• Fresh Install with Mate broken


    I installed fresh with the minimal iso and LAN today. The mate desktop is broken.
    Just a black line at the top.

    I make things work…

  • @izznogooood Did you happen to save the installer log? It’s in tmp/cnchi.log

    No, I rebooted straight into Ubuntu to update grub. (And I just checked)

    I managed to install Gnome and it shows me this when trying to reinstall mate:

    Maybe this can point you in the right direction.
    I cant change my locals from Gnome, but that might be an Arch thing ;). I really want to like Antergos and this is my 3rd attempt! I just cant catch a break with your system. Last time I had to go with defaults just to get through the installer, I finally got that to work with your minimal ISO. (Keyboard choice page is blank during install though).

    I wanted mate so could have something to build on, but ended up with heavy gnome anyway :D.

    The plan was to get Unity up and running (but now with gnome i suspect there will be conflicts) …

  • @izznogooood

    cant change my locals from Gnome

    Can you be more specific here?
    Now, about your main topic: Is your Gnome installation new? Is the Antergos repo (Antergos Repo Priority) listed first?
    https://antergos.com/wiki/system-admin/package-management/antergos-repo-priority/
    From what I can see you pulled the mate packages from the community repo, not the Antergos one. That s why they were downgraded to v. 1.12 instead of the Antergos-maintained v. 1.14.
    I tested it and what I get back is 2 repo sources to choose the packages from: Antergos repo & Community repo.

    1.Antergos Linux KDE plasma / Gnome 2.Ubuntu 17.10 64bit Unity
    Intel Core2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26GHz‖ RAM 3908 MiB ‖ Dell Inc. 0F328M - Dell Inc. Latitude E6500
    Intel Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics [8086:2a42] {i915

  • I can deal with the locals later.

    Yes the gnome installation is new and doen from a terminal (ctrl-alt-F2) as the mate desktop was broken. “sudo pacman -S gnome gnome-extra”

    I did not touch the repos, the install did all this. I just choose mate (among the other options) and the installer does the rest. (I also chose the community repo´s in the same installer)

    When mate did not work i tried to reinstall it. And if you look it does not actually do anything. This command takes 2sec and jus prints out the dependancies issues.

    I just followed the installer and booted up a broken system.

  • So, If I m getting you right, you opened a tty screen (ctrl-alt-F2) and installed gnome to your already installed mate(which was unusable), right?
    If this is so, did you uninstall mate before reinstalling it? Have in mind that mate DE is no longer maintained in Arch, so the Antergos team took the step to maintain it themselves
    It seems that trying to install mate via the community repoyou got it dowgraded to 1.12 (unmaintained Arch repo packages) from your already installed 1.14 version which are in the Antergos repo, leading to unresolved dependencies between the two versions.
    If you want to try again, make sure that the Antergos repo is listed before all others, NOT at the end of all others. If this is ok, then the mistake should be your choice to select the community repo. What has to be selected is the Antergos repo.
    Here is what it looks like in my terminal (greek to you but you can make it out):no_mouth: :

  • Move to a new topic if need be but I have a similar issue:

    I updated pacman.conf to move Antergos above core, did an update and it loaded the new 1.14 version of Mate.
    What is missing is the Menu button in the upper left corner of the top panel.

    Here is a listing of pacman.log:

  • @anarch said in Fresh Install with Mate broken:

    So, If I m getting you right, you opened a tty screen (ctrl-alt-F2) and installed gnome to your already installed mate(which was unusable), right?

    Yes.

    If this is so, did you uninstall mate before reinstalling it?

    No, I was unaware I had to do that.

    Have in mind that mate DE is no longer maintained in Arch, so the Antergos team took the step to maintain it themselves

    That’s great!

    It seems that trying to install mate via the community repoyou got it dowgraded to 1.12 (unmaintained Arch repo packages) from your already installed 1.14 version which are in the Antergos repo, leading to unresolved dependencies between the two versions.
    If you want to try again, make sure that the Antergos repo is listed before all others, NOT at the end of all others. If this is ok, then the mistake should be your choice to select the community repo. What has to be selected is the Antergos repo.

    I understand what you are saying, i did some research and see pacman chooses the packages from the repo thats listed first if there are duplicate packages. The only problem is I did not touch the repos, I just installed with the minimal ISO.

    # Repository entries are of the format:
    #       [repo-name]
    #       Server = ServerName
    #       Include = IncludePath
    #
    # The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and
    # uncommented to enable the repo.
    #
    
    # The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
    # repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately
    # after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.
    
    #[testing]
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    [core]
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    [extra]
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    #[community-testing]
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    [community]
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    # If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
    # enable the multilib repositories as required here.
    
    #[multilib-testing]
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    [multilib]
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    
    # An example of a custom package repository.  See the pacman manpage for
    # tips on creating your own repositories.
    #[custom]
    #SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
    #Server = file:///home/custompkgs
    
    [antergos]
    SigLevel = PackageRequired
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
    

    So using the installer to install mate DE will fail every time until someone modifies the installer to put antergos repo first, right?

    I will give this a go later tonight. Thank you again ;).

    Here is what it looks like in my terminal (greek to you but you can make it out):no_mouth: :

    We have an expression in my country that states: Now your talking greek. Which basically means you dont understand what the other person is talking about. I surely did not expect it to actually be greek ;). But yes, i get it.

    I really have no idea why this has happened. The installer seems to have downloaded and installed the correct Mate version. On the other hand, you will have to modify your pacman configuration file yourself as instructed here:
    https://antergos.com/wiki/system-admin/package-management/antergos-repo-priority/
    In short, to replace your current file located at /etc/pacman.conf with the modified version located at /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew.
    A thing I don t know, since your installation is new, is if you have the latter. Can you find it?
    If you can, you can merge them using:
    sudo mv -f /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew /etc/pacman.conf

    Well, I m well aware of this expression and that s why I used it in the first place. I m half greek, half irish.:wink:

    I forgot to mention here yesterday I submitted a pull request to fix the issue of the Antergos repo not being up top automatically.

    Since the version isn’t pushed run the following after cnchi has finished updating itself and you’ve closed cnchi.

    sudo pacman -S git
    sudo rm -rf /usr/share/cnchi
    git clone https://github.com/Antergos/cnchi --depth=1
    cd cnchi
    ./run
