My first real impression of arch:

30 chrome tabs open
3 games installing
1 game server running

and still below half of the maximum capacity.

+Rez Azhar Prabowo this is why I recommend people actually go through with a proper arch install. You wouldn't need to ask this question, and you wouldn't get stuck here.

Do yourself a favour, do a manual install, understand how it works.

Hello folks! As I'm relative new to Arch Linux and tiling window managers (currently using bspwm) It's been very confusing to me about what panel to use (lemonbar? tint2? dzen2?...) so I haven't been able to decide which one I should install and configure (as bspwm doesn't come with a panel out-of-the-box as i3wm).

Any help is really appreciated. Thank you!

When I installed Arch I wanted to install Pantheon desktop, but how I didn't know if I was going to install it right, I installed xfce4 with lightdm, after spending a two weeks trying to tweak it to make it looks like pantheon, I decided to leave it along and install Gnome desktop ( gnome gnome-extra). Now I don't know if is recomended to uninstall xfce4 or just leave it there.

I don't use it any more, should remove xfce4?

Would anyone like to take a stab at a PKGBUILD for i3-hud-menu? I'm curious if it would work in Gnome as it does in XFCE for application menu searching.

I agree. Menus as a way of navigation should die. It is slow and cumbersome. Personally I am using a tiling wm and do not have much need for a hud. What the hud gives in functionality I get by having the terminal accessible at all time. ;)

If you're bothered by the configuration of openvpn, you could consider getting a small vps that supports ssh access and just browse using a socks proxy.

I love Arch, but I cannot help agreeing with most of what's said here.
It's a bit TL;DR, but methinks it's worth the effort.

Hey all, what's your preferred CD rip app and optionally why? Gui or cli is fine.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Optical_disc_drive#Ripping
From Wikipedia: In computing, an optical disc drive (ODD) is a disk drive that uses laser light or electromagnetic waves within or near the visible light spectrum as part of the process of reading or writing data to or from optical discs. Some drives can only read from discs, but recent drives ...

Sorry about that. I misread the title. I don't think it's possible to rip audio CDs with Handbreak. But VLC can be used for that. AFAIK Handbreak uses the VLC libs for it's ripping so perhaps it might be possible?

Well worth a read. In fact, reading it more than once might be a good idea.
Disclaimers, et al. These opinions are not at all related to Arch Linux, though maintaining Arch packages has certainly colored my opinions. I've been a volunteer maintainer for years now, because I feel it helps people. I have a bias towards the value that maintainers and maintaining packages ...

hi... i want to ask something about pacman's source code. there is a function called _(). i think it returns a string, and is about localization, but i couldn't find where it's defined, or if it's from a header. can anyone please help me?

You will encounter with that underscore in many programs. It generally refers to gettext–a localization utility. https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/
