Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install the Gnome Desktop Environment on Arch Linux.
Because Gnome is available in the default Arch Linux repositories, all you have to do is:
$ sudo pacman -S gnome gnome-extra gnome-tweak-tool
Next, you have to choose which default display manager you want to use. GDM has a preetier interface, but LXDM is lighter.
To install LXDM and set it as the default one, do:
$ sudo pacman -S lxdm
$ sudo systemctl enable lxdm
To install GDM and set it as the default one, do:
$ sudo pacman -S gdm
$ sudo systemctl enable gdm
This is it. Enjoy.
