Arch followup actions

Once you’ve installed Arch Linux, a couple of things are … nice.

Packages

# standard
ack
cups
dnsmasq
git
gnome-extra
NetworkManager
network-manager-applet
ripgrep
vim
zsh

# yaourt
firefox-beta-bin
ttf-ms-win10
visual-studio-code-bin

 

Configurations

For network manager, I prefer dnsmasq as the tool of choice, especially when using VPN connections:

[Main]
dns=dnsmasq

Enable services

# enable
systemctl enable NetworkManager
systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd

# start
systemctl start NetworkManager
systemctl start org.cups.cupsd

To-be-updated

… from time to time 😉
