Papyros Shell

Since I want to capture what I did to take a look at the initial stages Papyros shell I am jotting down what worked for me.  It sounds like soon the developers will have working downloadable images to try so its worth waiting for those.  Getting ArchLinux going in Virtualbox is out of scope.

At this point though I just wanted to see what it looks like.  Sounds like the best option should be the powerpack route: https://github.com/papyros/powerpack
Unfortunately that has a bug right now: https://github.com/papyros/powerpack/issues/6

I tried some of the other options also but ultimately below is the only one that worked for me.

Get yaourt going: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-yaourt-to-easily-download-arch-linux-community-packages)

yaourt -S qt5-base
yaourt -S qt5-wayland-dev-git
yaourt -S qt5-declarative-git
yaourt -S qt-settings-bzr
