Automated script to install i3 and all its programs on Arch Linux
A collection of scripts for a fast an easy installation of all software, icons, themes, cursors, ... automatically.
This is my configuration for I3 improved tiling to be used on any archlinux distribution.
I will be using the following elements :
Sardi icons at AUR and Sourceforge
Surfn icons at AUR and Github
Aureola conky at Github
Plank themes at Github

In the installation folder are all the scripts for you to have a great working environment but not directly a desktop environment.
I do not work with a display manager like mdm, gdm,... Xorg and I3 provide all the display you will ever need.
I suggest you read up to better understand what a tiling window manager is.
It is really great once you have mastered the most important shortcuts.

Archlinux installation can be found in this article. It will be shown in VirtualBox in order to be able to make a tutorial. Remember to choose the proper graphical driver and not the virtual box driver when installing on a ssd or harddisk.

Since I sometimes forget to make the script executable, I include here what you can do to solve that.
A script can only run when it is marked as an executable.
Above code will reveal if a script has an "x". X meaning executable. Google "chmod" and "execute" and you will find more info.
For now if this happens, you should apply this code in the terminal and add the file name.
chmod +x typeyourfilename
Then you can execute it by typing
Or you can follow these steps
You can do whatever Y O U want.
