KDE mouse cursor lag.

I have several computers which I run Antergos gnome on, but my desktop that I use for video editing I use KDE, it uses less resources than gnome … When using Antergos KDE I get a terrible mouse/cursor lag that makes it unbearable to use so I have had to switch to Manjaro KDE which does not have this problem (so far). I would prefer to use Antergos, is there a fix for this problem?

No system sounds in cinnamon


one last final note to anyone who might want antergos with out the all the bloat of manjaro is to do a community released cinnimon edition , this edition has no blue tooth , no office app, or media players preinstalled just base system a lot like Antergos. I used this and installed the latest Firefox , VIC player , and steam , and they work flawlessly . The only downside to this is I had to figure out what to install for printer support but that was easy , I just compared files listed between the full and min install and searched for the printer drivers and installed them
was not that hard even for a Linux nooby like me .
Shame Antergos can not do the same , I really wanted this distro , seriously ! But manjaro came thru no Bluetooth pulse sound driver ! no wiggy pulse audio issues , steam works flawless , no wonder manjaro is #1 at distrowatch
As I said before and I hope someone in charge will read this , dump your current installer , beta software is unbecoming , but you keep using it , that is insane ( look up the deflation of “inane” keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results)

Simple Scan not recognizing scanner

I can scan, which is something I need to do, so that is a good thing! Why one app recognizes the scanner, and another doesn’t, bothers me from my Ogre geek perspective, and because I just don’t like it when I can’t get something working!!?! I will fiddle around with this, and hopefully post the resolution! Appreciate your positive response and support! As I have said elsewhere, this is one of the best forums I have been on (and I have been on a lot of them over the last 30+ years); you are one of the reasons for that!! Thanks!

XFCE4-terminal, stagger new windows?

Didn’t the terminal used to install in a fashion where a new window was about 100px down and 100px right of the top left corner of the pervious terminal? Currently my terminal windows spawn directly on top of one another, and I find it infuriating.

CPU load, fan speed and memory usage indicator for Tint2


Recently I came across a post on how to display CPU load in the Tint2 panel using python-psutil. As it’s a really simple and flexible solution, I thought I could add some more info to the executor:
