After installing archlinux, there is nothing, the first way i want to test the x window system(X11), X11 is basic GUI desktop there's nothing on there. Just plain desktop without any menu, just some xterm apps to run application.
The X.Org project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System. The development work is being done in conjunction with the freedesktop.org community.
To installing xorg on archlinux just follow these steps
1. Install xorg
open terminal then login as root or super user
#pacman -S xorg
This will install all xorg video driver, if you want to specific, then choose that you needs. To install all just enter.
2. Instal X, to run X window system
#pacman -S xorg-xinit xorg-twm xorg-xclock xterm
This will install some basic apps to run x server
3. Run X
After you install that, then run by type:
You will see like this just plain desktop.
If the x windows is work then you can continue to install any desktop environtment.
On this x windows you can also run GUI based application, like firefox, file manager, etc.
To exit X, just type exit.
Done & Enjoy.
