My understanding was that Antergos is a “bleeding edge” rolling release distribution and thus always offers the latest versions of all software.
Does “bleeding edge” rolling release mean something different?
Could you please explain this inconsistency in software versions?
Someone including ourselves has to dedicate time and effort to maintain packages.
I’ve been using Linux of various flavours for years (Open Suse, Debian, Ubuntu, and a few others ).
I can say, for the packages that do matter to most users, Arch and therefore Antergos is “bleeding edge”.
I am running the newer version of slimjet, see
and you can do so yourself.
Caveats do apply, you are building the package yourself, you will have to debug etc. yourself.
Maybe if you ask nicely someone who knows how can add slimjet to the Antergos repository.
baloo can be controlled using
System Settingsand selecting
Search, then either disable
index file contentor add to
Do not search in these locations.
I suspect indexing file content is what consumes CPU and memory.
I tried a quick google for clients of baloo and did not find much other than krunner and elisa.
Not sure what the effect of turning off
index file contentwould be.
In my case, almost all of my data (under /home/username) is not on the partition mounted as
/and the default search settings seem to exclude all other mounted partitions.
So almost all of my files and content is not indexed by baloo.
I haven’t noticed any missing functionality but that may just be the way I do stuff. I’m old school, and use
grepto find stuff.
I should have RTFM, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta
pacman -Dkand reinstalled everything package that was being complained against.
pacman -Dkshowed that zero files were installed for
Not sure exactly how that happened, either update was taking too long as previously explained or update crashed.
sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/local/libksysguard-5.14.3-1/ -rf sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/local/kemoticons* -rf sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/local/kwin-5.14.3-1 -rf sudo pacman -S kwin libksysguard kemoticons --force
et voila, all appears to be normal!
I have been unable to fix KDE on my installation of Antergos,
so I took the radical step of installing Antergos KDE on another partition on the same,
desktop box. It didn’t go smoothly :-( but I will discuss that in another topic.
On the new installation I’ve noticed that antergos-kde-meta is not installed.
Is this expected?
IIRC my older Antergos installation does have antergos-kde-meta installed.
Duplicate of https://forum.antergos.com/topic/10964/unable-to-boot-properly-after-update ?
Try the solution mentioned there.
Phew! managed to fix it, by searching the forum for posts on invalid or corrupted packages.
For the record here is the set of commands I used gleaned from history (logged in as root hence no sudo)
491 pacman-key --init 492 pacman-key --populate archlinux antergos 493 pacman-key --refresh-keys 494 pacman -Syyu 495 pacman -Scc 497 pacman-key --refresh-keys 499 pacman -S antergos-kde-meta --overwrite \*
I should have done the
pacman -Sccat the beginning.
I do remember that I fired off an update using the GUI (pamac-manager) and continued using the computer to do other stuff.
Thinking back now the pamac-manager window disappeared at some point,
and I did not see the usual notification for update completion.
A few hours later, I wasn’t alert to the unusual situation and shut the system down (probably from the terminal).
When I tried to boot again I had problems.
