Now that dbus is no longer compiled with X11 support (Q4 2018) you have to call X11 apps like this:

sudo dbus-launch --exit-with-session nemo


Updating Mirrors

reflector -c US --fastest 5 --age 48 --protocol http --sort rate --verbose --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Pacman Entropy

1. Open a terminal as root and run
pacman-key --init
2. Open a second terminal as root and run
cat /dev/sda > /dev/null
  • After about 1 minute the kernel will have enough "true" entropy to finish the command.
3. Finally run
pacman-key --populate archlinux


You can automatically scan for updates to your aur installed packages with 'cower -vdu'
