Issues related to Antergos installation.
Printers
R

@joekamprad So i wanted to get back to you on this printing issue related to Antergos and possibly EndeavourOS. So i was able finally to reinstall Antergos Cinnamon after unchecking printing support because python2-gnomekeyring isn’t available anymore. So i installed cups and enabled it and started cups. Then i installed the MG2500 Canon driver from the AUR which is what i have always done before and the printer automatically always just installed with no configuration in CUPS when printing support was installed. Now because printing support isn’t installed and even though i installed and started CUPS the Printer doesn’t automatically install but i can configure CUPS and get it working on Antergos Cinnamon. So i looked on my other Antergos Cinnamon install that has different Brother printer on it which also automatically installed with the drivers from the AUR. Antergos was installed on this computer with printing support checked. So it has the following additional components installed.

cups-pk-helper
phython-pycups
print settings (system-config-printer)

So i installed these additional components on my newly reinstalled Antergos Cinnamon and installed the MG2500 driver from the AUR and the printer automatically installed as before. So now i have manage printing in the start menu which is CUPS and also print settings which shows my printer installed. So now i just have to try this the next time i install EndeavourOS and see if it’s the same because i could not get the printer working as it didn’t automatically install and when i configured CUPS it was giving the error for filter failed when i tried to print a test page. EndeavourOS also doesn’t have printing support on the install. I had no idea what components are needed so i just tried with cups but it didn’t work. I will eventually try it again in EndeavourOS.

Best video editing application
M

Hello Everyone,
I feel that videos have become an everyday practice in our lives but it takes a lot of effort to create one. I am also a budding video editor and currently looking for a software that is not very expensive and is easy to learn. I am currently referring this article https://beebom.com/15-best-video-editing-software/ but they suggest high end professional applications (which are costly as well). Can anyone suggest some alternatives?
Thanks in advance :D :)

Installing from Antergos iso after project ends
R

@Firespray It was still working. I installed Cinnamon the other day but you have to uncheck printing support and it will install. You can install CUPS and some other required printer packages after. KDE should install as it was the one i had installed numerous times. Hopefully the devs are going to put out update files before shutting it down to remove Antergos stuff. I didn’t have to uncheck printing support for KDE at the time but not sure now. It may be the same case as Cinnamon.

Nieznany powód padnięcia systemu.

Ja też mam problemy z systemem, jakiś haker włamuje mi się ciągle do sieci, rozsyła mojej rodzinie fałszywe linki javascript, aby inwigilować naszą sieć. Wszędzie się loguje za mną tam gdzie ja, używając umyślnie mojego imienia, moich nicków z innych stron, aby tak mi dokuczać i uprawia w ten sposób stalking. W ogóle nie boi się policji. Jest za jakimś proxy lub vpn i czuje się bezkarny, spędziłem miesiące aby go dopaść na razie wiem tyle, że jego prawdziwy nick to LordSpamer, imię to Jacek lub Tomek, szlaja się po wykop i interi, czateri. Lubi nadużywać wykrzykników w swoim pisaniu…!!. , chyba jest z okolic Wrocławia lub Krakowa. Na co dzień prawdopodobnie zajmuje się spamowaniem różnych forum i w ten sposób zarabia. Także może i tobie on popsuł system.

Какие настройки произведены разработчиком Antergos для pamac-aur???
V

Здравствуйте!
Меня интересует, какие настройки произведены разработчиком Antergos для pamac-aur, так как сборка пакетов из AUR ИМЕННО в Antergos производится в РАЗЫ быстрее, чем на ЛЮБОМ другом арч-линуксе.
Например:
Google Chrome собирается в pamac-aur Antergos за 30 секунд против 3-х минут на других арч-дистрах.
PhpStorm собирается в pamac-aur Antergos за 3 минуты против 15-ти минут на других арч-дистрах.
Буду признателен за какой-то небольшой и понятный мануал.
Спасибо.

    @joekamprad, @just: thank you for your replies.

    @joekamprad: I did not know that “gnome-shell-extension-status-menu-buttons” is outdated, so I will look for an replacement. However, until now, I did not have problems with it!

    @just: thank you for your extensive answer!

    Regarding the two groups of packages, I think we were saying the same thing differently. The first group of five packages is indispensable for Antergos (with the exception of antergos-midnight-timers, which is not essential) , so it should be removed for Antergos to become Arch (in the context of Antergos termination). The second group of packages is not essential for Antergos and what I meant is that they can be kept in an Arch system after removing the first group of packages (and remove them later one by one).

    My concern was that, as I will be missing one month for summer holidays, I should not find a broken system when I come back if Antergos-repo disappears meantime. Or, if the system is broken, I should know how to repair it (I am new to Linux and I use it now for my work so it must work every morning!).

    Regarding the other issues you mentioned, I can’t say much other that I am a minimalist and I do not have much time now to play around with icons, themes, wallpapers, before learning more about Linux: if it works, it’s fine for me; in the future, I will certainly find time to look at those too.

    I agree with you about AUR and I also have only a few packages installed from there. Why don’t you like Grub 2 and what do you use instead?

    I conclusion I guess I will wait to see what update the developers give us for the Antergos to Arch transition, but if for some reason I do not like that update, I will uninstall the first group mention in my previous post to make the transition to Arch, but only after the Antergos repo goes offline (now that I have set it to the lowest priority). Later then I will look at what I want to uninstall from the second group.

    If you fail to plan you plan to fail…

  • Hello Asif & Community,

    same problem on my side…

  • @new2antrgs Hi,
    your post is very clear, well structured and organized. It’s a pleasure to readt it and to respond. But in the future, please, try to not make many questions in one post only. Be concise and precise. One post - one question. A forum isn’t a best place for long answers and explanations.

    Answers below depend much on personal tastes. Below are only my very personal thoughts. Most people will probably disagree with them.

    A few preliminary notes.

    I don’t like Antergos apps, shell and icon themes, wallpapers, settings, customizaations, so remove most of them right after a fresh ANtergos installation.

    I hate and never use Grub 2, so Grub2-related stuff is also immediately removed.

    As @joekamprad said, gnome-shell-extension-status-menu-buttons is utterly outdated, so it is removed time ago. As for Gnome 3 in general, my personal rule of thumb is to never use distro-specific, preinstalled gnome-shell extensions. They aren’t updated as quickly as those from Gnome 3 site. They aren’t maintained well by distro devs. Sooner or later they become obsoleted and start to work badly. An easy rule for myself is - remove preinstalled gnome-shell extensions asap and install them from Gnome 3 site. Only those that I really need.

    I try to minimize the number of pkgs built from AUR to an indispensable bare minimum. AUR pkgs are not reliable. I try to not exceed from 3 to 5 of them.

    To your questions now.

    You have isolated 2 pkg groups very well. But unfortnately you have inverted groups meanings :-) .

    The first group (5 pkgs) should be kept, imho. Installed Antergos won’t work without them.

    For me, the second group (9 pkgs) may be removed. Most of them, maybe all, aren’t needed for Antergos to work.

    Before going further, this is my actual situation with [antergos] repo pkgs in Antergos Cinnamon. This Cinnamon is young, it was installed in 2014.04 and never re-installed since then. An older native Arch installs run here without re-installations since 2008.

    I added a very short comment to the right of every pkg. A comment is preceeded by the <–.

    My [antergos] pkgs are these ones.

    $ date +"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S" && yaourt -Q | sort | grep antergos/ 2019-06-24 12:46:34 antergos/antergos-alerts 18.9.9-1 (antergos-base) <-- for reboot notification antergos/antergos-alpm-hooks 1.1-1 (antergos-base) <-- for reboot notification antergos/antergos-keyring 20170524-1 (antergos-base) <-- repo can't be used without it antergos/antergos-mirrorlist 20180830-2 (antergos-base) <-- where to get pkgs from antergos/gksu 2.0.2-7 <-- for gksu antergos/libgksu 2.0.12-9 <-- for gksu antergos/light-locker-settings 1.5.3-1 <-- never used it antergos/package-query 1.9.r380-3 <-- system pkg antergos/pamac 7.3.4-1 <-- it's pamac; nothing to say about it $

    Your groups (pkgs) follow.

    Pkgs that should be removed (5):
    Wrong, imho. Pkgs that should be kept.

    antergos-alerts <-- for nice reboot notification antergos-alpm-hooks <-- for reboot notification antergos-keyring <-- repo is unusable without it antergos-midnight-timers <-- don't know what is it antergos-mirrorlist <-- where to get Ant pkgs from

    Pkgs that can be kept (9):
    Wrong, imho. Pkgs that could be removed.

    antergos-desktop-settings <-- throu away Ant customizations antergos-gnome-defaults-list <-- get rid of Ant customizations antergos-wallpapers <-- wallpaps I use are way better gnome-shell-extension-status-menu-buttons <-- use official Gnome3 ext instead grub2-theme-antergos <-- no need in stuff of the stupid Grub 2 numix-frost-themes <-- worst icons in existence numix-icon-theme <-- idem numix-icon-theme-square <-- idem nvidia-installer <-- for lazy Nvidia users

    What [antergos] pkgs I use in other Arch systems? On the fly, I’d say only two:

    Yaourt. I’m too lazy to install it by other means. [antergos] serves it gratis.

    Gksu. After 20 yers in Linux it’s too difficult to get rid of the habit to use it.

    Please, remember, these are only my very personal settings. There are zillion reasons to disagreee with them.

    Good luck
