I would strongly recommend to install a newer 16.04 bspwm testing ISO, because very much development has been done for it.

I would not recommend the edition is however not for absolute n00bs without Linux experience, unless you are a bit of a computer masochist. ;)
The commands for installing are given on the wallpaper, sudo thus or sudo setup.

Actually, it seems that command for cli-installer has changed to
Code: [Select]
sudo cli-installerI very much recommend using cli-installer instead of thus if you have limited experience with linux, it is going to be much easier. Unless you want encryption, in that case thus can be easier.

If you have more specific questions, I'll be happy to help. Here are some quick tips:

- You should partition your hard drive woth gnome-disks that is included. That easier to do with gui than with command line
- use cli-installer. Easier and teaches you more. Steps are mostly self explanatory
- in disk preparation stage, go directly to set mount points part, because you already partitioned your drive with gnome-disks
- if you use the standard ext4 file system for root (usually best performance and least quirks), it is best to use nothing for swap. You can get automatically created swapfile later with hibernator. Just put everything in one partition and mount it as root ("/"). It is easiest that way. If you use uefi, that gives few extra hoops to jump though but well help you.
- if you use btrfs instead of ext4, ask eugen-b about. But I would really recommend ext4 at first if you are beginner.

sudo setup command worked for me yesterday, but sudo cli-installed for the time before as well.
For installation instructions for the CLI Installer follow Manjaro Wiki: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Installation_Guide_for_Experienced_Users_0.8.2#Starting_the_Stable_Installer
