I like the idea of beta testing, but is there somewhere I can put some suggestions ? For exemple I have to main suggestions
-> having the choice between open source and prorpietary drivers in cnchi
-> for cinnamon reduce the number of entries in the menu -> system, this sub menu is bloated with ALL the option from the system settings panel it would be greate on fresh install to just have in there a shortcut to said panel.
Issues like this are typically resolved rather quickly (b/c it affects so many users). I recommend waiting for it to be fixed. In the meantime you can use the web client. The web client appears not to be lacking any features so it should get the job done until a fix is released.
It has been fixed at the same time as this post =D
New build of Skype have been realesed in the repos made with the latestes QT4
I may have found the issue ! Same hardware as me (intel skylake processor + latest nvidia drivers)
I think I just have to wait for a bug fix from nvidia.
I really would love to see that happened but I have feeling that it will not. Their is already comments on how Antergos isn’t enough close to ArchBang, or ArchBang might die.
How is that really bad if ArchBang come to die in the future but all the man power merge in with Antergos ? We would save all their work and knowledge isn’t that the most important thing ? Plus one of the main devs if nit the main is working on 2 distros I don’t think that can lead to good thing in the long run. And is it that bad if ArchBang name is lost one day in the process ? it is just a name after all ! Isn’t the manpower and knowledge more important ? An why not create a new name wo no one “win” ?
How is that bad if Antergos isn’t the same philosophy as ArchBang ? Woulnd’t it be great if the two can mix to be a better one on a Arch based OpenBox distro ? Antergos isn’t as lightweight as ArchBang an OpenBox user in general want a lightweight system ? why not work together to make Antergos OpenBox as lightweight as possible and lette other DE be heavier ?
And what with all that trend of system.d free thningy ?
I’m not against ArchBang I’m just asking thing that for me seam logical but not necesarly to everyone.
I don’t think Gnome-Software is that important. After all it is a Gnome/GTK only software. If it was cross and/or multiple DE friendly I would. And Antergos already come with Pamac.
Also I just give a try to Gnome-Software and it is very very very limited I couldn’t access to all the software on the Arch repos, it look like it only give Gnome/GTK softwares as a choice (no QT soft as much I can see) and only FOSS (so no Steam, Skype, etc.).
So I don’t think Gnome-Software is a good choice for Antergos.
Oh and before I forgot on your blog you’ve written this “I don’t even have to enter a password when I install an app. What is this #sorcery? Not sure about the #security implications.”
It is not norman and never occure with pamac, yaourt or pacman itself so it is not Antergos related but Gnome-Software and packagekit fault. Pamac and yaourt ask for password once and you can use them for a time and after a short time will ask it again if you need them again, and by default if you haven’t change anything in antergos you HAVE to run sudo pacman (execept while root).
