Everyone should just work on pinging them via forum post, email, and or social media begging for open source. I would not recommend being rude or angry about it. Just show them there is much desire for it.

Game plays great on Debian distros but not Arch.

Anyone got any idea on this? My favorite game ‘Sins of a Solar Empire Rebelion’ used to play on my PC running Antergos. Then a few months back, after an update, it stopped. Nothing I tried worked. I ended up installing Debian on dual boot & it worked great. I have now done a fresh install of Antergos & still SOASER still will not run. I have installed, Debian, Ubuntu, Zorin on my PC & Laptop & SOASER runs flawlessly on both, so not a graphics card issue. Seems Debian distros work but Arch do not (tried Manjaro too). Tried using older Wine & PlayonLinux & still same. Best result I get is a black screen that pops on SOASER for a second & off again repetatively or plays intro fine but stops before menu screen.

What is your hobbies?

I do a lot of different outdoors stuff like backpacking and a little rock climbing. I have a pilots license. I do HAM radio stuff. I used to do lot of motocross and snowmobiling back in my youth. I just bought a new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with plans on getting back into off roading and overland/expedition style trips. AND… I try every week to get more and more involved with Linux stuff. I’d like to slowly turn myself into a power user over the next few years. First 3 years have been fun just learning all the heavy basics.

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.

Step 5) Test your new configuration
$ lightdm-webkit2-greeter
You should see your new wallpaper in the chooser on the right.

Cnchi vs Calamares

There is a Linux “installer” - Calamares. Actually, it’s not an installer, but something more like “installer framework” created by people from Manjaro, KaOS, BBQLinux, Fedora, Kubuntu, Maui and Netrunner. It’s pretty like Cnchi (with more pros for Cnchi imo). It use Qt5, Python3 and C++. It will be in use with upcoming Manjaro 0.9, KaOS and Maui.

I love Cnchi for it’s functionality and all that various options for end-user, but I also love the way Calamares project was raised. It isn’t another fork of fork. It isn’t "another approach". It is work of bunch of people from many various distros to create one, universal and good solution. I’ve seen something like this only once before (“merge” of LXQT and RazorQT desktop environments), and I believe it’s the most promising way of creating non-corporation based FOSS. Do You know any others projects with history like this?

And What do You think about Calamares? About it’s approach? There is a early preview video available on [http://calamares.github.io/][0]">[http://calamares.github.io/][1]

I’m wondering, Manjaro and Netrunner are somehow based on Arch, so creating distro or image based on Arch and using Calamares shouldn’t be difficult. Is this is possible to add/use Cnchi in similar way, I mean as installer for any distribution?

There is few things that is missing, like for example choice of DE step, encryption, or random password generating at this moment, but I believe they will be added soon. Calamares might be really nice opponent for our beloved Cnchi :)
