We are proud to announce the release of Manjaro ARM 21.06, which will soon be available via manjaro.org.
This time we increased the amount of devices we do images for. You can find them all on manjaro.org.
We also welcome 2 new official editions to the fold. Gnome and Sway editions.
Manjaro ARM is proud to be the default installation on the Pinebook Pro from Pine64.
We have put in a lot of work to get to this point and we are excited that we have been accepted by the creators of this laptop, as a great OS option.
Pine64 also recently announced that Manjaro ARM with Plasma Mobile is going to be the stock OS on the retail PinePhones going forward. What an honor!
Manjaro ARM Gnome edition!
We have been working on a new GUI app to make it easy for users to flash a Manjaro ARM image on to an SD card or eMMC card.
Ifyou are on Manjaro ARM, simply install
manjaro-arm-flasher and launch the app “Manjaro ARM Flasher” from your menu. This will download and flash the image of your choice.
You can also manually run the application (if you are not running Manjaro ARM) by downloading this python script, make it executable with
chmod +x manjaro-arm-flasher and then run it with
sudo ./manjaro-arm-flasher. It requires
python-blkinfo 0.1.3 to be installed, which can be installed with
pip install blkinfo.
This release sports the First Time setup for all images, also via SSH. This means that at first boot, you will be asked about the following:
- keyboard layout (except on pinebook, that is fixed to us layout)
- additional user groups (optional)
- full name
- password for that username
- password for root
Then the setup script will set these settings and reboot to the login screen.
