Error when starting Antergos

@pleasekillme said:

…You said earlier that using the Universal USB installer didn’t work with Antergos, right?

Right. USB writing programs are only useful for ISOs that can’t be directly dd-ed onto USB stick. For non-hybrid ISOs.

Antergos ISOs are perfect hybrid images. They called so because there’s no difference on what media they were copied to and booted from, DVD or USB.

USB writers almost always simply damage hybrid ISOs copying them onto the sticks.

If I burnt the iso onto a disk, do you think I will get different results?

Most probably no, you won’t. If all hardware works correctly and as expected, then there’s absolutely no difference where Antergos installer is started from - from DVD disk or USB stick. The results are the same.

Fresh ISO install, running into bugs.

updates seem to have fixed isses with Network Manager allowing me to switch WiFi networks and modifying their settings. As well as turning off and restarting computer is now working. Keyboard layout still reverts back to Qwerty unless I set another Dvorak layout with a different name as my secondary keyboard layout. Hopefully it gets worked out but not a big deal to me

My other issues are related to specific packages, mostly in AUR, and should be fixed by package maintainers. So I will mark this thread as solved.

Sound at startup on Antergos Gnome?

Thank you Just :)

But i have a problem

I made a folder with “Gentle_Sounds”, with a couple of sounds inside, placed at usr/share/sounds, downloaded at Gnome-look. Later with the dconf, change org.gnome.desktop.sound.theme-name freedesktop, to org.gnome.desktop.sound.theme-name Gentle_Sounds (exactly the name of the folder), done also with root. Later reboot and nothing happens :(

Authentication Failed Errror [SOLVED]

Herbie, I hadn’t changed anything and as soon as I mentioned it here the issue was resolved within twelve hours or so. My gut tells me it was something that I downloaded that screwed everything up. Not sure what but all is working.

@steven5632 yes I’ve tried this…but didn’t quite solve the problem completely. So maybe there’s a driver I’m missing as well

What is Antergos Exactly ?

@Wyn said:

I use Antergos because I find “The Arch Way” pointless. I’d rather automate the process then do it manually whenever I want to set up a system. When setting up a new vm all I need to do on Antergos is feed the installer a package list, boom done. Saying Ubuntu is Antergos is just wrong, there’s no similarity. Ubuntu/Debian may be stable but they aren’t up to date.

same people say Manjaro is more stable than arch

Manjaro does not use Arch repo’s which is a delayed update. If a security update comes out I would want it asap. When they posted a news announcement for moving back the clock due to ssl it showed me how they care about security.

The REAL difference of Arch & Antergos ...

Probably the main reason they are down to #11 on Distro watch instead of top 5 where they should be. Antergos is also seen as Arch which could be why they dont rank as high as Manjaro which is seen as a softer Arch.

I wouldn’t stick with Arch if I had to use their forums either & most solutions to issues I get here or elsewhere.

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)

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.
