    Question How to get the Arch Linux Logo on GNOME 3.8.2?

    I have this Arch system with GNOME that I made a couple months ago, the computer that it's on has 4 gigs of RAM and a triple-core AMD Phenom II. While I was browsing the internet bone day, I saw Arch systems that had the Arch Logo on the login screen in GNOME. And I was wondering how to do it. So if you could post the directions and commands needed that'll be great!




    As a sidenote, I have a couple extra questions:
    How can you install Unity on Arch Linux?
    Is it possible to somehow install the dpkg and apt-get on Arch and be able to access the Debian repositories?

    Re: How to get the Arch Linux Logo on GNOME 3.8.2?

    Why are you expecting an answer (and a very technical answer at that) from a Ubuntu forum? Surely, you should be asking this at the Arch Linux forum? For Unity see this:

    https://launchpad.net/unity

    It has a link to a download of Unity. I only have a little knowledge of Arch and it seems that you can do almost anything with that distribution because next to nothing is done for you. You can try to do what ever you like.

    Development focuses on simplicity, minimalism, and code elegance. Arch is installed as a minimal base system, configured by the user upon which their own ideal environment is assembled by installing only what is required or desired for their unique purposes. GUI configuration utilities are not officially provided, and most system configuration is performed from the shell and a text editor.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    As always with Arch, the answers are on their website.

    There are a couple of Arch GDM themes in the AUR...
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gdm-archfamily/
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/archdark-gdm-theme/

    How can you install Unity on Arch Linux?
    Look at the Unity page on the Arch wiki...
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unity

    Is it possible to somehow install the dpkg and apt-get on Arch and be able to access the Debian repositories?
    No.

    There was an extension or proposed extension to replace activities with a distributor logo in Gnome 3.0 , but it appears was not maintained or not created for general use. I don't find anything at the extension site. http://blog.fpmurphy.com/2011/04/rep...with-icon.html

    You mean like this....

    Although this doesn't help the OP who is after an Arch GDM theme.
