We give you the power and knowledge to change the ArcoLinux iso.

We have heard the following remarks online that you can now easily solve yourself.

  • there are too much/too little browsers
  • I do not need libreoffice – I want openoffice
  • I want steam or obs-studio on the iso
  • I want more applications
  • I want less applications
  • The iso does not support xxx hardware.

BYOI procedure

  1. git clone
  2. change packages.x86_64 – we just change arbitrary some of the applications
  3. run script 30 if you build the iso for the first time
  4. run script 40 if you build the iso for the second time (more conservative for your bandwidth usage)

Never run the building script with sudo just

Use the /personal folder to add configs, backgrounds, packages, settings, ... to the ISO
Use the alias personal to copy/paste them over

Run this script always in bash (standard)

If you want to autologin
change /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
autologin-session=your desktop

or use our ArcoLinux Tweak Tool

You can find the name of your desktop in

You can always set your num lock key on with

in the terminal or in your .bashrc
