• Can't login after fresh Antergos installation


    I just did a fresh install of the latest Antergos with Cinnamon DE. Unfortunately I can’t login after the installation. I’ve tried to install GNOME, in case it might be a Cinnamon related problem, but without success. I have Linux Mint installed on the same drive and I share the home partition with it. Might it be that it conflicts with some configuration file of Mint? Problem is that when I enter the password and hit enter the login screen fades out to then reappear with the password request.

    I am on Mint now, so please tell me which System specs you need. I will go back into Antergos and post them here, if needed!


  • not good to mix the configs between different distro with different versions of software…

    also some keyfiles e.t.c. will caus problems, better to bind folders to different home directory (pictures, documents, videos) so you can have different configuration files e.t.c.

    this can simple be done after install inside fstab

    UUID=from mint homepartition	/mnt/data      ext4    defaults        0 5
    /mnt/data/pictures	/home/antergosuser/pictures	auto	bind	0 0
    /mnt/data/documents	/home/antergosuser/documents  auto    bind    0 0
    /mnt/data/video	/home/antergosuser/video  auto    bind    0 0
    /mnt/data/music	/home/antergosuser/music  auto    bind    0 0
  • Thanks for the quick reply! I tried to uncomment the home partition in fstab, but it doesn’t seem to be the problem. What else could it be?

  • what do you try?

    i think you will need a new installation or tinkering from within the files to get a new home folder for ANtergos… if you do not want to clean away the config files inside mint home…

  • Yes it worked! Thank you :)

  • I have these messages on boot. Is it something dramatic?


    Plus Xorg doesn’t start when I use the Nvidia driver. But I think I have to open a new topic for this, right?

  • i think there is something bad happens with the last kernel, they push also an update today i think… so may try to update system before doing more on that…

  • Does this also apply with the LTS Kernel? I am on LTS.

    Plus your binding tip did not work completely. I have to manually enter a password to mount the partition. I can’t access the data even after entering the password. Nothing shows up in my Antergos home directory. Could it be that the names are different, because my system is in German?

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

    Problem is that even when I mount the home partitition manually, I can’t see any files.
