• Antergos now recognized as Arch for some reason


    I’m not sure what even happened…I think the image is self-explanatory. This is definitely Antergos and it’s been Antergos up until the other day that I ran neofetch out of habit and saw this.

  • @thesano The image is self-explanatory indeed. Neofetch reads Antergos as Arch, which it essentially is. If you use Screenfetch it will give you the Antergos logo.
    Nothing wrong here. :sunglasses:

    Never to old to learn.

  • @axioma But Neofetch recognizes Antergos as Antergos on my other laptop I freshly installed Antergos on :neutral_face:

    This is my Neofetch screenshot.
    Not sure why it gives different results.

    Never to old to learn.

    Here’s my Neofetch on my second laptop which recognizes it as Antergos. But in any case, it’s not really an issue as you’ve informed me so I won’t worry about it anymore. Thanks!

  • @thesano Interesting.

  • Screenfetch also recognises Antergos at my laptop as Arch and I think that this happened when I started using multiple Desktop Enviroments at the same time.
    Now I only run plasma.

  • If you want to be sure, go to System - Info center. There you should be able to confirm that you are using Antergos.

  • System Information also shows Arch…

  • Like earlier posters said; nothing to worry about, I noticed that the information displays in random. Sometimes it’s called Antergos, sometimes Arch, the most important thing is, that the system still rolls :wink:

  • Hello,

    The FAQ page on Neofetch’s Wiki has a section about downstream distros being detected as their upstream counterparts. Give it a read as it does explain why this happens.
