Just installed a wireless printer myself. I needed to Install drivers from AUR to get it to work. In my case a Canon Mg52xx printer. Worked like a charm.
Whats your printer?
Also, I personally really dont see any reason to Install a base-only version of Antergos. Arch is better for a perfectly customized linux Install. The point of Antergos is to make stuff easy. If you get something you dont want on the full installation you simply remove it. Pacman can resolve every dependency and remove them to If you want.
pacman -Rsn <package>
Removes your package and every dependency installed with it that is not required by other packages.
Unfortunately ARC welder did not work either. I’m officially dropping the issue, for now anyway. I still have Windows 7 on my laptop, so I can work around the problem until a solution magically appears.
Apparently WebGL is not supported in ARC welder.
Failed to load extension from: /home/endre/Android/com.jottacloud.android.client.apk_export_wKlkY. WebGL is not supported.
Maybe I should switch to a cloud storage backup with support for linux instead. It’s just that I get 100gb free on Jottacloud, and that it’s Norwegian (which I am also). I need at least 100gb to store my family photos and videos.
Anyway, thank you both for your help. It’s not always easy to get friendly help on linux forums…
Right again, thank you.
I actually solved a few problems myself after this, by interpreting the output. I am however stuck again.
This is starting to look like more of a programming challenge, which I am not capable of resolving. Judging by the project pages on github, the author seems to be inactive for most of the time. So this may be a waste of time…
I’m giving it a last shot. Can you tell me whats wrong here? Or rather where (in what file?) the problem is?

I tried reading up on the python unicode howto, but its to advanced for me.
Thanks for responding!
I managed to install jottalib, turned out I had already installed it from github. I’ve never used github before, so the process confused me a bit… Removed the github install, an reinstalled it from AUR, in hope of a more correct install.
Anyway, when I’m trying to upload some files I get this error:
[[email protected] ~]$ jotta-scanner /home/endre/Pictures /Jotta/Archive/test Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/jotta-scanner", line 6, in <module> from pkg_resources import load_entry_point File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3138, in <module> @_call_aside File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3122, in _call_aside f(*args, **kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 3151, in _initialize_master_working_set working_set = WorkingSet._build_master() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 664, in _build_master ws.require(__requires__) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 981, in require needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements)) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 867, in resolve raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers) pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'clint' distribution was not found and is required by jottalib
Again, this is a bit out of my comfort zone, I have no clue how to interpret this…?
From what I understand reading the jottacloud wiki, I need to export username and password. So i did…
export JOTTACLOUD_USERNAME="fleindre" export JOTTACLOUD_PASSWORD="1qwe2rty"
Then I ran:
jotta-scanner /home/endre/Pictures /Jotta/Archive/test
Now I’m stuck…
Can someone please help me figure out how to use the program called jottalib from AUR?
- Configure username and password
- Backup my files
Jottalib is a cli program for backing up files to my online backup service of choice, jottacloud.com. Or at least I think so? There aren’t any official Linux client yet.
I basically have No clue in this area of linux… So rather than me trying to explain, please have a look yourself…
Jottalib is available in AUR. I tried installing it, but failed. I also tried “cloning” it from github, but Im basically fumbling in the dark…
I set up an account for you to use.
