[SOLVED] Side-effects of creating /etc/systemd/do-not-udevadm-trigger-

Whenever the "Reloading device manager configuration" post-transaction hook is called by pacman, my xkbmap gets reset to the default "us" layout. That particular hook executes this line:

/usr/share/libalpm/scripts/systemd-hook udev-reload

which in turn invokes the following lines causing the issue:

if [ ! -e /etc/systemd/do-not-udevadm-trigger-on-update ]; then
  /usr/bin/udevadm trigger -c change
  /usr/bin/udevadm settle
fi

I cannot find any reference to the file /etc/systemd/do-not-udevadm-trigger-on-update anywhere online. And so, I have now created that file to bypass the issue, and if I run into trouble I'll update this thread accordingly. In any case the next person in my position will have somewhat more information to go on than I did.

Well, I've poked around some more and found an unrelated thread here. It seems like this is an official solution in use by other Arch users. I'll mark this as solved.

If it's just about the layout switch you're going to be in general more future proof with https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg/K … tion_files

But I also consider the potential side effects from disabling this negligible and the chance for issues too high, so I'm also using that solution

Incase more info about this file is desired, see https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/77789


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
