How to install lomiri?

How Lomiri can be installed in Manjaro desktop?

I tried yay -Ss lomiri and nothing was there

Lomiri we have currently on ARM architecture only. We will see when we port it to x64.

Is it easy to install it to try it on the pinephone from a phosh build? Or do I just need to wait for the official release, cause I really wanna play with it.

We will have a preview image most likely by next weekend.

Thanks! I’ll be eagerly waiting!

I’m eagerly waiting as well! Lomiri + Manjaro + Kirigami Apps sounds wonderful. Possibly a candidate for a Manjaro Community Edition PinePhone? :wink:

is lomiri available yet to install? I thought I saw somewhere that is was being used on manjaro for pinephone but I don’t see it anywhere.

Well It seems Lomiri is in the Manjaro repos compiled for the ARM architecture but not for x86 or x86_64

I’m sorry if this is a noob question, but I’m still not sure how to install it on my Pinephone CE:
I searched for it using yay -Ss lomiri and found many packages with Lomiri apps but I didn’t find a package with the actual base Lomiri interface, nor did I find a single package or group that installs the whole Lomiri environment.
Here is the output of yay -Ss lomiri:

I am currently using GNOME with Phosh and am finding it really buggy, so I would like to try out other UIs.
Thanks in advance!

Flash ready to use lomiri dev image.

Thank you.
Is there any way I can just install a non-alpha version on an existing install?

There is no non-alpha version, it is still under heavy developement.

You can download the pkg from unstable though.


Back in January, one of the UBPorts guy has made an earlier-than-alpha Lomiri desktop session available in… Manjaro.

(picture of the desktop included)

If you have an available VM, partition or a spare computer in which to try to get it running, below how to set up the repo.

Beware that it might have some conflicting packages with other DEs or even with some Manjaro-specific stuff, so please try this at your own risk (not on your daily driver).

sudo gedit /etc/pacman.conf


Server =

You might also need to set the branch to unstable in /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf

sudo pacman -S lomiri-desktop-session (or better install it via Pamac)

I’ve managed to install it but it wouldn’t start from GDM, maybe with LightDM (seems it’s the one that was tested) or by tinkering you could get it running.

Hey mate, any news about Lomiri for x64?

Great article about Pinetab OS state of the art (use any translator, those that not speak Castilian Spanish)
