Downloading the ISO image

  • Download the Manjaro Linux ISO with your favorite desktop environment [KDE, GNOME, XFCE] from our SourceForge page.
  • You can also download our latest releases through the BitTorrent protocol. This option usually provides faster download speeds and it also helps reducing our hoster's bandwidth consumption. To download through this method, you will have to install a BitTorrent application. The most common would be: µTorrent, Transmission, Deluge, Azureus. So, if you've set up your BitTorrent client, go an grab a torrent of your favorite Manjaro Linux flavor.

You will find x86 and x86-64 ISO images, make sure you download the appropriate one for your hardware.

Writing the ISO image to a CD/DVD

note: If you intend to install Manjaro to a virtual machine using Oracle's Virtualbox, it will not be necessary to burn the ISO to a CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Virtualbox is able to read and install from ISO files directly.

Burning the ISO to a CD/DVD from Microsoft Windows.

For burning the ISO from the Microsoft Windows Operating System you can use the free CDBurnerXP tool.

Burning the ISO to a CD/DVD from Linux

For burning the ISO from a Linux based Operating System you can use Xfburn, K3b, Brasero Disk Burner, and many others. These are usually found in your current distro's repositories, and sometimes, they come pre installed with the system.

Writing the ISO image to a USB flash drive

From Windows

You can use the free and open source tool Win32 Disk Imager. Run it and select the right USB drive, then browse for your Manjaro Linux ISO. Note: Win32 Disk Imager assumes that image files have the " .img " extension, because of that you will most likely be unable to see your ISO unless you do a tweak. When browsing for the image, at the bottom, replace the extensions with " *.iso* ". That way you will be able to see and select your ISO image.

From Linux based Operating Systems

Warning: This will destroy all data on your USB drive.

1. First, format your USB drive with FAT32 using your favorite tool, like GParted.

2. Using " lsblk ", make sure your USB drive is unmounted, and make sure your use /dev/sdx instead of /dev/sdx1.

3. Change directory to your ISO location (Example): Template:Term

4. Then run the following command: Template:Term

The process will take a few minutes, depending on the size of the image and your hardware.

note: It will not show the progress, it will show a message only after the process is finished.
