    UUID=84A42E27A42E1BE4 /home/data ntfs defaults, noatime 0 0

    I have a partition mounted from when I used Windows OS. It’s necessary because it contains code that I use on both OS. I mounted it to my /home but not /home/mattwong
    In fact, I remember setting it up to auto mount on login a few months ago.
    Will mounting it to root fix the issue?

  • Can you provide:

    cat /etc/fstab

    You do mount two partitions one to /home and one to /home/data both format is ntfs.

    So your users home is on ntfs what is not working for Linux.

    To get a partition available inside your users home better use bind inside fstab.

    This will bind this partition onto a folder under your usrs home directory.

    This will be done by mounting your data partition under /mnt/data and then bind it under /home/mattwong/data

    UUID=84A42E27A42E1BE4 /data ntfs defaults, noatime 0 0

    I set it to mount to root instead, and this is the result I get. 84A42E27A42E1BE4 is the UUID of the partition I want to mount, but I am unsure what 0737402862B6A0E8 is.

    Should I change the mount for 84A42E27A42E1BE4 to /mnt/data instead? I also don’t know how to bind it, though that’s not very important, as I can still access /mnt/data as a user it seems.

  • @mattwong
    What partition exactly you need to share with Windows? You should not mount it to /home.
    For example, you could mount the shared partition to /winshare, and make a symlink to /winshare.

  • sudo blkid -o list

    Would be informative

  • Show output of

    sudo blkid
    lsblk -fm
  • @manuel It’s a partition that contains documents, pictures, and code all of which I access between Windows and Antergos.

  • @mattwong
    The problem is the /home partition. It should not be in ntfs format. Does it have many files?

    Edit: I must go now, can continue after two days probably. Hope Joe and others can help you further.
    Maybe copying current /home contents to a /home folder in chroot mode helps. And fixing file and folder permissions in new /home.

  • /home has 19G used ;)

    … I am off for today…

  • @joekamprad @manuel

    Thank you both very much for your help. I can change the system type for /home if I want, as the bulk of the content on that is just archiving for the AUR clones I installed.

  • /home – partition /dev/sda9 UUID=0737402862B6A0E8 is created with installation to use as home or after installation of Antergos to mount something for your user?

    I would copy all data from /dev/sda9 (/home/mattwong) to another place to backup all needed configs and data + keys from your Antergos user, if you do not do this you will need to create a new user or will stay without all configurations to Desktop and used apps…

    If you have any external usb drive that have capacity to hold 20GB data use this to backup your /home/mattwong folder to it.

    then reformat /dev/sda9 with ext4, change /etc/fstab to new uuid and format …

    But you will need to do this from CLI or LifeISO botted, as you will be not able to use normal user and Desktop.

  • @mattwong
    If you have any doubts about how to backup and restore your current /home partition, feel free to ask. There are actually many things that can go wrong… 😅

  • @manuel Welcome back. I was actually wondering how important the /home settings really are in the first place, since when I installed Antergos, it wasn’t a mandatory partition. Is it because it would have created a /home on the same partition that I put the root on?

    @joekamprad Would it be ok to just compress the contents of the /home directory and store it on root?

  • @mattwong said in No audio:

    it would have created a /home on the same partition that I put the root on

    yes it is optional to have /home on its own partition, or as a folder on the same partition as / (system-root) [not users /root {admin}]

    If you have enough space under / you can do that compressing it or create a backup folder there and copy files as they are:

    mkdir /backup
    cp -R /home/mattwong /backup
  • @joekamprad I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with this. But the issue is that I have configurations that are causing problems.

    [[email protected] /]$ sudo cp -R /home/mattwong /backup
    cp: cannot stat '/home/mattwong/.config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu': Input/output error

    the main issue here is that I can’t view the .config file with dolphin or ls

  • @mattwong
    Is the target disk full? What does

    df -hT


  • @mattwong said in No audio:

    I can’t view the .config file with dolphin or ls

    all folders and files with a leading . like .config or .xauthority are hidden files.
    you need to enable show hidden files in settings /view for dolphin:

  • @manuel No, the target disk isn’t full. I think it’s because of the permissions again.

  • @mattwong Wierd. What does

    sudo ls -l  /home/mattwong/.config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu


    BTW probably better to back up with cp --archive (not saying this will solve the issue)

    Alternatively you could use rsync

  • @BlaiseD Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve now backed up my home directory in a folder under root. What’s the next step?
