@EarthMind thanks for the reply. In regards to the performance drop, how much should I expect? I currently have a PCI-E SSD installed on my laptop.
As a side note, I plan to use VeraCrypt on an external hard drive. Will this double encryption (from SSD during install to the mounted block from VeraCrypt) cause even more performance degradation in terms of file read/write speeds?
Hi everyone, Antergos and general Linux newbie here.
Currently tinkering with Antergos on VM and planning to do a real install on my laptop in the near future.
During installing on VM, I’ve noticed that Antergos allows encryption of the hard drive when installing. I was interested in the feature and did a bit of searching and found that encryption could be done on different folders (is that the correct term?), such as /root and /home.
As a complete noob I have no idea what the difference is between the two.
Say in the future I plan to install Antergos completely on my laptop (i.e. no Windows, no dual boot) and I want to encrypt my entire hard drive, what should I be doing? I generally just want the drive to be encrypted so that no one can access it without my password, even when I lose the laptop.
Hi all, first time Antergos user here.
Installed Antergos w/ GNOME in VM to try it out a bit before I install for real on my laptop. Loving the distro so far.
I do have one question in regards to the file manager that comes with Antergos GNOME. The default file manager doesn’t seem to display the resolution of image files (e.g. 19020x1080), or the duration of media files (e.g. 00:03:15 of an mp3 file) when a file is selected.
For example in Windows, I can get such information when I click to select a file, and these relevant information would be displayed at the bottom panel of the window.
I’ve looked everywhere and it doesn’t seem to have such option to enable such display.
Does anyone here have any experience with this matter?
