How To Install Neofetch on Manjaro

Install Neofetch on Manjaro

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Neofetch on Manjaro. Neofetch is a powerful command-line system information tool written in bash 3.2+. It displays information about your operating system, software, and hardware in an aesthetic and visually pleasing way. The tool is primarily used for system screenshots, showing the information that others want to see. Neofetch supports almost 150 different operating systems, from Linux to Windows, and even more obscure operating systems like Minix, AIX, and Haiku.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Neofetch on a Manjaro Linux.


  • A server or desktop running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro, and other Arch-based distributions.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A stable internet connection is crucial for downloading and installing packages. Verify your connection before proceeding.
  • Access to a Manjaro Linux system with a non-root sudo user or root user.

Install Neofetch on Manjaro

Step 1. Before installing any new software, it’s a good practice to update your package database. This ensures that you’re installing the latest version of the software and that all dependencies are up to date. To update the package database, run the following command in the terminal:

sudo pacman -Syu

This command synchronizes your local package database with the remote repositories, ensuring that you have the latest information about software packages and their versions.

Step 2. Installing Neofetch on Manjaro.

Installing Neofetch on Manjaro Linux is a straightforward process. Open the terminal and type the following command:

sudo pacman -S neofetch

Step 3. Customization Options.

Neofetch allows a wide range of customizations. You can customize the ASCII image and system information displayed by Neofetch. The configuration file for Neofetch is located at ${HOME}/.config/neofetch/config.conf. You can edit this file to customize the information displayed by Neofetch.

To replace the default logo with a custom image, use the --source option and specify the image location. For example:

neofetch --source /path/to/image

To make Neofetch automatically launch when opening the terminal, add the following line to your .bashrc or .zshrc file:

echo neofetch >> /etc/bash.bashrc

Step 3. Using Neofetch on Manjaro.

After installation, you can run Neofetch by simply typing neofetch in the terminal. This will display a wealth of information about your system, including your operating system, kernel, uptime, installed packages, shell, resolution, desktop environment, window manager, theme, icons, CPU, GPU, and RAM.
