We are just about ready to move MATE 1.14 packages into the main antergos repo. However, in order for existing users who installed their systems more than a month ago to receive the updated packages automatically, the priority of the antergos repo must be changed in
/etc/pacman.conf. We’ve created a special package to handle this change for those affected users to make it as quick and painless as possible. Though it will still require some manual action from the user.
We would like to have a few people test the new
antergos-repo-priority package to ensure everything is okay before we release it to everyone. The package is currently in the
antergos-staging repo. If you are not familiar with how to install packages from the staging repo, see this wiki article.
What To Look For:
- After installing the package you should be presented with a desktop notification, a terminal notification, or (most likely) both notifications. Let us know if you do not see any notification.
- As the notification advises, you should review
/etc/pacman.conf.pacnewand verify that everything looks okay before replacing your
/etc/pacman.confwith the new version.
- You can easily identify what was changed in the new file using the diff command in the terminal or if you prefer using a non-terminal diff viewer, here’s a free web application that you can use by simply copy/pasting the contents of both files into the app.
Thanks in advance to anyone who finds the time to test this package for us!
