History and developmentedit

Initially the project began as Cinnarch56 and the desktop environment used by this distribution was Cinnamon, a fork of GNOME Shell developed by the Linux Mint team In April 2013 the team switched the default desktop environment from Cinnamon to GNOME version 36, given the difficulty of keeping Cinnamon which did not make it a priority to stay compatible with the latest GTK librariescitation needed in the repositories of a rolling release like Arch Linux The distribution was accordingly renamed to Antergos and released under the new name in May 2013789

Other changes in the default configuration of the system included: Nautilus replacing the Nemo file Manager, GDM replacing MDM Mint Display Manager as desktop manager and Empathy replacing Pidgin as the messaging client

Since version 20140526, Antergos partnered with the Numix project to bring Numix-Square icons and an exclusive Numix-Frost theme to the operating system10

On 7 March 2015, an Antergos Minimal ISO was made available, providing only necessary components for the installer to function11


Antergos features the graphical installer Cnchi The installer boots into a GNOME desktop, but during installation gives the options to choose between GNOME 3, Cinnamon, Mate, KDE Plasma 5, Xfce and Openbox desktop environments1213 A network connection is required to begin the installation and to automatically update the Cnchi installer prior to installation

Package managementedit

Antergos is a rolling release and utilizes Arch Linux official repositories and the AUR, along with its own software repositories14 It's a Pacman-based distribution with a minimal text-based installer similar to that of Arch Linux

Package management is via pacman and a GUI front-end, Pamac15

Antergos doesn't come with a default office suite However, since the earliest Cinnarch release, it has had the "LibreOffice Installer for Arch Linux" which makes it easy to select and download the required LibreOffice components16


The first ISO by the name of Cinnarch was launched on 7 May 2012 accompanied by a message in the Arch Linux forum notifying users of the release17 The first version under the Antergos name was released on 12 May 20131819
