can’t help if i don’t see your commands. once you boot into your live antergos tune the commands then post them here
i just tried it in mine (i have help packages so i didn’t update)

first, i would not update computer and then leave. most likely the updates wanted some human interaction and then it stalled. you may recover or may not, can’t say but you can try
second, boot with your live antergos. close ALL the programs and connect to the internet then
open terminal and type:
mount /dev/sda4 /mntreplace sda4 with your /root partition and number
reboot and pray to Linus
/etc/environmentis where i put my qt5ct settings. here’s what i have:
# # This file is parsed by pam_env module # # Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on separate lines # SHELL=/bin/bash BROWSER=google-chrome EDITOR=leafpad QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct QT_LOGGING_RULES="qt.svg*.warning=false" NO_AT_BRIDGE=1
i reboot and then open qt5ct and select gtk2
there are a few ways to block something from being updated. i won’t show you how to do it in pamac because i use an older version (pamac-aur-5.1.1-3 because it’s much simpler)
if you install
downgradeand you use
downgrade alsa-libit will give an option to get an older version and at the end of installation it will ask you if you want it blocked which will add an exception in /etc/pacman.conf or you can edit the file yourself:
so far i will just keep an eye out on the alsa packages and not upgrade them since i upgrade using pamac and i have control what to keep back
but i do edit /etc/pacman.conf quite often manually, here’s what i keep back:
IgnorePkg = pamac-aur dbus wine thunar thunar-archive-plugin qbittorrent #IgnoreGroup =
there’s a new iso available. did you get the latest?
i had to downgrade all my alsa, i used the
downgradepackage and downgraded all from 1.1.7 to the first 1.1.6
upgraded alsa-lib (1.1.6-1 -> 1.1.7-1) upgraded alsa-plugins (1.1.6-2 -> 1.1.7-1) upgraded alsa-utils (1.1.6-1 -> 1.1.7-1) upgraded lib32-alsa-lib (1.1.6-1 -> 1.1.7-1) upgraded lib32-alsa-plugins (1.1.6-1 -> 1.1.7-1)
developers are slowly taking away all our root access. in mint19/ubuntu18/ gksu is already gone. in plasma5 dolphin/kate is built from source to not allow root access
the link @joekamprad gave already has strike outs in it and also warns you about insecure xhost.
what does it tell you opening from terminal.
does wayland have something like
.xsession-errorsdo you have anything in there anyway ?
