ArcoLinux Beta 22.12

V22.12.02

KEYSERVERS

We have updated the content of

/etc/pacman.d/gnupg/gpg.conf

in order to receive the keys if we want to build a package from the AUR.

New xanmod kernels

Since the xanmod edge kernel is gone we have added others to our selection

  • linux-xanmod
  • linux-xanmod-lts
  • linux-xanmod-rt
  • linux-xanmod-tt
  • linux-xanmod-anbox

Btrfsmaintenance

For the users that prefer BTRFS as formatting we have added btrfsmaintenance to the Calamares list.

New desktop Enlightenment – desktop

We have created an iso for Enlightenment.

https://www.enlightenment.org/

The holdup now we realize was Wayland.

So with some extra steps and some knowledge you can install Enlightenment with Calamares.

How to create the ArcoLinuxB Hypr iso

Once all the githubs, repos, package builds and scripts are in place making a new iso is not that hard.

See what steps we take to create an ArcoLinuxB Hypr.

We need a package for the configuration and a package for the application:

  • arcolinux-hypr-git
  • hypr-dev-git

Copy/pasting is fun but …

See me making a mistake and ending up in a ‘virgin’ i3.

What welcome app to use – for distrobuilders – what is out there

Of course you can start building your very own, unique, beautiful welcome app but what if that is out of your league?

Use code that you can find online and ask permission to reuse it.

We have made a playlist of several tools we found online and looked at the code, language, functionality, etc …

Learn how to explore a TWM you have never seen before

Exploring new things is fun.

Crashing and failing all the time is no fun.

In this video we go over some of the best practices. We have a look at hypr.

The tools I need are:

  • a terminal
  • a file manager
  • meld to compare
