sudo pacman -S xfce4
sudo pacman -S xfce4-goodies
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.
sudo pacman -S git
git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxd/arco-xfce
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.
