A Bunch of Questions

1.  Does Arch come with a firewall, or do I have to install one?  Any recommendations?

2.  I installed VLC Player.  It works fine, except every time I open it, I get an error message that says:

Cannot Set Locale to ".

It's kinda annoying.  How do I make it stop?

3.  I can't figure out how to get K3B to install.  I use GNOME.  I typed pacman -S k3b and it installed a bunch of things, and gave me a message saying that I had to install kdebase.  I did, and it won't open.  Not even through terminal.

Edit - fixed this one.

4.  How do I add my user to more groups?  I know optical is burning, what is printing?

Re: A Bunch of Questions

1. I don't think you need a firewall but in the Arch Wiki there's a page about firewalls

4. And again the wiki: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pla … -root_user

If you have further questions, it is a good starting point to look into the Arch Wiki

Re: A Bunch of Questions

A good firewall (and very easy to configure too) is Firestarter (pacman -Sy firestarter).

Just whichever one you need.  If you want US English, then en_US, Germany German de_DE, etc...   You're the best judge for that.

Re: A Bunch of Questions

if u don't know ur language code, what's ur language ?
btw the comamnd is

locale-gen

not locale.gen

edit:
language code asin: english:en ; german(deautsch):de ;
so it'd be ...

English UK > en_gb - as the uk is great britain and northern ireland.
English USA > en_US,
German Germany > de_DE
German Belgium > de_BE

i think it's recommended to uncomment (remove '#' from in from of the lines) both the iso and utf locales.
hope that helped
