desktop environment with plank xcompmgr nemesis artix based : a possible configuration

Added packages.

Found the way to keep plank settings. It has to be started from /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart. First post modified accordingly.

grub2 menu entry

@blaze: So you have installed grub2 grub-2.02-x86_64-2dj.txz (pkgs.org) without any other distribution necessary. This is great. To see GRUB during boot you need to press the right-hand SHIFT key during boot (not tested on blaze install) http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/07/key-to-show-grub-menu-ubunt...

I do not want to upset you but, the only peculiarity seems that it is gentoo based. Personally, with the nice wallpaper you have provided with your xfce4 desktop, I am sure I would r...

There is some work to be done to replace the right icons and sometimes the right command line to get some applications going on. Settings will not save from one session to another unde...
