When you're a C-list YouTube celebrity, it gets even more difficult when literally thousands of people ask you how to do X or get Y. +This is a set of scripts either can either (1) install Arch Linux automatically with a typical Arch ISOed USB, and perhaps more prominently (2) automatically install and configure all of the prerequisites for an advanced Linux desktop environment, using my configs [here](https://github.com/LukeSmithxyz/voidrice) as a base. -The LARBS are a final solution to all of that. These scripts are to be run on a fresh install of Arch Linux, and they create a user, install all required programs and set up dotfiles directly from Github to give normal people a fairly sleek Linux configuration without hundreds of autsitic hours. I did the work, so why should you? +Really, the goal of this script is to start a kind of Linux meta-distribution which makes the more nuanced aspects of an advanced Linux setup available to even Linux newbies.

This will install `packer`, an AUR helper, and will use it to install the last few (very important) programs from the AUR. +After prompting you for some settings and some package choices, the system will install my full i3-gaps tiling window manager Desktop Environment. If you don't know what that means, don't worry, because I've gone to great lengths to write readable instructions about how to go pro super quick with this system.
