Hi Community!

I want to ask if ArcoLinux offers a GUI Tool for choosing different and Switching Kernels between versions? like Manjaro Linux did!

Looks like you are after a GUI version of managing kernels.
https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Manjaro_Kernels

Then no, that'll add some level of extra complexity if for example this was added into ATT.

There are no good guis for it on AUR.

There is no need for it either.

sudo pacman -S linux
sudo pacman -S linux-lts
sudo pacman -S linux-zen
sudo pacman -S linux-hardened

and the xanmod kernels

linux-xanmod
linux-xanmod-lts
linux-xanmod-tt
linux-xanmod-anbox
linux-xanmod-rt

and their headers.

As simple as that.

You want an older kernel.

First install the current one. IF that one is not to your satisfaction for some reason ...

Then

sudo downgrade linux-lts for example

choose the one you want (I see you have 343 kernels to choose from and that is only linux-lts)

could not we simpler

There is REALLY REALLY no need for guis.
Nor should you need or require one.

Terminal is all you need. Stay independent from tools from distros.

This will work anywhere.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
