I have just signed up to the forum and I am about to install EndeavorOS. I have tried/used some Linux systems before but I still consider myself as a new-beginner. I am okey with terminal and following instructions.
I am quite excited about trying Endeavour but I have run into a minor issue already. It seems that I am not able to import the key for verifying the iso. In a terminal in another Linux system:
$ gpg --recv CB23504F
gpg: keyserver receive failed: General error
Looking forward to meeting you all and I would appreciate your help for resolving the verifying issue.
I was supposed to install the OS yesterday but I got sidetracked and couldn’t do it. Now it’s Monday and a new work week starting. I hope I will find time to dedicate to installing Endeavour within shortly.
I am going for online installer and Gnome desktop. Honestly Gnome is a new territory for me. I have been using Xfce mostly and Cinnamon a little. If you have suggestions/tips, I am more that happy to receive them.
Installing the OS should only take you 30 mins tops depending on your connection if you net install.If you do use Gnome and extensions (most people do) Remember to disable them (and maybe user themes) prior to an update. In particular gnome shell updates.
There should be no issue installing Gnome and Cinnamon at the same time. I have those (and several other DE’s) installed together in a VM version of EOS currently and there are no issues. You just select the one you want (typically in the upper right hand corner) when you login and away you go.
