Issues related to Antergos installation.
Blackscreen after Installation - Mouse in corner, X11, Lightdm


I did a installation of Antergos. At the installation from the live cd I (again) had the problem that my cursor was stucked in the upper left corner. As I have had this bug earlier, but I remembered the solution. At the startup of the live cd I changed the Kernel Mode to “No ACPI”.
Therefore I would install Antergos and use the mouse at the installation.

After the installation and everything worked (I have done this today for 4 times…) I wanted to start Antergos, however my mouse cursor is stucked in the upper left corner and then I get a full blackscreen (no TTY).

However with “quiet 3” inside Grub I managed to get TTY-access and I could startx and lightdm in test/debug mode, but my mouse cursor is still stucked. I tried the famous invisible mouse cursor uxa fix of the antergos wiki, but after creating the conf-file and rebooting I can’t start lightdm anymore and startx gives me an X11 error “(EE) no screens found (EE)” (which I will upload in a minute).

I also found out that chinchi isn’t installing/ offering to install Nvidia-drivers. At one of my many installation tried I found out that the nvidia drivers weren’t installed, but installing them didn’t really use anything.



I onced tried installing and enabling GDM but it didn’t worked either. But maybe I installed in wrong. (Installing through pacman, enabling and rebooting).
Hope you guys can help.

Juniper Pulse VPN - Openconnect Problems

I’ve used Cisco AnyConnect before on Linux. I used the Cisco client but it installed with out issue.

Whichever route you take to login to the Cisco VPN, you’ll need to have your network administrator turn on Linux support if it hasn’t already been.

Once that is complete, you should be able to connect to the Cisco website that your company has setup. Once you login and it verifies you, it will install a client through java.

@got-it-man Fixed it. The famous “export __GL_YIELD=USLEEP” for preventing screen tearing in KDE caused huge performance loss.

Hibernate on Low Battery


I am trying to get hibernate to work correctly. I read the following wiki here:

But neither of those utilities running in terminal give me anything on my XPS 13. Is there something I can do so it auto-hibernates itself when it reaches 1-2% of battery life?

No decsciption available
Congratulations for your great linux distro ! IT rocks !

@christhegreek if you want to roll back kernels use this:

You must install these 2 packages:
yaourt -S downgrade
pacman -S expac

Command to see recent upgraded packages:
expac --timefmt=’%Y-%m-%d %T’ ‘%l\t%n’ | sort | tail -20

with that you can chose the kernel you want (don’t forget the headers though)

And all new kernels are anyway available asap.

The downgrade function is quite important, hope it will help lots of people ;-)

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)

Dzień dobry !

Witam, instalację drukarki przez Wifi należy wykonać w HP setup z pakietu hplip. Tam należy wybrać opcję bezprzewodowej konfiguracji i postępować zgodnie z instrukcjami na ekranie. Co prawda nie robiłem tego na Antergosie, lecz na innym linuksie, ale myślę że powinno również działać. Pozdrawiam.

Hola Kara.

La verdad si la conecto la laptop al smart tv con hdmi para ver series…etc. Pero ese error igual me lo lanza si no tengo el hdmi conectado. De todas formas muchas gracias, y como no me da problemas graves, lo pasare por alto :+1:

@karasu said in Intel_dp_start_link_train?:


Como supongo habrás adivinado es del driver de tu tarjeta gráfica (intel).

He leído por ahí que puede traer problemas de cuelgues en según qué resoluciones y sólo si conectas por HDMI o Displayport (no sé si es tu caso).

Parece que los desarrolladores del driver pasan bastante de este bug.

La verdad es que si no tienes problemas de cuelgues, yo no le haría caso.
