This edition 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. It is a netinstaller that downloads the latest available packages, so your system is up to date right after installation, regardless of how old your install media is.

Manjaro-Architect offers total customization on your Manjaro installation:

  • choose which Manjaro kernels you want to use, or multiple kernels.
  • choose any Manjaro branch (stable, testing or unstable)
  • choose your desktop from all current Manjaro editions, regardless of what install media you run the installer from. You can also install the base system only without graphical user interface.
  • add any unconfigured desktop environment
  • choose the default shell for user (bash, zsh or fish)
  • choose your graphics drivers to be installed with mhwd
  • choose extra packages to be installed

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 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.
