New here! So I have already installed arch linux with xfce DE but I was not quite satisfied with how (awful) it look. I have used bunsenlabs too and there is a way to bunsenify the Debian to bunsenlabs.
Is there a tutorial or guide for how to convert existing arch linux install into arch labs.? I have searched this forum too but didn’t find anything. It would be great if someone experienced can walk me through this.
There’s a bunch of free stuff in this tutorial if you want it…
ArchLabs is vanilla Arch so you just need their repos added to pacman - see this thread:
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
