… On my desktop.
Yesterday I revived apricity Linux OS in VirtualBox.
It’s not difficult at all, most customisations can be done via gnome tweak tool.
I’ll post relevant links when I’m at home again.
- Dash to Dock
- Frippery Move Clock
- Hide App Icon

- Remove Dropdown Arrows

Arctic-apricity: Actric Apricity
Numix circle icons from aur
Arc theme from the arch repos.
Ice-ssb from aur - searched quite a while for it.
Apricity os really was a very beautiful desktop, though a bit bloated, as I have read on an old Linux blog. I don’t know if they were in the apricity repo or really from aur.
Apricity cinnamon is even easier to revive, since there are less customizations than in the gnome edition.
BTW I tried to convert the old apricity os iso to vanilla arch. I can tell you, this doesn’t work. Don’t try it at home.
It’s easier to install arch gnome and then tweak it with tweak tool according to the live session of apricity. And install the preinstalled software afterwards of course.
The only thing I didn’t manage to install is the pamac tray icon. It simply doesn’t show up. I don’t know why, I had this problem in other des in arch as well. Sometimes it showed up after a reboot. This time also not.
And I need to research how to install Linux-lts on arch. I did manage already don’t know how it works anymore though. Installed the kernel mkinitcpio and grub update. - no lts kernel to choose at startup up…
