Okay I tried the
nvidia-installerpackage, is explained here:
But I ran myself into more issues
I started with testing
nvidia-installer -tfirst and after it was all green I went for the installation and it succeeds. After the reboot, the Desktop Manager no longer works and only a black screen with a marker are displayed.
I used tty2 and tried
-nbut none could complete so I removed the package and reboot but still stuck on that black screen.
The same hardware was working fine (Plug & Play without any configuration) but I stopped using the screen for a while (and many Kernel updates were done).
Now the screen is not working and even
xrandris not showing it.

The screen is VGA but the laptop is HDMI and there’s an adaptor in between (same setup wored fine previously).
What else should I check?
Your time is really appreciated! Thanks in advance.
Thanks @joekamprad ,
/etc/fstabwas already edited.
I jused edited
/etc/mkinitcpio.confand added the hooks, rebuilt (without errors), rebooted, but didn’t work.
I noticed this line in my
HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap filesystems fsck"
It was already there. Do I need to remove it? Or maybe just add resume to it?
This solved both 1 & 3. However ‘Plasma’ is still written in Arabic but it’s not a big deal.
Beside this, I would really appreciate if you could have a look at my issue here: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/9713/hibernation-doesn-t-function-properly
Initially my system language was Arabic by default (could be because of the region settings). I removed Arabic from Languages and from Formats. Yet, some areas are displayed/written in Arabic:
- Date and Time on Login screen
- “Plasma” name on Login screen (On the drop down menu)
- All Pacman messages, prompts, alerts, etc.
The rest of the system is correctly showing English.
Where can I check/update those? Arabic doesn’t appear anywhere in my settings.

I have done the following:
- Creating swap file on /swapfile with 19GB size
- Updated my kernel, added these 2 parameters:
- Applied changes using grub-mkconfig
Now I see the option of hibernation, but when I click on it, it just behaivs like ‘Switch User’. Takes me to login screen and the screen remains on.
Solved by editing modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
I now can see available wifi networks. Although I am still unable to access web but could be issue with my network. Will troubleshoot this later but at least I can see the networks now
