This is a step by step guide what I normally would do on my computer system.
Follow the steps and see which ones might interest you.
Step 1 : install arcolinux

Installation of ArcoLinux is also explained here.

Step 2 : update ARCH and arcolinux
You can update via pamac as in the video or via terminal with

Some of the ArcoLinux packages will be updated in /etc/skel. It is up to the user to check if you want those updates in your personal configuration folders.
Since this is a clean installation we copy over everything from /etc/skel to our home folder and restart plank.
Step 3 : update AUR

In pamac we can change the preferences to also update the packages from AUR.
Same thing can be achieved via terminal with

If packages of the AUR are out of date (i.e. not working anymore), let the maintainer know it via the website of the AUR and click on the button “Flagged out of date“. He/she we will get a mail that its pkgbuild is out of date. If the person is not sick, dead, on holiday, … he/she will update the pkgbuild within 3-5 days.


Step 4 : use all cores


I often forget it myself. Arch Linux is not tweaked to its full potential after any installation!!

Use all the cores, you have, to improve your installation time. More info in this article.

Run the script from here

Step 5 : icons conform with theme
Use this code in the terminal to fix some of the applications that still use hardcoded paths to their icons.

Step 6 : Arcolinux nemesis

I will git clone

It will provide me with all the fonts needed for the conkies and much more.

Discord is our channel of communication or our chatbox. Installed on the iso as of version 6.7 – May 2018.

Discord is there to have a quick and casual chat with the ArcoLinux team and other ArcoLinux users.

All the technical questions are supposed to go on the forum as usual.

If your script stops because of an error then hashtag out set -e and run again to run the rest of the elements in the script and fix that one error later.

Step 7 : Arcolinux nemesis PERSONAL
Now we go inside the Personal folder of the same github:

See what you can use from it and rewrite the codes any way you see fit.

Bookmarks can be interesting.
Firefox is sometimes not quite readable with dark themes depending on what websites you visit. Css fix for that.
