ARCHLabs package configs?

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:

Hi @shemot, welcome to AL.

All our configs are available at BitBucket, you’re welcome to grab what you want


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

Server =$repo/raw/master/$arch

Server =$repo/raw/master/$arch
Server =$repo/$arch
Server =$repo/raw/master/$arch

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


Thank you both!
