@Spewks You don’t need to install all the system again, just another DE, if this is really the problem.
Black screen instead of login screen
Hello, I just installed Antergos on a external hard drive.
But when I boot it, instead of a login screen there is just a black screen with visible mouse pointer.
I have the same problem.
It happens when using the nvidia-driver.
After deinstalling the nvidia-driver and using the nouveau-driver, everything is fine.
Funny about this is, that this problem out of a sudden, after using the nvidia-driver already for a while…
EDIT: I was able to fix it with this:
pacman -Syy nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-settings nvidia-libgl pacman -Rccn xf86-video-nouveau nvidia-xconfig
Black screen on login but your mouse works right ??
if so then you installed correctly. No worries. " Esc key " x2 or more really fast might get you into the desktop.
This happens with Lightdm - login manager as default with Gnome Desktop. Gnome needs GDM login manager.
Rescue mode and install GDM and enable " #systemctl enable gdm.service "
or resintall Antergos with MATE desktop - get that working. Then " install Gnome and GDM " then as /root or #sudo systemctl disable lightdm.service && sudo systemctl enable gdm.service
