Overview

The Manjaro Settings Manager offers you a series of settings, which are either enabled by Manjaro (i.e. installation of multiple kernels) or are missing from at least some of popular Desktop Environments and Window Managers.

Manjaro Settings Manager is under development and might offer even more settings than illustrated on the left.



Language

The system language can be added, changed, and removed in this window.



Kernel

This window enables the user to easily manage and change all available kernels for Manjaro. Running and installed kernels can be easily identified.

New kernels can be installed by pressing the "Install" button. Please consider the "Recommended" tag when choosing a kernel. All necessary kernel modules will be installed automatically with a new kernel as well. Additionally, the new kernel will be added to the user's GRUB menu. Different kernels can be booted by choosing "Advanced Options for Manjaro Linux" in GRUB and pressing <Enter>. The newest installed Kernel will be booted by default.



Time and Date

Some Desktop Environments do not offer an easy way to edit time and date (i.e. XFCE). This window enables the user to do that.



Hardware Detection

This window offers an easy way install free/non-proprietary/open-source and non-free/proprietary/closed-source graphics card drivers by the click of a button.

If Manjaro did not install a wireless network card driver during installation, it can be installed here as well.
