Arcolinuxd.com covers
Learning phases 2, 3 and 5

LEARNING PATH

You have downloaded the ArcoLinux, ArcoLinuxD or ArcoLinuxB iso and have installed it either on a virtual machine or on an SSD. We advise you to start in the menu “Start here” and follow the articles and videos. Then you can use the menus, categories, tags and the search to look for specific items. Or just venture your way in our distro.

You can take a look at all the articles per desktop.

On ArcoLinux.com you will find also more info about Xfce, Openbox and i3. The rest of the desktops are ONLY documented here.

Any desktop articles means they apply to all the desktops.

If you want to build your own ArcoLinuxB iso, then you go to arcolinuxb.com.

Installing Arch Linux or Phase 5 in our learning path can be found on this website.

You can learn how to build a distro from scratch via the Carli project. ArcoLinuxIso.com will provide you with that knowledge.
