Bad two weeks for my antergos setup between lightdm, a desktop icon issue with Nemo and now upgrading the kernel (the first 4 months of antergos were flawless). Anyway, after upgrading the kernel, I can boot, login, then I get a black screen with a mouse cursor. All of the troubleshooting guides say execute an ALT+F1 sequence during boot and fix via command line (doable).

I don’t have a PC keyboard handy, so I need to execute ALT+F1 with a mac keyboard (shift, control, alt/option & command). I believe I installed antergos with either a ‘US English’ or a US ‘macintosh’ keyboard. I have tried every single combination of key sequences to get a TTY cursor.
