Work environment

Default installation of Arch does not contain any Desktop Environment and therefore forces users to choose one themselves. Most Arch boxes run some X11 Window Manager and/or Desktop Environment but precedents of doing everyday tasks in bare console are also present (proofs?).

Desktop environments



Window managers

  • dvtm — performs dwm-style window management in console
http://brain-dump.org/projects/dvtm/ || dvtm



Support applications

Login managers


Terminal multiplexers etc
  • screen — Full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal
https://gnu.org/s/screen/ || screen
  • Tmux — BSD-licensed terminal multiplexer
http://tmux.sourceforge.net/ || tmux
  • dtach — program that emulates the detach feature of screen
http://dtach.sourceforge.net/ || dtach

System Monitoring

  • adesklet-systemmonitor — modular stackable system monitors for adesklets
http://adesklets.sourceforge.net/desklets.html || adesklet-systemmonitorAUR
  • Conky — lightweight, scriptable system monitor
http://conky.sourceforge.net/ || conky
  • GKrellM — simple, flexible system monitor package for GTK2; many plug-ins are available on AUR
http://members.dslextreme.com/users/billw/gkrellm/gkrellm.html || gkrellm
  • Htop — simple, ncurses interactive process viewer
http://htop.sourceforge.net/ || htop
  • LXTask — lightweight task manager for LXDE
http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXTask || lxtask

Terminal emulators


Power users use terminal emulators quite often, so unsurprisingly lots of X11 terminal emulators exist. Most of them emulate Xterm that emulates VT102, which emulates typewriter, so you will have to read Wikipedia article and other sources to master these things. Some of listed emulators have "quake"-like sequences in names or refer to Quake terminals. If you have not played Quake (really?) or did not pay enough attention to it's terminals – those have no border and are hidden from the desktop until a key is pressed.

  • Xterm — It is doubtful that you would need more functionality than present in the Xterm, but be ready to tune it a bit to get nice look and working copy-paste
http://invisible-island.net/xterm/ || xterm
  • aterm — An xterm replacement with transparency support
http://aterm.sourceforge.net/ || aterm
http://konsole.kde.org/ || kdebase-konsole

  • mrxvt — tabbed X terminal emulator based on rxvt code
http://materm.sourceforge.net/index.html || mrxvtAUR

  • Terminal — Xfce default terminal with support for a colorized prompt and a tabbed interface
http://docs.xfce.org/apps/terminal/start || terminal
  • evilvte — name apparently is a reference to evilwm, although the two projects do not appear to be related
