• Small issues, finally moved to Antergos/Arch


    I won’t lie. I tried Archanywhere first but had to give up as there were multiple issues with encryption.

    First of all, congrats. This was one of the most boring installs / configs I’ve ever done. Except for some different locations for certain cfg files it was mostly painless… (Which is a good thing!)

    Anyway, I migrated from Ubuntu and have some questions:

    1: The promt for the uncrypt password after GRUB is in plain terminal, could one do something about that?

    2: The lightdm theme is abit to much for me, is it possible to change it? (Not to GDM)

    3: The loading time from the login screen to the desktop (Grub) is 3-5 seconds, which is not a lot but 3-5 sec more than I am used to. This should not be a hardware issue as I am on an I7-7500U. Is there a way to shorten this down.

    4: I have the same problem I had in Ubuntu. When shutting down, a stop job hangs on autofs, I haven’t really looked inn to it but is this a common thing? I was thinking about making a script that stops/restarts the service at shutdown as a workaround.

    5: Ubuntu Gnome also had Auto Back light with the help of iio-sensor-proxy (I installed that via the AUR and tilting now works) but theres no setting for auto back light.

    6: QT, well… It looks horrible…

    7:The most painful thing of all how ever is the touch-pad. It registers every unintentional palm hit! I did some configurations for natural scroll and 2nd and 3rd button. But I would much appreciate a working palm detection!

  • 2: > you can change the DM to what you want to use… if it is only the design you can change to lightdm-gtk-greeter it has the optional package lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings where you can change theme e.t.c.

    $ sudo pacman -S lightdm-gtk-greeter lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings
    $ sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    

    change the line to:
    [Seat:]

    greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter

    Not that I know of. Do you know any distro/program that allows it? We could learn how to do it.

    3 (…)Is there a way to shorten this down.

    What does systemd-analyze blame return?

    I have autofs myself (connects to several nfs shares) and if I stop the server first, the client with autofs hangs. I haven’t found a solution for this one. (If I do not stop the server everything goes fine).

    Ubuntu has some sort of “theme”, 17.04 hides the chunky disk name as well.

    Hm… But would gnome wait until network is done to load?

    I have autofs myself (connects to several nfs shares) and if I stop the server first, the client with autofs hangs. I haven’t found a solution for this one. (If I do not stop the server everything goes fine).

    Then this should not be a problem… More time will tell.

    7:The most painful thing of all how ever is the touch-pad. It registers every unintentional palm hit! I did some configurations for natural scroll and 2nd and 3rd button. But I would much appreciate a working palm detection!

    for palm detection settings could you find some help here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Touchpad_Synaptics

  • 5: Ubuntu Gnome also had Auto Back light with the help of iio-sensor-proxy (I installed that via the AUR and tilting now works) but theres no setting for auto back light.

    Showed up after a reboot (iio-sensor-proxy i presume).

    I’ll have a look at that palm detection, as of default i can move the mouse with my pawn 😕
