Here is another example how to install ArcoLinuxD (shown in virtualbox). It is the same on harddisk or ssd.

Let us install ArcoLinuxD Spectrwm together step by step.

There are different ways to install a desktop.

Here we start with the ArcoLinuxD iso.

Option 1: Use calamares to install Spectrwm
Option 2: Use scripts to install Spectrwm

We will use option 1 and show option 2.

In option 2 you basically run all the scripts sequentially.

Later when you understand what every script does and what every application can do, you select which ones to keep and which ones not to install.

Make these scripts your own.

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


We get our scripts from the github

git clone

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

We have also used skel and upall. More info in the video.

After typing in the terminal

sudo reboot

We end up in the graphical environment – Lightdm with Spectrwm in this case.
