Hi Tulliana,

I like the way you introduce Archman and I was wishing to try Archman KDE Plasma 2019.02 – Code name: Duden Waterfalls – Stable Release but the iso does’nt work; md5 and sha1 are regular but it is unusable as in live as installed, desktop turns black, can’t open any app or opening in funny way showing half black window or disappearing, mouse funny too. I have been trying with DVD and USB stick (dd command). Test on computer desktop with Intel i5, 4GB DDR3 RAM, Nvidia GeForce 210 HDD GPT/UEFI.
Am not writing here to criticize, just letting you know my experience.

Best Regards

I couldn’t install the KDE version either. Same problems with flickering video and couldn’t do anything with the desktop. I saw boot errors about kernel modules not loading. I installed the XFCE version with no problems and installed plasma into it.
