This community edition is tailored to power users. Default configurations are such that the tools are friendly to newcomers.

Getting started

Download the ISO here and install:

  • On the LiveCD, the password is "manjaro".
  • The installer can be found on the menu on top left -> "System Tools" -> "Install Manjaro Linux".
  • There's a caveat when installing in VirtualBox.

If you're new to Awesome, a short tutorial can be found here.

Known issues

Screen resolution does not resize with VirtualBox

There's an issue with the video driver support for VirtualBox. In the virtual machine settings, under "Display", change the graphics controller to "VBoxVGA" before installing. If you do it after, this will result in a black screen.
