Quickly and easily create your own arch-based GNU/Linux-distribution.

ArchMaker is a program that generates scripts which then can generate an iso-file of your own distribution.

You just have to select the programs you want to install, an /etc/skel-folder, enter some information and select a slideshow. It uses archiso to generate the ISO-file and Calamares as the installer.


  • Arch Linux (64 bit) - base-devel
  • git
  • QT5
  • archiso (runtime)
  • xterm (runtime)



To get the dependencies:

sudo pacman -S base-devel git qt5-base archiso xterm

Now you need to clone the Github-Repository:

git clone && cd archmaker

After that you can compile ArchMaker:

mkdir build && cd build
qmake ..
sudo make install

This will install the .desktop file into /usr/share/applications/

From the AUR (outdated)

To build the package from the AUR, it is recommended to use an AUR-Helper (e.g. yaourt, pacaur). Then you can run:

yaourt -S archmaker


pacaur -S archmaker

Sharing your distro

When you have generated your iso, you can upload it (anywhere) and share the link at the gallery.
