The Plasma Challenge originated in beginning of November 2018 and was never touched without filming it every step of the way.
We just keep on updating
ArcoLinux and Arch Linux is a rolling release linux distribution.
There are no half-yearly releases. Instead there are year round updates – some small – some large. The updates just keep coming in.
So there is no need to do a clean install. You can keep on rolling.
And this is already the second ssd where I proof to you that it is possible to just keep updating.
This ssd is now 1 year and 1 month old. You can check this with the command last.
First we update (Arch Linux and ArcoLinux). Later we do a upall for the AUR packages.
We have not checked if we still have the fastest servers for ArchLinux servers with mirrors.
sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyrings
if you get issues with keyrings. There was no need this time to do so during our update.
We will explain you the alias skel and its function and where the files and folders are : /etc/skel
We explain the alias bupskel.
We install also the last package of arcolinux-lightdm-gtk-greeter-plasma to get rid of a message.
We accept all name changes coming in during the update.
In dolphin we add the open the terminal here at the top.
When you do 2 bupskels, you can compare with meld to see what changed over time.
We install our new packages
sudo pacman -S surfn-arc-breeze-git arcolinux-arc-kde
and we remove a dependency that is no longer needed.
sudo pacman -R python2-xapp
Skel = alias to copy/paste settings over
We only have 2 mirrors – We need to get the new .bashrc in.
The bashrc.latest contains all our new settings and aliases.
sudo pacman -S arcolinux-root-git
We are going to load the .bashrc with
It will make sure the .bashrc-latest will applied everywhere.
Then we take a look at ~/.bin/stay-rolling
and see if we need to change anything.
We install also
sudo pacman -S arcolinux-config-plasma-git
We show you some of the conkies that we have created for plasma.
