GuruMan Linux

Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 18.0 | November 16, 2018

GuruMan Linux – a KDE spin on Manjaro KDE Linux 18. GuruMan is based on x86_64-stable with kernel 4.19.1.

The GuruMan Linux KDE-18.0-stable-x86_64.iso can be installed in either a VM (Oracle VirtualBox or VMWare Tools) but I have integrated OpenVM-Tools into the ISO image which should work for either environment.

You can, of course, install GuruMan Linux on bare metal using a utility like Etcher (which I recommend) to create a bootable USB or create a bootable DVD and install it that way.

PCManFM File Manager has been incorporated into this ISO for those who want to replace Dolphin as their file manager of choice due to the security issues surrounding Dolphin that don’t exist in PCManFM. I left Dolphin in this distro, however, just in case you prefer that file manager instead regardless of security risk. Filezilla & gftp have been included as file transfer applications to choose from. My preference is gftp. If you use FireFox Web browser (my defacto Web browser in Linux), you will see an icon that pops up on the Task bar asking if you wish to install Plasma Browser Integration to support the add-on in Firefox for KDE. This is recommended to install. This distro uses the sddm display manager and pamac which replaces octopi as the package manager in GuruMan Linux.

The project founder is Dan Calloway.

Feliz – a bootable live CD which offers the quickest and easiest way to install Arch Linux and a selection of software from the Arch repos.

Feliz purpose is to speed up installation of Arch Linux, plus a desktop environment and a ‘shopping list’ of extras like web browsers, office software and programming tools. An initialising phase gathers essential data of location, username, and passwords, and works with the user to set up their partitioning and desktop environment requirements. The script then runs without further intervention to the end.

It starts a live session of Arch Linux, and runs the script. All you have to do is follow the prompts. Installation follows closely the Arch Wiki beginners’ guide, and hopefully you will understand something of the process by the time it has finished; you may even like to try a manual installation with the help of the Wiki.

The live system works in text mode.

Feliz is a successor of Achoo! project, both founded and developed by Elizabeth Mills.
