I've noticed today that using the latest ISO, I'm not able to successfully install antergos. I've tried running it "as-is" and by using cnchi-dev. No luck on either. It just hangs on a random package during installation and sits there until I terminate it manually. Are the testing images usable, or will I encounter the same issue?

I got it working just using a normal installation after a few attempts. Just leave it alone and give it time, even if it hangs. Mine hung a few times but started back after a few minutes.

+Georgi Karavasilev I thought I saw some different color options available for Numix's folders. Is there a way to swap out the folders with their different color varients?

Anyone else notice that the little bars sticking out of the speakers are kind of wobbly? I'm able to wiggle mine a little bit and am curious if others do the same

Aaaand now they want to charge me over 100 dollars for repair. I'm pretty sure this should be covered under warranty.

Here's a little something I've been working on.  My gnome-shell theme (Numix) has been very slightly tweaked to work with a script I wrote. Whenever I run the script, it changes the accent colors of both my shell theme and my svg wallpaper.

Okay, I've added both gnome-shell.css files and the wallpaper. The Numix one and the wallpaper are both set to be Teal, but I didn't check which color the elegance one was set to.  I'll try to update it to be teal as well.

I'm looking for a new window manager or desktop environment to replace GNOME Shell, but I have a couple criteria that I'm looking to satisfy:

1. Support for snapping windows to fill either quarters or halves of my screen
2. Not cinnamon because it's been buggy recently.
3. Not a tiling manager, because no matter how much I use them I can't get the hang of them.
4. Able to be themed, even if I need to do it manually in a config file

Is this a lost cause, or is there a good WM that would work for me?
(I've already checked out comparisons of WMs online, but I'm still unable to leave gnome or gnome-derived DEs.

The first thing to know about kde it that it's butt ugly until you theme it. You can find themes at http://www.kde-look.org but you can also install them directly from the system settings. To have GTK support you need to install the gtk themes for oxygen and qtcurve. Kde doesn't have support for things like gtk header bars so a few Gnome apps won't work. Dolphin is the default KDE file manager. It has so many features. The alternatives to gedit are Kate and Kwrite two really powerful text editors. And the alternative to eog is gwenview. It's sounds complicated but it really isn't. Hope that helps :)

Has anyone on Verizon had any luck cutting their old sim card for this phone? I think that's what I'm going to do when I get mine, but I want to be sure it will work.

+Matt Della​ I bought a cutter on Amazon for $10 or so because I wasn't sure I could do it by hand. Yea I don't talk on the phone much either so it's not a huge deal.

Is it possible to switch from systemd to a different init system, and if so is there any benefit to doing so? I hear a lot of people talking badly about different init systems, but I can't seem to find much reason to prefer one over another.

I know about the nofail flag and how systemd hijacked it's meaning. And the console seems to now work again, so that bug has been fixed in a new version of systemd, without any intervention from me. Never had sysvinit have any issue with fstab in over 15 years I've been using Linux, but ymmv. It always booted when a non-essential partition/drive was missing, gave an error to syslog , and didn't throw a fit because of that. It also never killed fsck because it was taking a long time.
You're right, arch is no longer the distro for me.

+Motorola Mobility sure has an interesting way of handling defective hardware. The speaker grill cover of my brand new Nexus begins to fall off after three weeks of very gentle use and they want to charge me over "100+" dollars for repair.

+Rob Watkins I finally just returned the device for a full refund since they wouldn't cooperate otherwise. I'm no longer making any purchases directly through motorola, because their customer service is miserable.

I've been trying to figure out a fix for this problem, but not even a clean install was able to solve my issues..
In gnome-control-center, I have no detected audio input devices. I can, however, record my voice in audacity or with arecord without issues, but applications like skype do not work. What can I do to resolve this?

I have already done everything I can think of in Alsamixer and Pavucontrol, but I'm not sure where to go from here. I should also note that the box that says "Microphone (unplugged)" is  the only option I have available.

Edit:
After running pulseaudio in verbose mode, I ended up getting one error:
E: [pulseaudio] alsa-mixer.c: [/usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-input-internal-mic.conf:24] Name makes no sense in 'General'

Not sure if that helps though

it's already installed, I just think a few config files were somehow borked and just need fixing. I'd say we're 75 percent of the way there though :)

I did some research on what might have been causing Inkscape to start super slowly on my otherwise snappy Arch system, and I found that having a large number of fonts installed was a major culprit. I did one test with only a few basic fonts installed, and it started in about 2 seconds. Then I installed the google fonts from the AUR and that number jumped to 9 seconds. Wow.

Yeah, I'm shocked that they haven't resolved it yet, since apparently many other programs cache the fonts and only have a slow first startup. All subsequent startups are fast.
