There’s a couple of themes that I’d like to install but I’ve found they’re not on the AUR so I figured now is maybe a good time for me to do a write up for one of the themes if it’s something people are interested in? It’s not as scary as it may seem if you don’t have a lot of command line experience, but it’ll definitely help you get more comfortable with it afterwards that’s for sure
Let me know, and depending on the response I’ll start writing something up in the next few days.
Hmm… given the intention behind EnOS being “as close to Arch as possible” I’d probably say that we should be promoting and using the Arch wiki whenever possible rather than re-creating resources. (yes, I know, FAQs…)
If something in the Arch wiki isn’t clear then that’s possibly something to raise on the wiki, or perhaps create a “simplified” alternative or extension (like Simple Wikipedia).
When someone asks “would you be interested in a tutorial” I automatically respond with “yes”. The subject and my familiarity with it do not matter, one can never have enough. It is up to the author to decide whether writing a tutorial is worth the time and effort. For a tutorial reader, the investment is fairly low.
The arch wiki is a great resource, but if you have the willingness and the expertise to write something better, more structured and easier to follow, that would be fantastic! I’ll certainly read it.
To me as a relatively late-comer to GNU/Linux in general and Arch(-based) operative systems in particular, this could be a nice additional resource even though the information is already present in different ArchWiki pages.
I admit that to me personally, the ArchWiki pages still are quite “intimidating” for the richness of information and the technical jargon for not saying the high probability of getting lost in the hyper-link labyrinth that ArchWiki sometime is.
So if this tutorial facilitate the process of learning how to write pkgbuilds, presented in clear and concise manner and as an step on the way for the new users to move on to ArchWiki, I think it is welcome addition.
