  • Connect to the internet
  • Install git
  • Clone this repo git clone --depth=1 ~/.dotfiles
  • Deploy the dotfiles cp -a ~/.dotfiles/. ~
  • Restore the packages sh ~/.scripts/openboxpack or sh ~/.scripts/fluxboxpack
  • Add user to sudoers using visudo
  • Change the systemclock to localtime timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 then set the time in BIOS (because I set my BIOS clock to localtime insted of UTC)
  • Change the default CLI Shell chsh $(whoami) -s /usr/bin/fish
  • Edit some system configuration, example in ~/.dotfiles/.system
  • Reboot
  • Fix some errors
  • Start working
