An answer to this question is to swap User=nobody not with User=ziga but with User=root in /etc/systemd/system/battery.service. Somehow even if user ziga has all the privileges of using sudo command it can't execute systemctl hibernate inside of the bash script. I really don't know why this happens. So the working files are as follows: /etc/systemd/system/...

As pointed out above, either install sensible terminal or xterm, if you choose to use xterm then you need to edit your i3config file accordingly. When you've edited your config you need to refresh it by using Mod + shift + R for the changes to take effect. Then you should be all set. EDIT Of course you need to be able to use a terminal in the first place,...

The i3 environment isn't usable in the case described because there's no way to get to a shell. This is a graphical environment (X also known as X11) running in one of Linux's virtual consoles. To switch to a text environment and get a shell, use controlalt together with a function-key for the number of the virtual console that you want to switch to. Most ...

You have windows, its not important. You have ubuntu. after installing arch, you can go to ubuntu and perform #update-grub grub will be smart enough to detect the existing arch installation using OS Prober. Boot via grub > choose arch

That's because there is no package by that name. What are you trying to do? Are you following one of the official guides?

As per the Manjaro Wiki entry on bootloader configuration: To deal with windows partitions, you will need to install the mtools and os-prober utilities: pacman -S mtools os-prober Then run the grub auto-update utility, which will now be able to access your windows partition update-grub Note: The config file /boot/grub/menu.lst is used by the old grub, ...

I've come across some instances where /var/lib/nfs or /var/lib/nfs/statd has been missing, which causes certain NFS daemons to exit with an error code but without printing any message. The fix is simple, just this: $ sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/nfs/statd But it's a bit odd that the daemons and systemd service files don't attempt to create the directories or ...

For me it worked to set the acceleration method of my intel driver to uxa. By creating /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf With the contents: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection I got this from here. It was bugging my VirtualBox but also my Firefox. You can also check this....

First, the b43-firmware package is kept within the AUR, the Arch User Repository. For how to install packages from the AUR, you should check the Arch wiki. Second, the command "pacman -Ss" searches packages as opposed to "pacman -S", which installs packages. Finally, you should check if b43-firmware or b43-firmware-classic better supports your card as can be ...

Before the check for "$sysmodmap" in your .xinitrc, add the setxkbmap line.

I don't have enough reputation to comment yet. Have you tried setting a 104-key layout instead of 105, or vice-versa? On 105-key layouts, there is a key between left shift and 'Z'. If I recall correctly, this is the key code generated by what would be the tilde key on a 104-key layout.

The answer to your question is actually on the ArchISO page you linked: Installing packages "You will want to create a list of packages you want installed on your live CD system. A file full of package names, one-per-line, is the format for this. This is great for special interest live CDs, just specify packages you want in packages.both and bake the image."...

If you are intent on scraping the hash off the page, then something like this will work. It's the sort of one-liner I write for one-off use, because it's likely to break as soon as the layout changes: hashsum=$(curl http://php.net/downloads.php | grep -A1 -F ">php-${pkgver}.tar.xz<" | sed 1d | tr '>' '<' | cut -d '<' -f3 ) To ...

From what I can see from the dmesg it's not setting up the wlan network card at all. Use the command "rfkill list" to see if the card is soft blocked or hard blocked , if it's hard blocked try switching it on from the button otherwise use the command "rfkill unblock wifi".

A good alternative to Dropbox might be Synchthing, which syncs one or several folders between a cluster of machines (even some mobile phones). More information about running Synchthing on Arch Linux can be found on the Arch Linux wiki page on exactly this topic.

Per my setup, I had two systemd network unit files: one for the bridged adapter and one for the host-only adapter. I wanted the bridged adapter to have a dynamic address because the virtual machine is on a laptop that moves between networks, and I wanted the host-only adapter to have a static address so that I could access it, such as by ssh, without having ...

Commands started in a shell session will have stdout and stderr (standard output and error) connected to that session.

CLTM might be required if your corporate proxy uses NTLM from Microsoft.

Confirm your system has the following file: /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.nemo.gschema.xml If so, run (as root): # glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.nemo.gschema.xml

The arch installation media should help you here. Boot into it and follow the directions to mount your encrypted drive and then arch-chroot into the system. Once you are in, you could disable gdm.services. Alternatively, you could install the proper drivers. To be sure that the driver is the problem, you might want to check your logs while you're in there.

I would welcome links for supporting documentation on this, as I cannot find it on rsyslog.com's site. It is apparent from OP's testing, though, that rsyslog (with the given configuration) will refuse to create new files; to enable logging to those files, create them first (e.g. touch /var/log/local4.log). This has cropped up before in: How to tell rsyslog ...

You should stick to a manual installation using makepkg and understand how the compilation and installation process from the AUR works before using an AUR helper. Anyway, you have to import the PGP signature of the package before you install it. You can install the package without verifying its PGP signature but you shouldn't do it. You can import the PGP ...

I was able to recover from my situation and here is what I did. I grabbed the bootable SD card on which I still had the Arch Linux iso and booted into it. There, I created a folder /mnt/arch and mounted my root to it. I also mounted my home partition into /mnt/arch/home, but that was probably not needed. At this point, I used 'arch-chroot /mnt/arch' to ...

I found your solution on the Arch wiki: Out of the box, systemd-logind will catch power key and lid switch events and handle them: it will shut down the Chromebook on a power key press, and a suspend on a lid close.

I would advise to use a solid proxying tool for all (or most) of your proxy needs. $ proxychains4 yaourt -S application proxychains-ng works well - but be sure to configure proxychains.conf before using.

LTS does not mean that there will be no upgrades coming. LTS means that the packages will get minor upgrades to fix bugs and security problems when the 'standard' support for the version has stopped.

You would have to use a systemd service to run your application during boot process.

You can add the applications you want to automatically start when booting the system by adding them to Startup Applications in the tweak-tool - open the Tweak Tool from Activities launcher : Alternatively copy a .desktop file from /usr/share/applications/ to ~/.config/autostart/.

Use Ubuntu live usb. Open gparted and format partition that you used for Arch.

There is no need to uninstall anything. You simply need to install Ubuntu and once you chose the partition to install on (your current ArchLinux partition), the installer will give you the option to format it.
