I am no expert but one of your issues is:

Could not run plymouth --ping: Failed to execute child process “plymouth” (No such file or directory)

You may need to go into /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and just have a look if the plymouth HOOK is listed therein.
Look under the HOOKS section.

***Post your mkinitcpio.conf file and please try to use the correct coding tags for listing said file. There is a sticky in the forums on how to do that. ***

So try that first. We can go from there to begin with.
There are other errors visible and they MAY or MAY NOT be associated.
Again, I am no pro at plymouth but I will help you as far as I am able to.

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Weird - Live USB works, but not the installed version

I recently decided to install Antergos in my computer (late-2009 27" iMac) with our friend the Radeon 4670 (hint: NO). Weird thing that I noticed long ago with Ubuntu and Fedora, and now with Antergos, is that booting (grub image, not UEFI) the Live works flawlessly, but after installation, only option is to disable KMS (nomodeset or radeon.modeset=0 in boot params), otherwise screen goes off.

So I think: hey, it must be something in X11 or boot line that allows Radeon to work.

For now, here’s the log since booting from Live USB (I booted from syslinux):
Also, the dmesg log:

Something curious:

From line 595 DRM inits, and Radeon driver is on. Line 975&976 show the backlight controller on, so we can adjust brightness.

Well, what’s going on with the installation, that does not work as the Live ISO?

Maybe is this line (11): Feb 11 16:58:00 ant-15.12 kernel: Command line: initrd=/arch/boot/intel_ucode.img,/arch/boot/archiso.img archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ANTERGOS earlymodules=loop modules-load=loop rd.modules-load=loop udev.log-priority=crit rd.udev.log-priority=crit quiet splash BOOT_IMAGE=/arch/boot/vmlinuz

There’s some point, maybe I should port some of the live grub orders in the installation in order to get the drivers to work.

I think to put also grub_gfxmode=2560x1440x24 would make it work, what do you think?

I hope we all could get it fixed, I really want to use Arch on my Mac :sweat_smile:

Later today I will investigate further this issue, maybe this will help more people Ok, no time today, nor time this weekend, so by Wednesday I’ll have further investigated this. I’ll report logs and xsession.

Gnome-Software should come out-of-the-box

@son.gnuku Last time I checked, the ALPM backend for Packagekit was not updated to support Pacman 4.2 and with the recent release of Pacman 5.0 it is now even further behind. We can’t include something that is not in 100% working condition. Sorry!

School blocks VPN

@peter.numas Thanks for the link! I went ahead and went with because it seemed like the most trustworthy.

And using it’s OpenVPN configuration tool I was able to configure it to use port 80 which is the HTTP port, and they cant block that.

Success! Took a few attempts to get things sorted out. Seems like even though smbpasswd -a seemed to worked I also had to use gpasswd sambashare-a. Thanks again!

Error en la instalacion

Hola contacto.mariovelasco,

Creo que justo estávamos haciendo una actualización del instalador, por esto te salió este mensaje.

Lo mejor seria que bajaras la última ISO de la web.
De todas maneras, si quieres intentarlo con la versión que ya tienes puedes llamar a cnchi (el instalador) de la siguiente manera:
sudo -E cnchi -dvn
podás seguir aunque te de ese error.

Отлючить эффект при прокручивании списка

скроллбар у меня вообще странный в Firefox, если прокручивать очень долго ленту новостей, то бегунок на скроллбаре не становиться очень при очень тонким как это было и есть везде. Он становиться примерно в два раза меньше обычного размера. Может такое не только в firefox, но в фм такое проверить не смогу)

Rechner friert ein

Also wenn ich richtig recherchiert habe, ist comodo eine Antiviren Software?
Wenn dem so ist, hat Antivirensoftware gerne mal die Eigenheit das System lahmzulegen.
Ansonsten wäre es mal interessant was so im Systemmonitor alles für Prozesse laufen…

Canviar idioma i disposicio de teclat del gnome


Suposo que no només el Gnome, sinó que tindràs tot el sistema en anglès.

Per afegir el català has de:

Editar el fitxer /etc/locale.gen i descomentar (treure el #) de la línia que diu ca_ES.UTF-8 UTF-8 Executar la comanda sudo locale-gen

Ara tens ja els dos idiomes, però tens l’anglès per defecte. Si vols canviar el sistema a català has d’editar el fitxer /etc/locale.conf per què quedi així:


Per canviar-ho a Gnome (disposició de teclat, llengua, …) pots fer-ho des del gnome-control-center (Fes alt+F2 i escriu gnome-control-center)
