ArcoLinux, ArcoLinuxD and ArcoLinuxB is available for everyone for free. You can download it and make as many copies and installations you want. All you have to do is download the iso and burn it on a usb or dvd and boot from your media.

We recommend you install ArcoLinux on an SSD as the only operating system. Installing ArcoLinux along side your existing operating system(s) is possible. You decide.

Download faq
If you have a slow connection, you can always choose a nearby  server/mirror.


Then choose from what server you would like to download.

If you want to check if the download is not corrupted in any way then you can do so.

Checking the integrity of the file is done for a couple of reasons. The first is that it guarantees that the file is not corrupt by checking it against the value of sourceforge. The second is that it guarantees the file to be authentic and has not been tampered with by unknown third parties.

Performing the integrity check with md5sum or sha1sum is quite simple. Open a terminal or command prompt in the directory where the disk image is and type “md5sum” followed by the file name.

Go to Sourceforge and press on the button behind the file with “i” or information to know the security checks of the file, you want to download.

The numbers you have should match the ones on Sourceforge.

How to create bootable media
We recommend you use an usb to install ArcoLinux. Simply because you can reuse it and it is a faster medium than a dvd. If you are on ArcoLinux you have already Mintstick installed.

Go to the Xfce menu, accessories, USB image writer and burn the iso on an USB like shown in the video

Other linux distro’s can use Suse Image Writer which has a gui.

AUR – Antergos, Arch, Manjaro
.deb – Debian, Ubuntu, Mint
.rpm – openSUSE, Fedora

There is also Etcher that you can try out to burn an iso on Linux.

On Windows we can recommend ETCHER. Follow the tutorial to see where to get Etcher, download and install it. Then we get the iso and show you how to burn it to a usb.
You can also use UNetbootin as burner. This application will work on Linux, Windows. There is also Rufus you can try out.

If you need to burn the iso to a dvd then we can recommend Cdburnerxp and Imgburn for Windows.

We recommend you use etcher  on a mac. That is working perfectly.

You can download it from here :
