No, it just means verifying the wiki won't help you in the immediate. (Though the wiki could always use some help).

First, have you configured your system to boot directly to X11, or do you expect to login at a terminal, enter a tty, and do something like startx?

Second, I have a theory about this:

I tried it but I ended up with a pointer on a blue background.

Sounds like your window manager (gala) didn't start, or got stuck.

cerbere is probably running with the default gsetting:

$ gsettings get io.elementary.desktop.cerbere monitored-processes
['wingpanel', 'plank']

You might try appending gala to that list (old solution to a similar problem with older versions of pantheon-session):

$ gsettings set io.elementary.desktop.cerbere monitored-processes "['wingpanel', 'plank', 'gala']"

Then, with exec cerbere in your .xinitrc, you should get a whole desktop environment when you startx. (No need for gnome-session).


Gala is usually started by gnome-session, among other things via: /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/pantheon.session. Not sure why it wouldn't have worked when you ran gnome-session from the tty; but then I haven't tried running gnome-session from a tty.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Vipah, add this to your xinintrc

export XDG_SESSION_TYPE=x11
exec gnome-session --session=pantheon

Now everything should be fine. I had to add wingpanel and plank to the autoload.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Hi guys,

I particularly love Arch and I love Pantheon, and I've been trying to use it satisfactorily, and in pain learning how to install it. I tried to follow the Wiki but I can't get past the gala compilation (-git - as wiki). I left an Issue at Alucryd Repo.

So I found a really nice guy who published this tutorial and has kept it updated. Following it I installed using pantheon-stable. Everything goes well. Except the Pantheon-Greeter. But I use another greeter that satisfies me in LightDM.

I am in a clean install where I only installed vala and an AUR Helper (yay)

So let's go to what doesn't work and it's pissing me off:

- Night light - I got used to this Feature on Windows, Gnome, and Elementary OS itself. I would like to understand what is missing to work.
- Logout - too late to log out, and when I log back in I have to log in twice.
- Shortcut Keys - Mainly involving Screen Capture. I tried to recreate the combinations with the PRINT key but they don't work. META + T key for Terminal does not even exist in the list. In short no Custom combination works. And I use it a lot. Too bad to be without.
- Music - Application does not open. In the terminal it returns:

$ io.elementary.music
[1] 20872 segmentation fault (core dumped) io.elementary.music

- Sharing - This I can use with part tools like MiniDLNA. But it would be nice to use it the right way. What is missing for this to work?
- Appearance / Tweaker - I like the default Elementary theme, but let's be aware that there are also several compatible GTK's themes that allow us a bit of freedom in customizing Pantheon.  Another very bad thing is not being able to change the layout of the window buttons. It simply does not work.
The only thing that seems to work is the change of Cursors and Dark mode.

I would spend a lot on using this environment more satisfactorily.

If anyone can help fix some of these problems, I will be very happy.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

adsoncicilioti, Hi!

The location of the window buttons can be changed by creating the file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini:

gtk-decoration-layout=close:maximize

I was able to solve some problems (night mode, custom keyboard shortcuts, changing themes and icons) by simply launching the pantheon using xinitrc:

export XDG_SESSION_TYPE=x11
exec gnome-session --session=pantheon

startx

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Some bug reports I'd like to highlight, in case anyone else runs into the same problems:

port to libecal-2.0: wingpanel-indicator-datetime currently fails to build since Archlinux already ships evolution-data-server 3.34.1 in [extra] with libecal-2.0. This can be temporarily worked around by downgrading to evolution-data-server 3.32.2.

EDIT: fix committed; wingpanel-indicator-datetime-git now builds.

Tag a new GPG signed release: neither wingpanel, nor its dependency gala are available in [community] yet. This probably isn't the only reason why, but having an up-to-date official release of gala to build wingpanel against might help them get there some day. EDIT: Both gala and wingpanel's stable release packages fail to build against mutter 3.34, shipped in [extra]--however, their git masters have been updated. Also, mutter was the reason gala hadn't had an actual release since 2015, but that seems to have changed.

EDIT: Gala 3.2.0 released! Also, gala will start using a standard release method from this point forward.

libindicator ftbfs: G_ADD_PRIVATE: libindicator-ubuntu, a dependency of wingpanel-indicator-ayatana and wingpanel-indicator-namarupa fails to build because it's using an API deprecated from glib2. These plugins handle Ayatana indicators such as glippy.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Hi
I'm new to ArchLinux. I've have a system with SDDM and Plasma installed and am trying to install the Pantheon DE. I have followed the wiki and installed all the AUR -git packages but cannot get past the "Oh No, something's wrong" error that occurs each time I try to login. I have tried using SDDM, LightDM and the .xinitrc approach with the following content but get the same error each time:

export XDG_SESSION_TYPE=x11
exec gnome-session --session=pantheon
exec cerbere

What am I missing? If anyone can help it would be much appreciated...

What's in /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/pantheon.session?

This file specifies the components that gnome-session initiates and watches to determine if the session has crashed. One of those components may be failing to start.

I have had that problem in the past related to gnome-settings-daemon (dependency of pantheon-session-git).

You may need to install gnome-settings-daemon-elementary instead.

Hi quequotion
I tried your suggestion with some progress. I now get a desktop with wallpaper and a mouse cursor, but unfortunately no wingpanel bar or mouse-click functions so I can't interact with it in any way...

No wingpanel, and no plank either? If both failed to start, maybe cerbere isn't getting started (it should have installed an xdg autostart, but that strategy has failed before).

In the case of pantheon-3d and pantheon-lite, I had to append cerbere to their RequiredComponents; perhaps the same thing would work for you:

RequiredComponents=gala;gala-daemon;io.elementary.cerbere;

EDIT: Changes are coming that may invalidate this advice (and hopefully also the problem).
Cerbere's days appear to be numbered.

Still no joy unfortunately. I'm not sure where to go from here. Do you go for the AUR packages as per the wiki or do you use Alucryd's repos to get a working desktop, or a mix of the two? I'm also unsure if I should have anything else in my ~/.xinitrc file. Thanks for helping with this...

I would not recommend mixing the AUR and [extra-alucryd] repository packages, or using an AUR helper at all with this repository enabled.

The wiki needs work, and so do the packages (some of it upstream). Something I've been working on is reducing the AUR dependency chains for some of my packages.

Many of the "stable release" package set (those available in [community] and AUR packages without -git) are working together and seem to be up to their Juno releases. I am using a setup consisting of mostly these packages, but I am not sure it's something that should go on the wiki (yet, we need to get more pantheon packages into [community]  to make this really work).

Check the wiki on this. There are several things login managers like lightdm take care of that have to be specified in xinitrc, such as unlocking your gnome keyring.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Some fresh issues I'd like to highlight:

Cerbere is on its way out; this should be the end of "a stop job is running for ... " 90 second shutdown delays.

Switchboard is getting look and feel improvements.

There is a new (actually several months old), standalone notifications daemon! It's hardcoded to work with elementary's GTK theme only, but I'm going to see if there's something I can do about that. In the meantime, you might specify the theme in it's xdg autostart .desktop file (if you aren't using gtk-theme-elementary for your system theme):

Exec=env GTK_THEME=elementary io.elementary.notifications

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Hi all,
I am new to Pantheon, as I just read some good stories about it.

quequotion: Thank you for your great support. I have been searching around, and obviously, he answers were in our BBS. big_smile

Following the Arch Wiki, I have installed:

  1. pantheon-session-git

  2. mutter

  3. pantheon-default-settings-git

At that point, When I was trying to login, I was having the similar error:

dgsga wrote:

"Oh No, something's wrong" error

and you helped out with:

I think you should spend some time in the wiki, your knowledge would be very much appreciated, and would help people having a right first time experience of Pantheon.

Keep doing good work.

Thank you for the endorsement! I have been working on a rewrite, for if/when we have a full set of the basic pantheon packages available in [community] (we're getting there; since Gala had an official release Alucryd has been able to move forward with a number of packages; upstream have resolved many of the dependency issues that have kept a lot of packages in the AUR).

For now it seems like a reasonable thing to add the pantheon.session issue to the "Known Issues" section. I had hoped it would be resolved upstream, and I have not yet heard back why they decided to keep this. There are a number of related issues, most of them already closed, but it is worth noting this may be worked around in the next release of elementary OS by switching to systemd session management.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

i got it working but you need to edit the "Exec" part of every org.gnome.Settings.Daemon.XXXX-patheon.desktop and change it to /usr/lib/gsd-xxxx ....   by default is /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-xxxx ,after that edit the pantheon.session,  add io.elementary.cerbere and remove org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Clipboard and org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Mouse and finally edit the exec line in pantheon.desktop and add --builtin , something like this "Exec=gnome-session --builtin --session=pantheon"



edit: to use the new pantheon-notifications use dconf-editor and got to /org/pantheon/desktop/gala/behavior/use-new-notifications "true"

you need to edit the "Exec" part of every org.gnome.Settings.Daemon.XXXX-patheon.desktop and change it to /usr/lib/gsd-xxxx ....   by default is /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-xxxx

This will be fixed in an upcoming elementary OS release.

after that edit the pantheon.session,  add io.elementary.cerbere

Good news and bad news, but mostly good: cerbere is being deprecated. The next release of elementary OS is using gnome-session managment with --builtin in the interim, but upstream has in mind to transition to systemd session management.

and remove org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Clipboard and org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Mouse

Thank you for isolating those. I've known for a while the long list of gsd plugins in RequiredComponents is a problem but never took the time to figure out which components were failing. Note: this is subject to the whims of GNOME, and other plugins may fail in the future (which is why the Wiki says to remove them all).

edit: to use the new pantheon-notifications use dconf-editor and got to /org/pantheon/desktop/gala/behavior/use-new-notifications "true"

Note: the new notifications daemon is probably still in beta (works well though).

LOL, All things considered I think this shows good progress for Pantheon on Archlinux: four and a half installation issues, two being kind of the same issue, one covered by the wiki, and--most importantly--you were able to resolve them all!

Welcome to the fold!

I've just pushed an update that might help, but I don't think your problem was caused by the package itself. I was never able to reproduce it. I think the problem might be your AUR helper (yay). I strongly suggest you try building the required packages one at a time in a clean chroot. This is something that took time for me to get used to as well, but once I got the hang of it I had no further need for an AUR helper (well, I do use a little downloader though).

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Now everything was assembled without errors. The truth does not work as before.
When I run the video in the picture-in-picture, it does not have buttons for closing and resizing. Keyboard shortcuts do not work, as does tiling.

Progress. We're probably missing something to make those work. [tbd:check elementary github for related errors]; it wouldn't surprise me to find that some things were left behind by 3.36 based on recent experience; their toolchain and development cycle follow Ubuntu LTS releases. They're just getting rolling on "focal" [tbd:check elementary github focal gnome-settings-daemon fork] .

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Could someone please summarise whether Pantheon works well enough on Arch or not. What works, what doesn't, what's fixable, what is completely broken....?

Sorry I have a massive headache and I'm incredibly tired so I'm struggling to work this out myself. Really appreciate anyone summarising this for me! smile

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Thorned_Rose, Does not work:

Some keyboard shortcuts. You cannot take screenshots, adjust the volume and brightness of the screen, or assign your own keyboard shortcuts to a program. Some systemic combinations work well.

Autostart does not work correctly. It can run the application, or maybe not.

So it goes:)

UDP. Windows also does not stick to the edges of the screen if you move them with the mouse. Event alerts do not work.
