ARCHLabs package configs?

#1

First off, I’d like to say that Arch Labs is by far my favorite pre-configured Linux distro, with Bunsenlabs coming in at a close second.

However, about a month ago I decided to try and install vanilla Arch. It went pretty well and I am loving it also.

Secondly, I’m sorry if this isn’t the correct place to post this, brand new to the forum.

I was mainly wondering if anyone knew if there was a way to deploy the packages used in ArchLabs installation with it’s dotfiles/configs, while staying on regular Arch.

For example, I want to try out say, bspwm, but I don’t want to go through all the hassle of creating my own entire config (yet). Is there a way that I could install the bspwm package that appears in the archlabs_repo github repository?

Some might ask, “why not just go back to ArchLabs,” but in the month I’ve been on regular Arch, I’ve put a lot of work into my configuration, especially i3 and Neovim.

Any help is appreciated, and if it’s not possibly then no big deal I guess – but it would be quite amazing because I do love the work the guys at ArchLabs are doing with their default configurations :stuck_out_tongue:

You can add our repos to your pacman.conf and get them that way

[archlabs_unstable]
Server = https://bitbucket.org/archlabslinux/$repo/raw/master/$arch

[archlabs_repo]
Server = https://bitbucket.org/archlabslinux/$repo/raw/master/$arch
Server = https://sourceforge.net/projects/archlabs-repo/files/$repo/$arch
Server = https://github.com/ARCHLabs/$repo/raw/master/$arch

There’s also fairly up to date PKGBUILD files for them if you prefer installing them locally
