Arc Themes


4 Arc Themes and matching Oblogout themes:

  • Punch (dark red)
  • Orchid (pink)
  • Niagara (green)

Rofi and Rofi themes

When developing ArchMergeD Awesome we have decided to add Rofi to that tiling windows manager. It can be an easy way to start your application. As a result Rofi has been added to the iso of ArchMerge.  We can use rofi only in i3 and openbox and not in xfce.  Next month we will create Arc Rofi themes that will match our Arc themes. The Rofi themes, you will receive now, are the standard ones from Rofi.

Rofi keyboard shortcuts have been added

  • CTRL + ALT + R = rofi-theme-selector
  • Super + F11 = full-sceen rofi application selector
  • Super + F12 = smaller screen rofi application selector


Sardi and Surfn update

Sardi and Surfn got a major update. More icons, spring clean in the svg code and Sardi Ghost Flexible is back in for Arch based distros. Read more about Sardi here.

Boost your system

While testing ArchMergeD desktops we were developing a script to make sure that all cores of our processor are involved in the building and compressing task for applications coming from the AUR.

Added script “” to speed up compiling your applications from AUR in ~/.config/openbox/scripts. You can find more info about this in this article.

ArchMergeD users will find it on the github.

To emphasize the importance of this tweak I have written a second article about it.


We made the icons in the whisker menu for category a little bit bigger.

  • Rofi has been added to Openbox and in the keyboard shortcut keys
  • Script to boost your system has been added to ~/.config/openbox/scripts

Rofi has been added to the i3 config with 3 keyboard shortcuts.
