i once again tried the webdad install on a different VM with 4 gb mem allocation. still the installer [after zipping up to 95%] it just halts as the same shot i shared earlier.
alternatively if i choose architect install, its a breeze but i cant find JADE ! i wish to test drive jade on vm first
I have exactly the same issue.
Welcome to the forum.
Will wait for @codesardine s feedback. Maybe an issue with calamares facing problem in build and install?
Jade is not in the repos. If Yes we could have installed from architect
Run ( sudo -E calamares -d ) the installer needs a internet connection.
Let me know what the output is.
will do desktop is at home and my laptop has to adjust with max 2gb RAM i can allocate ! will update once i am done
EDIT: After almost an hour… the situation is the same. calamares seems to be frozen at 95% with bottom left saying “Install Packages”
but the top screen seems alive with rotational display as defined on the manjaro system. this is on my laptop running virt-manager on manjaro host, with 2g ram dedicated to vm
Calamares downloads the packages and upgrades the installation, could be that only 2gb or a slow internet speed makes the download process very slow.
cant say on 2gb ram but i have downloaded a 5gb iso in less than 6 minutes ! will test out with 4gb ra on vm !
further, i had always opted for “Erase disk” to use the total vdisk and auto partition. i was unable to choose the manual [the vdisk was not listed in manual mode]
yesterday night i downloaded fresh iso, tried again to install and i left the desktop as it is presuming the install will be over with sunrise !
here is the error i got !
There is a new build available.
this build just works… [only glitch, i deselected chromium and selected firefox during install, which didnt happen… nonetheless, i installed firefox via pacman ]
installed via gnome-boxes, host is manjaro-i3. i allocated 2gb ram to the vm…
- clicking search icon opens search window, it has to be re-clicked below on the icon to make it close. would be nice if it closes by either clicking else where OR Esc button.
unable to find the power button [how do i logout/reboot or poweroff]. i am testing as VM so i usetheVM menu to do this.
display resolution once set from monitor is not saved. i need to run xrandr after every boot and the wallpaper doesnt re-adjust to the new resolution
how do i add launchers [bottom left icons]
For logout right click icon on systray.
You should have lxranr in settings, if not install it from repos.
suggestion for ease of use, can you add a “power” icon that indicates and operates on-click ?
Is only visible if you have a battery VM does not have one.
aha ! got it ! the power-manager fails to load in vm ~? just curious, desktops too dont have battery ?!
It uses lxqt battery app.
