Work environment

The 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 of course there are still people who prefer doing everyday tasks in bare console.

Desktop environments



Window managers

  • dvtm — A dwm-style window manager in the console.

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 the Wikipedia article and other sources to get a hold on these things.
