Just found this discussion @ Phoronix: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/phoronix/latest-phoronix-articles/818449-arch-based-antergos-refreshed-installer-overhaul
“Like Arch, Antergos uses a (soft) real-time Linux kernel by default, so battery life & multi-threading performance is going to suffer compared to sane distros like Ubuntu or Fedora. (…)
Type ‘uname -a’ into a terminal and see if You can find “PREEMPT” there. if positive, that means Your Linux kernel will preempt (think of it like freezing) itself to allow other tasks (like interrupts from hardware or user-space apps) to complete THEORATICALLY faster. Only problem with that is of course that all the rest of the system has to suffer for it, which makes sense, since there is no free lunch. This especially becomes noticable when You look at the frame-latency during games.”
What do you think?
This is the way I do it…
first I create /usr/lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service with the following contents:
then do the following:
ln -s /usr/lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service rc-local.service
systemctl enable rc-local.service
finally, create /etc/rc.local with the commands you want, make it executable with chmod, and remember to have “exit 0” as last line. In your case it should be something like this:
setkeycodes e016 188
I know it’s a bit long, but once you create the service you can use it anytime, just add the commands you want to rc.local
BTW, this is what I see in cnchi.log when cnchi tries to update itself (booting from current full ISO installer):
[2015-05-04 04:31:21] [cnchi] INFO: Using GTK v3.16.1

If your Cnchi version remains at 0.7 (current is 0.8) then you are experiencing the same issue described by me and others here: http://forum.antergos.com/topic/2048/live-iso-won-t-update-cnchi
In that case, you should launch a terminal and follow these steps to update cnchi manually: https://github.com/Antergos/Cnchi/issues/303#issuecomment-94838586
I’ve had the same problem on a network where network configuration had to be done manually (no DHCP). Obviously chnchi failed, so I configured the network, restarted cnchi and it said it was retrieving updates. However, the version was not updated, just like the OP has reported.
I tried to install anyway, but it missed several files and failed. After several attempts rebooting/updating/installing and so on, I had to delete and manually update cnchi from git to make it work. Hopefully this issue will be fixed sometime soon.
Love Antergos, btw. Thanks for your work!
