Hi everyone!
I’m new in the forum. But I love Manjaro since my first time with this OS, I think it was about 5 or 6 years before!
I love Linux, as a simple user, I don’t know anything about coding, but love to work on the issues as they come when I’m investigating/practicing with my PC. And I think there is not a better place to be as I try to learn a bit everyday about Linux and Manjaro
I use Manjaro KDE on my Raspberry Pi 4, and works so fantastic by now…and I use Manjaro-kde on my old IntelCore2Duo, and it’s simply a beauty!
Thanks for all your work! I really appreciate it! And I hope [though I’ve no much time (I work in Public Health as a Dentist) to spend on my pc/raspy] that I’d can learn, step by step, and collaborate with the community.
By the way, I’m 48 years old, and live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Love!
Nico

Hey there!

I’ve been using Linux about 2 years now. I started when I got the ol blue screen from Win 7, no way you’re going to catch this gal on Win 10! I’d give up computing before I run that trash on my PC. I started on Mint, but with my hefty gaming habits, learned about Manjaro. I know nothing of coding, though am getting comfortable with terminal usage. I’ll tell you that I absolutely love Linux and all the capabilities, it’s certainly a learning curve, but I’m sure as time goes by, this community will teach me to be proficient!

I’m open to any tips and tricks to oil up my machine for flawless computing. I’m currently running many of the popular gaming packages Wine, Lutris, PlayOnLinux and if course Steam with Proton. If there’s anything you could recommend, drop me a message!

Branch: Stable

Desktop Environment: XCFE

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-6600K CPU @ 3.50GHz

Hello to all. I am brand new to ManjaroXFCE, but have been using Mint-MATE for past 12 years, plus “playing around” with many different “Puppies and Dogs”. I have a number of computers, but am running Manjaro iso from a flash drive using Pentoy. I’ll try to get any info I may require from reading in the forum, in lieu of posting a query. And, if I can possibly offer up any assistance, on a general Linux post, I will try.

Hi!
I am an old user of Linux for 20+ years, and have witnessed the development from a niche system to a world-class OS, with many flavors!

Manjaro KDE is my first venture away from Ubuntu-derived distros. I am looking forward to learning and seeing what it can do.

Thanks to the developers for the hard work that you have put into Manjaro. It shows very well!

Hi,
I am an old fellow who freed himself from Windows 10 tyranny last March. I installed Linux Mint on my laptop and never looked back. I love Linux and have learned a ton about it in the past 10 months. I am no coder, but I have learned some basic Python and can write simple shell scripts. I am running Manjaro Stable on my new Raspberry Pi4. I run the XFCE DE with i3wm on top. I love i3, but like to have the GUI underneath it (still a noob I guess…).

Quick shout out to all the experts across all the forums who share their experience and give great guidance to those of us who are still learning. THANK YOU!!

Hi there!
Long time windows user here…i guess not anymore hehehe
I’m fairly new to the linux world, but so far i’m liking this place, and i’m willing to learn the necessary ropes of Linux in general.
Got to say, the open source world sounds awesome and feels good to slowly become a part of it
much love and be safe everyone <3

Hey Everyone!! Back from the old forums finally.

Trying to grab some of my old howto’s and topics from the old forum and bring them back over. Mostly use on RPi4 and in a VM. :slight_smile:

Hey all, I’ve used Manjaro as my main distro for almost two years now and I’ve lurked on the forums off and on since June.

I’ve got a background in web development, but I’ve become more and more interested in ARM devices of late. I’ve become interested in helping out with the Manjaro ARM effort, which is what prompted me to join the forums properly.

I’ve got a RPi 400 and a '20 PBP that are begging for a proper distro. I’ll be following Strit’s post on making images and praying that I don’t mess it up somehow.

You don’t actually have to make the images. They are already made for those devices. :slight_smile:

Oh, cool! Man, this project has done a lot in the last 6 months. Last time I went through here, there was just KDE, i3, and XFCE editions, and it was tricky to find the links. Everything is so much more organized now!

I just wish there was an image for Jade for PBPro, but even the emmc installer I made isn’t flashing properly. I will definitely be using that Sway image for my RPi.
