• Antergos running accidentally :)


    Guys, I still can not believe in what I see. I’ve attached my spare ssd drive via usb to the old Windows 10 netbook (Lenovo ideapad S210 touch), and booted by accident. It contained some old Antergos installation, coming from my Asus laptop, not in use for over a month. Would you believe it started with no error message? Installing updates right now. :)

  • Amazing😀. I wish you the best of luck!

    If it has happened to me with old versions of antergos, which does not mean that it is ideal (you know it ;)), but mine was not an accident …

    Another thing: @piotr I really like your work desk, with all the machines !!!

  • I’m also surprised that the updates are all going smoothly. And what DE are you using? Gnome? Because if that’s the case, it would warrant an even bigger surprise since they have come out with Gnome 3.26 since you last booted your laptop it sounds like…

    Exactly: Gnome, and everything went well. Shame that I need the disk for a temporary Ubuntu installation. :(

    Haha! Thanks! I’d do with a bigger one :) 5 different units ATM, if you count the Chromebook.

    You have a chromebook? Have you ever tried installing Antergos on it? I’m only curious because I have a friend that owns one, but I don’t know whether or not to recommend Antergos to him for a laptop with only 16GB and 2 RAM. If you happen to know anything that might help, I would highly appreciate it😀.
    Thanks!

    In most cases it should be possible, and many people install Linux on their Chromebooks. However, my Asus C201PA has a Rockchip processor on board, so I didn’t even try. And to be honest I don’t do with my Chromebook much more than reading in bed. :) It’s also useful while boring meetings: allows to browse the Antergos forum, and look as if you were making notes. ;)

    Love it😄. And thank you for the advice. Until now, no one had any opinions, suggestions, or feedback to offer me at all. Thank you.

    My wife’s Acer Chromebook R11 would be much better to install Arch on it, but she uses it all the time, so I had no opportunity. By the way: the touch screen works very well with Antergos, at least on this funny netbook I mentioned in OP. Even my game is easy to play on it. R11 would be even better, as it’s convertible, and one can fold it as a tablet.

  • Good to know! Thank you so much for the advice @piotr😀.

    Hmmm… interesting. I’ll certainly keep that in mind. Thank you.

    Yes. The touch support in Antergos is phenomenal! I’d even compare it to Windows 8/10 touch support. Especially in browsers like Chrome or Gnome Web (Epiphany), it works great. I use it on my laptop called Lenovo X220 Tablet Laptop which has a screen that folds down to be like a tablet. I use touch support on it all the time!
