Manjaro users are more and more, being one of the most popular distributions among those based on Arch Linux. The Manjaro Community is also very large, something positive for users because the larger the community, the easier and more functional the distribution is (at least in general).
Today we bring you a very interesting and useful tool for the new Manjaro installations. This tool is called MPIS and is a post-installation script that makes it easier for us to install packages and complementary programs.
MPIS stands for Manjaro Post Install Script. It is a script created by the blog KernelPanic that has managed to be in the official repositories of the distribution. The merit has not been free, far from it because MPIS helps both the novice user and the expert user to develop Manjaro in our team. In addition, MPIS we helps to switch desktop and window manager, a change that is easier for novice users.
MPIS has a basic interface suitable for all users
MPIS we can achieve it as if we installed a package. Thus, we open the terminal and write the following to obtain it:
yaourt -S mpis
This will start the script installation and its dependencies. Once we have installed MPIS and its dependencies, we just have to type "MPIS" in the terminal to run the script.
MPIS has a basic menu that works by numbers. Thus, to install an Internet program, for example, we must first press the number corresponding to the Internet section and then we introduce the number of the program we want. It is not a pretty graphical interface but it is simple and efficient, suitable for any type of user.
Personally, it seems to me a very useful tool, although there is always the option of doing it by hand, the truth is that with MPIS the post-installation of Manjaro is faster Do not you think?
