Just to let you friendly people know, lightdm is now fixed. At least it is for me. After this update, it should also be fixed for you.
Work-around is quite simple, actually, and has been mentioned herein these forums for a while now by one or two other forum users.
The following information is posted only for those who are not familiar with a non GUI sign-in. For those who are not familiar, please do the following (For those who are familiar, please ignore this as you probably already know the procedure):
- When Antergos boots, select ‘e’ from your keyboard. ‘e’ is for editing purposes.
- Use your arrow keys to navigate down to the line where the last word is ‘quiet’. Select to navigate to the end of this same line with your arrow keys. Enter the SPACE key. Then input the following command onto this line:
systemd.unit=multi-user.target You will find that this same command is also listed at the bottom of your GRUB editing interface.
- Select F10 to save and boot into Antergos in a non-GUI interface. Other keys for usage are also listed near the bottom of your GRUB editing interface/menu.
- Antergos will now reboot for you to log in. Log in with your credentials.
- update your operating system with
sudo pacman -Syu. You will find that one of the updates to resolve the lightdm issue which has been plaguing us and many other users using lightdm throughout the world of Linux/GNU, is now available for download/install.
- Enjoy your Antergos :)
PS: I don’t care what your mamma told, you.
Linux is still Awesome!!!
Because with Wind0ze, you would still be perplexed on how to get your operating system back.
You couldn’t without a complete re-install!!!
