I would think, not as straightforward as with other DEs. Ste74 wouldn't complain so much if it were easy. ;)

Hi kohane , install pantheon on manjaro is not hard  :)  ... but you have to switch into unstable branch to use because pantheon is in development release and yes is subject at possible broken  .
If ok for you i explain more .. ( but you can view my profile into github https://github.com/manjaro/manjaro-tools-iso-profiles/tree/master/pantheon )

Ah, unstable...
Well.... I don't know...
My problem is that Cinnamon is failing too much and Mate isn't exactly what I want. I thought of trying a new desktop. But I'm not sure if it's a good idea for me to switch to unstable right now.

BTW, thank you for your quick reply!!  :D

If stability is what you are after, I would go with the official xfce edition. Xfce is known for stability and customizability, and as official edition it receives more developement resources and more user feedback than other editions.

You can easily tweak gnome to look like pantheon (or even better!). There is even slingshot launcher on pantheon so you actually can create pantheon out of gnome.

I tried that myself and tweaked gnome behaves in exactly the same way as pantheon, even with transparent bar.
Perk of using gnome instead pantheon is that gnome is more configurable then pantheon (with help of addons). Con is that gnome is more resources hungry and a bit slower then pantheon (which is lighter then gnome). On the other hand gnome is stable and reliable, pantheon is not...
