Can't install Antergos on my Mid-2014 rMBP

@Eamonn-Doyle My install bombed out today using the fresh, testing iso dated today. I think I will hold off until Antergos puts out an iso and verifies to everyone that it’s working.

[SOLVED] WIFI visible, scanning, but not connecting

Thank you for your comments.

I’ve tried WICD to connect to a WiFi network and it worked, but apparently (and thanks WICD I got that feedback), DHCP is not working properly and that’s why NetworkManager wasn’t able to connect to my Wireless network. It still doesn’t work, but it’s something particular with my router maybe, because it works on others networks.

In summary, I ended up hating WICD, and I’m back to NetworkManager. By trying a lot of approaches to connect to WiFi, I created a lot of conflicts. So, back to the simple by now.

Feeling noobish trying to fix screen resolution, solved but suggestions needed.

What I would do is download newrez and just keep in you home directory.
I should have said that in the beginning.
That way it is always available. I do that with a few programs.
If I install a new distro, I don’t have to go searching again.

Nvidia with full power - how can I get bumblebee working without Vsync/fps cap?

Hi,

Please see added screenshot taken rom my Ubuntu install. There I have an option in Nvidia-settings to switch to discrete or integrated graphics. (log out and in again)

Is this not possible in Antergos/Arch.?After reading all the Wikis on Nvidia, Bumblebee, Prime and whatnot I could not find such a solution.

Only thing that works is bumblebee but the performance is bad compared to the Ubuntu solution. I get a fps cap in Steam games of 50fps. No matter if I use primusrun or optirun, Also no difference when I start steam with vblnakmode 0 or vblanktosync=0 . I always have the fps limit. Under Ubuntu i run the same game with 90+fps.

Anyone having the same issue? Any tips?

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Very slow file transfer

I’m running Xfce4 64bit on Acer 8930g and noticed when transferred a large video, it goes very fast via the command line. But, under Thunar… it is very slow.
Why is that happening?

Attempted to install the .iso dated 5.26 for x86 64b. I was attempting to install the KDE desktop. Ran through the installer prompts, entered my name, etc. and when I clicked install I received the following error message

[ Grub ] After install.. it's not Antergos-Grub

@mine I believe If you installed Debian 2nd then that is the one used. Install Debian 1st then Antergos.

chromium over firefox, why ?

I just found this:

man --help Usage: man [OPTION...] [SECTION] PAGE... -C, --config-file=FILE use this user configuration file ... -H, --html[=BROWSER] use /usr/bin/chromium or BROWSER to display HTML output

So while I wouldn’t touch chromium apparently it’s some kind of de facto default ?!

Antergos vs Manjaro

I don’'t use Gnome or Antergos, I am on Manjaro with the mirrors pointing to Unstable (sorta kinda Arch but a day or so behind) and I am on OpenRC and no Systemd or Pulse. I now have Palemoon and Thunderbird up and I am using about 400mb. When I boot up my computer reports about 215mb.
So your system reporting 1.1gb is outlandish by any standard. The only time I ever got that high was when I was using Pulse and Systemd with Thunderbird and Firefox and an editor (Geany).
Closiing those applications and it would drop to about 600-700mb.
So maybe you should bring up gnome-system-monitor and check the Processes tab and click on Res Mem and see if any app is going bonkers using ram.

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you both! I have already installed a Cinnamon build, stress-testing it and will install a permanent build this weekend. Although I am a Cinnamon fan, GNOME Shell 3.16 has caught my eye. Decisions, decisions…

[Solucionado] Error actualizando Antergos.

Encantado de que te guste la distro. El problema del ficherito es que pamac bloquea la base de datos y luego no suelta el fichero.

Los desarrolladores estan informados del problema, pero no parecen estar por la labor de solucionarlo. Veremos.

Saludos!

Polska społeczność Antergos

Konfigurator Nvidia zaproponował mi sterownik 340,76 jednak gdy go instaluje na Anergosie to system nie uruchamia się. Dlatego wróciłem teraz na ubuntu. Troche irytowało mnie też to, że niemogę w szybki sposób jak na ubuntu instalować niektórych aplikacji, tylko trzeba je kompilować a przy tym ciągle pojawiały się jakieś błędy. Dzięki za pomoc ale posiedze jeszcze na ubuntu.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
