@hezha said in Antergos not start:
@pudge thanks. but i’dont want to lose my files with reinstalling do you have any idea to reinstalling without losing my files, for exmaple my history and bookmarks from firefox?? i dual booted antergos with windows
joekamorad might still have an ace or two up his sleeve (sorry use of a colloquialism) that might get it back up and running. So don’t give up on that yet.
But IF it comes to reinstalling, Firefox bookmarks are in the following file:
History is in various files in the following directory
Again, if reinstalling becomes necessary, the easiest way would be to boot the computer from an Antergos Live USB stick and save data to yet another USB stick or an external drive of some sort.
The best way would be to save the entire contents of your home directory to an external drive or USB stick. Your home directory has all your app’s configurations stored in dotdirectories.
Thus you would be saving history from the .cache directory, firefox settings, bookmarks and etc from the .mozilla directory, your Music, Documents, Picture and other default directories, etc. Unless you are doing something out of the ordinary, your data files and the vast amount of configuration files should be in your home directory.
Then immediately after you reinstall the OS, copy all the files in your home directory backup to the new home directory. If it says that .mozilla directory already exists, tell it to replace it with backup file. Same for other directories. If all goes well, you should be very close to being as before.
