Please first check extensions, as they give errors, may not compatible with latest gnome shell.
I do also see screensaver settings failures… So try to switch to gdm would be a good try too, as you will see if this solve the blacking.

Install Plasma 5

antergos-kde-meta works great, but be aware of this: It’s only gonna help you to install the packages. They won’t be uninstalled when you remove antergos-kde-meta. Thus it’s a good idea to take note of all the packages installed. Otherwise it can be quite a pain in the ass to remove kde from your system in the future.

Issues related to the MATE desktop.
Desktop and Caja not working anymore
F

@retronostalgia said in Desktop and Caja not working anymore:

When updating packages today it looked like a bunch of MATE packages (though not any of the Antergos caja- ones?) got updated. I removed the libexempi symlink workaround, updated, rebooted, and everything looks fine - it seems like the workaround is no longer needed.

Anyway, glad this issue seems to be fixed!

I wonder how you actually removed your symlink!? After reading your comment today I unlinked my symlink like this:

sudo unlink /usr/lib/libexempi.so.3

and had the same blank desktop issue with Caja again. My system is up to date.
Cause I am new to Antergos I wonder if I did something wrong?

Issues related to the Xfce desktop.
in XFCE, install ring-daemon-git, ring-gnome-git or ring-kde-git

@joekamprad Thanks, joekamprad. I thought XFCE had some connection to one or the other (gnome or kde), but I couldn’t remember which.

Issues related to the Openbox window manager.
sistem setting not run on fresh install of antergos openbox
T

Thanks @joekamprad!
I really like using lightwight wms and openbox is mostly my choice for the past 2 years. Its easy to use my config on different machines and OSs thats really comfortable :).

Dunno how the current status of openbox integration in Antergos looks like but I can provide some of my scripts and tweaks. E.g. for politely closing windows when session is closed. Think I will inspect the meta port soon but I dont like some preinstalled features like plank ;).

Update on antergos-common-meta 1.5-1 have weird result
E

I’ve made a second attempt:
-Font is still weird and after I select another one nothing seems to happen on deeping application (File Manager, etc) and only on gtk applications;
-Changing the icon pack is now present but has no effect at all on the toolbar and only only (again) on gnome applications like evolution;
