Netrunner Rolling 2015.11 terminal emulator

Netrunner Rolling 2015.11 is the latest edition of Netrunner Rolling, the line of Netrunner that’s based on Manjaro, a Linux desktop distribution that’s itself based on Arch Linux.

This release is mostly an ISO refresh, but it comes with a few new features, like a new graphical installer. See Install Netrunner Rolling 2015.11 on encrypted LVM using Thus for a recently-published article related to that graphical installer.

In this article, you’ll see screenshots from a test installation of Netrunner Rolling 2015.11 on real hardware.

Netrunner Rolling 2015.11 uses a recent KDE desktop with a custom panel called Netrunner Panel. Figure 1 shows the default desktop.

If you intend to download and install it, be aware that I could not get it to load in a virtual environment – VirtualBox or VMware Player.
