Archmerge will install a fully fledged Arch and does not require much knowledge. Archmerged will also install in a very user friendly manner but only the minimal stuff.
So I decided to go for the minimal stuff because I don't need to learn how to install xfce4 and displaymanager.
I downloaded the iso and fired it up in a VB and it was very user friendly. I simply had to click and fill in the obvious.
There were absolutely no problems....unless you are norwegian
I could pick english or Icelandic but not the global Norwegian - go figure.
Since there still are a few people that are not Norwegians I must admit that they would have a smooth install - well I did have it too since I picked English.
If you picked the Archmerge iso then you would have a fully fledged desktop, but I picked Archmerged which is for the advanced users so I had to install the DE.
So I installed xfce4 and xorg and lightDM with greeter and changed the locale by uncommenting nb_NO.UTF-8 UTF-8 in /etc/locale.gen
Then I did a
Code: Select all
sudo localectl set-locale LANG=nb_NO.UTF-8
That should take care of it. So to make a long story short.
If you want to learn Arch the easy way you can check out Archmerge and Archmerged
They just might have found a way to make the learning curve smoother....
My Install? I have a blistering fast Xfce4 with whisker menu and lightDM...that works just fine.
