ArcoLinux is an Arch Linux based distro that uses

  1. Arch Linux as a base – red color
  2. elements from the AUR (applications from github, debian (deb), redhat (rpm), compressed files, etc…) – blue color
  3. ArcoLinux created elements (themes, icons, conkys, tweaks and configs) – blue color
Bottom-line:
90% of our packages
ARE coming from Arch Linux

ArcoLinux is a rolling release so
no need to reinstall but
every month we release
an iso with the newest
changes and updates

ArcoLinux has a
learning plan
for you.
Need more info about the different phases

Phase 1 can be found on Arcolinux.com

When you use the arcolinux iso this is going to be your place to go to. You will learn about Xfce, Openbox and i3. You will find additional tutorials about these three on arcolinuxd.com.
It will also contain any linux related article. Desktop independent information.

This is phase 1 in our learning path.

 

Phase 2 can be found on ArcoLinuxD.Com

Check the menu called Phase 2.

When you use the ArcoLinuxD iso this is going to be your place to go to. Here you also have tutorials about

  • Xfce
  • Openbox
  • i3

You use the ArcoLinuxD iso and run scripts to have one of the three desktops. Then follow the articles and videos with the most commonly asked questions.

This is phase 2 in our learning path.

 

Phase 3 can be found on ArcoLinuxD.Com

Check the menu called Phase 3.

You use the ArcoLinuxD iso and choose from a wide range of desktops and run scripts to have a working system. Then follow all the articles and videos with the most commonly asked questions.

  • Awesome
  • Bspwm
  • Budgie
  • Cinnamon
  • Gnome
  • Mate

This is phase 3 in our learning path.

 

Phase 4 can be found on ArcoLinuxB.Com

Let us build your own personalized ArcoLinuxB iso.

We use the ArcoLinux iso as a template to build our own iso.

Choose just one desktop, choose your applications and build a personal iso.

You run 1 script and you will get 1 iso with a full desktop.

ArcoLinuxB-Xfce
ArcoLinuxB-Openbox
ArcoLinuxB-i3
ArcoLinuxB-Awesome

We have also a MINIMAL project. Build and iso of around 1.4 Gigabyte.

ArcoLinuxB-Xfce-Minimal
ArcoLinuxB-Openbox-Minimal
ArcoLinuxB-i3-Minimal

B stands for Build stands for Build your own iso stands for BYOI.

This is phase 4 in our learning path.

 

Phase 5 can be found on ArcoLinuxD.Com

Check the menu called Phase 5.

Since ArcoLinux is based on Arch Linux it is only natural to want to learn how to install Arch Linux the ‘Arch Way‘ from scratch. There is a tutorial for BIOS and UEFI based systems. Step by step guide what to do.

You will be guided step by step and end up in a desktop of your choice.

This is phase 5 in our learning path.

 

Phase 6 can be found on ArcoLinuxIso.Com

We will build an Arch Linux based distribution from A to Z.

You will be guided step by step. The end-result will be your own iso/distro.

This project is called Carli.

This is phase 6 in our learning path.
