Didn’t see the need to start a new thread...I just threw arcolinux on an old computer. I was too lazy to install arch and wanted to try something other than manjaro for a change. Put the build with i3 Xfce on an old iMac.
Overall I like a lot of the package choices they made for their i3 desktop. Doesn’t look nearly as snazzy as manjaro and his keyboard conventions are weird for me (apparently the French use the shift key more than most people). Little things that I always install with arch were already installed - glances, gtop for example. Nano was configured to show line numbers. All good to me.
I found it to be a bit slower than expected for reasons unknown. Graphics drivers are correct but UI is laggy. It also set up grub incorrectly, pointing to a file that wasn’t there (easily fixed). Doesn’t include update-grub by default.
I might play with the custom build script and see what happens. I don’t see how AUR packages could be included? Would the installer build them? Could be fun.
