Check your kernel was compiled with support. Check the kvm and virtio kernel modules are loaded. I needed to manually load the virtio module: To automatically load the virtio module at boot: Reboot and check again: Install qemu. I also installed qemu-launcher – a GUI front-end. Create a working directory: Create a virtual hard drive the the Windows installation. Prepare the installation medium. I inserted a Windows 7 installation DVD and created an ISO locally. To launch into the Windows installation: Once installed you don’t need to attach the ISO: Update and upgrade to Windows 10 😉 Resources https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QEMU https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/1fg3y9/guide_to_running_windows_7_in_qemu/

Spotify on Manjaro i3

Spotify is available from the AUR. Install To play local file you will need to also install ffmpeg. Issues For some (currently) unknown reason, launching Spotify crashes when I login. The only fix I have found so far is to change the scale factor from the default 1 to something else. You can do that by launching it at the command line: To make this permanent, edit /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop. Resources https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/spotify
