Guide to get a nice little Arch Linux setup in no-time

Arch Linux Setup

Cheat alert: Install the Gnome version of EndeavourOS first. Gives a perfect base without headache in record time.

  • Create a backup of /etc/pacman.conf and disable the repository of EndeavourOS by editing /etc/pacman.conf and deleting / commenting the [endeavour] entries.
  • Follow the steps for switching to homed
  • Install fish and oh-my-fish with my personal package repository
  • Install exa as ls replacement and install omf install ls2exa
  • Install bpytop and add omf install htop2bpytop
  • Install yay -S appimagelauncher to launch AppImages
