I’m sorry for the cryptic title, I’m not sure how to phrase it better.
I’ve downloaded yesterday (may, 29st) antergos, searching for an arch based liveusb distro. On the liveUSB things looked nice, qnd I decided to install. Here is where things started to get complicated:
- The wifi didn’t work properly. I understand that my wifi card is faulty and I solved this by placing
options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1in the file
- The installer version (cnchi?) version was
0.7.<somthing>and it stuck on the no wifi part though I had wifi launching it.
cnchi-devfailed due to
python-partedcollision. I solved this by removing both
I finally managed to install the OS. After starting it though, I had new problems
- wifi doesn’t work again. The fix didn’t work, though it might be possible I didn’t do this properly
- Brightness control doesn’t work properly. It did work well on the liveusb, but on the install, the response was slow and the brightness update froze for about 2 seconds between each key press. This problem occurs in Fedora as well, both in Gnome and Cinnamon desktop. It might be a GTK issue. I’m installing KDE to check this as I type this.
- The interface was in Hebrew, while Hebrew locals might be useful to me, I don’t want the interface to be Hebrew. I couldn’t find any place to chance this.
I guess I wish to update you about the installer problem (which from a conversation I saw someplace I guess you something about) , and I hope you could help me with the other issues. Can I test things via virtual box?
I’m tested the brightness issue both with KDE and Cinnamon with the same behavior. I guess Gnome is not to blame, but who is?
xbacklight set <number> seems to work better. There is a short lag of about quarter of a second which I’m not sure if it should exist or not. Sadly, it doesn’t update the brightness gui.
