Free Software and ArcoLinux

If you want to check the license of a package, you can do so with Pacman. Also, check if there is a folder called /usr/share/arcolinux/licenses/ in your system; if so, it should contain license information for that package.

If we do not know the license and also for our own packages, we have set the license to be a GPL-3.


We would like to thank everyone who has enabled us to create ArcoLinux. These are in detail:

  • The Arch Linux developers,  community and all the AUR maintainers
  • Jody James to give us a working archiso for ArchLabs and consequently ArcoLinux
  • And all the people mentioned on the credits page.
