@lhb1142 Antergos , as it is relative to Archlinux itself is not Ubuntu not Manjaro and not Windows.
You will need to dig into Linux to make use of it.
Here at the forum for sure you will find posts where users failed to install, because if install went fine they do not ask at the forum.
There is a need to change some stuff inside install process, and it will be there allways, as system is changing every day… There was problems with cnchi lately, and it was causing failed installs… but Manjaro also failed to install: https://forum.manjaro.org/search?q=install failed
at this level, the discussion does not work.
thesis - antithesis - synthesis
and i do not see you are willing to get in to synthesis.

yay -S aur/chromium-widevine
to change to AUR version of widivine.
(what @Bryanpwo was sayin)
open chromium and type this url:
Override software rendering list - Enable
Enable GPU rasterization - Force enabled
To see if it is enabled/working:
The SNA acceleration method causes tearing on some machines. To fix this, enable the “TearFree” option in the driver by adding the following line to your configuration file:
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
and paste this
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "TearFree" "true" EndSection
save with [Ctrl+X]
It is apparent to me that the installation problem is solely with Cnchi. I’m afraid that nothing anyone can say can change my opinion of that, at least at the present time.
Then discussion is at a zero point for me here.
If you can provide logs from that failed installs, we could solve the issue, and this would make Antergos better working for you and others with similar hardware or similar installation wishes.
Community driven Distribution works by contributions and reports from the community to development and v.v.
The devs are fixing it and there’s also an offline installer in the pipeline. Just be patient, because of the number of developers.
I’m not sure, but I think an offline installer like Calamares would bring complications in the way Antergos offers the various DE’s during install and that is the feature that makes Antergos unique. I can imagine that the size of the ISO would be too large. Just take a look at Opensuse’s ISO that’s 4,7 GB and they “only” offer three DE’s (Gnome, XFCE and KDE) Imagine how big Antergos ISO would be, that can also be off putting for new users.
I’m not saying that your experiences are rare, you’re right there are users who have that experience, but you can’t blame the devs for trying to make Cnchi better after all that work they’ve put into it.
There are also a lot of users where Cnchi sails smooth, so they’re not totally in the wrong with it.
I don’t know if @fernandomaroto still is active on Antergos, but he had an offline installer that worked, only concentrating on XFCE and i3, but once installed you can install another DE if you like and deinstall XFCE.
