Manjaro Presentation – Sutter 07-05-18

Manjaro, pronounced Manharo, is a Linux distribution based on Arch Linux.  However, it is not a more user-friendly version of Arch.  Its repositories are separate from Arch.  It is a rolling release, meaning that it is updated continuously rather than being rolled out at pre-determined intervals like Ubuntu and other Linux distros.

The current version is 17.1.11.
Download it from

Some available desktop environments are
Manjaro XFCE Edition (17.1.11)
Manjaro KDE Edition (17.1.11)
Manjaro GNOME Edition (17.1.11)
Manjaro-Architect ISO
See more options at

To update system from the Terminal, enter:  sudo pacman -Syyu
Proceed with update y/n?

Make sure to read each screen.  Simply entering Y at all prompts won’t work.

GUI alternative is Octopi;

See the Manjaro Beginner User Files at

Many familiar Linux programs are pre-installed by default.
