• Black screen on UEFI installation


    @Otakami said in Black screen on UEFI installation:

    Ubuntu is great and all but I kind of question the “newbie friendly” claim.

    Same here. Everyone says that Linux Mint is so “user-friendly”, but I found it way more confusing than Antergos! (An Arch based distro which everyone says is NOT user-friendly. Guess I’ll have to disagree with them😄).

    My experience wasn’t bad because I still fell in love with linux regardless but it wasn’t what I expected at the same time.

    Again, same here. Mint wasn’t that great in my opinion, but it got me into the Linux world.

    What I fear from antergos or arch-linux is stability.

    Same here actually. I haven’t been using Antergos for long enough to really know how stable it is, but so far it seems pretty good. I suppose that is why so many people use Manjaro. I seriously considered it for awhile, but I really disliked how many programs they install by default, many of which I don’t even like that much! Thus, I went with Antergos, on which I could install the programs I wanted, rather than uninstalling those I don’t.

    Who doesn’t want to embrace the FOSS and secure mentality in an operating system too?

    That is probably my main reason for using Linux actually😄.

    Hey again! I just remembered that there is a package in the AUR called “downgrade”. This can reverse the effects of upgrading an application, and thus making it stable again. Here’s an article describing how to use it🙂. Due to Antergos’ awesomeness, only the steps after “Sample Output” are necessary.

    Hope this helps!

    This topic will help me with many things for a long time. Thank you once again!

  • Just glad to help!

  • That really was a lot to throw at you so suddenly…

    Heck no! It’s not like I have to memorize all of them anyway. You saved a lot of my time. It’s awesome =)
