First, I’m not really a newbie, I’m using plain ArchLinux for quite some time now and love it until now
That’s why I decided to put AntergOS on my fathers computer. He was using Kubuntu before but as I’m more familiar with Arch it’s easier for me to help him with any problems now. Furthermore, Kubuntu started to take up to much space imo (more than 15GB, without data, my arch installation with a lot of SDKs and dev tools like IntelliJ including the 4GB swapfile uses about 20GB, so I think a “normal” desktop linux shouldn’t use more than 15GB).
The installation process is really great, the devs made a great job there!
In general, AntergOS seems very nice for beginners to me, but there are some problems that disturbed that experience:
1. Sound wasn’t working on a fresh install. It worked fine during the installation so I didn’t really know what could cause this. Finally I found the solution somewhere in the archlinux forum: fluidsynth was the cause, more details here: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio#No_sound_after_installation]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu] … stallation (look for the fluidsynth part) Would be great if the workaround could be shipped by default. Or don’t install fluidsynth at all, I just uninstalled it because I saw no need for it.
2. Video/Audio playback broken: both, totem and xnoise played things way to fast, both without sound but in the timeline one could see that it plays like 4 seconds in the time of 1 second. I was to lazy to look for the cause and since xnoise isn’t actively developed anymore I just uninstalled both and installed VLC (works fine)
All in all, great work of course! This is just meant to be some helpful feedback!
