Docker is a tool that is used to run software in a container. It's a great way for developers and users to worry less about compatibility with an operating system and dependencies because the contained software should run identically on any system.

Docker is available for download and installation on Manjaro as well as most other distributions of Linux. After Docker is installed, you can use it to install software packages much the same way you would use your distro's package manager to download an app. The difference of using Docker is that everything is more automated, with compatability and dependencies no longer being potential issues.

In this guide, we'll show you how to install Docker on Manjaro Linux and get started with installing containerized software.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to install Docker
  • How to run Docker without root
  • How to search for a Docker image
  • How to install a Docker image
  • How to run a Docker image
  • How to monitor Docker with various commands

An USB stick able to store, and let us boot from several Linux distributions images is a very handy tool to have at our disposal. In a previous article we saw how to manually setup and create it from scratch; however, since such operation can quickly become tedious, in this tutorial we will see how to use Ventoy, a tool able to make all the dirty work for us.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to download Ventoy
  • How to use Ventoy to setup a multiboot USB stick
  • How to test the multiboot device without rebooting with Qemu

OpenSSH is a network connectivity and remote login tool that securely encrypts all traffic, originally developed by OpenBSD developers for use in their operating system. Considering the OpenBSD developers’ primary focus on security, it is no surprise that OpenSSH quickly became the standard remote login implementation for all Linux and Unix operating systems. OpenSSH uses a client server model with the ssh command providing client functionality and sshd providing server functionality.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to install OpenSSH
  • How to login to a remote shell
  • How to copy files between machines with scp
  • How to enable key based authentication and disable password based login
  • How to save configurations of frequently accessed machines for easier connections
  • How to mount a remote file-system over ssh protocal
  • How to use port forwarding/tunneling
  • to access a machine behind NAT/firewall
  • to create a web proxy

Arch Linux and Manjaro are two popular linux distributions, or distros, that have been getting more attention and gaining more users over the years. Although the two distros have a lot in common (in fact, Manjaro is an Arch Linux derivative), there are still many differences. These differences stem from each project’s philosophical approach, goals, and target audience. This results in pros and cons to using each. This article will help you learn about the similarities and differences between the two, and help you decide which one to use if you are not sure.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • What is Arch Linux
  • What is Manjaro

Wouldn't it be great to run Manjaro Linux on your system without having to give up Windows 10? Well, you can! As a matter of fact, you have two options for doing this. One option is to create a dual boot system, which gives you a prompt when your computer boots up, asking you which operating system you'd like to load into. The second option is to install Manjaro on a virtual machine.

Each method has their pros and cons, but running a dual boot system means you have no virtualized hardware or unnecessary overhead. Both operating systems will have direct access to your computer's hardware. The big downside is that you will have to reboot your PC every time you want to load into the other operating system. If you can live with that, then let's get started.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to resize Windows 10 hard disk partition
  • How to install Manjaro alongside Windows 10
  • How to load into Manjaro or Windows 10 at system boot

Manjaro is a popular and fast growing Linux distribution geared towards home computing. If you are thinking about installing it on your system but need to know the system requirements first, we've got you covered in this guide.

Manjaro is available for download on its official site, but there are several versions available. "Official" editions of Manjaro include either the Xfce, KDE, or GNOME desktop environment. The "Community" editions feature either Cinnamon, Budgie, LXDE, or a slew of others.

Why do we mention this? Well, the desktop environment you choose is going to impact Manjaro's system requirements. Some of these GUIs run better on older hardware than others. But regardless of which one you choose, you'll be given all of the relevant requirements in this article.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • Manjaro system requirements
  • Desktop environment performance impact on Manjaro

Manjaro Linux has several default desktop environments available for download. The official site's download page lists Xfce as the top recommendation, although KDE Plasma is among those on the list available for download.
