I don’t speak Spanish, so surely misunderstood the original question. I thought it was related to setting Numlock ON in Cinnamon session only, and not earlier, before an Xorg session startup.
There are two good ways to set Numlock ON before display manager or Xorkg start. Both are clearly described in ArchWiki (see above). They are:
- by creating a new systemd service
- by extending an existing or creating a new [email protected]
Both methods use setleds utility (installed by deffault) to control and set a desired keyboard modifiers state.
Etremely simplyfying, a startup sequence may be seen as:
- Multu-user.target (runlevel 3) is reached
- After that a display manager may be started
- After that DM starts an Xorg session
Both methods work when a system reaches multi-user.target. It means that Numlock (and other modifiers) will be set to desired state even before display manager or Xorg session start.
Both are easy to implement, though require some skills.
The easiest one to set it ON in Cinnamon is to add numlockx to startup applications:
Menu --> System Settings --> Startup Applications --> Add… Custom Command
and fill in the fields like follows:
You’ll see the newly added command among Cinnamon startup apps:
It will be automatically executedd on each Cinnamon session startup.
caja is depending on exempi but why/what is calling the old version libexempi.so.3 here?
Not only caja depends on exempi. Caja-open-terminal, caja-gksu and eom (eye-of-mate) also depend on exempi:
$ pactree --reverse exempi exempi ├─caja │ ├─caja-extensions-common │ │ ├─caja-gksu │ │ └─caja-open-terminal │ ├─caja-gksu │ └─caja-open-terminal └─eom $
I don’t know who needs | calls | uses libexempi.so.3.
Seems like the problem with missing libexempi.so.3 is present in Antergos Mate only. Libexempi.so.3 is not needed and is not present neither in native Arch Mate, nor in other true Arch clones, like Revenge Mate. All three have identical Mate configuration here. Arch Mate and Revenge Mate have libexempi.so and libexempi.so.8 only.
…Does this mean its not a GPU issue?..
I don’t know. It may or may not be GPU-related. I’m not familiar with Nvidia GTX 10xx series cards.
There are customized Antergos ISOs, made by @joekamprad some time ago. They were working for recent Nvidia 10xx cards. Their download URL may be found in forum posts.
Hard to diagnose the problem when I can’t see anything
I was wondering if there are any easy fixes to disable the nouveau drivers…
Yes, there is. Add to the boot line
The parameter completely excludes | disables | eliminates | removes nouveau from the started session.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] [10de:128b] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with this card. Can’t be of help with it, I’m afraid. My suspections were wrong.
Ok. I removed aur/ffmpeg2.8 and try to update.
The error is:
This is another error, unrelated to the first one. The first one - the conflict between ffmpeg and ffmpeg2.8 - is solved.
I have no idea what playerctl package does and what it serves for. Please, share the full output of the command
sudo pacman -Syyu
