    A very warm welcome, @Xzoma :)

    I have become very fond of the Arch-based Distros myself, running about 12 of them.

    Enjoy your Linux.

    G'day Xzoma...Welcome.

    I know about as much about arch as it knows about me.....zero

    However...I am quite in love with Linux generally. Linux Mint in particular rocks my boat.

    I am Australian, living in south east asia (ftm)...back to Oz soon.

    Common sense abounds on this forum, unlike others I have belonged to

    Make that "we" have belonged to - Brian and I met (cyber) 4 years ago last October (I got banned, can't think why, must be my deodorant). Also got 3 - 4 others here from the same origin, all of whom I count as friends.

    Add humour and friendship to all of the above, and a heaped spoonful of a shared enjoyment of Linux.

    Stir thoroughly, and then serve.

    Serves millions.

    How difficult is the transition from Ubuntu/Debian based distros to Arch based distros? I sometimes use the command line to update or install programs, as it's faster than using the software center.

    What is a good source to learn pacman commands or is it not necessary with easy Arch based distros like Manjaro?

    G'day @lekkerlinux and welcome to linux.org :)

    Start a Thread in General LInux if you want more Specifics - https://www.linux.org/forums/general-linux.143/ or maybe in Arch might be better https://www.linux.org/forums/arch-and-derivatives.161/

    ... so that we don't "hijack" @Xzoma 's welcome

    But briefly - Arch have "Pacman Rosetta" - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta

    ... which I find good as I move around the Families.

    Anything in Rosetta applies to Manjaro as well. In many Linux, you can accomplish things just with the GUI (windows-like point and click), but command line experience is very helpful, and can be more versatile.

    Thank you very much Wizardfromoz, I had something like that but only much shorter version of Pacman Rosetta. I will study it.

    My brother is also down under, but his not a wizard he works for the Queensland Federal government or something.

    Thanks for the help, I will click my heals when I need you again.

    Hello Xzoma,

    Welcome to Linux.org.

    I met Condobloke and Wizard on that other cyber place and I'm surprised I haven't been banned.
    Linux.org is a fun forum and an excellent place to learn and offer assistance where you can.

    I use Ubuntu 18.04 and LMDE 3 (Cindy) and Peppermint 9 on old discarded desktops.
    I also use Antix 17.4.1 and BionicPup64 Puppy Linux as Sports Car Linux Distros as they run fast as hell.

    I tried Arch Linux and I found out how much I didn't know about Linux as it ain't user friendly imo.

    https://www.linux.org/threads/lmde-3-cindy.20861/

    Yep I prefer it over the standard Linux Mint editions because it's Debian and for the most remains the same from its final release to EOL except for security updates.

    I tried to get LMDE 2 (Betsy) to install but never could for whatever reason it kept getting errors and wouldn't ever install so I gave up.

    When LMDE 3 (Cindy) was released as a final I downloaded and installed it and it works OOTB on the same desktop that LMDE 2 (Betsy) wouldn't install on.

    I like it. :)
