    can i do offline install of antergos? or perhaps less download during install? does it download the gnome desktop as well even though it is present?

    No, you can’t.

    or perhaps less download during install?

    Only by not installing any additional software. It’s almost nothing compared to the main download.

    does it download the gnome desktop as well even though it is present?

    Yes, it does. Cnchi downloads full Gnome DE. Installer includes only a minimal set of Gnome software.

    One thing that can somewhat help is to do the Base (minimal) install. It contains no desktop, and thus needs to download less stuff.

    I just measured, the occupied size of a Base install is 2.3 GB, and install with Xfce takes 4.5 GB, both sizes are what they take after the installation.
    You may install your favorite desktop later.

    I didn’t measure the download sizes however, but it should much less with the Base install.

    Hi!
    Just to add something to @just answer; you can install Portergos which has an offline installer (not as userfriendly as cnchi). After install you can install whatever Antergos package you want since it uses Arch + Portergos + Antergos repositories.

    Yesterday it gave a new life to an old pc here, arch based distros are so fast.

    They’re about 600.800 M for Gtk DEs and about 900M for Kde.

  • @just
    Do you have a figure for the Base install?
    Or how did you measure the download size?

    No, I didn’t measure it for Base install.

    Or how did you measure the download size?

    Simply by opening System Monitor in Live session before starting Cnchi, and observing the total download size. I posted the results with System Monitor’s screenshots for Mate, Cinnamon, Kde, Gnome in the forum at the beginning of 2015, but cannot find this post now.

  • @just
    Ok, thanks, I’ll test it here. :)

  • Base install download size is 440 MB.
