CINNAMON

Installing cinnamon requires only one line. Theming and tweaking your Arch Linux system will require more time. All the information about this desktop is here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/cinnamon

sudo pacman -S cinnamon

You can install also the languages for cinnamon if your are not native English.

sudo pacman -S cinnamon-translations

Let us go over every settings of Arch Linux Cinnamon and see what we still need to fix.

We have a vanilla Arch installation and we keep installing elements like :

  • terminal
  • theme
  • icon theme
  • text editor
  • conky and Aureola conky
  • ArcoLinux wallpapers
  • plank and ArcoLinux themes

This time we do NOT run the scripts from https://github.com/arcolinuxd/arco-cinnamon.

You will have to figure things out yourself with the wiki from Arch Linux, Youtube and ofcourse ArcoLinux and ArcoLinuxD.
