Still in love with Antergos (default OS)
Linux newbie since 06/2016
i would like to here from one of the @developers if this is the way now to install only from this one mirror…
Yeah, as i undestand it simply order the mirrors, and not select only one…
I went back to my bios to enable USB booting so I can re install antergos but when I chose live boot again I am stacked at that log in screen.
Maybe you’re choosing the first option at the liveiso (which is oot from HD), but should choose the 2nd to boot the iso…
I think you have a problem with nvidia, not sure why you can’t login at tty though…
Try ctrl+alt+f3 or others f4, f5 just in case.
Actually my experience with GDM has not been good.
Yeah, Gnome and GDM have a lot of bugs, and some people started to hate their developers…
But with GDM, there are always annoying quirks, like the power/suspend buttons disappear from the top right corner.
As i said, i don’t use suspend/hibernations etc but i use
sddmwhich is the best, fastest and doesn’t break with updates (broke only once actually in 2 years).
Do’t know if works nice with gnome, but you can test it.
In your estimate, which DE has the most active development and support going on?
For sure is
cinnamonno sure in which order though.
i3-wmas window manager (is not considered desktop), is hard for begginers, but aso supper light and after you configure it and learn how to use it won’t stay in the way with bugs, heavy stuff being loaded etc.
You mean: running games which were not prepared for Linux by their manufacturer? I must take a look at the project, if so. I’d love seeing “The Witcher III” on my machine.
Here it goes, as you can see the file was first submited 2018-08-22, i haven’t installed/tested yet.
Users don’t wanna pay for anything at all.
I guess i’m one of them :) and try to make stuff for free too like Portergos in return …
I notice it must be something with driver, when I switch it to generic foo2lava printer, I get at least page with error printed. Also noticed that in driver list I got 3 (tried all) same (duplicated?) positions for my printer. Is there a way to clean printer configuration/ driver setup without installing system system?
You can try to find out if issue started after an upgrade, but may be complicated:
All upgraded proccess are stored at
In case you remember when your printer stopped working you can browse the file to that date and downgrade the packages, and try using your printer again.
This gets more and more complicated if you don’t know when your printer stopped working…
But it’s something you can try anyway.
So this question is directed to forum members who are more knowledgeable,
in your experience is it safe to do
pacman -Qdtq | pacman -Rs - ?
I don’t risk executing the command here, i’d rather keep all the files (not too much space) and not break packages.
Mine is around 710 MB.
Thanks for the quick suggestions!
One good thing to keep in mind is that despite Antergos devs, adopted ligthdm to be our official DM, gnome will probably always work better with GDM, since they are developed by the same team…
Steam works well. As well Native as Runtime
That’s nice, I rmember when i first installed Antergos there wasn’t this 2 packages, and i could only starts steam through terminal with a special option, otherwise steam wouldn’t work. Arch guys quickly adapted Steam package to work, it was a nice thing…
One problem she can find is that not all games are made to run on Linux, But then again, this time there is the
Steam proton(AUR for now, but community is voting a lot) which i hope will allow us to run more steam games.
