附注: 英文页面有更新,需要同步

新用户可能对 ArchWiki 中的操作和术语不是很了解,本文可以减少用户的误解,并减少 ArchWiki 中的重复内容。

一般用户还是 root 用户


# mkinitcpio -p linux


$ makepkg -s

井号(#)表示命令要以 root 权限执行,而美元符号($)表示命令用一般用户权限执行。

Note: sudo -i 可以进入 root 终端,在普通终端中使用sudo command也能让command以 root 权限执行,但是这个方式不支持 重定向替代。详情参阅sudo.

注意有时候 # 表示文件中的注释,通常包含大写字母的文字都是注释。大部分文章都会知名这一点。

# This alias makes ls colorize the listing
alias ls='ls --color=auto'


When prompted to append, add, create or edit, consider it an indication for using a text editor, such as nano, in order to make changes to configuration file(s):

# nano /etc/bash.bashrc

In programs, be it shells or otherwise, sourcing applies settings specified in a file. For Bash, sourcing can be done in a command prompt:

$ source /etc/bash.bashrc

and it can also happen in a file itself:

# This line includes settings from another file
source /etc/bash.bashrc

As a result, sourcing a file after alteration is an implied omission in the case of shell files.

However, not all articles will specify the nature of the changes to be made, nor which file to alter in the first place. This wiki builds on previous knowledge, such as common locations for files that are prone to sporadic editing.




如果软件包位于 官方软件仓库,安装指令是下面这样:

Install the foobar package.


# pacman -S foobar

pacman 包含了 Arch 软件包管理的详细内容。

Arch 用户仓库(AUR)


Install the foobarAUR package.

这意味这您需要打开foobarAUR 链接,下载 PKGBUILD,解压,验证内容,然后在文件目录执行:

$ makepkg -si

Arch User Repository (简体中文) 包含了 AUR 软件包的详细信息。

控制 systemd 单元

When an article invites to start, enable, stop or restart some systemd units (e.g. a service), it will not indicate the detailed instructions to do so, but instead you will read something like:

Start example.service.

This means that you have to run:

# systemctl start example.service

The Start link will lead you to the systemd article, which contains all the detailed explanations to deal with systemd units in Arch Linux proficiently.

System-wide versus user-specific configuration

It is important to remember that there are two different kinds of configurations on a GNU/Linux system. System-wide configuration affects all users. Since system-wide settings are generally located in the /etc directory, root privileges are required in order to alter them. For example, to apply a Bash setting that affects all users, /etc/bash.bashrc should be modified.

User-specific configuration affects only a single user. Dotfiles are used for user-specific configuration. For example, the file ~/.bashrc is the user-specific configuration file. The idea is that each user can define their own settings, such as aliases, functions and other interactive features like the prompt, without affecting other users' preferences.

Note: ~/ and $HOME are shortcuts for the user's home directory, usually /home/username/.

Common shell files

For ease of use, here is a selective listing of basic configuration files and their locations.


See also: Bash and man bash

Within Bash and other Bourne-compatible shells, such as Zsh, there is even further differentiation in the purposes of the configuration files. Some files only get sourced when Bash is starting as a login shell, whereas other files only do so when Bash is an interactive shell.

When Bash is run in a virtual console, for instance, it is started as a login shell. Bash shells started in a Xorg session, such as those employed by xterm, are interactive shells.

Common files:

  • /etc/bash.bashrc: System-wide settings; sourced only by a login shell
  • ~/.bashrc: Personal shell settings; sourced only by an interactive shell


See also: Zsh and man zsh

Common files:

  • /etc/zsh/zprofile: System-wide settings; sourced only by a login shell
  • ~/.zshrc: Personal shell settings; sourced only by an interactive shell

Pseudo-variables in code examples

Some code blocks may contain so-called pseudo-variables, which, as the name says, are not actual variables used in the code. Instead they are generic placeholders and have to be manually replaced with system-specific configuration items before the code may be run or parsed. In the articles that comply with Help:Style/Formatting and punctuation, pseudo-variables are formatted in italics.

For example:

  • Enable the dhcpcd@interface_name.service for the network interface identified from the output of the ip link command.

In this case interface_name is used as a pseudo-variable placeholder in a systemd template unit. All systemd template units, identifiable by the @ sign, require a system-specific configuration item as argument. See Systemd#Using units.

  • The command dd if=data_source of=/dev/sd"X" bs=sector_size count=sector_number seek=partitions_start_sector can be run as root to wipe a partition with the specific parameters.

In this case the pseudo-variables are used to describe the parameters that must be substituted for them. Details on how to gather them are elaborated on in the section Securely wipe disk#Calculate blocks to wipe manually, which features the command.

Reason: Mention other examples, ideally from other device categories (e.g. storage), with links to background articles. The examples are meant to avoid duplicating existing explanations in other articles. (Discuss in Help talk:Reading (简体中文)#)

In case of file examples, pasting pseudo-variables in real configuration files might break the programs that use them.


In most cases ellipses (...) are not part of the actual file content or code output, and instead represent omitted or optional text that is not relevant for the discussed subject.

For example HOOKS="... encrypt ... filesystems ..." or:

Section "InputClass"
    Option      "CircularScrolling"          "on"
    Option      "CircScrollTrigger"          "0"

Be aware though that, in a few instances, ellipses may be a meaningful part of the code syntax: attentive users will be able to easily recognize these cases by the context.
