# Install all you need after the vanilla base install in Arch Linux, Debian, Fedora and Void Linux

## Linux Systems

The best thing about Linux is that you can install just a bases system or a full desktop enviroment. In here we like a minimal install of our linux and we use Tiling Window Manager.

If you are new to this kind of installations and you don’t know where to start, here is a list of tutorials that can help you to start with:

In my opinion Debian and Void Linux are the most easiest to install.

Post Installation

Most of the power users out there, after their base installation they use a shell script to install all the packages they need for their custom build.

This is the script than i use in my post installation. I use it for this Linux Distros:

  1. Arch Linux
  2. Debian
  3. Fedora
  4. Void Linux

In this script dwm is my default tiling window manager to install. (you can comment out or delete the lines that install dwm if you don’t want to install it)

Suckless software that will be install

  1. dwm
  2. dmenu
  3. slstatus
  4. st

## Process

This script will install all you need to start with a new Linux system. Some distros need more software than other ones.

Here is a brief list of the software that will install:

  1. xorg
    1. xorg-server
    2. xorg-fonts
    3. lightdm
    4. lightdm-mini-greeter (Arch Linux, Debian, Void Linux)
    5. slick-greeter (Fedora)
  2. System Utilities
    1. Libreries and all that stuffs
  3. CLI Programs
    1. rxvt-unicode (i like this terminal)
    2. st (i like this one as well)
    3. alacritty
    4. ranger
    5. vim
    6. neofetch
  4. GUI Programs
    1. lxappearance
    2. nitrogen
    3. xfce4-appfinder
    4. xfce4-porwer-manager
    5. pcmanfm (that is what i like)
    6. gimp
    7. calibre
    8. brave (Arch Linux and Debian)
    9. qutebrowser

Before you use the script, take a well look of it and change what ever you want to match your necesities for your own build.

## Comments

There are similitudes in between distros but they are not alike.

When i install my systemen i like to install dwm for the default window manager, dwm integrates very well with any linux distribution. Then i install another window manager if i want to use another one in my system like xmonad, qtile, spectrwm, i3.
