Want help?

First try to help yourself

First use our websites to find an answer - or for desktop/application questions.
Use for building isos and for installing them. Carli or is for making a linux distribution from scratch.

Secondly check our forum on to see if a similar problem with a solution does not exist already before posting there.
Then broaden your search - Arch Linux - Manjaro - EndeavourOS - use all fhe forums available for Arch Linux based computer systems. Even Ubuntu websites have helped us in the past. It is all Linux.

Thirdly use the Arch Linux wiki Many of the issues are hardware related. None of us have your hardware. You have to assume you have to figure it out on your own and read what to do on the wiki. There are many pages on the wiki about specific laptops or hardware parts. Again broaden your search by including other Linux branches. There are more wikis on the net :

Fourthly check what are the latest videos we have put online and subscribe to the channel. General fixes (we all experience) will be posted on this channel.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
