Chakra is a version of Arch linux that has a gui installer and uses kde4 desktop .
it is not the best choice for a "new to linux " user
There is a it more to it than Arch ,but not by much .
most everything is going to be a manual set up .
You are in for a VERY steep and LONG learning curve expect it to take a week for the install and set up and about 6 months to a year learn it .
and not much in the way of automation
the place to start might be the wiki
then the Arch documentation ( it is VERY extensive )
- a good reference page ---
