OPTION 1 : Installing the desktop with Calamares

SDDM is the default login or displaymanager. Select more sddm themes if you want.

You can also select lightdm or gdm in the installer.

Lightdm will be activated if you select it.
Gdm will not be activated due to incompatibility between Wayland and VirtualBox.
You can activate gdm with this command:

sudo systemctl enable gdm -f

Select during installation what desktop you want to install.

After installation you reboot.

Update your Arch Linux mirrors with the command


Then update your computer with the command


Reboot if needed. For example if there is a new kernel.

OPTION 2 : Installing the desktop with scripts

Install ArcoLinuxD without selecting the display manager or the desktop in Calamares.

Choose Base installation.

After rebooting and logging in we type this command to get the best mirrors in our neighborhood.


Then we get a fresh sync and upgrade with this command


We get our scripts from the github

git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxd/arco-worm

Move inside the downloaded folder with cd and run the scripts from the smallest number to the largest number.

Only run script number 100 and reboot. Some desktops will give you an Arch Linux feel. Read more here and see examples.

Decide if you want to run the other scripts. These scripts are meant to be changed by the user.

The scripts 500 & 600 will give you the ArcoLinux look and feel.
