  1. Arch Linux as a base
  2. elements from the AUR (applications from github, debian (deb), redhat (rpm), compressed files, etc…)
  3. ArcoLinux created elements (themes, icons, conky’s, tweaks and configs)

Arcolinux has learning plan

PHASE 1

If you start learning linux then XFCE is a great way to start. If you know your way around the system then we can start learning Openbox. You will see it again as a challenge to know how this desktop environment works.  The next challenge then will be to learn a window tiling manager like i3, which is mostly keyboard driven. Each desktop environment increases in complexity.

PHASE 2

ArcoLinuxD is a stripped down ArcoLinux iso. No applications and no desktop environments.

After phase 1 you know what desktop you like and you install the building blocks yourself together with our Youtube tutorials.
We will install Xfce or Openbox or i3 together.

PHASE 3

ArcoLinuxD is a stripped down ArcoLinux. No applications (firefox, vlc, ...) No desktop environments.

There are other desktop environments you can explore. Let us install them together like Awesome, Gnome, ...

PHASE 4

ArcoLinux will give you the power the change the ArcoLinux iso and make it your own personal iso with your applications like ArcoLInuxB-Gnome, ArcoLinuxB-Plasma, ArcoLinuxB-Xfce, ArcoLinuxB-Awesome, ...

Insteal steam or obs-studio on the iso... anything really.

Remove and add applications at will. Then burn your personal iso.

PHASE 5

Let us install Arch Linux together.
Let us install it the "Arch way".
Choose the building blocks.
Choose the desktop environment.
Choose the applications.
...

PHASE 6

Making an iso like ArcoLinux is a time intensive and knowledge intensive project.

We will go into ALL the technicalities users see but also all the details going on at the back-end office like the repo's, github, workflow management,...

Get hooked on ArcoLinux.
