Adding more and more desktops or application to the ALIS project is super simple.

Follow the tutorial and you will quickly get the procedure to follow.

You can add as many desktops and as many applications as you want.

– Added the Dusk desktop environment but initially forgot to push the update to the internet and correct the configuration in ALIS to install Dusk instead of Openbox.
– The process involves editing the ALIS configuration file to ensure Dusk is the selected desktop environment, double-checking for any missing exclamation marks to avoid errors.
– After making the necessary changes, including setting Dusk as the desktop environment, the updated configurations are committed and pushed online with a comment for clarity.
– A virtual Arch Linux system is booted from an ISO built that morning, showcasing a pure Arch Linux logo and an unbiased system setup.
– The setup process includes fetching new code from GitHub, specifying to install Dusk, and ensuring the presence of a terminal in every environment to avoid resorting to TTY.
– Decides to add ST (Simple Terminal) and dmenu to the installation list, acknowledging the challenge of selecting the correct ST package from many available options.
– After rebooting, discovers that certain keybindings like Super + Enter and Ctrl + T do not launch the expected applications because ST needs to be built and dmenu installed.
– Proceeds to install dmenu using Pacman and builds ST from AUR using yay, ensuring the essential tools are available for a functional Dusk environment.
– Compares the pre and post-installation system information using Neofetch, noting differences in the display of CPU, GPU, and memory stats.
– Finalizes the installation process by ensuring Dusk, ST, and dmenu are correctly configured in the ALIS scripts, allowing for a basic but operational Dusk setup.
– The video concludes by emphasizing that Dusk, while ready to use, is best suited for users with experience in minimalist window managers like DWM, indicating it’s not for Linux beginners but rather for those who appreciate the depth and customization potential of Arch Linux.
