Hello everyone, welcome to this new entry in my blog, at this moment I will be talking about an Arco Linux
Since many of you ask me about Arch linux, (I have decided to collect a series of installations of desktop environments in Arch linux) for those who have few resources or good resources depending on the computer you have or who like to experiment with different distributions.
For those who do not know ARCO LINUX I will give you a small Introduction of what ARCO LINUX is.
for more information, you can search anything: https://arcolinux.com/
First I want you to know that arch linux is a general-purpose GNU / Linux distribution, developed independently for x86-64, that strives to provide the latest stable versions of most software, following a rolling-release model. The default installation leaves a minimal base system, which the user will configure later adding what he needs.
(The great thing about Arch is that you can install what you really need, which makes it versatile, in arch you can install the desktop, packages, applications, etc…) It does not mean that in Ubuntu you cannot install a different desktop than GNOME, of course, in both distributions you can do it, but here I am emphasizing ARCH AND ARCO LINUX)
All of you constantly ask me about arch, well I have decided to install Arco Linux which seems to me the best option when migrating to ARCH, first because Arco Linux handles the installation with squid, which makes it too easy to install in any machine independent of the technical specifications of your pc.
In this case I am going to leave you a series of screenshots of the installation that I did. In case you were wondering, install linux arc with LXQT (LXQT is one of the lightest linux desktops).
When this ends automatically your PC will restart and you will enter your desktop with LXQT. Something like this should appear to you.
On the other hand, as for choosing another Linux distribution, within my needs that I imagine coincide a lot with yours:
- A system that does not require updates, that is, Rolling-Release model (at that time I had a network card error on my pc, it happens that when I installed Lubuntu 19.04 the kernel was updated, which caused certain modules to be They will update what caused a problem with my network card that ended up damaging)
- That it has a large number of applications in its repos and minimize the use of external resources. (This is something that personally stresses me a little, in the sense that sometimes you do not usually find a large number of applications and more when you develop but it was not a problem it seemed the same as using Ubuntu or other distros)
- Quick installation, that looks good and doesn’t consume as many resources unnecessarily. (with squid this is great, it’s fast)
- In case the system breaks, have the ease of being able to solve the problem without compromising data or in the worst case the system. (something that happens to all of us)
- That prevents me from having problems with dependencies between different applications. (something that constantly happens to all of us who use Linux)
I hope it is to your liking, Arco Linux personally surprised me a lot, I was using it for 4 days, I was not disappointed, the only thing difficult for me was learning PACMAN, HAHAHA because I am always using sudo apt because of the Ubuntu, but it is not that you should backtrack, not at all it is great you should try it, it is almost like learning the same thing with sudo apt, but in this case it is sudo pacman -S “application name”
I leave you the direct link of the installation with linux arch and the LQXT desktop. Remember that it is an iso file, you must use a memory on the device you choose to install the boot on your pc: https://bike.seedhost.eu/arcolinux/iso/arcolinuxb-lxqt-v20.4.11.iso
