TalkingArch – a modification of the Arch Linux installation media, enabling the installation of Arch Linux, also for the visually impaired.

TalkingArch started as Chris Brannon’s personal project to help him more easily install Arch Linux with speech. With much help and input from the community, and with the wonderful work of the Archiso team powering the back end, TalkingArch has grown to become one of the best available live images for rescue and recovery, as well as for installing Arch Linux.

Although it is not an official Arch Linux install image, the aim of the project is to stay as consistent as possible with the official install image and Arch principles, while adding speech and braille support to allow Arch Linux to be installed by blind and visually impaired users.

Desktop environment: CLI
Architecture: ARM
Based on: Arch Linux

Media: Install
The last version | Released: 0.8.1 | October 19, 2016

arkOS – an operating system for securely self-hosting your online life from the comfort of your home. It is a flavour of Arch Linux ARM with a focus on easy self-hosting of a variety of content.

It allows you to easily host your own website, email, “cloud” and more, all within arm’s reach. It does this by interfacing with existing software and allowing the user to easily update and change settings with a graphical interface. No more need to depend on external cloud services, which can be insecure “walled gardens” that require you to give up control over your data.

arkOS has several different components that come together to make a seamless self-hosting experience possible on your embedded device or dedicated server. Each of these components will work with each other out-of-the-box, allowing you to host your websites, email, social networking accounts, cloud services, and many other things from your arkOS node.

Features:
– Built for embedded devices – arkOS is primarily an operating system for embedded devices. In fact, arkOS was initially designed for use on the Raspberry Pi, which is a simple single-board computer not much bigger than a credit card. Embedded devices are prized for their relatively low cost (usually less than $100), their availability, and their general-purpose nature. Other embedded devices boast more impressive specifications, enabling you to pay only for the performance you need. Choose the device that works best for you.

– Easy to set up – Download one of our easy installation programs and run it on your home computer. It will guide you through the process of downloading and installing arkOS to whichever type of media your embedded device supports. Setting up a home server couldn’t be simpler.

– Get connected – Plug the installation media into your device, plug the device into your home router, and you’re ready to host your own files, sites and cloud data. arkOS works right out of the box. Connect to the device via your home computer, and finish installing and customizing your arkOS node.

– Easily managed from your browser window – arkOS allows you to stay on top of your online life from an easy-to-navigate web panel. From here, you can easily install new applications, upload files, manage your cloud, update your system and much more. You can monitor the health of your system and get alerts if a problem occurs. arkOS can even back up your information, encrypt and store it offsite in case you need to roll back some changes.

– Open and fully extensible – arkOS is open source, meaning that any developer can take a look inside and tweak it to their liking, or submit improvements for everyone to enjoy. It has an open application architecture, so new functionalities can be easily developed and included in the arkOS App Store. A full REST API allows you to network your servers, remotely control them with your own software… the possibilities are endless.

GuruMan Linux

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.
