New desktop Hyprland
Calamares and wayland
We only started with Wayland (Hyprland and Sway) since the beginning of December.
Let us see how wayland applications and configurations may influence other desktops.
Mixing desktops is always a challenge but mixing Xorg and Wayland even more so.
ArcoLinuxL and ArcoLinuxD will have an extra netmodule for Wayland desktops.
You will only see this netmodule
IF you have selected line 1 or 2 in your bios/uefi bootup sequence.
There can be NO nvidia driver present.
You can not install Hyprland or Sway on a virtual machine.
Wayland – new aliases
New aliases have been created for Wayland
Calamares – G4music was added
G4music has been added to the repos and to the Calamares installation list.

How to create two new ArcoLinuxB i3wm isos
Since we created two new themes for I3wm you can also build these two isos.
Just a matter of knowledge.
We host a new icon theme for Plasma.
It is on the arcolinux-nemesis repo and can be installed with:
sudo pacman -S surfn-plasma-flow-git
New server in Sweden
ArcoLinux is grateful that our packages/isos are being hosted at:
Arch Linux decided to add the qemu service to the Archiso package. ArcoLinux followed this approach.
Since then an ‘error‘ shows up if you are not on Qemu. As a result our users are worried and confused.
All packages for qemu are still on the iso. If you are working with qemu, activate the service manually.
sudo systemctl enable --now qemu-guest-agent
