Hello I’m a relatively new user to Linux and absolutely new to Antergos. Thought maybe a new user’s perspective will be appreciated.
There are a few things that caught my eyes negatively and they are:
Cnchi (the installer of Antergos in the live USB) gives the user an option to read a “help” page about managing partitions (just before the partitions window) but after a minute or so, that page freezes, as in, it’s impossible to scroll or even select text.
I had to delete my other Linux partition. The installer said “you already have 3 primary and 1 extended so you cant create a new partition from your free space” or something like that. I think I’ve seen “you already have 4 primary partitions” as well.
Why is this limit there? I had enough free space but couldnt create anything out of it.
EDIT: This is solved/explained here: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/7781/sorry-you-already-have-4-primary-partitions-created/20
On choosing root password I was even angered because it did not allow me to create a short password! Shouldn’t this be my choice? If the installer believes it’s unsafe to use a short password, let it inform the user, not force him!
It would be nice to have some kind of previews for the desktop environments before installing them.
What is the default DE in the live usb? It’s ugly and very hard to use/understand. Right clicking tabs doesn’t work as expected etc.
Encountered even bigger problems. Please see 3rd post below.
