    Which WM are you gonna be using. Personally I recommend i3gaps. It has a bit of a learning curve but it's absolutely worth it.

    @RuntimeError It's pretty sad that I recognized pacman from the shape of the text in the thumbnail. It's probably because of the hours I've spent, usually incredibly drunk, trying to upgrade packages.

    Welcome to the fantastic OS ☺️☺️
    If ur on UEFI firmware, might as well just use systemd... it installs in pretty much a single command 😊😊

    @Bitwise well to b honest I haven’t used grub much myself... what I do know is that u won’t have to fiddle with configs that much and grub doesn’t come preinstalled in arch... systemd does.
    And creating custom scripts with systemd is pretty easy too ( props to arch wiki for that ) ☺️

    People do hate systemd for its tendency to b “more than boot manager”... but I did like it since it worked for me 😊😊

    @Dacexi yeah i went for i3 :)

    @Bitwise i3 is supposed beautiful once you configure it. Also, I found gnome to be WAYYY to slow. When I click a program it should open immediately not in 1.5s

    @ImNotAlfred ive already done so trying to connect to a network lmao! netctl and dhcpcd were being a pain in the ass

    @RuntimeError I'm pretty sure if you just install NetworkManager it's a lot easier

    What is all the arch hype about
  • 1
    @kyleperik it didnt have to do with me not knowing how to do it lol, it was more of the dhcp not being on, etc etc

    do you have an nvidia graphics card, and do you like steam?
  • 0
    @ParkCity what does that have to do with Arch?
  • 0
    @Dacexi Arch and the proprietary nvidia drivers don't play well together at all, and steam relied on those proprietary drivers, not the open source ones
  • 0
    @ParkCity I use the prop. drivers and I game perfectly using steam tho

    @ParkCity Arch and Nvidia have always been good, for at least the past ten years I've been using the distro
