Jump to navigation Jump to search

1. Download the an ISO file and corresponding .sig file from official sources(see Download Manjaro below)

2. Install GPG:

sudo pacman -S gnupg wget

3. Next, you have 2 possible ways to import Manjaro's keys. Choose one of them:

3.1 Download all keys from the Manjaro Developers from GitHub:


Next, import all the keys in the downloaded .GPG file into your gnupg keyring:

gpg --import manjaro.gpg

3.2 If you do not trust GitHub, import Philip Müller's GPG key to your system (afterwards, select the key by entering its number and pressing ENTER):

gpg --keyserver hkp:// --search-keys 11C7F07E

4. Finally, verify if the .ISO image file was built by one of Manjaro's Developers or Philip Müller:

gpg --verify manjaro-xfce-16.06-pre2-x86_64.iso.sig

Compare the key, which was used to sign the .ISO file to the key

Check, whether the .ISO was verified by Philip Müller's key ("11C7F07E") or another Manjaro Developer's key, which you have imported to your system. If this is the case, you can be sure that your .iso file was built by Philip Müller or another Manjaro Developer.
