ATT – Start with Xfce4 and add bspwm to your system

We install Bspwm on our ArcoLinuxS.

ArcoLinuxS does not have a browser so we install Firefox.

We show you also how easy the alias ‘personal’ is IF you have a config in our /personal folder. See articles on personal here.

Then it is time to install Bspwm with ATT and test it out.

All articles on Bspwm are on this website.

If you have an error in our ArcoLinux Tweak Tool or ATT you start the tool from the terminal.


Pacman will/might give a clue why the installation has failed.

There are so many reasons why it can go wrong. Analysis is then required.

Packages not present, conflicting packages, Arch Linux server down, ArcoLinux server down, key issues,...

Removing the desktop can be achieved by removing the most important packages.

It is not always possible for example with Plasma. Then you do a clean install.

You can use our cheatsheet to know what packages to remove

sudo pacman -R ...

sudo pacman -Rs ...
