Leftwm has now 16 themes – mesh – newest addition


Leftwm has 4 new themes – matrix – pi – parker – starwars

Dusk – fork from Dwm

It is interesting to see people create their own view on Dwm.

Dusk is all about choices and the freedom to apply them.

All credits to the developer :

All we have done is Arcofy the config. Mainly we changed the keybindings so we can navigate Dusk like any of our other 25 desktops.

You can install it with the ATT and remove it with the ADT.

We will not create an ArcoLinuxB Dusk as the only difference between Dwm and Dusk is one package called arcolinux-dusk-git.
We did create a tutorial to show the workflow behind creating ArcoLinuxB isos.


Install it with the tool provided by Leftwm.

Sometimes you just want to shutdown hblock for a few minutes.

ArcoLinux Tweak Tool Mirrors

We have added Aarnet to the list of mirrors. Userbase located in or near Australia can benefit from the speed.
