Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install the Gnome Desktop Environment on Arch Linux.

How To Install Gnome 3 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.
