Still in love with Antergos (default OS)
Linux newbie since 06/2016
I have customized mate-panel by adding several items, and running ```
and my panel is empty again or blank
Oops, that should have fixed everything and set Antergos configs.
I guess you should stick with plan B, or C :)
You can also just right click the grey panel at the top and add a menu, and everything else and start from there.
yes it looks like Mate has already been installed. I can see it in the login session. but after logging in, everything is empty. blank panel. I can’t do anything with it.
that’s an old bug. I can’t find the posts here,
If i’m not mistaken there was a command like
mate-panel restartto fix it. You can also just right click the grey panel at the top and add a menu, and everything else and start from there.
To add desktop icons you can install mate-tweak-tool.
I didn’t mind using lightdm personally, and would like to know how to fix the problem as opposed to installing another display manager. Thanks.
You could change the login manager just to know if that solve the problem, and then you’ll have a way to get into i3.
First try what @joekamprad said…
Just in case, instead of switching to su you can use
sudo. I know it sounds dumb, but i’ve never manager to use
sudirectly in antergos iso, i don’y know how you did it…
I also always use the normal terminal…
In the normal terminal you can use
sudo sujust fine.
if still doens’t work, then maybe bash is corrupted in your installed system, let’s hope not.
As @manuel said i’m Portergos’s developer, although i haven’t released a new version since August, 2018 (i make new versions to test persistent livecd mode, works, but i’m still not happy with it).
Anyway i’m happy that everything worked out for you, it’s so usefull to have an offline installer right? After that everyone install whatever they want and make a “system of their own”
I’m also very happy running Portergos in a very old machine, and is so fast :)
About Antergos community, yeah “we’re” the best hehehe.
About Arch community i have to say that the first offline installer was made by an Arch user, and without his tutorial videos Portergos would never exist :)
Archwiki is one of the best sources of learning linux stuff. Even when i’m not running an arch-based distro i still look there first.
my ethernet is not working after install
At first only using udev rule didn’t work, after enabling dhcpd service it worked (i thought it came by defult). Didn’t check if it was already (but simply starting the service didn’t work at first). I also added udev rule for dhcp just like arch-based distros (i’ll remove it for testing).
clicking from the touchpad is not working
xf86-input-synapticsand it’s working now.
After installing Antergos i’m having some troubles:
The system wouldn’t boot, since i read some posts about grub/systemd errors i simply decided to use ubuntu grub (since i have both systems intalled). Problem workarounded…
Also my ethernet is not working after install (i decided to install through ethernet and was working fine) (i guess i can workaround taking the script from arch/antergos/portergos isos…
So i’m not sure if it’s a systemd problem, but downgrading seems complicated since some libraries errors pop up when
mkinitcpiois executed, so for now i’m keeping the newest systemd version and using wifi to prevent an unbootable system.
Also clicking from the touchpad is not working, not sure if i should just enable it somewhere or install some package.
It’s been a long time since the last install and i don’t remember how to configure most of stuff, but i’m not in the hurry and probably will try again tomorrow.
Everything else seems to be working very well, stable and fast.
