• \[SOLVED\] Installation Troubles


    Hi! I’m new to the whole Arch experience. I’ve used Ubuntu, and Elementary in the past. So I’m not a total newbie. I’ve been distro shopping lately, looking for something different from Ubuntu/Elementary, and I’ve come across a couple of different distros so far. One of them was Antergos. I downloaded it, tried it out, liked what I saw. I went to install it, and it got to 100% before giving me a Traceback error.

    I am running Windows 8.1, on an Acer Aspire laptop. I ran Antergos from a live usb flash drive. Is there any way to troubleshoot the Traceback error?

  • No, I was using the stable build. I’m downloading the testing build now, though.

  • Probably not the right section to ask this question, but once I install Antergos, is there a way to change desktop environments? I chose Xfce, but I’m kinda finnicky and like to change environments once in a while.

    They are in the official repositories, take a look to the wiki.

    pacman -S mate works for me
