We have installed our ArchMergeD with this tutorial and we have a github ready to backup our settings and scripts.

Let us install ArchMergeD Openbox together step by step.

After 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 have included the last command in nr. 100 so you can not forget to run it.

We get our scripts from the github

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

We talk about the naming conventions of the scripts in the tutorial and tell you what some of the scripts do.

Zsh is skipped in this tutorial. You can run it if you want to try out zsh instead of bash.

After typing in the terminal

we end up in the graphical environment – Lightdm with Openbox in this case.

Variety is started and you will have to set its preferences.

Then you can run the scripts inside the folder Personal. The technical side of the scripts are explained in this tutorial.

We add ‘neofetch’ in the bashrc file so we see the neofetch each time we run termite.

We install the bookmarks in our thunar filemanager.

We run a script to fix the inputboxes in firefox when you have a dark theme.

Do not install 900-install-lts-kernel on virtualbox. It will break your system.

You can install the lts kernel on ssd or harddisk without problems. This is really just a choice whether you want to use the long-term-support kernel (lts) or not. Depending on your hardware you may consider using that one.
