31 How to configure, set icons correct and autostart plank

On our system we have already plank and the ArcoLinux themes installed. If you do not have them, you install them with

sudo pacman -S plank arcolinux-plank-themes-git

We start plank and we show you how to configure it:

Left CTRL on your keyboard and right mouse-click will give you the settings you need. (first picture)

We need to set the icons correct on Plank. (second picture)

We make sure plank launches at boot and teach you how to do that.

The folder to remember is ~/.config/autostart.

Plasma Challenge

You can follow our tutorials based on either of two ISO’s.

1. ArcoLinuxB Plasma (recommended)

We record the plasma video’s on an SSD installed from theĀ ArcoLinuxB Plasma ISO.
You can either create your very own ArcoLinuxB Plasma ISO following this tutorial or download it from Sourceforge. (ArcoLinuxB-plasma-18.11.2.ISO of 4.3 GB – games included)

2. ArcoLinuxD Plasma

You can also use the ArcoLinuxD ISO and then install Plasma with the help of the github scripts. This will not be an exact copy of the ISO.

Learn about the Plasma desktop and enjoy it.
