Hi. After a clean install where I choose XFCE as my desktop environment I was only able to log in using the LTS kernel. When I tried with the “normal” kernel I just got a black screen, no blinking cursor or nothing. I was able to get in to command line using CTRL+ALT+F3 but didn’t know what to do from there so I just decided to use the LTS kernel. I tried searching the forums but all posts seem to regard the Nvidia cards and I’m on integrated Intel graphics so I gave up until I stumbled uppon a post that seem to describe almost identical symptoms that I was having. The fix, or maybe we call it a workaround ,was simply to remove the lightdm packages and replace them with the gdm packages, now I could finally enjoy my new Antergos to the fullest! So, here we go: You can do this from the LTS kernel if you are able to log in there, like I did.
1- sudo pacman -Rcns lightdm
2- sudo pacman -S gdm
3- sudo systemctl -f enable gdm
Thats it folks, hope this will help someone.
