This is the first of a few blog posts which I’m going to use to document all that I tweak on my laptop and raspberry pi.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 which has an intel core i5 processor with a 5GB RAM. It’s about 5 years old, and hence obsolete. About a year back, after consistent Windows use (and abuse), my laptop crashed and I took that oppurtunity to test linux. First I ran Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, and I wasn’t that impressed with it either. After that I moved to Arch Linux, and haven’t looked back since.
Here are a few resources online which I used to set this up.
- The /g/ wiki of 4chan.
- This YouTube user‘s videos.
- Quite obviously, the god-like Arch Wiki and also the wiki for awesome window manager.
I’ve mostly tried to stick to the ricing configuration which has been mentioned in the /g/-wiki under the section “What does /g/ use?”
I’ve tweaked with it so much that I have forgetten how I’ve gotten to where I am now. So I’ve decided to document whatever I do from now so that I can keep a track of it.
