Hi all.. I have a problem with Plasma 5.7 in my Arch installation.

Every time when I log in the KDE, the panel shadows are not active (see screenshots). I need to press "Alt+Shift+F12" until the shadow appears.

It's a normal behavior or a know problem?

Thanks for all help!

How many of us started with Arch using a combination of the beginners guide, the installation guide and/or a written guide to those guides? There have been a lot of guides published, some of us have even written one for ourselves at least.

There is a lot of room for one of those guides right now, and this is a good chance to help with the wiki. The supposedly merged beginners guide and installation guide is all of many of need, if we just need to look up what we've already learned but want to look at the detail of.

The beginners guide may not have been planned for this use but I think a lot of users only got to being experienced Arch users because that guide was more than a collection of organized links. The wiki is still the best there is, just a little bit less so.

I know UEFI issues and it's near the start of installation so I looked at it using the new installation guide. I'm positive I would have to provide more detail and explanation to a user having trouble than is now provided. Maybe there aren't other issues like that though.

There are a number of Arch installers these days, Arch-Anywhere, Antergos, etc. An effect of this change may be that more users go that route and need more help afterward because they don't learn as much during the installation(s). Maybe it won't make any difference.

Okay, I've been trying to solve this on my own for a long time but I can't seem to even find the culprit.

Situation:

I have a Zotac ZBox ID45 with Arch and KDE Plasma 5 installed connected to my home cinema system via HDMI and the home cinema system relays video and audio to my TV, whenever turned on. This works flawlessly if the computer and the home cinema system are both turned on together.

However if the computer is left on and the home cinema system turned off (TV is irrelevant, as the home cinema handles the connection to the PC) KDE or Arch (I'm not sure which at this point) "forgets" it has a monitor. So when the home cinema system is switched back on, I cannot get any image. It's just "No signal". The solution is to switch to TTY and back to graphical (CTRL+ALT+F2 then F1), but 9 times out of 10, I will get back into KDE and find it completely locked up. I can move the mouse around, but nothing happens if I click, and all applications are locked up (for instance, Youtube movies will have frozen, streams are frozen and no animations move). The ONLY thing that moves is the mouse pointer.

I've tried killing Plasma Shell from the console but it appears to do nothing at all, at least not visually. So I'm not sure if it's the nouveau driver that locks up or if it's KDE. However if it was the driver then the mouse pointer shouldn't move and if it's KDE, why does killing Plasma Shell not help?

Anyway, if you guys have any theories I would be very grateful!

The situation seems familiar to something that happened to me, i used a short script that toggled the outputs like seen here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/xrandr

Dear all,
This might seem trivial but i'll ask for a bit of advice on this. I have two Arch installations. One on my home laptop and another installation on virtualbox on my office laptop (which i experiment with, i like it like that).

Was wandering if anyone has cloned/fully backed up and restored their installation before to another laptop?

I've read through these articles:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Migrate_installation_to_new_hardware and https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Disk_cloning

So just wanted know any "gatchas" i might experience or any experience from any of you?

Reason being i can only go ahead and run a fresh install to replicate my current installation on my home laptop in approx 4-6 months, as i have my home laptop configured to a nice sweet spot.
This article discusses the steps required for moving an Arch Linux system to new hardware. The goal is to achieve the same ArchLinux installation, as far as installed software and configuration is concerned. There are two different approaches to migrating an installation:.

What can this be? Whenever I install Arch worked out, I downloaded the iso this month I install and gave it.


Sorry for my bad English

Is there any way to configure network specific proxy settings on XFCE?

I currently do it via environment variables in /etc/security/pam_env.conf.

I use NetworkManager for network management and mostly use WiFi on my laptop. I want it to be able to properly use proxy for the whole environment when I am on a particular network

Hi folks!

My brother (+Fernando Fernandez) and I have been working again on the Gnome Alpha Versions repository for Arch Linux. We have already package and upload all packages that release the first beta of this development cycle (3.21.90).

It works pretty well both on wayland and X.org session.

Rigth now we uploaded both x86_64 and i686 packages.

We hope that this could help to make easier to test alpha and beta releases of Gnome.

If you want to try it, at your own risk, you should add this lines to you /etc/pacman.conf:

[gnome-devel]
Server = http://softwareperonista.com.ar/repo/archlinux/gnome-devel/$arch

Import and sign the new public key:

# pacman-key -r DDCE9FD63370080B
# pacman-key --lsign-key DDCE9FD63370080B

If you want to back to stable version you jut have to delete or comment the [gnome-devel] entry in your /etc/pacman.conf file and run:

# pacman -Syuu

Enjoy it!

Best regards!

We came to a new era for systems and we are the chance of it reaching im point boundless reaches of monopoly , it is in our hands now , the behind years was the reign of Windows by me for you this is changing and the more fast this happens more they will deliver today many project are not developed with driver for linux , most no longer want Windows to front the pilot must be linux comes in so many lies.

I have set up my wifi on laptop to use static IP with google DNS servers. It works fine only until I use pidgin for my Lync account. With google dns servers it just doesn't work.

Is there any way to get pidgin (sipe/office communicator/lync) to work using Google's DNS Servers?
