Internet Access for Cnchi

Best bet is to google your router brand and model, I’m sure you’ll find which are the default values.

Can do! I’ll let you know when I have done so successfully.

Beginners’ subforum for general Antergos issues.


I switched to i3wm on a modern, fast laptop and never looked back. KDE was my DE of choice. Don’t miss it although my needs are different from most — don’t play games, so it simplifies a lot of things.

Post your workstation, desktop, WM/DE issues and questions here.

Flickering or dithering

as wiki say adding i915.enable_psr=0 and/or i915.enable_rc6=0 to kernel parameters inside grub may help:
edit /etc/default/grub

$ sudo nano /etc/default/grub

change the line:



GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.enable_rc6=0"

save with [Ctlg+X]
and rewrite grub config:

$ sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

First ind see if it get better after reboot…

Issues related to Audio/Video/Image playback/editing, and gaming.

Antergos \[Arch\] suitable for gaming?

Way late response, but the topics still causes buzz: have tried, with the most current, Linux Mint with Steam and it ran well but lagged whenever going into new map sections as data was streaming. Not too bad game performance and openGL with official NVidia drivers at max settings provide plenty of eye candy.

Problem is, even after 3 years, Linux Mint and Ubuntu both lack adequate controller support and from my experience have had numerous issues with xpad and the like in those distros -this has gone on for 3 years now. Linux Mint and Ubuntu are way behind Antergos at the kernel level thus lacking native support for the newest GPU drivers and anything that would support XBox controllers and have read about issues with Steam Controllers as well.

I have yet to get Steam OS to run on my hardware although I can actually get it to install now -that’s a start right?

The above points are many of the lesser reasons that swayed me toward Antergos that just seemed to pile on top of more pressing issues like full support and development opportunities for my platform. Am getting pretty comfortable with the Antergos system for Arch Linux and their utilities are add its appeal. My reference game was Borderlands 2 and noticed no lag during intros or cut scenes. In my opinion enjoy openGL games because they seem more clearly defined than DX specific engines, but I mainly use Intel and NVidia chips.

I definitely recommend this system for gaming: you’ll get a better, more recent kernel experience with an opportunity to step into even newer kernel releases, better native hardware support including GPU and controller drivers and list goes on.

Think that the fact that I am currently posting to a thread that’s 3 years old addressing issues, that still exists, says something - if you’re here looking around Antergos for a possible gaming experience then start making plans for installation.

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Vpn autoconnect messed up wifi


I setup private internet access vpn with their script. I can connect to my phone and to the vpn separately but it i select ‘automatically connect to vpn’ it doesn’t work. Every time I reboot I get a new connection number with default settings so it doesn’t autoconnect.

Even stranger, now my wifi will not connect at all. I can see the connection name but if i try to connect it tries but nothing happens. I’ve tried deleting the connection but it still won’t connect.

Any suggestions? thanks

ATTN: Deprecation of ABS tool and rsync endpoint

Due to high maintenance cost of scripts related to the Arch Build System, we have decided to deprecate the abs tool and thus rsync as a way of obtaining PKGBUILDs.

The asp tool, available in [extra], provides similar functionality to abs. asp export pkgname can be used as direct alternative; more information about its usage can be found in the documentation. Additionally Subversion sparse checkouts, as described here, can be used to achieve a similar effect. For fetching all PKGBUILDs, the best way is cloning the svntogit mirrors.

While the extra/abs package has been already dropped, the rsync endpoint (rsync:// will be disabled by the end of the month.

Dual Boot Option In Cnchi


Windows 10 appears to use ntfs partitions on my system, with a “Microsoft Reserved Partition” being labeled as “unknown” If you are looking for a helpful screenshot, along with my realization of the ridiculous amount of space that Microsoft has already used and filled up on my system, here’s a picture of it.

Hope this helps:slight_smile:

Great Distro!

(I mixed DE/DM)

I have not done the numbers so i would not know. I go by preference only. I dont doubt your numbers!

But I have an I7-7500U, and Unity is the only DE out of the box that feels as fast as a mac on resume, and I grant this probably stains my view… (Emphases on “out of the box”).

I have no need to customize Unity, thats just it ;). It suits me.

KDE is not for me, to many options…

Which Music Player is it worth testing?

You all are kidding, aren’t you?!! Off course,

CANTATA (the mpd client).

It’s head and shoulders above all the rest, in fact, sorry folks, all the others are jokes!

Lollypop, a seemingly new player, looks somewhat promising though I haven’t tried it. Babe-qt looks promising too but seems to be in danger of tight KDE integration in the future.

What's the point about the wiki?

You’ve both made good points.

Since the information I can provide is the only information that is missing from the Arch Wiki, I’d rather do it there. I don’t have too many antergos-specific stuff installed anyway. The hardware support is provided by software that is maintained by Arch people, as I understand correctly.

I’m talking for example about the Lenovo laptops that we use at work. They are new models, not mentioned at: So I’d be glad to test Antergos on these and provide input on the wiki. If the Antergos wiki had such a page, I’d be glad to contribute it, but rather not start it from scratch in this case. I’m not a good wiki layouter (or in general) anyway.

I will however contribute new content to the Antergos wiki. I have some ideas already.

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)

quitar deposito de claves de inicio

@danetche said in quitar deposito de claves de inicio:

“deposito de claves de inicio de sesion”
Encontré esto:
Cuando instalamos Linux en el ordenador, sucede que la contraseña que ponemos como acceso de usuario, suele ser la misma que utiliza el sistema para el depósito de claves y si posteriormente al pasar un tiempo cambiamos la contraseña de usuario, el deposito no la cambia y se queda la que pusimos al instalar.
Ahora tenemos 2 contraseñas que ya no coinciden, y el sistema cada cierto tiempo lanza el mensaje de aviso pidiendo la contraseña del depósito para desbloquear el acceso administrativo.

Vamos a la ruta Inicio/ Preferencias/ Contraseñas y claves.
Al ejecutarse la interfaz gráfica del programa veremos en el panel izquierdo, varios tipos de contraseña y claves. Vamos a elegir Contraseñas/ Inicio de sesión y haga clic derecho sobre este ultimo y elegimos: Cambiar la contraseña.

Se abrirá la ventanita famosa y pedirá la contraseña, que recuerden es la primera que pusimos al instalar el sistema y que puede coincidir o no con la de usuario; la escribimos y clic en Desbloquear.
Ahora se abre una nueva ventana para cambiar la contraseña y es donde tenemos 2 opciones: podemos pasar de la contraseña y que nunca mas nos la pregunte (opción insegura) o podemos poner la misma contraseña que la que tenemos al iniciar sesión en el sistema, así nunca la preguntará mas y dejamos el archivo de contraseñas seguro (opción recomendada).
Si quieren pasar de la contraseña y quitarla para que no aparezca nunca mas, no escriban nada ni en Contraseña ni en Confirmar y solo hagan clic en Siguiente. Por seguridad, el sistema les alerta de si quieren guardar las contraseñas sin cifrarlas al alcance de cualquiera y vuelven a hacer clic en Continuar. De esta forma, nunca mas aparece la maldita ventanita.
