Arch Linux GUI (also known as ALG) is a Linux distribution for Arch Linux. It provides a GUI installer, so the user can have a beginner-friendly installation for said distribution. It currently comes in 5 desktop environments and 2 window managers by default, unlike Fedora which had more than 5 and Manjaro which officialy comes with 3 desktop environments (others is available for community editions).

Like Arch Linux, it is a rolling release distribution, with no fixed release and simply provides updates to packages that are installed.

Branches[edit | edit source]

There are 3 braches of Arch Linux GUI. A list of these can be seen in this list.

Standard[edit | edit source]

Standard is the default branch, which provides the standard Linux kernel for Arch Linux and basic software preinstalled from chosen GUI.

Studio[edit | edit source]

The Studio branch provides the Linux-Xanmod-RT as the default kernel, Pipewire being the default audio driver, and provides various multimedia software.

Zen[edit | edit source]

The Zen edition is notably aimed towards gamers. It provides the linux-zen kernel, zsh as its default shell, the chaotic-aur repository being added, and a different filesystem called BTRFS. However, the EXT4 filesystem can still be used.
