THE DEEPIN DESKTOP ENVIRONMENT
After successfully installing archlinux your going to want a desktop environment.
The easiest DE to get installed is deepin, DDE is probably the easiest one as it come with a complete desktop, sound, theming, network, and its own login manager.
Boot up your archlinux and login
First thing to do is check you have a Internet Connection
If you get ‘Temporary failure in name resolution’ you need to start the dhcpcd service.
sudo systemctl start dhcpcd
after a few seconds you should have a internet connection.
sudo pacman -S deepin deepin-extra
Like I said above, deepin comes with a complete Desktop, so all you need to do is enable its services.
sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager
sudo systemctl enable lightdm
as you can see we were able to login and network-manager is running in the taskbar
CREATE A SWAPFILE recomended
fallocate -l 4G /swapfile
chmod 600 /swapfile
echo '/swapfile none swap sw 0 0' | tee -a /etc/fstab
That’s it for installing deepin, like I say, its very easy.
Next step is to install your drivers and programs…
P.S I will be adding more desktop environments as I do them.
