[SOLVED] Manjaro Persistence not working - Plurix - 02-21-2021

Hi, I'm using Ventoy on a 128 GB USB flash drive with Persistence not working at all with latest Manjaro.

Manjaro does not retain the changes made, like installing a new browser (GChrome), DT settings, saving files (like pdf) and so on.

Iso file is manjaro-kde-20.2-201207-linux59.iso.

Dat file is manjaro-kde-20.2-201207-linux59.dat

ventoy.json file is:

Code:
{
    "persistence" : [
       
        {
            "image": "/manjaro-kde-20.2-201207-linux59.iso",
            "backend": "/manjaro-kde-20.2-201207-linux59.dat"
        },
        {
            "image": "/MX-19.3_KDE_x64.iso",
            "backend": "/MX-19.3_KDE_x64.dat"
        }
       
    ]
}

It's working great with latest MX Linux, though.

Thanks for any feedback.

Ventoy persistence feature depends on that the distro supports persistence itself.
If the distro doesn't support persistence, then the persistence feature will not take effect.

As I known, manjaro ISO doen't support persistence itself.


Only the distros in the list are tested and guaranteed to work now.

I suggest you use vhd/vdi for manjaro https://www.ventoy.net/en/plugin_vtoyboot.html
It's a real manjaro enviroment like installed in a physical disk.

Ooops!... My foolish rookie fault due to oversight... Sorry man...

Actually vtoyboot plugin could be a better option... Will give it a try.

Thank you for reminding me of it.
