I managed to solve this by using a wmctrl call at the end of my .zshrc file wmctrl -i -a $(wmctrl -l | grep Terminal | tail -n 1 | cut -d ' ' -f1) This forces the focus to the last openned windows with the name terminal (I guess the grep Terminal could be removed)

Sounds like you messed up your /etc/locale.gen file. If you are english/US, comment out any of the other entries in that file, UNLESS YOU NEED THEM. They are for other languages. If you are american you more then likely only need en_US.UTF8. Edit the /etc/locale.gen file and uncomment en_US.UTF8. Comment out any others, unless of course you need them ...

I don't know whether you use the command line or a GUI to install updates, but the upgrade process did print the following lines (from the install file linked in the other reply) on the screen: > systemd unit names have been renamed" > you should systemctl stop and disable cups.service and" > systemctl daemon-reload, start and enable ...

Ensure you have the .xinitrc file in the user home directory. It seems you have the .xinitrc in the root directory and not the users home directory. to verify this run ls -la in the user home directory. If you see a .xinitrc file inspect it using a text editor to see if it has the required content.

I've posted the answer to the Arch Linux forums: I think the issue is the nouveau drivers. I've switched back to nvidia and it's stable so far. The reason I switched away from nvidia in the first place was that Firefox had some stability issues. But that's better than the whole system freezing, so I'll stick with nvidia for now.

You should double check the permissions on /usr/bin/X, it should have SUID/GUID bits set: -rwsr-sr-x 1 root root 10184 Jan 3 2013 /usr/bin/X* change with sudo chmod ug+s /usr/bin/X

sorpass's wmctrl script works well for me (on CentOS 7 I just had to run 'yum install wmctrl' first). However I found that /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default only seemed to run only at logout, not shutdown. Therefore instead of using /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default I now call sorpass's wmctrl script from Seamus Phelan's python script which can be found at these two ...

Try installing the package xfce4-notifyd. You'll need to configure it with xfce4-notifyd-config as it says in the Arch wiki.

In cups v. 2.0.0 the service name has been changed (see also the install file here). You'll have to disable the old service: systemctl disable cups.service before enabling and starting the new one: systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service systemctl daemon-reload systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service

You cant access your WiFi adapter card from Virtualbox. You can only use some option like Bridge, NAT, etc.

See the options for -R (remove) in man pacman, notably -u: -u, --unneeded Removes targets that are not required by any other packages. This is mostly useful when removing a group without using the -c option, to avoid breaking any dependencies. To skip dependency checks, you add the -d option: -d, --nodeps Skips ...

grp:alt_shift_toggle was somehow added to my Xorg configuration. Removing the line from 10-keyboard.conf and restarting X removed the undesired behavior.

If you want to keep pacman from up/down grading some package(s), you put a line in /etc/pacman.conf: # Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup #IgnorePkg = #IgnoreGroup = I think you want to have a line like this in pacman.conf: IgnorePkg = linux linux-headers linux-api-headers As you point out, that just keeps ...

I'm not familiar with Cinnamon, but it should be possible to enable your Scroll Lock key. First, we need to see if you have a spare keyboard modifier slot. Run: xmodmap -pm That will print a list of your current modifier setup. Hopefully, one of those lines won't have any keys listed; generally that will be mod3. Assuming that's the case, you can enable ...

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio#Per-application_volumes_change_when_the_Master_volume_is_adjusted It's a pulseaudio default setting to link all the volumes together. Setting flat-volumes = no in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf should fix that!

I found a case when I tried to use gummiboot instead of grub. Gummiboot reported error, that it cant find kernel images. It looks like I mounted /boot and configured fstab after I installed base system with pacstrap -i. So kernel images, that were placed in a /boot directory were lost after mounting and thus system could not boot. I wonder what happened with ...

Anti-climactic conclusion: Wound up being the router was going bad. Started disconnecting other computers on the network for no reason. Replacing it solved everything.

The problem seems to be that pacman isn't checking the right key... Indeed, the libproxy package is not signed by Evangelos Foutras, but by Jan de Groot. Maybe E.F. was the previous maintainer, and your pacman hasn't acknowledged the change. You might want to download a fresh copy of the master package list first: $ pacman -Syyu -S: Synchronise ...

I'm going to go out on a limb and recommend that you turn off dhcpd.service. The actual dhcpd program acts as a DHCP server. That is, if it hears some machine solicit a DHCP lease, it will give one out, according to the configuration in /etc/dhcpd.conf. A "lease" includes an Internet Protocol address, and usually things like default router, NTP server. The ...

Did you export the esp variable for the grub-install command to use? If not, grub has no idea where the efi directory is located. # export esp=/boot/efi # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=$esp ..... Archlinux supports EFISTUB, removing the need for a bootloader. See EFISTUB for more info. If you would like to try an EFI only bootloader, ...
