Manjaro ARM 22.06 released!

We are proud to announce the release of Manjaro ARM 22.06.

You can find all our images on manjaro.org!

All editions are now using pipewire by default

We are still working on getting great support for the Quartz64, but we will not make it part of these releases, until we have most of the stuff working. The mainline kernel 5.19 will likely give us a great boost to achieving this.
But you can find our weekly images on Github for Quartz64-A and Quartz64-B in our Manjaro ARM Flasher.
These images are currently Dev images, based on Unstable branch.

Application for flashing images

We have our own GUI app to make it easy for users to flash a Manjaro ARM image on to an SD card, eMMC card or USB stick.
If you 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, install the dependencies listed in the README.md and then run it with sudo ./manjaro-arm-flasher.

First Time setup on Minimal edition

This release sports the First Time setup for all Minimal 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)
  • username
  • additional user groups (optional)
  • full name
  • password for that username
  • password for root
  • timezone
  • locale
  • hostname

Then the setup script will set these settings and reboot to the login screen.
