Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

Hi there!
I have a problem after install Arch Linux and DE.
Arch creates in my home directory folder named $HOME and there is .config directory.
System only get config from ~/\$HOME/.config, but doesn't from ~/.config.

 ~  ls -la ~/\$HOME/                                   
total 12
drwx------  3 user users 4096 Feb 19 11:18 .
drwx------ 28 user users 4096 Feb 19 11:29 ..
drwx------ 10 user users 4096 Feb 19 11:22 .config

Anyone can help me?
Thanks.

Re: Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

"Arch" doesn't do anything, what DE did you install and how are you starting it and what are the contents of this .config folder?

Don't use slim, it's broken, note the warning in: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SLiM

Re: Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

Okay, so there's nothing weird in the skel, so it's only your current user's problem.

$ env
$ tail -n +1 ~/.bashrc ~/.bash_profile

Unrelated and irrelevant, but the export isn't reached.

If the issue remains w/o sllim, it's likely either sdkman-init.sh or snap.
Or oh-my-zsh

XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/home/kript/.config

System only get config from ~/\$HOME/.config

What exactly is "system"?

Re: Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

Might that wrong value be set in the systemd environment.d?
Or possibly with pam_env (in ~/.pam_environment or /etc/environment)?

Re: Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

"DE and something similar else" … Aha. Something™. Everything clear.

Do you get this if you only boot the multi-user.target, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sy … _boot_into (but basically don't startx)
And remove omz. Is your bashrc actually relevant or do you use zsh?

It seems like i fixed it by change default target to boot into from a default.target to multi-user.target, i will test it again and reply here later. Thanks so much

Re: Arch creates in a home directory folder named $HOME every time.

That's not a fix - it's either created by something lxde autostarts or it was indeed OMZ…
btw. why were you posting your bashrc when you're actually using zsh as login shell?

The question is whether after switching to bash the folder is still created when running LXDE?

Post your zshrc and maybe double-check that the problem wasn't indeed OMZ.

How did you remove OMZ? That's basically an OMZ-only zshrc?
Remove the omz references (essentially have an empty zshrc, because that's all that's left) and see whther the issue remains.

fwwi, you do NOT need OMZ for a powerline promt. At all.
