[SOLVED] Manjaro Forums read-only at present .. is it just me?

Post by BG405 »

I don't visit those Forums very often but did just now to look for a solution for my trackpad issue (not working after resume from suspend). Found a clue pointing me in the right direction, but can't even bookmark the page on-site (my browser bookmark DB is a mess & needs sorting at some point to get that working again).

Is this global? Seems strange but maybe it's down for maintenance; not had that before.

Thanks for that info, mshmm. I don't recall LMF being out for any (significant) time when we had the issue with the ISOs a couple of years or so ago.

Me neither.

Looking at the tweets, it seems that there has been a server hardware failure, but things are not always straightforward with Manjaro...

Thought I'd better mention (belatedly) that they have set up a new Forum using the old URL. Old Forum accessible via http://archived.forum.manjaro.org/ :)

if you take a peak purely out of interest at either the new or archived sites, remember to clean the service worker(s) from your browser afterwards.

Yep, which works regardless of which shade of green your affected distribution may be :D

I guess the 2 posts above are off-topic and not related to the topic "Manjaro Forums read-only at present .. is it just me?"

That seems to be an unrelated issue to me but absolutely no need to apologize. I didn't spot the connection as it's worded so differently to what I was initially looking for, which seems to be a historic issue with KDE anyway on these Lenovos.

In this case, this fix on my specific machine seems to have been 100% successful, so hopefully it might help users of other DEs on the same hardware.

I think the "trackpad issue" thread (and my supposed "solution" which has seemingly worked 100% for me, and for others with an additional step or two) was one of my first posts on the new Manjaro Forums. It was just a FYI.

No worries! It's sorted so all is good. Now I've sorted the initial hurdles with their re-incarnated Forum I'll probably be spending most of my time back on here, as usual. :mrgreen:
