Yes, you can use Manjaro-tools to create a bare-bones Manjaro system. The process involves using the buildiso feature of Manjaro-tools, which allows you to configure and build your own custom Manjaro ISO. Here’s a high-level overview of the steps you would typically follow:

sudo pacman -Syu --needed git base-devel manjaro-chrootbuild manjaro-tools-iso-git manjaro-tools-yaml-git manjaro-tools-base-git
  1. Copy the default tools configuration to your home directory and make the necessary adjustments to suit your needs.
