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 https://manjaro.org/get-manjaro/

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 https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Install_Desktop_Environments

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

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

GUI alternative is Octopi; https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Octopi

See the Manjaro Beginner User Files at www.slobytes.org/linux/Manjaro/Beginner_User_Guide.pdf

Many familiar Linux programs are pre-installed by default.
