You can either create your very own ArcoLinuxB Plasma iso following this tutorial or download it from Sourceforge. (ArcoLinuxB-plasma-18.11.2.iso of 4.3 GB - games included)

2. ArcoLinuxD Plasma

You can also use the ArcoLinuxD iso and then install Plasma with the help of the github scripts. This will not be an exact copy of the iso.
