@papa33 you’re actually right I can’t believe it but I actually think I forgot to assign a mountpoint to my partition in the Cnchi installer while reinstalling the first time. Now it works like a charm.
Thanks @all for your help, I wonder if there was another solution though.
@joekamprad my objective: to mount my old home partition while being able to normally use my distro. Because it has all my config & dotfiles & stuff, all my disk space too.
@fernandomaroto : yep, right after mounting. I picked the Antergos Live ISO rather than the minimum one.
@manuel I don’t feel like it is a viable long term solution or is it? I want to be able to frequently change my distro while keeping my home. Besides, there are tons of empty space allocated in this old /home partition.
/dev/sda3it is already mounted on
@papa33 I’ve mounted the old partition into a new folder I just created inside /home, it works as one would expect, i.e. the partition’s content is accessible from within this folder.
I also tried copying my .Xauthority and .ICEauthority files, then mounting my old partition, then replacing its .Xauthority/.ICEauthority files by those I just copied. Still same error message though.
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /home
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Cannot parse arguments: Cannot open display:, I have also got:
No protocol specified Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Cannot parse arguments: Cannot open display:at any GUI app I try and launch. It starts each time I (temporarily) mount my old home partition to /home. I actually just reinstalled Antergos right after this same issue occurred.
Here goes my journalctl today’s log: https://pastebin.com/UY125KSd.
I have been told to rename/temporarily delete every .directories pertaining to gnome shell. I must not have been exhaustive while trying because it has not worked.
I believe this issue’s root cause is the installation of the AUR modelio package on my old Antergos, which I aborted after 2 hours of installation.
Thank you in advance.
