I’m another very happy i3 user (but only on my laptop - i use KDE with all bells and whistles on powerful desktop machine). It boots real quick, uses less than 200MB of RAM at boot, and is easily tweakable using simple text files.
For all new i3 users I highly recommend watching this excellent three part video for basic i3 tweaks - it’s a few years old but still very relevant and useful.
I use i3blocks too, and have tweaked my configs to include emoticons - for example here’s my rofi (i normally have the top bar hidden, and only shows when i press my mod key)
showing is my rofi run menu - here i type in any program i want to run (hence the running man icon) and the TV-icon shows me all running windows (on all workspaces) that i can switch to.
i haven’t finished tweaking yet - i don’t think you ever do with i3!
i’ll post my configs if anybody is interested.
ok thanks - i wrongly assumed it was some sort of error message.
i am trying to get a completely silent ‘tidy’ clean boot, following some ideas from the Arch wiki.
this is the only thing getting in the way of my dream.
i’ll guess i’ll have to close my eyes for a few seconds while the system boots
thanks again SOLVED
ok, so i booted into a live usb, and tried fsck to fix it

as you can see, the problem still remains even after filesystemcheck and renaming to estragon!
should i clone my antergos install to a new partition?
or will this clone the errors too?
@joekamprad no, i’ve never had any java packages at all on this machine, not even a jdk
i’m pretty sure it’s nothing to do with java - it wouldn’t be giving me messages before i log-in…
i’ve also got an ubuntu partition, and i don’t see this ‘ant’ message when i boot into that.
i simply jumped to the conclusion that ‘ant’ is an antergos thing, but maybe not?
Hi, during the boot sequence, after grub but before logging in, my machine (thinkpad x240) briefly shows the message
ant: clean. 217782/2260992 files, 241337
googling just leads to java compilation, obviously nothing to do with boot-up!
is this ‘ant’ an antergos thing?
what does it mean?
can i fix it?
everything seems to work okay, it just seems to slow my boot by a few milliseconds.
thanks in advance
hi all, first post!
i want to use vim as my default text editor, so whenever i double-click on a text file in caja, i want to open it in vim, inside mate-terminal
i’ve googled a lot and have tried a few things including making a vim.desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications, tried making a script file to open vim in terminal, but none of these work.
please help, thanking you in advance!
