Making ARCHLabs 4.0 a rolling release

PostPosted by erikdubois » Thu Jun 01, 2017 5:27 pm

If you have archlabs 4.1 or Yoda this is not required.

In the roadmap it has been decided to make Archlabs as much as possible a rolling release so you do not have to reinstall from scratch. Next versions (Archlabs >4.0.0) will be able to do this and betatesters are trying out the newest beta-releases right now. You can make your Archlabs 4.0.0 already somewhat more ‘rolling’ if you want to give it a try. You can follow this link for the tutorial.
10+ Archlabs AUR packages have been added to make Archlabs a rolling release. We might create more.

Just check by typing in the terminal

Code: Select all
packer archlabs




archlabs-arc-themes-git
archlabs-common-git
archlabs-docs-git
archlabs-oblogout-themes-git
archlabs-openbox-themes-git
archlabs-pipemenus-git
archlabs-plank-themes-git
archlabs-slimlock-themes-git
archlabs-tint2-themes-git
archlabs-wallpapers-git

Follow this tutorial to have the latest versions of ARCHLabs from the github. We will delete elements and replaces them with AUR packages.
We will also hashtag out the archlabs-repo in the pacman.conf file.
