Hey,

I went through the whole magilla, ending up with not being aable to Import one, 'Antonio Rojas'. I tried the command: "sudo rm /etc/pacman.d/gnupg" I was told I can not do this because, /etc/pacman.d/gnupg" is a Directory.

Where do i go from, here.

You need the recursive flag to remove directories.
remove a file: rm <file>
remove a directory: rm -r <directory>

So you have to go with:

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
sudo rm -r /etc/pacman.d/gnupg

Do you have a problem with the the pacman keyring while running pacman -Syu?
Because that's what this thread is about.
It may be my lack of English skills but I'm not sure if I understand correctly what sort of problem you have, but if you have trouble opening the GUI of some application from your desktop that has nothing to do with the topic of this thread.
If that's the case and I got that right please open a new thread in this section of the forum and copy+paste your text.
If I got that wrong and you have a problem with your keyring maybe try to phrase your issue differently and describe it a little bit more in detail.

what is wrong with you, I tell you I update pacman and my gui icons stops working and you think it belongs in a new thread ( maybe) but you cant say it does not need to be mentioned here. all of a sudded im a spamer, stop being a jerk! sorry I dont fall down at your awesome linux ninja feet, I love spatry  followed  him for 3 to4 years and he recommened Xiphos which make me like hime more, so get off your high horse and stop being a bully, jay baughn, alive wire electrical llc.
ps. mom said to come up from the basement and do your homework you 13 year old jerk!
Okay guys, stop it right here! I don't see anything offensive in Bendo's messages either, but I'm sure JayB is a bit worked up due to his issues. However, this is no reason to fight here. Stay calm and deal with your temper somewhere else... This is a friendly forum and we deal with infractions very strictly.

On that Note, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login please RE-READ the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login & You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. We don't want to exclude anyone from here, but we will if we have to.



Anyway, after that kind of bitter start here:
back to solving your issue...

As a software-GUI, mCOLe uses pamac (yes, that spelling is correct :P). If a program doesn't work correctly, you should always try to run it through the terminal and see for ourput-errors in there. This may help use solving the issue.
Pacman is a young packagemanager (not as mature as debian's "apt", for example). So while there are some major disadvantages, it sometimes still suffers  child-diseases. The Pamac- & Octopi- GUI's obviously are effected by that (and sometimes even cause issues on their own).

So, what you should do to help us solving the issue is typing following in your command line and giving us the output of your terminal:
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
gksudo pamac

edit: @JayVii: didn't see that you already posted and linked the guidelines
still don't see how pamac GUI issues should be discussed in a stickied pacman-keyring thread.

This is not how we talk to each other in this community.
2 of your 3 posts in this forum contain strong language and insult another user, please try to keep language at a friendly level.

I said so because your problem (which is a problem for sure) has nothing to do with the pacman keyring (a common issue which is discussed here)
If you don't know that - no problem.
But I already told you so and you're still ignoring that.

I told you so in a FRIENDLY way, you ignored that and started to insult me instead.
I'm here to help users out in my free time, the one thing you can expect is to at least not being attacked for that.

On Page 2, I gave an You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.
You gotta read all answers before posting your questions :P

Don't take it the wrong way - I know how confusing all this can be, when you are a beginner - but the solution IS written down here already. So it somewhat confuses me, that people cannot find it.
Any hint from you guys how we could point people into the right direction?

Peace, JayVii

Well I'd say because of that it's important to keep sticky-ed threads like that clean and not discuss anything else here.
There are like two sequences of commands which offer the solution but somehow the thread is 3 pages.
I think about deleting this discussion with JayB here, he had plenty of time to open a new thread on his topic like suggested and it doesn't contribute anything to this thread.
Also what's a little bit problematic here is that the solution can fail/need more time because of this entropy thing, it's also already described in the thread, but maybe it's still not that clear.
The creation of the PGP key can be not completed but without you seeing any error message.
That doesn't mean that the solution is wrong or you need another solution/command,just some more time and activity, installing and starting haveged should help - but again - it's all in this thread.

Hm, to summarize the thread as short as possible, try that:

1.

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
pacman -Syu haveged
systemctl start haveged
systemctl enable haveged
2.
Let some time pass by, start a video or run a command like

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
ls -Rl /to make your hdd work.

3.
execute the following commands:

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
rm -R /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
rm -R /root/.gnupg/
gpg --refresh-keys
pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro
pacman-key --refresh-keys

4. try to run

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
pacman -Syyuagain.

Alternative some people have success with simly synchronizing the archlinux-keyring package.

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring

This distribution is cool. But this needs to be fixed, right?

 Another thing, I like the Compiz effects, but it is very buggy, so I had to return to Xfwm4. The Kwin is good?

Rearis, be careful with that "FIX". it's only a temporary fix. running your packagemanager without any key-checking is a risky thing...

You should only use this measure if you need to do updates RIGHT NOW. or if you want to install something RIGHT NOW which cannot wait. So, yes. You should undo this ASAP.

In the longrun, though this will lower your security, so you should find a different solution. (eg: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login or You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login)
