File conflicts

There is a fair chance you will get file conflicts with this approach. When you do please resolve the conflicting files manually.

The conflict will most likely be the package manjaro-openbox-minimal-config as that package contains files which might already be present in your system.

The best approach is to first install the config package and resolving the conflicts. You can then proceed to install the package list.
