I installed two versions of Antergos - one with KDE plasma and the other with Gnome. I’m trying to access the Linux machine from my windows machine - through RDP. I did the following:
Install from package manager (add/remove software):
Ran these commands from the terminal as sudo:
vncserver (asks for password etc) systemctl --user start [email protected]:1 systemctl enable xrdp.service systemctl enable xrdp-sesman.service systemctl start xrdp.service systemctl start xrdp-sesman.service
Did the same thing on both my Antergos machines. In the KDE machine, I get the error message environment variable “HOME” is not set in the logs.
In the Gnome machine, I don’t see this error message and all the 3 services are running perfectly fine. I’m also able to login to the RDP session from Windows machine. But once I login, I see the below (attached) screen. All I have is 3 terminal windows to use. I don’t see any graphical interface.
Can you please help getting this resolved for me on both my machines?
I have 4 display link USB 1080P adapters connected to my MacBookPro 15 retina running antergos. All the four monitors show green color screens when connected, but they dont show up as monitors in the display settings, and I’m unable to shadow or extend my desktop to any of these screens.
The same works when I switch to Mac OSx.
Can you please help?
Thank you for your responses.
Tried the brightness setting (I don’t have any second monitor connected), but doesn’t make any difference.
I don’t know what the tty2 is… I tried Ctrl+Alt+F2 and till F12. Nothing gets me to the terminal.
I tried to do the arch-chroot on all other /dev/sdaX /mnt ==> but it works only on one, and I have executed the gdm install and enable commands but doesn’t help.
I went through the steps listed at
Open up a terminal
Switch to root user using su
Mount the partition in which you have Antergos installed, on the /mnt folder. You can do it by using: mount /dev/sdXn /mnt with the X being the letter of your drive, and the n being the number of the partition.
Change the root using arch-chroot /mnt. This open some kind of root session on that drive, allowing you to make changes to the system without booting from it.
Uninstall lightdm, and install gdm:
pacman -Rcns lightdm
pacman -S gdm
systemctl -f enable gdm
But still I see just the blank screen when it passes the antergos boot screen. Can you please help?
