• Can I migrate from Arch to Antergos without reinstalling?


    I’d like to ‘antergify’ my Arch (Parabola) install, how can I do that?

    1. Add antergos repository to /etc/pacman.conf
    [antergos]
    SigLevel = PackageRequired
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
    
    1. Create /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist file (this one is optimized for my location, but you can use it)
    Server = http://ftp1.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/antergos/$repo/$arch
    Server = http://softlibre.unizar.es/cinnarch/$repo/$arch
    Server = http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/repo.antergos.com/$repo/$arch
    Server = http://repo.antergos.info/$repo/$arch
    
    1. Update your system:
    sudo pacman -Syyuu 
    

    OK, now you have Antergos ;) If you want to setup your DE to look like we setup it, you must tell us which one are you using.

    Cheers!

  • @karasu Thanks! I’d like GNOME, logging into it automatically. Also Antergos’s GRUB and greeting screen after coming back from suspend.

  • Wow! That’s a lot of things :grinning:

    For Gnome, we install these packages:

            antergos-gnome-defaults-list
            baobab  
            bijiben 
            brasero
            cdrkit
            evince
            eog
            file-roller
            gedit
            gnome-backgrounds
            gnome-calculator
            gnome-calendar
            gnome-contacts
            gnome-control-center
            gnome-documents
            gnome-disk-utility
            gnome-font-viewer
            gnome-keyring
            gnome-logs
            gnome-maps
            gnome-music
            gnome-photos
            gnome-screenshot
            gnome-shell
            gnome-shell-extensions
            gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock
            gnome-shell-extension-status-menu-buttons
            gnome-sound-recorder
            gnome-system-monitor
            gnome-terminal
            gnome-themes-standard
            gnome-tweak-tool
            gnome-weather
            gvfs-mtp
            hicolor-icon-theme
            libgnomeui
            light-locker
            light-locker-settings
            nautilus
            network-manager-applet
            networkmanager-openvpn
            networkmanager-pptp
            orca
            pidgin
            seahorse
            totem
            transmission-gtk
            xdg-user-dirs-gtk
            xscreensaver
    

    First, install them and check that everything is working. Then, I’ll show you how to setup it to make it look as if it was installed by our installer Cnchi.

    Our grub theme is in this package: grub2-theme-antergos

  • Upon trying to update the system I got the error that the key could not be looked up remotely. When I tried pacman-key --init and pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos it told me that /usr/share/pacman/keyrings/antergos.gpg does not exist. How can I get it?

  • You must manually install antergos-keyring package first. Sorry I forgot about this.

  • @karasu Done! Packages installed. What now?

  • Gnome is just the DE that we haven’t yet created a package that setups it. As it is now, all setup is done by a script (or two, I don’t remember) that are run by Cnchi (Antergos Installer).

    You now should have a working Gnome. You’ll have to setup it by hand. We use numix icons and theme.

    I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.
