BUG: Unable to lock/autolock Antergos Gnome on Alienware m11x r2

Hello awesome Antergos Community,

before I post about my issue, I just want to express to the devs how much I love this distro. Honestly, I fell in love with Antergos from the moment I booted it as a live ISO. Your live USB, which in all other distros is usually mind-numbingly slow is faster then Ubuntu Gnome installed on my hard drive! Esthetics wise, it is also the most beautiful distros I’ve seen. Like all distros, Antergos has its problems but you’ve put alot of love into it.

My issue:

I’m not being able to lock Antergos, neither manaually or autolock.

**My setup: **

Antergos gnome. Installed on a Alienware m11x r2 + Kingston SSD now V300 (240GB) - 8gb RAM. /boot, / and /home are three different partitions. The is no swap… /boot is un-encrypted ext2. / and /home are LVM2 volumes embedded within a LUKS container. If you need more detailed info or logs, please let me know.

What I’ve tried: setting auto lock to turn on in 5 minutes after display off, immediatetly after display off - failure. Ctrl-alt-L (typical) command to lock - failure. Suspend - doesn’t lock on wake. The lock icon in the top right corner of screen causes my computer to power down unsafely instead of lock.

Do you have any recommendation?

I have some other issues but will be posting about it seperately.

Gnome acting unstable since update

@lots.0.logs said:

We don’t package Nitrux icons, nor does Arch so the only place to get them would be the AUR. I’m not sure I understand the issue from your explanation though, sorry :confused:

AUR only had 3.2.5-1 but Update Manger kept saying to upgrade to 3.5.0 & kept failing . Just tried again & it updated ok. Sorted.

[Solved] Multilibs Needed?

@Mike-Smith After you update you also need this:
Multilib repository
First, enable the Multilib repository as described in Multilib. Then install the gcc-multilib package.
I suggest you learn to check the Arch Wiki for info on such things, it is excellent. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/64-bit_FAQ

Blank White Screen After Update

Okay, I’m glad you did that because it was going to be my next suggestion. It seems the issue with the greeter is due to a bug in webkitgtk. An update should come down soon.

Tutorial: Adding a custom LightDM background

This tutorial assumes you have Gedit installed, but any text editor will work.

Step 1) Copy your new wallpaper into the Antergos wallpaper folder and the LightDM thumbnail folder.

$ sudo cp /path/to/image.jpg /usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/antergos/img/thumbs $ sudo cp /path/to/image.jpg /usr/share/antergos/wallpapers

Step 2) Change the permissions on the copied files so LightDM can access them.

$ cd /usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/antergos/img/thumbs $ sudo chmod 644 image.jpg $ cd /usr/share/antergos/wallpapers $ sudo chmod 644 image.jpg

Step 3) Add your new wallpaper to the picker on the right side of the lockscreen. This requires adding a new link in the section of /usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/antergos/index.html.

$ cd /usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/antergos $ sudo gedit index.html

Step 4) Add an a href with the same format as the other wallpapers, replacing the image name with the one you copied.

<a href="#" data-img="image.jpg" class="bg clearfix"> <img src="img/thumbs/image.jpg" /> </a>

Step 5) Test your new configuration

$ lightdm-webkit2-greeter

You should see your new wallpaper in the chooser on the right.

Bueno, he seguido buscando info y he vuelto a instalar el grub de Arch… El grub funciona, sin el aspecto del de Antergos, claro, y puedo entrar en windows pero cuando cargo Antergos aparece mi usuario y no reconoce la contraseña…
Es curioso porque en vez de aparecer el nombre del equipo aparece mi nombre, no se si debería ser así o no pero el caso es que no funciona la contraseña y sería muy raro que me hubiera confundido al establecerla ya que hay que escribirla 2 veces…
