• Antegos KDE new instalation - unable to get login after boot


    Hi,

    I am a newbie to antergos. i have installed KDE successfully, however upon booting i am not getting login screen. Instead i am getting blank screen with blinking cursor.

    I was asked in IRC for systemctl lightdm status which shows lightdm failed.

    Then i was instructed to uninstall and reinstall lightdm. However i am not able to do that due to dependebcy issue.
    I dont know what do afterwards.
    Any help to solve this is appreciated.

    They were fooling you. Blinking cursor on a blank screen means that display manager fails to start. No systemctl is needed to find it out.

    Please, share the full output of

    inxi -Fxxc0
    
  • @just inxi:command not found

  • sudo pacman -Sy inxi
    
  • well it seems something went wrong so lets investigate a bit…

    1. You can see Grub Menu?

    IF Yes --> then from Grub you can boot to terminal by editing the grub menu and adding number 3 at the end of your boot kernel parameters line
    for example -> linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=26dfcc2f-41e4-4c70-a2a9-ae62100ddf61 rw quiet pcie_aspm=off elevator=deadline 3

    1. if you manage to boot to root now you can reinstall everything you want and you can use even --force option .

    2. Edit your lightdm conf file nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
      make sure that everything looks ok
      for example check if -> user-session=plasma

    3. Most of the times the blinking cursor is something messed up with graphic drivers or xorg configuration so you either need to generate a new xorg or install the correct drivers but if you say is something with the login screen I will stop here.

    Thats it for now , good luck!

  • I don’t find anything like pcie_aspm=off elevator=deadline 3 after quiet in grub menu entry, it has something like resume=uuid=

  • Is this installer fault or something else. To install itself i made 7 failed attempts before getting this. But no use. I think i have wasted my time and around 20gb of my data for this piece of crap. Also no one is giving proper solution

    It is the fresh install then this might be installer problem. Why not give a proper update so that newbies like me not suffer

  • Edit your lightdm conf file nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    make sure that everything looks ok
    for example check if -> user-session=plasma

    I didn’t find user-session=plasma in lightdm. Conf file

  • Please:

    1. Run live Antergos session from the live media
    2. Open terminal
    3. Run two commands
      sudo pacman -S inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      
    4. With the mouse, select (mark) the second command, as it was typed in, and its full output, including the final empty bash prompt $
    5. Press Ctr+Shift+C to copy selection into the clipboard
    6. Open Chromium
    7. Start replying to this post
    8. On an empty line in the reply, type in three backticks ``` characters
    9. Place the cursor on an empty line below three backticks
    10. Press Ctrl+V to paste in the clipboard’s content
    11. Place the cursor on an empty line below the pasted text
    12. Type in three backticks ``` chars again
    13. Send the post
  • I am having minimal iso. So i have taken screen shot how to attach here

    need to generate a new xorg

    this is not needed, only to tweak graphics!

    Edit your lightdm conf file nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    Also not needed as it should work as it is… you can choose session for installed DE inside the greeter (LogonScreen)

    I do not want to step on your feet, but less is more ;)

    If you have any other Linux installed, you may install and run inxi from within it.

    1. Debian

      sudo apt-get refresh && sudo apt-get install inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      

      or, which is the same

      sudo aptitude refresh && sudo aptitude install inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      
    2. openSUSE

      sudo zypper refresh && sudo zypper install inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      
    3. Fedora

      sudo dnf refresh && sudo dnf install inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      

      or, which is the same

      sudo yum refresh && sudo yum install inxi
      inxi -Fxxc0
      
    4. Mageia

      sudo urpmi.update -a && urpmi inxi
      inxi Fxxc0
      

    inxi returns hardware info in a human-readable form. It doesn’t depend on a distro.

  • I am having windows 10 please tell me windows command

    OMG. WinXP was the last WindOS I’ve used. I suspect that WindOS doesn’t have anything similar to inxi.

    If possible, try to download and use the full Antergos ISO instead of minimal.

  • @Kowshik I was suspecting that you have an Optimus computer. Apparently, it is not.

    inxi reports are much easier to interpret than WindOS info.

    I’m out of ideas, for now.
