With BYOI we give you the power
to change the iso any way you want.

 BYOI POSSIBILITIES

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/arcolinux/arcolinux-iso
  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
./30-build-the-iso... 

Run this script always in bash (standard)
NOT IN ZSH

We will use Xfce as the delivery system for your desktop.
The livecd will not have your chosen desktop.
You need to install it to see it. 

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
/usr/share/xsessions

You can always set your num lock key on with
"numlockx on"
in the terminal or in your .bashrc

Not ready to build an iso
but ready to download what we build

of software
