arch linux

These are some notes for myself when setting up arch.

pacman

setup

before you can use the package manager pacman you need to run:

pacman-key --init

This sets up your abilit to set some keys and then use them to check the fingerprints on packages you’re going to install.

If you’re on a raspberry pi, you’ll need to add the keys for archlinuxarm in particular:

pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm

Thereafter you can go about installing whatever you need.

If you need to remove all the keys you have added to start over, you can:

rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg

before running the init again.

base packages

In order to get make, and a bunch of basic tooling:

pacman -S base-devel

AUR client

I always need to download some AUR packages. Usually we still need to download a client:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git
cd yay
makepkg -si

Pop!_OS

Sometimes my system76 laptop’s audio just stops working. This seems to fix it:

systemctl --user restart pulseaudio
rm -r ~/.config/pulse
pulseaudio -k
