install network manager then run nmtui, it works with both WPA(2) and WEP.
remember to install a daemon to automount usbs and such
when you are an arch user, you have a duty to shitpost on this board at least twice a day

install gentoo, just do it

Install a proper desktop environment and don't turn into an autistic faggot

dont listen to the idiots that just spout the "it wastes all your time" meme. It's not even as complex to setup than gentoo and no, its not going to break itself on you unless you are doing some really retarded shit, but like most distros, if you fuck around with shit you don't know, you can fuck shit up. There are legitimate complaints about the distro but it being "too complex" or "taking too much time" are not valid ones, just excuses for stupidity and shitposters using overused memes.

This.Once you have the base installed, it's really no more difficult to deal with than anything else.The old Arch was a rickety piece of shit though.

Once it's installed it's one of the most comfortable distros I've used. The AUR has almost everything you could need and is pretty much always up to date.

>>52420878
What's up with this reddit tier thread?
>>
>>52421448
This. It's easier and faster.
Also once your done give a read-through to the gentoo and LFS guides to get a good grasp of the whole partition - chroot - install cocept. Arch simplifies everything with bash scripts. The first time I installed arch I just mindlessly obeyed the wiki and didn't really get it. Its useful knowledge for repairing damaged systems or testing stuff in a chrooted jailed environment.

No way it's faster. My system with openbox starts literally instantly.
>>
>>52422217
I meant easier and faster to get done with an install of a usuable complete system.

Yeah, don't do it. Just install Gentoo and emerge Pacman. Best of both worlds senpai.

What are the good things you get from Gentoo?
>>
>>52422390
You can shitpost better and spout memes like 'install gentoo' and 'proprietary software'
>>
>>52422345
you can emerge pacman?? sheeeiitt
>>
Im using it for a year. Best thing.
Very good wiki. Everything i need i find there. You may want to use manjaro, based on arch.
I use it with i3, tiling window manager
>>
>>52420878
Install manjaro
>>
>>52422823
Gentoo is a non free operating system
>>
My method:
use makeiso
