[INFO] ArchMerge Packages - rolling release

Post by erikdubois » Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:34 am

Since ArchMerge 6.2.1 we are a rolling release.

We created packages to easily update your system.

We can not and must not write to your home folder. That is common sense.

What we can do, is update /etc/skel folder.

Then it is up to you to copy/paste the update to your own home folder IF you want to.

Examples are i3wm configuration. But if you do not use i3. No need to copy it.
Examples are openbox configuration. But if you do not use openbox. No need to copy it.

Another example is the conky package.

The conky update does not work.
./get-latest-archmerge-conky-collection-from-github-to-local-drive-v1.sh

Since we are now rolling - this will be the procedure for everything that is in your personal home folder.

sudo pacman -S archmerge-conky-collection-git

then it is in the /etc/skel folder - press ctrl + H and copy/paste to your home folder and replace the old one


Want to know all archmerge packages

Go inside terminal and type

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S archmerge-   
and press twice on TAB.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
