NEWS 170627 about Calamares Installer
I’ve finally managed to make Calamares (The universal installer framework) work without problems/issues. Yesterdays version of ArchEX has therefore been replaced today. Now you can use Calamares to install ArchEX in any language. The boot loader Grub2 (which can be installed during the installation of ArchEX) will also work without problems. Watch a slideshow showing the installation process.

WHAT IS ArchEX?
ArchEX 64 bit is a new (170626) Linux live DVD based on Arch Linux. Arch motto is KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). ArchEX uses kernel 4.11.6-3-ARCH and the LXQt Desktop environment. LXQt is a lightweight Qt desktop environment. It will not get in your way. It will not hang or slow down your system. It is focused on being a classic desktop with a modern look and feel.

INSTALLED SOFTWARE
Among many other programs, Firefox 54.0 (for Netflix), Gimp, GCC, Wicd and GParted – study this package LIST.

WHO should run Arch Linux?
My answer: The system fits the “advanced” Linux user/enthusiast, who would be willing to run an occasional command from time to time.

BENEFITS of ArchEX/Arch Linux
“Cutting Edge”-software and speed. You will for example always run the latest kernel if you upgrade ArchEX/Arch (for example) every month.

    Softpedia 170627: "Arne Exton is pleased to announce the availability of a new update for his Arch Linux-based ArchEX GNU/Linux distribution, build 170626, which comes with the latest LXQt desktop environment and other open source technologies."

    Powered by Linux kernel 4.11.6-3, the same version that's also available upstream in the stable repositories of the popular Arch Linux operating system, ArchEX Build 170626 is now using the latest Mozilla Firefox 54.0 web browser, Yaourt package manager, and Calamares installer, all built on top of the LXQt 0.11.1 desktop environment.

    "I’ve finally managed to make Calamares (the universal installer framework) work without problems/issues," says Arne Exton. "Yesterday's version of ArchEX has therefore been replaced today. Now you can use Calamares to install ArchEX in any language. The boot loader Grub2 (which can be installed during the installation of ArchEX) will also work without problems."
