BYOI ArcoLinuxB Xtended

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 https://github.com/arcolinuxb/arco-xtended
  2. change packages.x86_64 – we just change some of the applications arbitrarily
  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
./40-build-the-iso...

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

Add any of the 4.000 packages from Chaotics-aur
to the ISO

Run this script always in bash
