This is the last OS I haven't tried yet.

How do you install VLC on Archlinux????

My question is; Is it the same as installing an app on Ubuntu? Is it the same lines in terminal as Ubuntu? I don't get the $ in the terminal but a # instead

OK found the answer for that one
"If the last character of your shell prompt is # rather than $, you are operating as the superuser. This means that you have administrative privileges. This can be potentially dangerous, since you are able to delete or overwrite any file on the system. Unless you absolutely need administrative privileges, do not operate as the superuser."


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install vlc

sudo apt-get install mozilla-plugin-vlc

Doesn't seem to do anything

hi, archlinux is really not supported for PineA64 any longer... by that I mean that it won't be receiving any more updates.  We recommend you use either ubuntu or debian;  we also have Gentoo now if your interested in trying that.

Both debian and ubuntu are 'debian' derivatives; and they both use [ apt search ] and apt-get, which are designed to pull from debian repositories.

I find Ubuntu too bloated for what I need. All I need is a terminal, VLC, Kodi and Chrome.

Does Debian come with the minimum?

Both of them come with a 'minimum'.

... we call them 'base' images (there is no desktop) and you can run them headless if you want... or you can load over the top of either base what you want.

Gentoo should deliver all those without the bloat.
