theDesk

Beta 1 is available now!

But first,

Here are some things you might need to know.

Let's do it!

Which distribution are you installing theDesk on?

Arch Linux

Fedora

You can install both next to each other!

Get theDesk for Arch Linux

Binary Packages

Binary packages can be retrieved from the theSuite repository. This also has the advantage of easier updating with pacman.

  1. Add the theSuite repository to your system.
    Edit /etc/pacman.conf and add the following at the bottom:
    [theapps]
    SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
    Server = https://packages.vicr123.com/arch/$arch/
  2. Force an update of the system and all repositores pacman -Syyu
  3. Install theDesk (and associated utilities) pacman -S thedesk contemporary-icons ttf-contemporary tsscreenlock

If you'd like to use the AUR instead, install the thedesk package from the Arch User Repository.
Use of an AUR helper is recommended as there are a lot of dependencies to install.
