# iso-profiles
The Artix ISO profiles
The *community* profiles (Plasma-LXQt and MATE-LXDE) are mostly symlinks to community. Only a few files/directories differ that accomodate settings specific to the flavour. Those files/directories are ***not*** symlinks.
Compared to *base/lxqt* profiles, the community profiles differ in:
1. /etc/skel is a lot more populous, as it contains DE and application settings
2. A few scripts in /etc/local.d/ get executed at first boot:
* theme-root creates in /root/.config some symlinks to /etc/skel/.config, for allowing sudo apps follow the overall theme, and gets deleted after execution
* artix-icons converts all start-here.png icons in /usr/share/icons to the Artix logo
* 0-remove-openbox-sessions deletes openbox entries in /usr/share/xsessions; openbox sessions are unconfigured and can even hang if chosen. Also gets deleted after execution
* change-machine-id replaces machine-id in /etc and /var/lib/dbus at every boot
* mkinitcpio detects whether the installation is encrypted or not and modifies /etc/default/grub and /etc/mkinitcpio.conf accordingly
3. The default erowise mirror in mirrorlist-arch is commented out for being very slow
4. rc.local enables the magic sysrq key and replaces the boring /etc/issue with a neofetch dump
5. A nice DIR_COLORS is present in /etc.
6. /etc/environment sets QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 and QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk in the GTK ISO. Only the latter is needed in QT (I think, forgot to test).
7. /etc/vconsole.conf is symlinked to conf.d/consolefont, which is a merge of both. This allows both OpenRC to set the console font and mkinitcpio run the hook early at boot.
8. /etc/xdg/kcm-about-distrorc is branded for Artix. There are a few more config files there, stolen from other distros.
9. The mkinitcpio.conf in *desktop* profile is preconfigured for rootfs encryption, otherwise system becomes unbootable at first kernel upgrade. If encryption isn't enabled, the script in local.d removes the setting.
10. There's a custom local.bashrc in bashrc/bashrc.d, with a better PS1 and a few useful aliases and customizations.
11. default/grub is preconfigured with the artix-grub-theme and rootfs encryption; see no.9.
12. elogind/logind.conf sets KillUserProcesses=no, which seems to be forgotten to incredibly stupid default 'yes'
13. In profile.d/ libreoffice is themed with SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk
14. rc.conf sets *rc_parallel* and *rc_crashed_start* to YES
15. /etc/hosts for live sets *artix* to loopback, some programs hung for a while resolving it

16. The branding icons in /usr/share/icons/matefaenzadark are set to Artix
17. 60-ioschedulers.rules in udev/rules.d sets I/O scheduler according to disk type (ssd/rotational)

18. /root/.config contains settings for Midnight Commander
19. /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/distribution.ini is branded for Artix
20. An untested and possibly incomplete theme for LXDM lies in /usr/share
21. A KDE .rules file from Fedora is put in /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d
22. A tweaked SDDM theme appears in /usr/share/sddm
23. /etc/lightdm in GTK is themed and present in both *live* and *desktop* GTK, configured for autologin in the former
