Manjaro on my Surface Go
Install and run Manjaro on a Microsoft Surface Go
This mostly just contains personal notes and references to get the Manjaro i3 flavor running.
This largely follows the steps in my ‘Manjaro on a MBP’ https://jeroenbourgois.be/notes/manjaro-mbp/ post, only the differences are highlighted here.
Because I could not get the bootloader menu to work properly and I did not need Windows at all, I decided to erase it all together and just do a clean install of Manjaro. To do so, like on the MBP, I just used the live usb to do the installation.

Thanks to the wonderfull
linux-surface repo, you can fix the WiFi and other minor issues:
- download / clone the (repo)[https://github.com/jakeday/linux-surface] to a usb disk
- copy the files to your surface
sudo sh setup.sh
Just recently, afer a big
sudo pacman -Syu operation, I had to run this again. For convenience, keep the files around somewhere in you home directory.
