• From Arch to Antergos?


    Hi
    Now I have Arch Linux installed, with the CinnArch repos added. There is a way I can change my system to Antergos without re-installing? The steps detailed in the launch news to change from Cinnarch to Antergos are valid to my case?[/color:1k7v3z57]

  • Switch from Cinnarch to Antergos

    This is very simple to do.

    Install the packages “antergos-mirrorlist” and “antergos-keyring” like this:

    sudo pacman -U [http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x86_64/antergos-mirrorlist-20130427-1-any.pkg.tar.xz][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x8][1] … pkg.tar.xz

    sudo pacman -U [http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x86_64/antergos-keyring-20130427-1-any.pkg.tar.xz][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x8][1] … pkg.tar.xz
    Then, open your /etc/pacman.conf with your favorite text editor. Remove Cinnarch’s repos and write this new one on the bottom of the file:

    [antergos]

    SigLevel = PackageRequired

    Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
    You can now remove some packages with:

    sudo pacman -Rnsc cinnarch-mirrorlist hotot-data-git hotot-gtk3-git cinnarch-wallpapers cinnarch-keyring
    And install the new ones:

    sudo pacman -Sy hotot-gtk3 antergos-wallpapers
    If you want the complete transition, open /etc/os-release and change the content to this:

    NAME="Antergos"
    ID=antergos
    PRETTY_NAME=“Antergos"
    ANSI_COLOR=“1;34;40″
    HOME_URL=”[http://www.antergos.com/”][2]

  • Yes, it should work too

  • Does antergos-wallpapers package install any logos?? If so, where I can find it??

    I’m asking to change the Cinnamon menu logo. Or I should just download it?

  • I had Cinnarch Gnome installed and followup the steps mentioned in the news for converting my installation to Antergos.
    It doesn’t seems that all config has been set correctly because i created a new user (to check default desktop etc) and the wallpaper was completely white and default applications set in the “launch bar” wasn’t same as when i run the official live-cd ?

    Everything went fine when changing the repos to Antergos and updating all…

    Well, that’s understandable, you didn’t do a fresh install, so new configurations like that aren’t set in your skel directory to put it to your new users

  • It there a way to make the new skel the default one without re-installing ?

    I always like to follow the evolution of the distro “default setup”…

    And since i wan’t a rolling distro…

    You could boot the newest iso, mount your system in /install to chroot on it (that means mounting /, dev, proc and sys)

    Then execute the script /usr/share/cnchi/scripts/postinstall.sh with the parameters “user name”, “destdir”, “desktop”, “lang_code”

    For example:

    sh /usr/share/cnchi/scripts/postinstall.sh faidoc /install gnome es

    I think that could work

  • ok so if i understand well, there is no way of simply doing “pacman -Syyu” and some additionnal steps (without having to redownload an ISO) to get new default skel for users ?

    I also saw that the grub screen still has Cinnarch…

    Correct.

    The grub screen can be changed in /boot/grub/grub.cfg
