You will not need every packages, in fact you only need some of them. So first, get them.
Then, install SLIM and enable it. After that you should just have to modify your .xinit file, with this:


if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
[ -x "$f" ] && . “$f”
unset f

gsettings-data-convert &
xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update &
/usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &
/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gnome-settings-daemon &
/usr/lib/gnome-user-share/gnome-user-share &
eval $(gnome-keyring-daemon –start –components=pkcs11,secrets,ssh,gpg)
cerbere &
exec gala

Some tips
Install elementary theme4 for a great theme! I can´t theme wingpanel by myself but right know I don´t need to because if this new theme. Yey!
Install this to be able to “extract files here” and stuff like that.
Set the wallpaper with this command : gsettings set org.pantheon.wallpaper picture-path “/path/to/wallpaper”
You will need some indicators. Grab indicator-datetime, and indicator-bluetooth and others indicators and install nm-applet-ubuntu and hope that it will work (it wont work for me). I think its from the Unity repo.
Read the thread and contribute if you can!

Pantheon och Arch linux

Jag har suttit ett tag och försökt fixa Pantheon på min Arch Linux installation. Det har gått över förväntan. Tyvärr funkar inte klockan som den ska (jag kan inte kompilera indicator-datetime). Jag kan rekommendera alla som är intresserade över utvecklingen att läsa denna tråd där jag och några andra gör vårt yttersta för att det skall fungera som det är tänkt. Det går framåt! När jag har fixat alla problem kommer jag utförligt att skriva hur jag har gått tillväga. Men redan nu kan du alltså leka runt.
