This is where I will be posting my custom Calamares Config. This can be used with various distros that use that installer, but mainly it was built with ArcoLinux in mind, specifically ArcoLinux Plasma. I do not know if it works with other D.E’s as I haven’t tested as of yet. I will soon, if you want you can test it and report back.
Ok, now for the “How-To Use” part of it all. Here I will show you how to use my own script, but if you are as much of a tinkerer as I am, I have a more in-depth tutorial on how you can build your own custom config over at ArcoLinux Forums.
Anyway, for now, here’s how to use my own Calamares Config, the way I made it. First, boot into your ISO of choice, in this case ArcoLinux B Plasma, do NOT run installer yet, as we want it to use our config, since it doesn’t have it yet, it will use default. Now head into /etc/ folder and open Terminal there. Since a calamares folder already exists there, we will first have to rename it to something else in order for us to replace it with our own. To do that run command below :
sudo mv calamares calamares.old
Then, once that’s done all we have to do is get my config in by cloning my git via command below :
Now, you can finally run installer, once you do, you will see my config instead of the ArcoLinux one.
I hope this proves to be helpful to you. You are free to use my config as a baseline, or, if you are building a Distro of your own, no need to ask me for permission, just use it, as long as you credit me it’s fine. THat’s the best part of Linux, FREEDOM… :D
Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM) is an open source virtualization technology built into Linux®. Specifically, KVM lets you turn Linux into a hypervisor that allows a host machine to run multiple, isolated virtual environments called guests or virtual machines (VMs). More-Info.
This is what I use for Virtualization, I find it does what I need it to, and best part is, it doesn’t break like VirtualBox does when I use a custom Kernel like I do most of the time.
Simple Automated Script
I have created an easy to run bash script that will do everything based on video by @EFLinux in one single swoop.
Click the link below, it will take you to script contents on my GitHub, copy code, create a new file wherever you want on your machine, calling it QEMU.sh paste code in, and save it. Once that’s done just give it executable permission (I hope you know how by now) run it and watch magic happen.
If you like video above and you are as much of a Linux G33k as I am, then check out some more awesome videos by my good friend and all-time great guy Ermanno Ferrari over @EFLinux as it's best source for ArchLinux Guides and more...
Now, you can finally run Virtual Machine Manager from the Applications Menu, enjoy ;)
This is my easy-to-use Samba configurator & installer script, that I will keep up-to-date as much as I can. It was created using a combination of ArchWiki and Erik Bubois' scripts merging all into one easy script that worked for me on every Arch-based Distro I used.
This script is dedicated to new-to-Linux users, click the link below, it will take you to script contents on my GitHub, copy code, create a new file wherever you want on your machine, calling it samba.sh paste code in. Once that’s done just give it executable permission (I hope you know how by now) run it and watch magic happen.
