I’d like to ‘antergify’ my Arch (Parabola) install, how can I do that?
Can I migrate from Arch to Antergos without reinstalling?
- Add antergos repository to /etc/pacman.conf
[antergos] SigLevel = PackageRequired Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
- 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
- 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.
Wow! That’s a lot of things
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.
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.
