I wanted to post this on Arch forums but I know no one would offer help since i’m using mintMenu which comes from Antergos…
Basically, the system was fine before updating now I get segfaults and mintMenu crashes when I try to do a search. Strangely enough gnome-terminal works but mate-terminal doesn’t…
This is my dad’s laptop and he needs chromium. I’m using official mesa drivers but I’ve also tried mesa-git and it doesn’t work.
EDIT: I also have these problems on my desktop which has an ATI HD3870 plus Steam segfaults as well. I’m guessing the problem is beyond mesa]0
I was reading the Arch mailing list when I found this: [https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-general/2014-March/035636.html]">[https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail] … 35636.html
The guys at Antergos started the port of the alpm backend to 0.8 but it
seems it’s a lot more work than first anticipated.
Is work still going on this?
With alpm properly ported to more recent packagekit would GNOME Software finally work in Arch?

It seems that my system is only detecting one drive (sr0) as you can see here: [http://i.imgur.com/EZ6lJGp.png]">[http://i.imgur.com/EZ6lJGp.png]
[http://i.imgur.com/XqsiLAW.png]">[http://i.imgur.com/XqsiLAW.png] - I wanted to take a picture of what shows up but gnome-screenshot doesn’t capture that. Basicaly I can only identify as:
- Drive name
There’s no option to identify it as sr1.
It does seem to detect sr1, though, as you can see on the top but only sr0 actually reads and mounts disks - [u:26kxn1vp]sr1 doesn’t detect empty disks and mounts disks with content as folders[/u:26kxn1vp], I believe.
When I ran [inxi[/url:26kxn1vp] I noticed that sr1 doesn’t have a dev-link:
Optical-1: /dev/sr0 model: ASUS DRW-2014L1T rev: 1.00 dev-links: cdrom Features: speed: 48x multisession: yes audio: yes dvd: yes rw: cd-r,cd-rw,dvd-r,dvd-ram state: running Optical-2: /dev/sr1 model: ASUS DRW-2014L1T rev: 1.02 dev-links: N/A Features: speed: 48x multisession: yes audio: yes dvd: yes rw: cd-r,cd-rw,dvd-r,dvd-ram state: running
I proceeded to check /dev/ and indeed there’s only one cdrom link to sr0 while sr1 doesn’t seem to have any, unless i’m missing something - [http://i.imgur.com/crjmUM5.png] (ignore the cinnarch partition, that’s a very old one that I haven’t used since Antergos released
I actaully have no idea if missing the dev-link is a problem as I’m just guessing but the matter of fact is that sr1 doesn’t work properly and the only burning software I can get to recognise both drives properly is xfburn - I can’t use any other software to burn disks.
As usual any help would be appreciated
I remember in the past days of cinnarch both drives working fine and detected properly. This is either a more recent, general Arch bug or the Antergos installation messed up somewhere - I installed this some months ago, I think around october or something.]
My all-in-one is an HP DeskJet 3050 j610
I’ve been reading the arch wikis back and forth regarding wireless printers and scanner:
But I can’t get the scanner to work.
In fact, I couldn’t even get hplip-setup to work.
I added my wireless printer through Windows to make the connection to the router. In Windows both print and scanning functions work fine.
In Linux I tried the hplip setup but I can’t make it work so I added the printer though CUPS (localhost:631) and it prints flawlessly through any PC connected to the network.
However now I have no idea how to get scanning to work. If I try hp-scan it never detects anything. If I open xsane it doesn’t detect anything. if I run hp-probe -bnet it doesn’t detect any printers either
Probing network for printers. Please wait, this will take approx. 10 seconds... warning: No devices found on the 'net' bus. If this isn't the result you are expecting, warning: check your network connections and make sure your internet warning: firewall software is disabled.
And If I run hp-check I get this at the end:
--------------------------------- | INSTALLED CUPS PRINTER QUEUES | --------------------------------- HP\_Deskjet\_3050\_J610\_series --------------------------- Type: Unknown Device URI: socket://192.168.1.96:9100 PPD: /etc/cups/ppd/HP\_Deskjet\_3050\_J610\_series.ppd PPD Description: HP Deskjet 3050 j610 Series hpijs, 3.14.1 Printer status: printer HP\_Deskjet\_3050\_J610\_series is idle. enabled since Sáb 15 Mar 2Waiting for printer to finish. warning: Printer is not HPLIP installed. Printers must use the hp: or hpfax: CUPS backend for HP-Devices.
My guess is that I have to install the printer though hp-setup but I can’t get it to find the damn printer!
Please any help would alleviate my colossal headache.
Sigh… I think I managed to solve it…
Turns out I had to specify the printers IP. Now I have no idea how this could be done without using Windows.
It was through Windows that I followed HP setup and made it connect to the router so i could check the IP in 192.168.1.254
I have no idea how pairing the Printer with the router can be done In Linux. To check the printer’s IP I must pair it first but, again, i have no idea how this can be done in Linux.
But anyway, to those that have similiar problem the way to install the printer the right way (if HP) is by running
hp-setup -i 192.168.x.xxx
Probing for a network printer won’t work for whatever reason.
Now I can finally scan after following the instructions in the SANE wiki page by simply typing ‘hp-scan’ in the terminal.

Using 23rd of February 32bit test build on a laptop.
The installation went smoothly but now it’s stuck here. The system is responsive - meaning i can move the mouse and do whatever - but the installer is just sitting there.
EDIT: Tried installing again, still freezes.
I also wanted to point out that the 16th of February 64bit test build installs fine. I would have kept it but the laptop doesn’t have enough RAM so i’m switching to a 32bit system.
It freezes there.
If i run
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
it also freezes here:
Generating grub configuration file ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux Found initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img Found fallback initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux-fallback.img Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux-ck Found initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux-ck.img Found fallback initramfs image: /boot/initramfs-linux-ck-fallback.img Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux-ck Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img No volume groups found
Please help… :\
It seems that it can’t find Windows 8 on sdb1 for whatever reason. It was working fine before, what happened? I added a line to the kernel to disable ipv6 because it’s fucking up curl and I can’t resolve any host or connect to AUR with yaourt, so i added ipv6.disable=1. Then I tried configuring grub and it just freezes there…

Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes:
I have an old intel classmate PC that I got for trading with a nokia N80 phone a long time ago. It has a 1.6GHz atom and 945GM (I think). I wanted arch on it because it’s bleeding edge and should, in theory, offer better performance. So the system runs quite [i:uhxdwj2s]really[/i:uhxdwj2s] well on this, plus using XFCE is a breeze - I can actually watch youtube videos at 480p perfectly fine - but I like to use gnome anway
However sometimes after updating the system breaks - like right now…
The system now hangs at “Reached target Graphical Interface”. I use sna acceleration, mesa-git, kernel-ck and a few more parameters in grub file, but to try and fix this I already went back to uxa, normal mesa and i’m using a clean grub file with normal kernel to no avail.
There are also two messages that keep popping up:
[ 218.395289] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Asking for cache data failed [ 269.595927] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
Any ideas what might have broken this yet again? This isn’t the first time and while everything works 100% on my desktop my netbook always suffers
So besides this problem I also wanted to ask if anyone thinks I should install a different distro? I very much want to use wayland as fast as possible and going to something like for example puppy linux means I’ll probably be a year behind updates not to mention it’s ugly as sin lol
If you could read his 4 posts you’ll understand everything, I’m just stuck at the solution he found:
Fixed. Loopback from the output monitor to a PulseAudio JACK sink. In qjackctl, connect the PulseAudio JACK sink and microphone to ffmpeg.
No impressed, PulseAudio, but at least this is a workable solution.
What does he mean by this? How do I do that? I wanted to contact him but there doesn’t seem to be a way in the arch forums.
Here’s the ffmpeg script that I edited and originaly got from [Xpander69[/url:2urnr4as]: [http://pastebin.com/8h4Dv6Mu]]
The microphone doesn’t show up in the Capture Devices, instead it shows the Playback Device. How can I solve this? The only way to have microphone working is by unmuting the microphone but then I also hear myself which I don’t want to.
I have a HP Deskjet 3050 j610 and i’m trying to get the scanner to work.
I already followed the instructions [here[/url:39uzkclb] except the “hp-plugin” part
Running “hp-plugin” leads to this:
