General ideas

If you have a problem with sddm.conf error, please enter the following commands:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S sddm --force
sudo pacman -Su

Stuck on login, no sddm:

Please login with your normal username and password, then reinstall sddm from the command line:
sudo pacman -S sddm

Blank Screen during Boot:

When booting from USB and the Desktop does not come up in Live Mode (stuck at Command Line), select “nonfree” from the options to boot with a different gfx driver.


 

A quick introduction to pacman:

To install a package or list of packages (including dependencies):
# sudo pacman -S package_name (package_name2 …)

To remove a package, leaving all of its dependencies installed:
# sudo pacman -R package_name

To remove a package and its dependencies which are not required by any other installed package:
# sudo pacman -Rs package_name

To update database and then upgrade all packages:
# sudo pacman -Syu

samba-mounter
(Add Network Drive)

samba-mounter helps you mount NAS drives with a GUI and make them available transparently for KDE and non-KDE programs.It also tries to reconnect them during next startup, so they are available without re-configuration.Added folders are also displayed under a special “Network” folder in your “home” directory, so you can access (read and write) them directly with your applications like amarok, libreoffice, etc.
