• Things to do after installing antergos


    is there any specific things we should do after installing antergos? for example if you google you will found that there are at least 10 necessary things to do after installing OS such as Ubuntu or Fedora specially for laptop to extend its battery life .

  • You can create a wiki page with good apps/packages to install after a clean install is made if you want?

  • probably depends on your needs. there isnt much tweaking i do besides download and install my fav apps.

  • I have never given any credit to “ten commandments” must-have lists. IMHO, you must have what suits your needs, preferences and likes…:smile:
    Not abad idea to have suggestions, solutions, workarounds in put together in some place, though…

    1.Antergos Linux KDE plasma / Gnome 2.Ubuntu 17.10 64bit Unity
    Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26GHz‖ RAM 3908 MiB ‖ Dell Inc. 0F328M - Dell Inc. Latitude E6500
    Intel Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics [8086:2a42] {i915

  • One of the 1st things I install is a backup utility. My favorite is sbackup,
    Bleachbit to clean out the cruft the browser(s) leave behind (e.g. macromedia/flash).
    gnome-disk-utilty so I can monitor my drives’ health and write down before I forget the actual partition locations.
    I remove Chromium and install Firefox, just a personal preference, not a recommendation
    Since I have a mouse with multiple buttons I install,
    xbindkeys
    xdotool
    xautomation
    I believe anyone who has been around any linux distro(s) can pretty much tell what they need to install.

  • @herbie i my self remove the chromium and installed opera :D and i think antergos is really a good to go system and only the distro that i easily installed my wifi card i think no need tweaking but after installation i have a weird things on my battery indicator that i found it in this link : https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/4329

    Most of those lists are the same thing over and over and can be applied to every distro. Such as laptop battery saving tools work on all distros. These articles are pure useless garbage just for get clicks because people love “top 10” lists for some reason. If anything at most these articles have 2 suggestions that are worth a crap.

    Valid point but applies to all computer systems. :)

    Unless you don’t use something based on GTK but overall not a bad idea.

    I remove Chromium and install Firefox, just a personal preference, not a recommendation

    Why did you install Chromium in the first place? Cnchi has support for installing Firefox instead of Chromium by default in the choices section.

    Opera is now based on Chromium so what reason do you do that? I am just curious.

  • First thing would to replace lightdm with sddm…copy-agent steam spotify playonlinux jdk intellij…remove all the social apps and install skype.

    Just personalizing really. I install xfce as a backup if Plasma wants to act up on me.

    that is interesting. Have you tried Vivaldi? It is suppose to be even faster. (also based on Chromium)
