  1. Did you remember to install network packages during install? Seems not. Boot into the install ISO and arch-chroot into the install and pacman -S dhcpcd NetworkManager then reboot into the install then systemctl enable --now dhcpcd NetworkManager
  2. If they really want to stop piracy, they will need to sell EVERYTHING outside of Japan, else, a pirate's gonna pirate. https://v1.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/114391-Valves-Gabe-Newell-Says-Piracy-Is-a-Service-Problem
  3. My wallet. My wallet's telling me no. But my body. MY BODY'S TELLING ME YES.
  4. Grab the open source parts of MacOS from apple: https://opensource.apple.com/ Build the OS: https://www.puredarwin.org/
  5. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DaVinci_Resolve
  6. FFmpeg https://ffmpeg.org/ Here're some GUIs for FFmpeg: https://handbrake.fr/ https://github.com/MattMcManis/Axiom
  7. The Linux kernel supports MANY devices, from i286 era hardware to today's hardware since the kernel includes drivers created by the community and by manufacturers themselves. Since these drivers are licensed in GPL2 (or compatible), they can legally be redistributed with the kernel. The reason a distro does not ship Nvidia drivers is because of their proprietary license, which is obviously incompatible with any GPL license since GPL prohibits redistribution with incompatible licenses. https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html
  8. This is the filesystem hierarchy standard of Linux, derived from UNIX. The idea is simple, each has its own specific purpose, meaning that files from different packages that serve the same/similar purpose will be grouped together. Ex. All essential system binaries/executable files goes to /bin/, all temporary files go to /tmp/, all user-owned files goes to /home/$USER/, etc. The root directory is not rigid, so you can add and remove directories in there, such as mounting an additional partition in /$partition_name. Also, partitions can be mounted in any directory as long as a directory can serve as a root directory exists. Ex: Mounting a partition in ~/$drive_name, you would use mkdir ~/$drive_name; sudo mount /dev/sdXY ~/$drive_name; sudo chown -R $USER ~/$drive_name That's a problem with the nautilus file manager, the GNOME team likes to remove useful features and users must rely on user-created extensions. Try the nemo file manager instead (from the cinnamon desktop) if you want a GTK file manager, else try KDE's dolphin. Again, Nautilus. Although, it sounds like you didn't search using the applications/activities panel in Gnome. Sometimes, distro maintainers make some weird design decisions. On most desktop environments, just open the font in the default font viewer and there is an install button. In KDE, it's the lower right corner of kFontView. Ah, yes. Novideo Been a while since I've used Gnome, but I do know you need gnome-tweaks to disable mouse acceleration. KDE, it's in System Settings -> Input Devices -> Mouse. Install proprietary Nvidia drivers, then you should have the Nvidia X Server Settings (Something like that), that's the Nvidia control panel for Linux. (ArchWiki:Nvidia) Seems like you've already figured that out. Right-click -> properties -> Executable, or chmod +x ./octane then run it: ./octane Right-click -> properties -> Executable, or chmod +x ./vray-benchmark-4.10.7 then run it ./vray-benchmark-4.10.7 sudo pacman -S opera I advise you setup your pacman mirrors correctly for optimal speed. sudo pacman -S steam or look for steam in your GUI package manager. It's in the Multilib repo so you might need to enable it. See 4.a. in previous section These files/directories are not owned by you, they are owned by root. You will need to use sudo. I advise you to not to change anything outside of your home directory unless it is necessary. See 1. In the previous section.
  9. Can you reboot and provide a picture right after boot?
  10. That's the EFI Shell, part of your motherboard's firmware (The UEFI). Looks like the laptop does not/cannot boot into a simple UEFI interface. Use this shell to boot into an installed bootloader (Grub or Windows), which will in turn allow you to boot into your OS (*/Linux or Windows), and check for any updated UEFI/BIOS for that laptop on Acer's website. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface#UEFI_shell https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface#UEFI_Shell
  11. Never tried that myself, but it seems to be possible: https://blog.getreu.net/projects/legacy-to-uefi-boot/ https://askubuntu.com/questions/913397/how-to-change-ubuntu-install-from-legacy-to-uefi
