    Awesome. Simple and precise. Much appreciated.

    One thing I would add is

    pacman -S gnome-software-packagekit-plugin

    to allow for package and updates installation via GNOME’s Software app.

      Do not use Gnome software app with Arch. That would be kinda weird and most likely for sure break Gnome. It has nothing to do with pacman so yea not good advice.

    This doesn’t work for me. Followed to the letter and get a black screen with a flashing cursor. Tried other managers lightdm and sddm. Nothing. I mean, I could get a GNOME desktop on Gentoo building from freaking source. How is this more complicated? Apparently a few others on Reddit have also had GDM fail.
