We have installed our ArcoLinuxD with this tutorial and we have a github ready to backup our settings and scripts.

Let us install ArcoLinuxD MATE together step by step.

After logging in we type this command to get the best mirrors in our neighborhood.


Then we get a fresh sync and upgrade with this command

sudo pacman -Syyu

We have included the last command in nr. 100 so you can not forget to run it.

We get our scripts from the github

git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxd/arco-mate

Move inside the downloaded folder and run the scripts from the smallest number to largest numbers.

We talk about the naming conventions of the scripts in the tutorial and tell you what some of the scripts do.

After typing in the terminal

sudo reboot

we end up in the graphical environment – Lightdm with MATE in this case.

There is still a lot to do like theming and tweaking but first the personal folder.

Personal Settings
Then you can run the scripts inside the folder Personal.

We will even install compiz-manjaro at the end with the cube and the wobbly windows.

warning :  things my break when installing compiz

Just install Mate desktop
and wing it
