Installation and personal configuration of Antergos GNOME [ISO April 2015]


I have tried many distros since I entered the world of GNU / Linux, and I have always wondered if there is a rolling-release well done.

The best I have tried is, without any doubt, KaOS. It is not perfect, but it is the closest thing to perfection. The problem is that KaOS is focused only on 64 bits and KDE. Is there a decent rolling-release for GNOME? A few days ago I found the answer: Yes, Antergos.

As I decided to quit Fedora, I installed it to test it, and except for some very specific problems on my PC, the result has been spectacular. Here I offer everyone the installation and configuration of Antergos as I like. Enjoy ;).


Antergos is a GNU / Linux distribution based on Arch. That means it's rolling-release, all the software is up-to-date and it has one of the largest repositories, along with the fastest package manager: Pacman.

In addition to "inheriting" Arch features, Antergos has its own installer (Cnchi), with which you can easily install it and choose your favorite desktop environment (no more than one ISO for each environment!).

About the design, Antergos brings by default Numix icons and themes (If you don't like it, you can change it), although I have to admit that at first it seemed strange to me, then it seemed perfect: Simple and elegant. In the case of GNOME it also has some extensions pre-installed.

In this guide you will learn how to install Antergos with GNOME exactly how i like it. I am not going to start to separate the commands, explain them one by one, etc. etc. I'll get to the point. The resulting system will have all the software that I consider the most suitable, of higher quality, so if you do not agree with me, you can always change it for the one you use when you finish the guide.

The final result will be this:

With this guide all icons will be Numix. Everyone. I have taken care of correcting those that do not load well and even having a friend design the one for PPSSPP, which was missing.

What software will you have applying this guide?

Cool? So let's go!

Installation of Antergos and all software

The installation has no mystery; I would say that Antergos has the best installer of all the distros. If you have already installed Ubuntu, Fedora or another easy to install, Antergos will be a piece of cake. Remember to choose GNOME (which is what this guide is intended for). When I ask you what additional software you want, leave it like this:


Then touch the configuration of the partitions (which gives you the option to do them automatically or manually), then your user data and finally the installation. When it finishes, it will ask you to restart and you will be in your newly installed Antergos.

After logging in for the first time (you will notice that it is not GDM, but a LightDM with its own design) a window will appear asking you if you want update the name of the folders to Spanish. Check "Don't ask me this again" and update the names:


After we update using the "Software Update" program. It is preferable that you always do it with that program, since it also updates the AUR packages that we install. Anyway, Antergos brings a notification system that will notify you every time you have to update. Once i finish, restart and open a terminal. Run the following:

sudo gedit /etc/pacman.conf

The Pacman configuration file will open. Our objective is activate the Multilib repository (if you use 32 bits DO NOT do this), which we will do by deleting the "#" that appears at the beginning of these two lines:

[multilib] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

We save, close and update the repositories:

sudo pacman -Syu

Let's go with the graphics card drivers. If you don't use NVIDIA, you won't have to do anything at all, since the free (open) drivers are installed by default, which work quite well on most graphics. In the event that you use NVIDIA and you want to use the proprietary driver (closed), you will have to use one command or another depending on the model you have.

Packages beginning with "lib32-" are 64-bit only

If you are using a modern NVIDIA:

sudo pacman -R xf86-video-nouveau && sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-libgl nvidia-utils opencl-nvidia libvdpau mesa-vdpau lib32-nvidia-libgl lib32-nvidia-utils lib32-opencl-nvidia lib32-libvdpau lib32-mesa- vdpau

If you are using an old NVIDIA (check here!, on supported products):

sudo pacman -R xf86-video-nouveau && sudo pacman -S nvidia-340xx nvidia-340xx-libgl nvidia-340xx-utils opencl-nvidia-340xx libvdpau mesa-vdpau lib32-nvidia-340xx-libgl lib32-nvidia-340xx-utils lib32-opencl-nvidia-340xx lib32-libvdpau lib32-table-vdpau

In both cases it will ask you if it replaces two packages that are in conflict. Tell everyone yes. If your graphics is still older than the ones that need the 340 driver, it is likely that Nouveau (the free driver) works well enough for you. Finally, in the case of any NVIDIA with a proprietary driver, you must Reiniciar.

Sorry to say I have nothing for NVIDA Optimus users. On a friend's laptop with that technology the LiveCD didn't even load, so I couldn't even test how Bumblebee works :(.

We uninstall software that we are not going to use or that has superior alternatives:

sudo pacman -R pidgin cmake empathy totem gnome-disk-utility gnome-documents gnome-photos gnome-music bijiben

We install all the software in a single command (remember that if you use 32 bits the packages that start with "lib32-" you don't have to install them):

sudo pacman -S git mercurial lsdvd libdvbpsi libdvdread libdvdnav gnome-calendar gnome-clocks mpv gimp inkscape mypaint pinta calligra-krita rawtherapee blender synfigstudio simple-scan minetest 0ad supertuxkart audacity ardour pitivi frei-es plugins-geogn-plugins fire-plugins es plugins -plugins easytag filezilla flashplugin lib0-flashplugin gnome-font-viewer gparted virtualbox virtualbox-host-modules virtualbox-host-dkms linux-headers vbam-gtk desmume dolphin-emu pcsxr pcsx18 ppsspp mupen32plus lib2-libcanberra-pulse lib64-libsapulse lib32-libsapulse -plugins dconf-editor skype evolution gnome-contacts

Don't forget to answer yes to the conflicting package questions.

To ensure that VirtualBox will work for us:

sudo systemctl enable dkms.service

sudo dkms autoinstall

Open the "Add / Remove software" program and install the "preload", "atom-editor" and "telegram-bin" packages from there. When asked if you want to modify certain configuration files, answer no. In some cases it will be enough to write the letter s o n, while in others you will have to press Intro. When finished we close it.

To activate Preload:

sudo systemctl enable preload.service

If you program in Haskell and you use PostgreSQL like me, also run this:

sudo pacman -S postgresql ghc cabal-install haddock happy alex

Finally, we install this extension to display the tray icons on the top bar. We reboot.

For the extraordinary "ide-haskell" package to work you have to run the following:

gedit ~ / .atom / config.cson

And add at the end of the file this (change "lajto" for your username):

'ide-haskell': 'ghcModPath': '/home/lajto/.cabal/bin/ghc-mod' 'stylishHaskellPath': '/home/lajto/.cabal/bin/stylish-haskell'

If you program in PL / pgSQL:

apm install language-pgsql

Fix Numix Icons Not Appearing

It appears that some launchers are not properly configured to use the Numix icons. But don't worry, we'll correct them!

Let's start with Telegram. We open the personal folder and press Ctrl + H. We go to .local / share / applications / and delete the Telegram launcher. We close the file explorer and execute:

gedit .local / share / applications / telegram.desktop

We copy the following text inside:

#! / usr / bin / env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Encoding = UTF-8 Name = Telegram Name [hr] = Telegram Exec = / opt / telegram / Telegram Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / telegram.svg Terminal = false Type = Application Categories = Application; StartupNotify = false

The following are easier.

For, Ardor we execute "sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/ardour.desktop" and modify Icon so that it is "Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / ardour.svg".

For, HPLip we execute "sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/hplip.desktop" and modify Icon so that it is "Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / hplip.svg".

If you use NVIDIA closed, we execute "sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nvidia-settings.desktop" and modify Icon so that it is "Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / nvidia.svg"

We modify the Icon of the three launchers Avahi to put it as "Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / network-workgroup.svg":

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/bssh.desktop

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/bvnc.desktop

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/avahi-discover.desktop

Finally we have the icon of PPSSPP... Unfortunately Numix didn't design it, but don't worry! I asked a friend to design it and uploaded it to a GitHub repository. To add the icon to your Antergos pack simply run the following commands:

cd / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps /

sudo wget -O ppsspp-numix-icon-by-kaero.svg

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/ppsspp.desktop

We modify Icon so that it is "Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / ppsspp-numix-icon-by-kaero.svg". Ready!

EXTRA: World of Warcraft


Do you play WoW? Then, we are already two! It is horrible to have to use a dual boot with Windows only and exclusively to play, so here I will explain how to use Wine to be able to play it in the most optimized way possible.

To begin, go to the game folder, go to WTF / and add the following to the end of the file:

SET gxAPI "OpenGL"

Then move the WoW folder to your personal folder and rename it to ".wow-folder" without the quotes. Then we install Wine (packages starting with "lib32-" are only for 64 bits):

sudo pacman -S wine winetricks wine_gecko wine-mono lib32-mpg123 lib32-libldap lib32-libtxc_dxtn lib32-libpulse lib32-openal lib32-alsa-lib lib32-alsa-plugins lib32-libxml2 lib32-giflib lib32-libpng lib32-gnutls

We configure Wine to work with 32 bits (a window will open, we just close it and that's it):

WINEARCH = win32 winecfg

We install typical program dependencies with Wine (when windows open, we accept everything and continue):

winetricks vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 vcrun6 corefonts fontfix

Now we will create an SH file that runs the game in the most optimized way possible (change "lajto" to your username).

If you don't use closed NVIDIA:

echo "WINEDEBUG = -all wine /home/lajto/.wow-wotlk/wow.exe -opengl $> / dev / null" >> ~ / .wow-wotlk /

On the other hand, if you use closed NVIDIA, we can optimize it even more:

echo "WINEDEBUG = -all __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS = 1 wine /home/lajto/.wow-wotlk/wow.exe -opengl $> / dev / null" >> ~ / .wow-wotlk /
In my case, which uses closed NVIDIA, I was surprised how optimized it was. In Windows 7 the game was at 45 FPS with the quality in medium-low. On the other hand, in Antergos with the optimization that I just showed, it goes to 60 FPS with the quality at maximum. Awesome.

Finally, we create the launcher (change "lajto" for your username):

gedit .local / share / applications / wow-wotlk.desktop
#! / usr / bin / env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Encoding = UTF-8 Name = World of Warcraft Name [hr] = World of Warcraft Exec = sh /home/lajto/.wow-wotlk/ Icon = / usr / share / icons / Numix-Square / scalable / apps / WoW.svg Terminal = false Type = Application Categories = Application; Game; StartupNotify = false

You have your World of Warcraft ready in Antergos!

    Excellent article! I'm also a WoW freak, but on linux I never got it to work :(.
    I will try this method, hopefully it works….

    For the Lol (League of legends) can you get Windows-like performance?

    1.    Lajto said

      I don't play LoL, so I can't help you there :(. Greetings.

  2.   joaco said

    Wtf? Wasn't Fedora the best?

    1.    Lajto said

      There is no such thing as "the best." In my case, it seemed the best option to develop a project in Haskell and PostgreSQL, since I need modern software to work and I wanted to carry the philosophy of using the same operating system on the PC as on the server.

      The fact is that in the end, after much study, on the server I will use DragonFlyBSD, which will allow me to considerably increase the performance of PostgreSQL. Given that fact, it is not necessary for me to use the same OS on the PC as on the server, since DragonFlyBSD does not work with my graphics card. At this the door opens (I will probably stay on Debian 8). Antegos I just tried it on the go.

      I know that many of you do not understand the constant change of distribution, but it seems fantastic to me that GNU / Linux users can change so much. Not only does it allow us to try out new and different technologies, but it allows us to switch major distro when our old choice "misbehaves." So the projects are put the batteries;).

      A greeting.

      1.    joaco said

        I know that there is no best, but a couple of days ago you put it as the best thing that ever happened to you ...
        Debian or CentOS / RHEL are the best for servers, you know that you will not have problems.

      2.    Lajto said

        It is the best there is: 3. It is one of my favorites.

  3.   Raul P said

    A simple question; Antegos gives the possibility of multiboot.?

    1.    Lajto said

      If by multiboot you mean to load more than one operating system from GRUB, I suppose so, as in all ô.o distros.

  4.   Elche said

    Impeccable article, I congratulate you. I am using Antergos Gnome and it seems to me the best option in the derivatives of Arch, it is really excellent, the aesthetics and integration of the applications are perfect. Regards.

    1.    Lajto said

      Many thanks! I completely agree with you, from derivatives of Arch, Antergos is the most successful: P.

  5.   Victor LLore said

    Great entry, I love Antergos, my problems were not being able to install steam, and change the nvidia drivers to proprietary (the latter solved thanks to you). What the installer lacks is the option to select drivers and a tool like Manjaro Settings Manager, to easily install the kernel that will benefit us the most. Greetings and thanks.

    1.    Lajto said

      I'm glad it was useful to you! Luckily, Antergos / Arch has automated the configuration of the NVIDIA closed drivers, so it is accomplished by simply installing a few packages: P.

      A greeting.

  6.   Donnie said

    How do I change the side of the close, minimize and maximize buttons on the windows menu bar?

    Thank you

    1.    Lajto said

      If you mean put them on the left, I doubt it's possible. GNOME's design is conservative in this regard, since it mixes the interface of the programs with the buttons you say, making it impossible to change places. I guess there is no other option but to hold on x).

      A greeting.

  7.   Ivan Barra said

    Excellent post comrade, pucha ... I wish there was a KaOS multilib with 32bit, there are many applications that do not run because it is only 64bit, Steam for example and for a gamer like me, without Steam, there is no life.


  8.   jujes said

    Hello! the tutorial has come to my mind. I only have to know how to install goto: someone who can help me? nothing happens after "make install"

    From already thank you very much.

    1.    jujes said

      Here I found the answer to my question:

      The solution is this:
      $ wget -O ""
      $ unzip
      $ cd goto-master
      $ Make install
      # its
      # cp goto / usr / bin
      # exit

    Excellent guide for those who want to get started in Antergos Gnome. The biggest problem that I see, in my view, of course, are the extensions. They are important to leave the distro to your liking, but you also have to learn English. A good work on Fedora Gnome was also published here recently, and you really want to try both. I imagine that to install any distribution of this type you have to have a computer that is up to date in terms of hardware.

  10.   jony127 said

    A very currada guide but what a job to have a ready distro to your liking to use, right?

    With how easy it is to install the nvidia drivers in another distro …… .. in short, I still do not see the grace to this type of distros. What a pain in the ass to make them ready, instead of making things easier for the user, which is the duty of every operating system.

    Just by looking at the list of packages that must be installed to have the nvidia drivers and I'm already using it.

    1.    Lajto said

      I agree with you. What's more, I would dare to say that none of them leaves the system ready. I've tried dozens of distros, and I've had to do things like that with ALL. If I enter the Staff of a distro we all freak out, because I would spend 24 hours optimizing it and leaving good programs by default xDDDD. It would also automate the installation of drivers and many things. But for now it does not touch. In the future I plan to make my own operating system, which is part of my future project, so let's see how everything will be then.

      Greetings ^^.

    It shows that you are a thick in linux and more in Antergos, I commit my problem, after installing and solving the common GRUB problem of this distro, it loads the system but the screen remains blank and only the mouse pointer

    Then I enter the desktop by commands with: Ctrl + Add + F2 and I can navigate commonly, until I update the system ... but I cannot solve the white screen problem

    I have an Atom processor, and INTEL video, the drivers are installed, (I reinstalled them too) and nothing ...

    Any advice? thank you very much

    1.    Lajto said

      I have no idea what your problem may be. A few questions:

      - What GRUB problem are you referring to?
      - You have LightDM installed and configured correctly, right? You haven't touched anything about it, have you?

      The only thing I can think of is that LightDM gives you some kind of problem. I tried to change it to GDM, but I ran into a bug that always interprets my password incorrectly: S.

      You can try to do the following from the text mode terminal with Ctrl + Alt + F2:

      $ sudo systemctl stop lightdm.service

      $ sudo pacman -R lightdm gnome-shell-extension-lockscreen-lightdm lightdm-webkit-theme-antergos lightdm-webkit2-greeter

      $ sudo pacman -S lightdm gnome-shell-extension-lockscreen-lightdm lightdm-webkit-theme-antergos lightdm-webkit2-greeter

      $ sudo systemctl enable lightdm.service

      $ sudo reboot

      Try and tell me.

      Regarding the Intel drivers, you don't need to install them, since they come by default. Also, if you say you can access the desktop from the terminal, I don't think the graphics card drivers are the problem.


      1.    Ezequiel Simeoni said

        Thank you very much for answering, I can NOT enter from the desktop through the terminal, I meant that I can use it, enter folders, but all text, nothing graphic,

        The GRUB problem that I saw in many forums that happened to them, now I do not remember exactly what it said, but it was a problem that the grub could not start Antergos, I solved it by reinstalling grub in various ways until it worked, I do not think I have touched anything of LightDM, I don't even know what that is.

        Thanks, I'll try that and let you know how it went, I don't want to reinstall Antergos because it took me 3 or 4 hours to download from the internet, and layers I have the GRUB problem again.

        I'm looking at using OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, is it a good option?

      2.    joaco said

        I use OpenSUSE Tumbleweed and I can tell you that it is a very good option and very stable. The only thing that in the AUR you can find a little more software than in OpenSUSE.

    2.    José said

      I have the same problem with the latest version, after installing the drivers, after it says Ops a problem has occurred, it closes, and I have a black screen, I followed the steps they gave and it remains the same, I no longer know what to do , I cannot enter gnome, the login screen does not appear, everything in black, a blue upper right button and the mouse that can be seen, what else can I do ????

  12.   Yoyo said

    Excellent guide.

    Although in my installation of Antergos I do not require so many things, it looks very complete for those who need that "something else"

    I keep the background.

    A greeting.

  13.   Krlos kmarillo said

    From a particular point of view, do you think that antergos is ready to be used on a computer to work (workstation), or some other rollin release?

    Particular points that interest me the most are:

    -It is stable and remains stable and fast as when installed.

    - It doesn't break that easily.

    For your attention thanks.

    1.    Lajto said

      Without a doubt, the answer is yes. I have been using it for a few days and it does not give me any problem. Spectacular;).

      1.    Krlos kmarillo said

        Thanks for your answer.

      2.    Krlos kmarillo said

        Thanks for the reply.

    2.    jony127 said

      Hello, for me the answer is no, and not only for antergor but for any rolling. Because of your questions, I think the best thing for you is to opt for an lts (linux mint for example) or a distro with release every x months like opensuse, using these distros is more stable without a doubt than using a rolling one where you never know what problems can you wait after an update.

      Or if you are looking for a better rolling manjaro that its updates are more controlled.

        Thanks for the answer, I agree with you jony127, I was working with manjaro for a while or everything was fine until an update broke my system, so I think I'll keep my linuxmint kde. 🙂

    Excellent everything but ... I have amd graphics, in manjaro I install the easy catalyst but in the previous ones?

      Antergos is based on Arch. As Manjaro is too, the method should be the same :).

        What happens is that manjaro has a tool called Manjaro Configuration Manager, where the drivers appear according to the graph you have, just by choosing the one that corresponds you give it to install and it takes care of everything, it can also be installed and uninstalled The kernels in the same way, with a single click install it, geek must refer to that tool I think. And previously they do not have that manager.

    Very good info, good for your post about antergos, I thought and said I want to try this distro, well, I lowered the iso and the truth was I had many problems, first the cnchi was very nice but it happened to me or it closes only a few times, another problem I had It was with the boot partition and the last and most annoying that the repositories are very slow and in the installation it drops as 853 packages and it takes about 2 hours to download them and to make it worse when they finished downloading I threw an error and the installation was canceled .

      Nothing you say happened to me o_o. I see that other users have also had problems. I suppose it is because of the hardware, what are we going to do: S ...

    Hi lajto, I did not install the antergos but in my current elementary distro that still does not convince me too much thanks to you and I managed to make it work almost 100% Wow WOD so I'm happy = D

      I am very pleased! Whatever you tell me. I play daily on GNU / Linux, without a Windows partition or anything x).

    Good here I pass the steps to install bumblebee for Artegos / arch / manjaro since my screenshot with the method described here xd
    sudo pacman -S bumblebee bbswitch primus lib32-primus intel-dri xf86-video-intel nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils lib32-intel-dri
    sudo nano /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf
    and make sure that this Bridge = primus, Driver = nvidia
    and activate the service in systemd
    sudo systemctl enable bumblebeed
    in case of using a kernel-bfs install
    sudo pacman -S nvidia-bfs
    add user to bumblebee
    gpasswd -a user bumblebee and reboot
    activate nvidia with program

    Can the workspace selector be deactivated? I am used to doing it with only one.

    Hello, the Antergos is very interesting, and although it is true that the installation seems very simple, I was complicated at first, because it asks me to have an internet connection to continue, however, I do not see how to connect it via Wi-Fi, since it automatically Wi-Fi connectivity option does not appear. The laptop is old, a Dell Latitude D600 in which currently the old Windows XP runs with a barbaric fluency, but to which I want to put a nice and light linux.

    I await any suggestions, thanks.

      Hello! Antergos can only be installed with an internet connection. If you want to try a similar distro that allows you to install without internet, try Manjaro.

    Will my performance improve with previous versions or can you suggest another distro?
