KahelOS post-installation

Yesterday we saw how to install KahelOS and like the vast majority of distros it needs its configuration.

The first thing will be to update the system, KahelOS by default does not have sudo enabled so we enter root mode with


when we are already inside

pacman -Syu

If you tell us to update Pacman, we update it and update it again

pacman -Syu

Now we are going to clean repositories that we do not use and the cache with

pacman -Scc

Now we will install Yaourt to be able to use AUR, for this we activate the ArchLinuxFR repository in the following text file


We close and

pacman -S yaourt

Now we will install Flash, in my case I have used the free plugin

pacman -S flashplugin

For audio and videos we have two options, one is Vlc and the other is codecs

For Vlc

pacman -S vlc

For codecs

pacman -S flashplugin codecs gstreamer0.10-bad gstreamer0.10-ugly gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins

Put the system in Spanish

nano /etc/rc.conf

For the Spanish it has to stay like this


Now we install the Gnome packages in Spanish

pacman -S  language-pack-gnome-es language-pack-gnome-es-base

And we already have our KahelOS configured

    Very good tutorial, one question, how does gnome3 use what ram memory consumption it has?
    How much Ram is recommended to have.

      When I tried it, the Gnome 3 had not come out, the previous tutorial I did in February and this one I have done as a result of it, I am sorry I cannot help you, but when you asked me for a long time about LXDE I would not recommend it much. ArchBang suits you better

        I will take your recommendation into account, thank you.
