark Linux ages, again:

- I don't find a GUI setting to turn off the screen after some idle time. All GUI settings just turn the screen black, but not off. Currently, I use xset to manually turn off the screen, e.g.

$ xset dpms force off


- When I ssh -Y into another machine and start emacs remotely, no single font is found. I then installed the 75dpi and 100dpi fonts and needed to manually set +fp /usr/share/fonts/75dpi/ and set +fp /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/. I can't remember the last time I needed to deal with fonts. Shouldn't the fp paths be set automatically by the package manager?


- Manjaro is a rolling release distribution. Some software seems to roll faster than other:

$ /usr/bin/xfce4-screensaver
/usr/bin/xfce4-screensaver: error while loading shared libraries: libxfconf-0.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The more recent version libxfconf-0.so.3 version is installed. Both seem to be compatible and a soft link fixes the problem

# ln -s /usr/lib/libxfconf-0.so.3.0.0 /usr/lib/libxfconf-0.so.2


- Similar problem with tumblerd (log from systemd journal). Why aren't dependencies automatically installed?

Doh. I only noticed this message after I've made a donation using the Open Collective yesterday Sad

Are PMs off by default? I've never changed any setting, and can't seem to find it in the profile settings pages either at first glance.

It is ok to use Open Collective also. Thank you for your generous support.

Even I am not familiar with this forum settings. Please check in your profile.

This is the kind of thing I believe to be SoP for ArchLinux and derivatives. I'm open to gentle correction, if I'm mistaken or out of date. Such manual configuration is what led Jamie Zawinski to quip, "Linux is free, only if your time is worthless", about 20 years ago. Relevant to this comment, Jamie is the originator and maintainer of the Xscreensaver collection!

Those years were excellent for learning *Nix systems, 'under the covers' in the day. I feel blessed by the advent of Debian and derivatives with package dependency management, /etc/alternatives, and protection for configuration file customization by the package manager.

I have problems using the camera and microphone with Firefox on a Manjaro KDE that was kept up-to-date with `pacman -Syu`all the way since preview2.
 
The camera itself works (I can use it with e.g. `ffplay /dev/video3` or 'guvcview-qt -d /dev/video3`)
But it I use Firefox (e.g.: with http://meet.jit.si/ ), I only get 'Default Video Device' in the drop down list, with no other option.
I suspect Firefox is then trying to open the wrong device (`/dev/video0` - the rockchip-rga raster graphics accelerator), because I can't get any picture.
Also the video button stay muted and can't be unmuted. 

I get the same problem with audio too, only 'Default Audio Device' too, and weirdly Firefox doesn't show up in the 'Recording' tab of Pulseaudio.
Mike button stays muted too.

Has somebody seen this ?
