Please note, that Arch Linux is a rolling release and in perpetual update, with no set releases like other major linux distributions, so things can change very quickly. The only real up to date informaton regarding Arch Linux is within the Arch Wiki at
Please read thoroughly as most, if not all, issues are explained well and throughly here.

This is the 4th and final (hopefully) video in my Arch Linux Installation Series, int his one I primarily deal with configuring openbox, which i admittedly am still pretty new to myself so i don't have this down to a science, but I get through it, a basic setup with some panels, network applet, sound applet, wallpaper, screensaver, menus,some keybindings, adding a shutdown adn restart tot he menu, and lastly where to get support for arch, the arch wiki, arch forums, IRC channel, and a plug for the linuxdistrocommunity. I may later decide to do another video as kind of an epilogue of sorts to this that is proprietary video driver installation, it's kind of a pain to so and I also don't know how well this will work on a virtualbox virtual machine, so that one may be scratched. I haven't decided yet. But with this I conclude my Arch Installation Series, when I figure out what I wish to tackle next I will create more videos.

Again, I am not an arch expert but I have done many installs over the last few months and this is merely my way of doing this as of late, if you know of a better method than what I do in this video feel free to comment below, Don't be a jerkoff but I welcome constructive criticism.

And lastly for assistance from people more knowledgeable than myself visit www.linuxdistrocommunity.com or come into the IRC charoom at #linuxdistrocommunity on irc.freenode.net, plenty of friendly, helpful people, regardless of what linux distro you're using, or even if you're a windows user considering trying out linux, come hang with us.
