This page aims to provide a guide for the standardization of style in the articles of this wiki.
- This guide is a draft, it has not been officialized yet, and its rules cannot be considered in a definitive status.
- You are warmly invited to discuss your additions or modifications in the talk page, before submitting them; you can also start discussions in the forum, but you should add a link to the thread in the talk page anyway.
Commands: regular user or root
When writing CLI commands, always make distinction whether each should be issued as a regular user, or as root:
- use $ for regular user commands:
$ makepkg -s
- use # for root commands:
# pacman -S kernel26
Prefer using this method instead of writing $ sudo command unless it is really necessary. Do not assume the user uses sudo or other privilege escalation utilities (e.g. gksu, kdesu).
# sudo command is always wrong.
