So I'd thought I'd take another trip around Antergos. Ran the live version on an install alongside Mint. Cinnamon is my DE of choice and pretty much non-negotiable. All installed fine first time with Cnchi, which is a massive improvement on the last time I tried it out. However, everytime I try to log in with LightDM, I enter my password and it may returns to LightDM after a few seconds. Any ideas? I'm entering the correct password 100%,so that's not it.

Hi, VLC is always my goto player on my Android devices & my Linux boxes. Any closer to sorting Chromecast support, especially on Android, then I'd never have to use a separate player, for that of which there are many, and go back to solely using VLC?

Yes, it is possible, because you can hw decode and reencode on the fly.

Ok, so I've extensively & thoroughly checked this...If I don't have Google Chrome mobile installed, I do not need Android System Webview installed in the slightest! Provided you have other Browsers(in my case Flyperlink & Dolphin) a lot of my apps work better, and as I'd like them & wouldn't if I had Chrome installed, because I don't get to choose which browser works with them otherwise. Apart from anything else, a lot less resources being used..

Nothing major, I just don't need it because I don't have Chrome mobile installed. I sync my Chrome Linux Desktop with Dolphin Sync. ASW would indeed be useful if I used Chrome at all but, quite often because of its very function and framework as an in app web viewer, it removes the choice of opening up a link to Flyperlink/Linkbubble/Flynx etc. I can see the use case for it, although Chromer takes things to the next level, but it certainly isn't the absolutely essential system app that Google presents it as. In fact, for me, it's a bloody nuisance...

Will RR 6.* be coming to the LG G3 international version 855?

My very Gnome 3ish Linux Mint 17.2 Desktop: Ambiance Blackout Flat GTK theme, Numix Purple Reign Cinnamon Theme(my own custom fork), Flattr icons(my custom fork) and Material Wallpaper(custom). I use Cinnadock extension and hot corners on the bottom for workspace & window switching. I've basically taken all the stuff from different DEs that I like and combined them in one. Cinnamon gives me that freedom whereas others don't, except for maybe KDE. The main thing I love about Cinnamon is that it actually gets lighter on resources with each iteration, especially since Mint 17...

P. S. Yes indeed, I love purple, but going to the trouble forking a Cinnamon Theme and using Inkscape to edit icons etc. was a bit much...

Altan & the Resurrection Remix team are absolute bosses. I honestly can't see myself wanting to use another rom on my LG G3 anytime soon. RR is hands down the best custom rom I ever flashed...

Please can you hit me up with a link for an apk file of the new premium alpha? I think that's a much easier way to get it out to your loyal users, than waiting for approval from Instagram & Google to approve it.

+Luca H+Luan Teles​ I think that's because the developer doesn't want people buying into an "alpha” experience. That would lead to some bad reviews.

Switched my back & recents button around to get ready for when my S7 Edge arrives. Why oh why do Samsung have the buttons the wrong way around?!

Hi Altan and team.
So it's like this...Your great work made my G3(855) into a fantastic device especially from 5.1.1 and so my next prospective device depends completely on RR rom support. So, what sort of time frame am I looking at for a rock solid build for the Nexus 6P (Anglerfish)? I think that's probably gonna be my next handset...

well either way, if you're evaluating your next device based on its potential custom ROM compatibility..you really can't go wrong w/ the 6p. From what I can tell, it is the uncontested flagship of choice used by the developers themselves. So I'd imagine it will have dependable/stable support in any flavor you like :]

I should have stated that I work nights &, my phone wasn't on standby next to my bed when I took the screenshot, I'd just arrived home from work. I'd also make it clear that both Greenify & Amplify were running with Xposed...

I have little phases distro hopping on Arch or its derivatives such as Manjaro, Antergos etc, but I always either start on Cinnamon DE or end up on it after trying something else. Then, usually I run into one issue or another and find myself back on Linux Mint because I need shit to just work and get sick of having to roll back updates & then holding back more packages by editing Pacman.conf file! I've stopped fighting it now, my Mint/Cinnamon set up is spot on albeit with a shit load of PPAs and the latest Kernel added. In a time when other desktop environments are getting more resource heavy, even the supposed lighter ones, Mint has actually made Cinnamon much lighter with each update from 17 onwards. My desktop runs at about 300mb most of the time which is pretty damn great for such a modern DE with so many options. As a side note, Antergos ran Cinnamon DE more perfectly than any other distro other than Mint itself and the out of the box Numix theming gives a much better first impression than the very dated stock theming in Mint.
