Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Nice script there, but I would suggest sharing some more information about what exactly it installs.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

I plan to format my computer and only have postponed for laziness of reinstall everything again.
So accidentally I found this script.

Congratulations on your initiative and also thank you for it.

Could you provide the installation of XFCE in your script?

If you can, I'd be really grateful.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Excellent stuff - I always maintained a personalised "perfectminimal" type script when I was flitting around the debian based distros and have been meaning to have the same for Arch... they say great minds think alike big_smile

Nice script wink

I always like to include the option to install from an additional list of packages - either manually entered or from txt file as there is always something extra to add before there is time to update the script big_smile

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

edit: what would happen if I chose to "quit" for example because I didn't want any games installed? Would I be kicked out of the script or would it skip that section?

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

...out of the section, maybe instead of "quit" the word "none" would be more appropriate.
Gona chance dat...

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

I think I have a suggestion for improvement.
I tested the sed command found on line 215 and he made the change in two lines in "/etc/rc.conf".

In:

# -----------------------------------------------------------------------
# DAEMONS @alsa
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------
# ...

And in this:

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng crond dbus lightdm networkmanager bluetooth @alsa)

If my thinking is correct, I think he should find only the second line.
So, I changed the sed command.

From:

sed -i '/DAEMONS/s/\(.*\)\>/& @alsa/' /etc/rc.conf

To:

sed -i '/DAEMONS[=]/s/\(.*\)\>/& @alsa/' /etc/rc.conf

Maybe will be necessary review the other sed commands that have similar goals.

* A curiosity. Why did you use "@alsa" instead of just "alsa"?  As with "@samba", "@acpid"...

I hope this helps.

Copy the script to a USB beforehand, mount the USB, copy script to your hard drive, execute.

Or use sftp to connect from the new box  to another box which has the script and download it.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

I would like to recommend these changes

1. User input for location of /Sites
2. Emacs, Valgrind, Gdb, Intellij Idea added for DEVELOPMENT APPS
3, User specified .vimrc .inputrc .bashrc from github / gitorious

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Nice script.

print_title "CUPS - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cups"
pacman -S --noconfirm gutenprint foomatic-db foomatic-db-engine foomatic-db-nonfree foomatic-filters hplip splix cups-pdf
sed -i '/DAEMONS[=]/s/\(.*\)\>/& @cupsd/' /etc/rc.conf

I may be wrong, but it seems that you don't install cups, ghostscript and gsfonts first.

I got the same error when using the pastebin link, if you copy and paste from the OP it should work.
