hp envy printers do not work well under linux
ok how about this one did some digging on this one and I see linux support
and for drivers
Ok I got a update on the nvidia settings , I was trying to get my system to not use grubb so I wiped the main drive and set my system to ueif reinstalled antergos from scratch , what I found is by just auto loading the nvidia dock that my settings were aslo auto loaded , so no other tweaks/commands were needed . I am learning . I did learn that I failed in my attempt at UEIF as grub is still their perhaps I should have disabled compatability mode support in my bios alltogeather but grub is not that bad so not a biggie
@joekamprad thanks to all that replyed as to the new egg link I am looking for a new printer , I have done some reading and from what I have seen HP printers seem the most linux friendly , Yes ?
how about this one ? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16828414422&ignorebbr=1
I am new to linux and antergos , I just made the move to Antergos coming from windows 10 , I am happy so for but I need a printer that will work with antergos , a usb printer that is easy on the wallet . I dont need anything fancy just basic printing . I am hoping someone could suggest a printer from say amazon or new egg . especialy new egg as they have a location very close to me in Indpls IN
say I just learned a new trick , I learned how to manually trim my hard drive .
sudo fstrim -v /
I am using a samsung 960 evo NVME drive si I wondered about trim did some googling and found out how to set up a weekly trim and do a manual trim
Here are my full system specs
Intel Kabby lake 7600K
asrock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K4
2x8 gb gskill ram ddr2400
Samsung 960 Evo 250 mb
asus dvdrw drive
But I was browsing the software repository and found this program " Nvidia Dock "
thats a elpfull information! so it seem that this will autoload the settings without this tinkering i provide ?
You got it to save the settings but the nvdock is what auto starts the settings on boot , that is my experience . so it took both .
UUID=""long-long--uuid-number"" /mnt/DATA ext4 defaults,discard,noatime,user 0 2
example with a UUID inside:
UUID=5fub8587-0068-45ec-a945-15394170vv89 /mnt/DATA ext4 defaults,discard,noatime,user 0 2
may need also bind under your home, to get access without password:
/mnt/DATA /home/""yourusername""/DATA auto bind 0 0
inside your /etc/fstab must do the job !
thanks to @dreamtraveler reminds me to check this again…
with Nvidia x config files you want to autoload settings from nvidia-settings tool? this is a bit tricky, as it do not have a autostarter itself…
you need to create one (aka .desktop file) :
and put the following inside:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=nvidia Comment=autoload nvidia-settings Exec=nvidia-settings --config ~/.nvidia-settings-rc --load-config-only
save the file with [Ctrl+X]
this is the command to load the settings from the file nvidia-settings create if you press save settings
well I got some time and reread your advice on the nvidia settings , Your advice worked somewhat , the nvidia control panel would now save my settings , but not auto load on boot ,But I was browsing the software repository and found this program " Nvidia Dock " downloaded it and installed , then put it in my start up apps program and boom baby It worked Now my colors are not washed out :Yea:
Thanks for the help
There is a problem with the current kernel, this seem to effect to the open source nvidia driver (nouveau) and some newer cards… And this is causing official iso, to do not boot fine on thouse.
But rolling releases can do this, next ISO new kernel…
well I noticed the manjaro gives you a option to use the default drivers or the " Non Free" on their setup perhaps this could be a option for a future release ? ( tryed manjaro not a fan antergos beats it IMO )
well You did a fantastic job ! My Thanks ! I was browsing antergos main page and on their comunity tab for downloads it says the nvidia iso not needed
not so at least in my case I looked closer at my screen when booting a official antergos iso and I could see that their vid drivers were crashing leaving me with a black screen and a mouse pointer flashing on and off . So I do not know who makes the official ISOs but they still need work
You are welcome!
Sorry for your screwed experience .
And we will be here when you come back!
well looks like it was a short recess ROFL windows was peving me off sound going in and out so I started digging around the net and found a community version of antergos that had nvidia support that disk worked seems the vid support in the official disk was wonkey . so I installed that and I am back . Had the experience already to install the correct drivers for my gtx1060 . For some reason the control panel is remembering the digital viberance setting but not the contrast setting . But its better then what I had .
What impresses me with antergos is the stablity . . Guess when I get off the xmas season and these 60 hr work weeks Ineed to start learning linux . Part of my problem right now is I just don’t have much free time . again Thank you VERY much for your patience . Wishing You and Yours a Merry Christmas
