@just Ok, understand all well, hope you will get retired soon.
Only the “Who wants to learn, will learn on their own.” part looks weird on a forum with a lot of people from i learned so much already.
But otherwise i know; at the end we have todo it by ourself.
Yes, Android, for the moment i am trying to get MaruOS (Android/Debian Jessie) on my Nexus phone. Maybe, when i get that working and find time and have collected the knowledge (will take one year more:-), i will try to get Antergos/Arch running in MaruOS.
But this is future thinking and also off topic.
@karasu Yes, thanks. And i have noticed that with the latest iso’s it’s not possible anymore to go thru the installer before the mirrors are up to date. With older installer (April 2017) it was possible without knowing that the mirrors where still updating. So, that’s a good thing!
My latest installation with the latest iso seams to give a message like; wait till the mirrors are updated.
While the notification “Cnchi is up to date” or something like that is already past before?
The message to wait is already good but:
Why are the mirrors not updated direct and then comes the message “Cnchi is up to date”?
@just Thanks, when i have time i will try the bumblebee wiki again out on a MBP.
When i get it working i will make a seperate wiki.
Which command line to check which CPU card/drivers are used at a moment?
Answers on the net aren’t working and giving me a xorg.conf isn’t existing or something like that.
Not an answer to your question but i have noticed that i only can install Antergos properly when i wait and don’t touch anything till Cnchi tells me that the mirrors are up to date. When i click the install button to early the installation goes mostly wrong. Don’t know that can help but that’s what i have noticed.
Latest install was so smooth, so no Cnchi issues for me for now.
But an auto NVIDIA Optimus card detection and then a possibility to choose to install Bumblebee instead of choosing only proprietary drivers could be a nice feature if possible at all.
And yes, when i also read the posts, the biggest problems seams to be dual boot and NVIDIA Optimus CPU card problems. Correct if i am wrong.
So, a Cnchi installer with NVIDIA Optimus card Bumblebee button and dual boot button will be very nice.
But that’s too complex and prune to break, so the wiki pages are a good option.
That’s why i will correct the MacBook Pro wiki page to the new installer.
Installation on a MacBook Pro with install of proprietary drivers works.
Installation on a MacBook Pro without install of proprietary drivers, and like mentioned in the Bumblebee wiki page, installing Bumblebee after doesn’t work.
So, installing Antergos on a MacBook Pro with proprietary drivers works out of the box.
But the Bumblebee wiki page was confusing me and i tried a clean install without proprietary drivers, and after install tried to install Bumblebee following the Bumblebee wiki page.
Then my system wasn’t working anymore, so again clean install.
Does somebody has running Bumblebee on a MacBook Pro with NVIDIA Optimus card and how?
Is Bumblebee and the Bumblebee wiki page not for MacBook Pro with NVIDIA Optimus card?
MacBook Pro with Optimus Intel + NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GPU’s
I am back on track after a smooth clean install, and out of happiness i installed Antergos on 3 partitions with different DE.
Also to test the multiple display support, because with Gnome it’s very bad.
My next challenge to get working on a MacBook Pro with Optimus Intel + NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GPU’s.
My setup now: 4x boot on a MBP, same computer, cables and displays:
1 MacOS ElCapitan -> multiple displays working out of the box
2 Antergos Gnome -> even dual display isn’t working properly
—> interface fonts are pixellated, screen dimensions are wrong, sometimes and sure after a connected boot all displays freeze on a black screen, …
3 Antergos OpenBox -> dual display working after some tweaks (RandR)
4 Antergos XFCE -> wow never seen a better multiple display support (RandR), but don’t like the DE interface.
But i like Gnome, so:
Can somebody explain me why multiple displays aren’t working properly with Gnome?
Does somebody know how to get multiple displays working properly with Gnome?
Can i install and use without any other major problems the display packages (RandR) and settings from XFCE in Gnome?
Also tried to install Bumblebee but this messed all system up and was the main reason for the clean reinstall.
But this i will discuss in another post.
