not happy with snap support removed

If you need snap support, then:

yay -S pamac-snap-plugin

should do the trick.

Thanks for support. Case closed:)

Some testing :slight_smile:

Glad to see a couple of the niggles I had, have been sorted.
Always loved your interpretation of Manjaro.
Can`t wait for the new release.

If I install 20.02 will the bug fixes above be applied… or will I have to wait for the new release.
Keep up the great work Napcok :wink:

Hi @SudoReboot :slight_smile:
I think it will be better to wait a while for next release.
I’m working on it in my spare time, hope to have new iso ready in 2 - 3 weeks.

Thanks Buddy for the update… looking forward to giving it a test drive.
