Wink I'm really new to arch so where do I go to set the settings for my new arch Sustem?

Hi I want to learn what to do to set up a complete Arch distro, I run manjaro for now. Would like to set up everything myself, just settings and programs. Not coding my own distro?

Sorry if I'm not to clear on what is needed

God bless

Once you have the base system installed, read this page to get the rest of your system working:
Pay special attention to the first two sections.
The other sections provide links to post-installation tutorials like setting up a graphical user interface, sound or a touchpad.

For a list of applications that may be of interest, read this:
