I installed and used Manjaro but I was unable to set up a software developmet environment. My base environment is listed in the following blog post.
Pacman did not know of many of the components I require for a sucessful software development platform. I wasted a few hours fighting Manjaro.
What good is a rolling update if the required base line for software development cannot be established?
I will update Kubuntu to the new Plasma 5.20.x and continue my software development with what works.
