Manjaro Linux is a desktop-oriented, user-friendly distribution based on Arch Linux.

manjaroManjaro Linux is a desktop-oriented, user-friendly distribution based on Arch Linux. Some of its more pronounced features include an intuitive installation process, automatic hardware detection, special Bash scripts for managing graphics drivers, and extra desktop configuration options.

Manjaro Linux comes in three editions featuring the Xfce, GNOME 3 (with the Cinnamon Shell) and KDE desktops.

Arch Linux has been my hands down favorite Linux distro for a few years now. Recently on the Arch message board,  I read about Manjaro Linux.

Manjaro Linux is a new Arch based distro that comes pre-configured with an xfce4 desktop environment, which just happens to be my DE of choice.  Manjaro’s a small project and the current release is still in testing stage. With that said,  I found it to run quite well without show stopping bugs for both my installs.

Manjaro installs via a nice graphical installer in just a half hour or so. I installed it in vbox and was so impressed, I went ahead and replaced an outdated Ubuntu install on my laptop.

I did notice one small annoyance using Manjaro, however,  it was easy fix. When opening  Thunar file manager for the first time after start up, there was a 20-30 second delay. Removing the  gvfs-smb package with pacman solved that issue.

To me, Manjaro seems to have  great potential to displace some of the “easy beginner”  type distros. If it maintains compatibility with Arch, it will also attract some Arch users such as myself. While I’m definitely not planning on replacing my other Arch installs, I do see a use for a pre configured Arch with xfce. I don’t use my laptop enough to be interested in a several hour long  Arch install and manual configure session. Offer a quick to install, pre-configured Arch w/ xfce, and I’m all over it!
These guys have done a great job so far, and have even set up a nice looking website. Give Manjaro a try if you’ve wanted to try Arch, but were put off by the installation and configuration process.
I have only one minor complaint with Manjaro, and this is strictly personal and easily changed. It’s the choice of not promoting pacman via the command line, combined with the pkgbrowser GUI package browser. This allows the user to tap into the power and flexibility that pacman brings to package management, combined with pkgbrowser, which is the ultimate app to search and research packages, including the Arch AUR.
