No, that is not normal. How did you setup plymouth, did you use the wiki entry?
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/plymouth

If so, did you noticed that there is a warning about it containing serious bugs? I would suggest that you use a different graphical boot application but until then... Can you post a link to the output of journactll -xe ?

Hello. Just switched from Antergos to Arch. Not all went as smoothly as I thought but not as tricky as I was afraid of 😁
But one thing is missing, my Bluetooth stick is not found. I already installed bluez and gnome Bluetooth and have a Bluetooth entry in settings. What else do I need for my stick to be recognized by the system and get the Bluetooth section in the system applet.

It seems, the arch boot stick made a little trouble. I unplugged it and now USB works fine. Maybe Arch has some trouble with to much connected usb devices? I have Mouse, Keyboard, X-Box Controller and Bluetooth

+Carlos Silva ultimately I was wanting the source code, for my review and potential cherry-picking of commits.

Hello guys! I just installed Arch on my main machine. I have a text file created witch pacman which contains all installed packages. Now I want pacman to install everything from this list which is not installed or not up to date. I already did this before with pacman - S - - needed $(cat PathToFile.txt). But now it doesn't work. Pacman seems to ignore everything in the file which is not installed and of course skips installes packages. What could be wrong?

I know it should as it is exactly what my script does, and what it already did on severel Antergos installations. But today it doesn't work that way, for some reason it only checks already installed packages and then aborts because of the --needed flag. Without that flag it reinstalles all the packages from the list which are already installed. Btw with yaourt I also have to wrap it into a for loop, otherwise it doesn't work....
No big deal, because with that for loop pacman works like expected, but it's odd...

+Diego Terzano please do not suggest that to others here as Manjaro is not Arch Linux. Discussion of any derivative is not welcome here and goes against the rules.

Hello everybody!

I'm thinking of switching from Antergos to Arch. I already repeated the install in VM sever times to get used to it. What I would need advice for is if I can keep my /home Partition as it is without getting any issues? Right now I have Antergos with GNOME installed and would like to install Arch with GNOME

I'm thinking of getting an LG V10 soon. I was wandering if anyone has one that can tell me if usb debugging works on arch. I looked at the udev rule file for thr Android-udev package but i see no mention, unless i missed it, on that file of the LG V10. So, does anyone have one that can confirm if it works on not. Thanks

Disclaimers, et al. These opinions are not at all related to Arch Linux, though maintaining Arch packages has certainly colored my opinions. I've been a volunteer maintainer for years now, because I feel it helps people. I have a bias towards the value that maintainers and maintaining packages ...

Most of these have easy installs from AUR
GNOME Shell has some good looks by default, but it can be better. Themes are CSS packages to style your desktop, and here are ten of the best.

I love the Dell XPS 13 (2016) that Dell gave me on loan. But installing Arch Linux with UEFI enabled can be challenging for new users — especially since ‘grub’ doesn’t work on this system with Arch Linux. I talked to a lot of people in the Arch community and resorted to using systemd-boot for successful install.

Here's how I got Arch Linux running on the Dell XPS 13 laptop.
The easiest, step-by-step tutorial for installing Arch Linux on a Dell XPS 13 laptop.

+altermetax grub in the repos doesnt seem to have nvme support.
grub-git in the aur does, and many distros backport it.

I was hoping she had a charcoal colored cap (or other dark gray). I was going to have the logo put on in a black thread. Black on gray would have looked awesome too. She is Cary's Kids Embroidery on Facebook. She's pretty reasonable if anyone wants one.

Hello ,

I just posted a thread in Arch Forums. If you can please read it and help me.

Thanks !
Hello ,. Im kind a newbie to Arch. I have both onboard soundcard and a Seperate sound card on my computer. But i have disabled the onboard soundcard by BIOS. According to the Wiki 'ALSA' should detect the driver and sound should work by default. But it didnt.

Modularized Awesome WM Configuration


This dotfiles might help beginner learn Awesome Window Manager. Let's have a look at these tutorials below.

I just want to share the knowledge. I hope you like it. Although, tiling window manager is not for everyone. It is your choice (and right), to learn, or not to learn.

What do you think ?

# Configuration Source

  Just clone it, and it should work in your desktop.

# Awesome WM Installation

  For those who never use Awesome. First, you need to install the Window Manager.

  It is out of topic, and you can skip this step, if you already know how to Install Awesome.

  Note that, the Awesome WM Wiki is more than enough.

Hello everyone! Forgiveness for my English made by Google Translate. OK, let's go! I've been using Arch Linux + KDE Plasma 5. When did the KDE installation was version 5.6. When I upgraded to version 5.7.0 I noticed all the changes to the new version, such as the integration agenda with the calendar. However, after the 5.7.1 and 5.7.2 updates, my KDE again had the appearance of 5.6. Someone went through this problem?
