3.opera and firefox dont start. Simply nothing happens when i click through firefox and opera with right mouse button

Blackarch need urgent help

Might not be an easy way to get started...

Anyway what is your desktop manager?
Did you try to launch browser from CLI?

To get access to your files you have to launch a file manager...

well, i didn't see any option to choose deskop manager through setup...


just installed again, and looks like i made some mistakes on my first attemp. firstly, now everything looks like working. including browsers. but still no internet connection. i tried with ethernet cable too, still i can't get internet connection.

during install i had to choose multiple files(yes i choose them randomly) i'm thinking one of them was wireless driver.. at the end of the install i got some conflict error. so i choose to remove conflicting files. next time i will not choose to remove any files. if problems persist on my next install i gotta install dialog then configure the wifi... yet i don't know what am i doing wrong

I suggest you read a bit and not install stuff randomly.

already checked. doesn't help anything about installation except beginning. That guide is very weak and small. it considers you as a high-end linux user

Not surprising as that distro is designed for high-end linux users.

Not being critical, just stating a fact. If you're new to Linux you need to pick a distro that is a bit more friendly. You don't learn to drive in a Formula One race car...

lucky you.
but i do not recommedn blackarch for two reasons:
1. it is for a very special usage scenario, not day-to-day use
2. it (archlinux) is absolutely not newbie friendly

if you want some nice black themes on your distro, i suggest you install something more newbie friendly and then we can help with that!

if you still think blackarch is the thing for you, do some research & troubleshooting and provide us with some real info - maybe we'll be able to help then.

Hey guys, been a while, cant you boot off your usb installation medium and "arch-chroot /dev/sdXX /mnt/xyx /bin/bash"...if using wifi..use wifi-menu to connect before you chroot, this will give you network connectivity...then chroot and install all missing dependencies...i dont know much about blackarch or which repositories it uses, but one could always change which repository is used (AUR) and update whatever file manager, window manager you like
