Pantheon on Manjaro Linux!

Pantheon Desktop Environment on Manjaro Linux, just like Elementary OS.

Posted by Kirk on 4 January 2016

I was having a look around at a few other Linux distributions like Ubuntu-Mate, Arch and Linux Mint (Debian Edition). I was looking for a distro running some later versions of packages and possibly running Linux Kernel Version 4.

I really like the idea of Arch's rolling release philosophy, but having not mastered Linux to the degree necessary to put together my own custom desktop, I decided to give the Arch based Manjuro a whirl. I liked it a lot, but I like the Pantheon DE better. That got me thinking, can't I have my cake and eat it too! It turns out I can. There is a Manjaro Community Project called Manjaro Pantheon Shell and they have a pre-release available.

Manjaro-Pantheon-3

I think I'll download it and give it a go!! I'll let you know how I get on.
