Issues related to Antergos installation.
Windows 10 dual boot
L

I was able to install a new HDD and dual Windows 10 and Antergos using the instructions for dual booting Manjaro 16 I linked below. These instructions use GPT not MBR… I used rufus (using the GPT partition scheme) to create by bootable Antergos USB stick.

There are a few differences though, once completed, the instructions say you will boot into Manjaro (or Antergos in this case), and have to update GRUB. My HP laptop would not, it goes right into Windows 10 unless I hit the ESC key during boot up and select Antergos. It works for me, I’m not familiar enough with UEFI to screw around with the bootmanagers, bootmenu…

@sophos1977
Did you add #!/bin/bash at the beggining of the file?
If not, you’ll need to add the line above.
Add please your script here (if is short) for us to take a look.

Cursor Theme

@just So your advice help me get it working but I went about it a bit different. :)
All I did was created a “default” folder in ~/.icons, logged out and in and all is working. Strange huh? I need to try and reboot and see if it takes.
But thanks for the help. Will post back if it doesn’t work after reboot.

Follow-up to my last reply…after rebooting it didn’t work so I followed your advice as you suggested and NOW all is working well. Thanks again!

MacBook Air mid 2012 sound issue (?)
H

I’ve been searching for this on both duckduckgo and here in the forum (and Arch wiki) but not found anything really useful.

So the issue is that the maximum volume of my left stereo speaker is like 10%. I got this laptop second hand and replaced macOS with Antergos the minute I opened the lid. That said I have not tried the speakers before.

When I have the balance in the middle I can only hear the right speaker, if I shift the balance all the way to the left I can barely hear any sound. If I push up the volume beyond 100% the volume doesn’t raise but the sound from the left speaker becomes distorted. If I shift the balance back a little towards the center so that the right channel is at 10% the volume is equal… Equally low, that is.

When I plug in headphones the balance is just fine… So I don’t know if this is a hardware or software issue. I’ve read that some weird issues can arise with pulseaudio, which is what seems to be in use.
