or
Download the JUly iso and update

ArcoLinuxB gives you the power to build your personal iso with

all the applications you love and none that you hate.

Build the iso on your computer. If you do not like to build then we have the July iso for you.

You can download the July version 19.07 and update the system.

Herbstluftwm

Herbsluftwm ArcoLinuxD and ArcoLinuxB

We have developed another tiling window manager for ArcoLinux.  You can as always decide to install it with either

  • ArcoLinuxD iso and scripts
  • ArcoLinuxB iso or build your own iso with the applications you like.
  • ArcoLinuxB Minimal and LTS versions have been put online as well

Carli

Customized

Arch

Linux

Iso

Coloring of Carli has a meaning

C = color from ArcoLinux

AR = color from Arch Linux

L = color from the feet of our little linux mascotte called Tux

I = color from an iso – silver/grey

With this project we want to build our own iso
from scratch on Arch Linux / ArcoLinux.

We start with archiso and will tackle any and all elements
in order to get a personalized iso/distro.

BUDGIE – KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

NEW PACKAGE FOR BUDGIE

Budgie and Gnome shared the same config package as they rely on each other.

We have split the config in 2 packages

  • arcolinux-config-gnome-git
  • arcolinux-config-budgie-git

To keep rolling on Budgie you must unstall arcolinux-config-gnome-git with

sudo pacman -R arcolinux-config-gnome-git

and install this one

sudo pacman -S arcolinux-config-budgie-git

Then do a skel to get the new data in your home directory and restart your engine or logout.

But there is a catch – the dconf file.

We explain it in the video.

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS

Deepin

Extra keyboard shortcuts to rotate the conkies – CTRL + ALT + Pagedown and Pageup. 

variety

With the new development of Herbstluftwm we have added a few lines so we can change our wallpaper with variety in Herbslufwm. 

polybar

Polybar config has been changed to include settings for Herbstluftwm.

oblogout

Created a new package for Herbstluftwm

insync

Insync is a paid application to sync your data with google drive.

This month I became a co-maintainer for this package.

LINUX-LTS

We updated to a newer version of the Long Term Support kernel for linux. 

000-script

The script to use all kernels has been rewritten (thanks to soehub from github).

Fun script

We opted for cmatrix-git rather than cmatrix. This git version does support transparency, which is much cooler.

1 new wallpaper

This wallpaper lights up my desktop and I missed it when it was gone. I hope it will give you some joy as well.
