This edition is supported by the Manjaro team and comes with a TUI installer.

Manjaro-Architect is a fork of the famous Architect Linux installer by Carl Duff, that has been modified to install Manjaro instead of Arch Linux. It is a netinstaller that downloads always the latest packages, so your system is always up to date after installation, regardless of how old your install media is.

Manjaro-Architect offers currently unparalleled customization on your Manjaro installation:

  • choose freely which kernel to use from all manjaro kernels. You can also choose multiple kernels.
  • choose any manjaro branch (stable, testing or unstable)
  • choose your desktop from all up to date manjaro editions, regardless of what install media you run the installer from. You can also choose to install just base system without graphical user interface.
  • add any number of unconfigured desktop environments
  • choose the default shell for user (bash, zsh or fish)
  • choose your graphics drivers that are installed with mhwd
  • choose arbitrary extra packages to be installed


You can also use Torrents to download Manjaro. Just download the *.torrent file and open it with a torrent program like qBittorrent

Be secure

We encourage you to check if the download was not modified by some malicious person or by an error while downloading. As a simple check, you can generate the SHA1-sum of the downloaded file and compare it with the one we provide you here. Here you can find information how to generate such a sum and check your downloaded files.

To even further enhance the security, verify the downloaded file with a GPG (GNU Privacy Guard) signature that will ensure that the file was not modified and was actually created by the Manjaro developers. Here you can find information how to use it.
