For whatever reason, I cannot connect to any of my several networks with a password. Neither through the applet in tint2, neither through nmtui.
I can though connect to my guest networks.
I have installed gnome-keyring after reading some advice on an arch forum post.
Any clue what’s happening - and more importantly how to get out of it?
Double click speed?
I have a thinkpad x220. I use the trackpoint and therefore deactivated the touchpad to avoid palm artefacts.
The double click detection on the left click appears to be all over the place. I tried changing the value in the settings accessible from the UI, but it does not appear to have any impact on it. As it is it is barely usable. When clicking on a minimized windows in the panel, it raises it up but minimizes it down instantly as it mistkes my click for a double click…
Also, the misdle button associated with the trackpoint, on windows and certin other linuses, is a very efficient “scroller” whcih can be used in lieu of a mouse wheel. I managed to activate this mniddle button, but is works as a desktop/windows shifter, not a scroller. Any clue bout that?
Indeed my understanding of Grub was not quite there. I thought that when asking the installer to install grub it would overwrite the existing MBR settings…
I manage a boot-repair from a liveUSB and everything is good now install wise…
The DNS issue is also an error of mine - but was a direct consequence of the DHCP bug that forced me to setup my ethernet connection with a fixedIP. Also, the installer just “disappeared” from the screen with no error message . Maybe it should verify DNS resolution before displaying a green tick next to the “internet connection”…
Thanks for all advices anyway. I’ll try to set this thread as solved (haven’ found yet how to do it :/) - and go back to fixing all the rest (Still no wifi that I can use. My mouse click is behaving very strangely - I changed the multiclick value wiht no change - and the screen blacks out after 15 or so minutes of inactivity and does not wake up - I have to hard reset the laptop :()
The crash was because the DNS was not properly set…
Then i had other errors …which were due to choosing to install flash…
Then eventually it worked.
I configured my partitions manually, trying to install it alongside Mint.
I aske to set-up grub too…
Well…problem is now none boot.
Mint goes to the login screen but cannot write to the authorization file???
And the bootloader does not see the Antergos install??
Dhcp is deifnitively the issue.
I tried the "full"ISO to see if it was different…no change
I managed to connect by setting up the wired connection to manual instead of dhcp.
Now install validates all 4requirements on this screen, but then the installer window disappears???
Honestly so far it is quite disappointing. I was expecting a lot from this distro based on its reviews…archbang had been my daily commute for years, on several machines, and I have never seen this kind if issue with it!
Downloaded the ISO and made a boottable usb.
Boots up. Wired connection is UP in ip a…but the applet says no netwrok connection hence install cannot proceed further. If unplugging/plugging back the ethernet cable, dmesg shows the link going down and up again as expected…
Every 30 seconds orr soo the applet shows a pop up that says “the network connection has been disconnected”
I just don’t know where to look ! I have used Linux on and off for years, including archbang and many flavours of ubuntu/debian but have never had any trouble with a wired connection!
It is a thinkpad 220 with Intel 82579LM chip. Module e1000e loaded.
Btw i have double checked …the connection is fine when booting from HD…
