Without Arch, there's no way the manjaro devs would be able to maintain their little spin-off distro. You only hate Arch because you're an inept user (manjaro's target audience), don't make the mistake that all users share this flaw.

You should be having second thoughts, it is a joke

If you want Arch for babby ducks, there are three other sane solutions. https://github.com/helmuthdu/aui, Archbang and Antergos. Plus, these use the real repos, not some Ubuntu like bullshit.

Manjaro uses it's own repos if i recall correctly and it's run by two people so take that as you will

Antergos is superior:
Keeps default repositories while adding another one atop
Advanced installer
Looks gorgeous off the box - even comes with normally not free theme free of charge
Variety of DE on one .iso image
Far less bloat.
>>
>>43709925
yeah. antergos is the shit. pretty much arch. just great installer. perfect installer actually. and not bloated at all. maybe i should tos son my laptop. also uses Arch repos. Unlike manjaro?

>>
>>43708014
Good point. So why do archfags always on "HURR DURR WIKI" when this perfectly fine *shock* installer is available.

Hell, why isn't this included as a option on the arch iso...............elitist faggotry, that's why.
>>
if i wanted to install arch (which i don't because i'm not a faggot and masochist) i'd just use the AUI script.
>>
Arch is a part time job. You're thinking of gentoo. That, anon, is a full time job.

Arch is for elitists and ricers who DON'T have the time to install gentoo, and also for ricers who don't want to use mainstream software

>>43710088
I tried the AUI scripts to install Arch on a virtual machine with a 8GB - shit worked well.

But still happy with my Manjaro install on my main PC.
>>
>>43710150
Is it that automated that it will empty the whole drive without asking?
>>
>>43709960
Manjaro does allow you to use the AUR as well as it's open repos.

Dont let archfags tell you otherwise.
>>
>>43710184
wut?

I just used virtualbox to create a 8GB *virtual* hard drive (ie use 8GB of space on my main machine) to install Arch using AIS...

Another alternative to AIS:

I've used both. Get fucked, typical " i had no problems wuttur u talkin bout hudurr" linux luser.

All linux distros end up being a waste of time and demand maintenance sooner or later. Some more than others. Gentoo more than arch, arch actually less than debian (someone please tell apt to stop breaking and handle itself gracefully like yum), and yes, arch is better than fedora in that respect

But it's still trash

HOW THE FUCK DO I FIX THIS
Fresh install, tried openoing the web browser and I got an Input/output error, updated mt system and after a reboot, trying to open web browser sows firefox for a couple of seconds then it dissapears, the pacman bitched about some truncated files, managed to fix some (qtwebkit or somthing) reinstalling, but I dont know what these files (the ons with the x on their icon) belong to.
I really want to try this distro but fucking hell what a clusterfuck.

there are 2 types of arch user,

those who say it takes 3 days to install, and those who have found the installation script.

Anyone got a useful link bout whats recommended for a laptop user to do after installing and updating?

>>43712958
might want a fan control if you're experiencing overheating or poor battery

i'm missing something
why is this a bitchfit competition?
i'm dualbooting windows 7, mint petra and manjaro 1.something
why is this all comparing distros and not talking manjaro?

i don't like the way my ubuntu programs aren't all easy in manjaro but the aur is sweet and manjaro has a lot more (good) design in mind, in my opinion
not much to discuss there but whatever

you could try to download the fonts directly to /usr/share/fonts/TTF
what do you mean automate? like do a script to scan your downloads folder every second for ttf files and move them to the fonts folder? (that was sarcasm, that's a ridiculous idea)
you know what, fuck you, i'll do half of it, lucky i'm drunk
#/bin/bash

# fontUpdate.sh
#
# script to automate font installation
# will scan home downloads folder for ttf files and move them to usr share font folder
# only does ttf files
#
# elGrandeRetardo, 21 august 2014

# scan downloads for ttfs
ls ~/Downloads | grep -i '\.ttf'
###### SOMEBODY HAS TO LIKE STORE THE RESUKLTS OR SOMETHING, I DON'T KNOW, HERE'S THE FUCK UP ON THAT LINE JUST ABOVE THIS ONE

# move font file(s?) to that folder
#while [ NUMBEROFFONTS -ne 0 ]; do
mv $FONT /usr/share/fonts/TTF/$FONT
#let $FONT=$NEXT[i]
#done
##### PROBABLY A FUCKUP THERE, I DON'T FUCKING KNOW, I THOUGHT I COULD DO BASH, I DON'T EVEN KNOW ARRAYS


copy to a text file and rename the file fontUpdate.sh
then do:
chmod 755 fontUpdate.sh

that's like the jist of it, maybe someone could fill in the blanks
i tried and i thought it was funny
>>
>>43714488

>>
>>43714539
jesus christ, yeah, right click the background of your file explorer, open as root, cut font file, go to /usr/share/fonts/TTF and paste
nearly the same as windows
didn't even fucking occur to me
fucking cli and /g/ and /g/'s love of cli and all this confusing shit
