Announcements / Re: Artix Linux new flavor with Gnome Desktop ISO
Last post by mandog -
You have done a nice job with this its great to see a gnome openrc version.

Allas its not without a few niggles
The theme you use really slows things down like opening apps and a delay in closing apps
This is the theme I use Mc-OS-Transparent-1.3  dark theme with a hint of background transparency 

I'm glad you enabled Bluetooth out the box as it should be in gnome
Good work keep it up.

FWIW, most people in the Artix TG group use kotatogram-desktop.
On fresh instalation of Artix-Plasma-Runit, kotatogram-desktop also does not work

Installation / Migration / Configuration / Re: LiveCD bug on a BIOS PC: "Installed BIOS-System on" gets stuck
Last post by OpenYes -
Try to boot any Artix ISO on PC without UEFI , that SystemD of a BIOS world  ;) :
either VirtualBox/QEMU, or old PC, or - even better - any PC with an opensource coreboot BIOS with SeaBIOS payload (modern legacy-style BIOS without bloated/backdoored UEFI crap).
Then try to choose the "Installed BIOS-System on" menu entry. You'll get a black square and PC will be forever stuck on it.
Also, in that list once I saw an icon which looked like a "Menu key"

but when you press Enter when this option is selected - nothing seems to happen:
just a screen refreshes and your selection returns on "keytable=us" for some reason.
Same thing for the unselectable empty lines below and above that "Installed BIOS-System on".

If I choose "From CD/DVD/ISO: artix.x86_64" - the LiveCD boots OK and I'm able to install & use Artix,
but it would be nice if someone could fix the LiveCD problems mentioned above

I have a similar situation:


I choose "From CD/DVD/ISO or the other option nothing happen. It noticed 30 wait till.... and then nothing happen anymore.

Applications & Software / unzip not working by right clicking
Last post by rpallen -
I just installed Artix/XFCE/s6.  I tried extracting a file by right clicking it and selecting "extract here".  I got an error message something like there was no program to extract it.  I installed unzip (sudo pacman -S unzip) and tried again with the same result.  However, I was able to extract the file with unzip in the terminal (unzip with no problem.  Why won't it work from the right-click menu?
S6 / Re: Change PATH for services in s6
Last post by crinklywrappr -
Exporting the path in /etc/s6/current/scripts/rc.init before s6-rc-init is called doesn't work?

I tried that and it didn't work.  s6 logged many messages it was unable to find nix-daemon.

Code: [Select]
export PATH=/nix/var/nix/profiles/default/bin:$PATH
s6-rc-init -c /etc/s6/rc/compiled /run/service

I would personally symlink the binaries to /usr/bin instead of changing PATH

That's a good suggestion, If something goes wrong during the init process I don't have to worry about accidentally running the wrong binary.  The tradeoff is that collisions are more likely when installing packages.

But this is something I'm already dealing with wrt configuration files.  I'll have to give it some thought.
Installation / Migration / Configuration / grub-kbdcomp: ckbcomp: command not found
Last post by castilma -
I'm on EFI with a fully encrypted (except ESP) system. I want to change the keyboard layout in the first grub phase, where it asks for the diskpassword.

I'm trying to follow  this answer, but I get

Code: [Select]
$ grub-kbdcomp -o /tmp/de.gkb de
/usr/bin/grub-kbdcomp: line 76: ckbcomp: command not found
ERROR: no valid keyboard layout found. Check the input.

Where do I get the ckbcomp command from?

I have grub 2:2.04-7.

Well looks like restarting the router fixed it even tough all my other devices worked perfectly. Marking it as solved
