install desktop environment
Installing xfce4 requires only a few lines. Theming and tweaking your Arch Linux system will require more time. All the information about this desktop is here:

If you forget to activate the lightdm.service in the previous article you will never be able to boot into the graphical environment. I forgot that and I fix it here.

ArcoLinuxD github is the source
We will get our scripts from our github. Change the scripts any way you want. That is the idea. Add lines for extra software. Hashtag out software you do not want. Then run the scripts.

Then we have the scripts on our system. You decide what you run or not.

There is also a folder called ArchWay. This folder will contain all the scripts for people who do an Arch Linux installation. Currently we have the following scripts:

  • script to trust key from Erik Dubois
  • script to add the arcolinux repo to /etc/pacman.conf
  • script to add yaourt repo
  • script to hashtag out yaourt repo (after installation of yaourt)
After some theming and tweaking you can end up with this desktop environment.

We change the name of the whiskermenu from ArcoLinux to Arch Linux Xfce.

We also change the logo’s to ArchLinux everywhere.

We get the .bashrc from ArcoLinux to get pksyua and mirror for example.

sudo pacman -S reflector — You need to install reflector to use mirror.

We activate a conky and change the logo.

We change the theme, icons and cursor.

We also install the arcolinux-nemesis scripts that I normally use after a clean install of ArcoLinux. You decide if you will install those.
