Manjaro 0.8.5 - 0.8.7.1 Installation Guide

note: With the exception of Openbox and the Net-Edition, Manjaro 0.8.5 introduces a new user-friendly graphical installer. Equivalent to the original "stable" installation method, it does not currently support advanced features such as the 'Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI. However, the original command-line installer can still be used instead to access these advanced features.
How to use the new graphical installer. No technical knowledge required.


Manjaro 0.8.4 Installation Guides

Tip: Unless necessary, use the Stable Installer for the best results. The Testing Installer is aimed at more experienced users, and provides additional features such as support for the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI).

Manjaro 0.8.4 again introduces a number of changes and improvements. In addition to introducing a brand new theme and look, enhanced software package optimisation has resulted in even more applications and features being packed into each flavour. This includes full multi-media support once again. Additionally, the Openbox and MATE flavours also provide access to the Arch User Repository (AUR) out of the box.

A simple guide where no technical knowledge or expertise is required.

Manjaro 0.8.3 Installation Guides

Tip: It is recommended for most users - beginners and experienced alike - to use the Stable Installer for the best results. The Testing Installer is aimed at more experienced users, and provides additional features such as support for the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI), B-tree file system (btrfs), and Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) storage system.

Manjaro 0.8.3 encompasses a number of significant changes from the previous release. All software packages have been optimised, the use of resources have been streamlined, and performance has consequently been boosted. As such, this release provides a faster, leaner, and more efficient system that requires even less memory to run. However, in order to reduce the sizes of the installation files, Libre-Office, and use of the Arch User Repository (AUR) must be installed and enabled manually.

Manjaro 0.8.2 Installation Guides

Tip: It is recommended that unless there is a specific reason to do otherwise, most users - beginners and experienced alike - should use the standard Stable Installer for the best results.

In addition to the standard Stable Installer, Manjaro 0.8.2 also provides the experimental Testing Installer, which is specifically aimed at more experienced users. The Testing Installer provides several new - and advanced - features not otherwise found in the Stable Installer. This includes supporting the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI), B-tree file system (btrfs), and Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) storage system.

Manjaro 0.8.0 and 0.8.1 Installation Guides

Both guides provided are virtually identical. The only real difference between them is that the Guide for Beginners utilises the assisted preparation method to automatically prepare and partition your computer's hard disk for you. The Guide for Experienced Users requires that the hard disk be prepared and partitioned manually. The Guide for Beginners also provides additional detail and explanations on how to edit various configuration files, while the Guide for Experienced Users assumes existing knowledge and expertise.
