Until I am able to get nemesis to function for plasma. Plasma-kde5: runs well and smoothly under manjaro with my old MSI-340. This is really surprising. :D

I have the base kde5 (with plasma) running in around a 150Mb module. Will upload the iso for you when I get chance. I think this will become my work desktop some day. Beautiful.
How do i become super user?

@brokenman:
Nice to you to provide it. However, now that I can do that in arch and in manjaro, my pleasure now would to be able to build from the non graphical environment, a functional xorg and a functional DE from nemesi.

As soon as you get it done, I will be happy to run this module of yours. :D
