AMD A4-3305M Processor
1GB+512MB Hybrid AMD GPU
Install Antergos normally.
Install Nvidia proprietary drivers later.
This Prime discrete card as primary GPU method cant be directly copied as it’s for the opensource noveau driver.
Your system specs tell opensource drivers are worthless for you.
But anyways you can try PRIME as such without installing the Nvidia drivers. Should work.
**If its a laptop and nothing shows up, do this
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource Intel nouveau
Nvidia Optimus seems direct process and looks like you need to do some work for the login managers as well down on that page.
Can’t help with the blackscreen problem as I’m an AMD user.
You can also try Bumblebee.
Long time no see hehe.
anyways, How do i connect my arch to win8 directly via lan cable for lan gaming?
I’ve done it on win7 <–> win8 but I have no idea about doing it linux <–> win8
Samba is for file transfer only I guess.
Also, I never tried to understand the working behind the LAN networking and why do we have to select IPs close to each other…
Thats why articles over the internet telling the ways of crossplatform networking scare me…
Isn’t there a easy way like "right click on nm-applet -> Edit connections -> Blah blah -> type ip here -> OK.
Type similar IP in networks n connections in windows -> Blah blah -> OK " ?
Quoting words from Alexandre Filgueira :
“Our base installation is pretty much an Arch Linux base installation but we add some packages to it like more decompress utilities, sudo…”
List of exactly what gets installed in Antergos Base besides Arch Base.
And yep, antergos base doesn’t give you Xorg. Gotta get your hands dirty to get them clean.
The problem is e.g. when I type in a web address in the web browser I have to wait about 2 to 3 seconds till I can read the first letter
Aah I see, its not related to your HDD or CPU, its definitely the driver or Xorg. I’ve had this too. Never managed to get it solved. Fresh reinstallation always does the trick.
I’ve always faced the same problem with Gnome (all) and just like you I have AMD CPU + GPU system. But only Gnome (or mutter) lags on my system, rest all DEs/WMs I’ve tried work very well.
Well this seems like your HDDs problem, if not HDD, its definitely the dust. Dust makes your CPU work less efficiently and you see shutters n lags.
- Check yor HDDs Bad Sectors. (Open gnome-disks or “Disks”).
- Run hdparm benchmarks
hdparm -t --direct /dev/sda
hdparm indicates only the pure read speed of a hard drive, and is not a valid benchmark. A value higher than 40MB/s (while idle) is however acceptable on an average system.
- Check for dust in your PC. Should clean it if not done in past 2 years.
Waana see real smoothness in Gnome? Install drop down terminal extension and see how smoothly it comes down.
Whatever your system is, nothing runs as smooth as enlightenment.
I like how in Unity, window bar merges with Unity’s top panel.
Copied from MacOS ofcourse but I like it.
but not the side bar and the slow asf dash.
I prefer a dock on bottom.
I dont waana install Unity, set left bar to hidden and use separate dock.
cuz it would show up again and again.
Noobslab’s Macbuntu tranformation pack simply auto-hides left bar.
I waana completely get rid of it.
So is it possible to use Unity’s top panel in a standalone session?
I think I’ll get an SSHD, seems to be a good combination to me now after watching few youtube videos and reading more about it.
But after this shit fails finally!
Update: YAY! More Bad sectors!
Thats 262,166 more bad sectors in one day!
