Manjaro KDE is the KDE edition of Manjaro Linux, a desktop distribution based on Arch Linux. Manjaro 0.8.10 KDE is the latest edition, released at the same time as the Xfce and Openbox editions.

Manjaro is one of a handful of desktop distributions based on Arch Linux that are attempting to put a more user-friendly interface on the power of Arch Linux. The others are Antergos and Kademar.

This post shows some screenshots from a test installation of the KDE edition of Manjaro 0.8.10.

At first boot, you are hit with two application windows, one atop the other. The one in the foreground is just a greeter, or welcome, application.

Turbulence is the name of the one in the background. It is a feeble attempt to bring the features of Kapudan or Kaptan to Manjaro. It will only let you change the desktop background and choose what folders to create in your home directory.

Homerun Kicker, a non-fulscreen version of Homerun Launcher, is the default menu style.

There is an application called Storage Manager. It’s used for setting up Cloud storage services on the desktop. Dropbox, Box, YouSendIt. GoogleDrive and any WebDav-capable service are supported.

The default graphical package manager is Octopi. At this stage, it could never make a Top-10 list of the best graphical package managers.

The next screenshots are of the KDE Plasma Netbook interface. I don’t think anybody still cares about it, given that netbooks are no longer in fashion. This screenshot shows the main interface.
