ArchEX (Arch Linux) Live with Deepin 20.9, LXQt 1.3, kernel 6.4.9.arch1-1 and Calamares Installer 3.2.62 :: Build 230812

NEWS about ArchEX 230812
A new version of ArchEX (Arch Linux Live) is ready! In this new version, which I call ArchEX 2023, I have added the Deepin 20.9 (latest) Desktop Environment (DE). Deepin DE (made in China!) is devoted to providing a beautiful, easy to use, safe and reliable system for global users. I came to like Deepin DE very much when I installed it in ExTiX 23.4. So I thought why not install Deepin DE also in ArchEX? Furthermore I have added the  LXQt 1.3 (latest) Desktop Environment. You can choose the one you want at LightDM’s Login screen.

Known “bugs” or errors in this ArchEX Build
I’ve kept my “old” ArchEX version 220905 on the server since ArchEX Build 230812 have some “bugs” i.e.:
1) You can’t change wallpaper in Deepin. That is a known bug in Arch Linux and all distros based on Arch Linux.
2) When installing ArchEX to hard drive using Calamares Installer you’ll have to format the install partition in another Linux system in advance. If you let Calamares format you will get filesystem errors and therefore ArchEX won’t boot. Watch this screenshot…
So using Calamares it shall look like this screenshot shows.
NOTE: When installing ArchEX in VirtualBox you don’t have to worry about filesystem errors (for some unknown reason).
3) It can be difficult to configure a WiFi connection. To be able to use a WiFi connection you may have to unload and load the correct kernel module.
For example athk10_pci, iwlwifi or wl. Example commands:
$ sudo modprobe -r ath10k_pci
$ sudo modprobe ath10k_pci
Check which kernel module to load with the command: lspci
Also watch this screenshot…
Aside from the above mentioned bugs ArchEX Build 230812 works very well both live and from hard drive.

Study all installed packages in ArchEX 2023 with Deepin and LXQt.

WHO should run Arch Linux?

My answer: The system fits the “advanced” Linux user/enthusiast, who would be willing to run an occasional command from time to time.

BENEFITS of ArchEX/Arch Linux
“Cutting Edge”-software and speed. You will for example always run the latest kernel if you upgrade ArchEX/Arch (for example) every month.

ArchEX (Arch Linux) “Mini” with LXQt 1.3, all Arch Linux installation scripts, Calamares, Yay, VirtualBox Guest Additions and kernel 6.4.3 (latest) :: Build 230719

NEWS ABOUT ArchEX 230719
I’ve made a new extra “Mini” version of ArchEX. It has four advantages compared with ArchEX Build 220905.

A) This ArchEX build is smaller. The ISO file is “only” of 2330 MB compered with Build 220905 which is of 4010 MB. This is of importance since ArchEX can run very fast live from RAM. So your computer needs lesser RAM to run Build 230719. Should be enough with 2 GB. NOTE: I was hoping to make the ISO file even smaller, but that was impossible since the Calamares Installer and Yay has a lot of dependencies.

B) ArchEX Build 230719 has all Arch Linux original installation scripts, which means that you can use this build to install Arch Linux “the Arch way” following the Installation Guide. Or you can just follow my example here. You can have my instructions up in Firefox while installing as this screenshot shows. When installing from Arch Linux official live DVD you’ll have to do it in console mode. (Could be tricky).

C) If you install Arch Linux (or ArchEX using Calamares) in VirtualBox or Qemu you can do it in full screen. VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed in ArchEX Build 230719 (and in Build 220905). Watch this screenshot. In Qemu you can just choose the screen resolution you want.

D) ArchEX Build 230719 uses kernel 6.4.3 (latest) and has support for more wireless cards. Kernel modules ath10k and wl are loaded also when running ArchEX live, which obviously means a lot.

Study all installed packages in Build 230719…

SCREENSHOTS

1. ArchEX Mini Desktop for user exton
2. ArchEX Mini Desktop for root
3. ArchEX Mini installing LibreOffice while running live
4. Installing Arch Linux the Arch way

MeX 64 bit Linux based on Debian Sid and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with Ubuntu Desktop (Gnome 42.5) and Kodi 20.2 Nexus :: Build 230704

NEWS/CHANGES 230704
I’ve uploaded a new version of MeX, in which I’ve included Kodi Nexus 20.2 – latest version, released 230702. Kodi is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS, tvOS and Android. It is designed around a “10-foot user interface” for use with televisions and remote controls. Kodi runs very well in MeX. On a web site called FireStickTricks you can find instructions how to install 23 (?!) extra Kodi Builds with their own repositories and skins. The article is called Best Kodi Builds July 2023. I’ve tried Doomzday today. Works very well. Otherwise MeX version 230704 works in the same way as previous versions.

NEWS/CHANGES 230704
Mex Linux is no longer based on Linux Mint. MeX Build 230704 is based only on Debian Sid and Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish. I have replaced the original kernel (5.15) with “my” special kernel 6.4.0-amd64-exton. All installed packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 230704. This version of MeX uses the Ubuntu Desktop Minimal. I.e. Gnome 42.5 and Kodi 20.2. You can run Kodi “windowed” while logged in to Gnome. Alternatively you can start Kodi directly from the GDM3 login screen. The very nice icon theme Papirus is installed and used.

SCREENSHOTS

MX Linux 23 BETA 2 Exton Remix 64bit with KDE and Android Studio :: Build 230620

ABOUT my MX Linux 23 BETA 2 Remix 230620
MX Linux (based on Debian) is by far the most popular Linux system in the world according to DistroWatch.com. I tested MX Linux a few years ago and noticed immediately that one can change the MX system and create a new ISO with MX Snapshot. My first MX Linux Remix is from 191018. And my second remix was ready 220524.

MX Linux 23 BETA 2
My first remix was based on MX Linux 18.3 (released in May 2019). MX Linux 23 BETA 2 Libretto was released on June 16, 2023. It is based on Debian 12 (Stable/Bookworm). MX uses Debian’s standard kernel 6.1. You won’t notice that MX 23 is a BETA version. Everything just works.

My changes of the original MX Linux 23 system
1. All packages have been upgraded to the latest version as of 230620. Study the full package LIST.
2. I have installed Android Studio Flamingo.  With it you can run a “variety of Android devices”. You can also create applications (apps) and test run them in Android Studio. NOTE: You can use Android Studio while running MX Linux live (i.e. from a USB stick or a DVD), but not in VirtualBox or VMware. In VirtualBox you will get an error message saying Your cpu does not support required features (vt-x or svm) screenshot. That’s because VirtualBox as of yet does NOT support nested virtualization.
3. Some cosmetic changes. I.e. nice wallpapers.

Installation to a USB stick
Please note that you can only use Rufus 4.1 in Windows for USB installations. If you use other software the stick won’t be made bootable. One exception: You can without problems use Ventoy (instead of Rufus).

Performance
Everything in my remix works very well. MX Linux works on new and old computers. I can mention that I could run (and install) my MX remix without problems on my 18 year old laptop Acer Aspire 5102WLMi. You can of course make your own MX Linux Remix with my remix as “groundwork”. The whole process will only take about 5 minutes! Also in VirtualBox. Watch this screenshot showing how it looks when MX Snapshot has started.

Login
Login to the KDE Desktop as user with password live.

Hard drive installations
Use MX Installer. It works very well. Watch a YouTube Video about it. And watch this screenshot…

Create your own MX Linux Remix
Use MX Snapshot. It is very easy to do. The whole process will only take about 5 minutes! Also in VirtualBox. Watch this screenshot showing how it looks when MX Snapshot has started.

SCREENSHOTS
1. Running in VMware
2. MX Installer has started
3. Android Studio running and installing an Android image
4. Android Studio running an Android image with Google Play Store

Watch a YouTube Video about my MX Linux Remix v. 220524…

DOWNLOAD
The ISO can be downloaded from the Swedish Linux Society.

Linux For All (LFA) Build 230608 with Gnome 44
is a simple remaster of Ubuntu 23.04, code-named Lunar Lobster. It’s a total rebuild. I.e. nothing is left of the old LFA system. NOTE: Ubuntu 23.04 will be supported (only) until January 2024. To be able to upgrade Gnome from version 42.4 to 44 I first had to upgrade Ubuntu from version 22.04 (supported until April 2027) to 23.04.

NEWS ABOUT LFA Build 230608

1. All packages the ordinary Linux user can wish for are pre-installed. Study the full packages list.
2. Kernel 6.4.0-rc4-amd64-exton is used. You can of course switch to Ubuntu’s original kernel if you prefer that.
3. The Desktop environment is Gnome 44. (Ubuntu’s original DE).
4. The main Web Browser is Firefox. So you can watch Netflix!
5. I have included Refracta tools (Refracta Snapshot) to make it possible for you to create your own installable Ubuntu 23.04 Live System once you have installed LFA to hard drive.
6. You can run LFA fast in RAM. Use boot alternative 2 Load to RAM – see below.
7. VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed , which means (among other things) that you can run LFA in VirtualBox in full screen. Watch this screenshot.

What’s new in kernel 6.4?

SCREENSHOTS

Screenshot 1 – Running Samba to reach Windows computers
Screenshot 2 – Refracta Installer has ended
Screenshot 3 – Running LFA in VMware

ExTiX 23.5-2 – “The Ultimate Linux System” – based on Ubuntu 23.04 with LXQt 1.3, Refracta Snapshot and kernel 6.3.1-amd64-exton :: Build 230530

ExTiX 23.5-2 LXQt – Build 230530
I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 23.5-2 LXQt Live System. (The previous LXQt version was 22.8 from 220814). ExTiX 23.5-2 is based on Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar Lobster)! Ubuntu 23.04 will be supported (only) until January 2024. To be able to upgrade LXQt from version 0.17 to 1.3 I first had to upgrade Ubuntu from version 22.04 (supported until April 2027) to 23.04. The best thing with ExTiX 23.5-2 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. So easy that a ten year child can do it! One other very good thing with this version of ExTiX is that it is quite light. The ISO file is of only 2050 MB, which means that you can run the system super fast from RAM. When the boot process is ready you can eject the DVD or USB stick. Use Boot alternative 3 or Advanced options… >> load to RAM.

ABOUT
ExTiX 23.5-2
LXQt System 64 bit is based on Debian Sid and Ubuntu 23.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Gnome. After removing Gnome I have installed LXQt 1.3 (latest version, released 230415). LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects: A lightweight, modular, blazing-fast and user-friendly desktop environment. NOTE: This ExTiX LXQt Build is for installation to UEFI-enabled computers. You shall use Refracta Installer for that.

SCREENSHOTS
1. ExTiX LXQt – root’s Desktop
2. ExTiX LXQt – user’s Desktop
3. ExTiX 23.5-2 running in full screen in VirtualBox

SlackEX 15.0 (Slackware 15.0) Live System with KDE Plasma 5.27.5 (latest), Refracta Snapshot and kernel 6.3.1-amd64-exton :: Build 230525

Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. In comparison with for example Ubuntu and Linux Mint, many people believe that Slackware is “difficult”. Any novice can quickly learn to use Ubuntu they say. My remasters of Slackware Current (15.0), which I call SlackEX 15.0 Current 64 bit Linux Live DVD, are however just as easy to use as Ubuntu and/or Linux Mint. Some tend to complain that the Program Management in Slackware is awkward. That was perhaps earlier the case, but not anymore.

NEWS ABOUT SlackEX 15.0 stable Build 230525 with KDE Plasma 5.27.5 (latest) as DE
A new extra version of SlackEX is ready. It is based on Slackware 15.0 stable released 220203. In this version I’ve installed KDE Plasma 5.27.5 (latest version released 230509). Plasma 5.27 is a LTS (Long Term Support) version. Kernel 6.3.1-amd64-exton is used. The most important package installed is Refracta Snapshot. With that you can build your own Slackware distribution with Plasma 5.27.5. KDE is one of Slackware’s official Desktop Environments. The other one is Xfce4. NOTE1: You can run SlackEX Build 230525 as the normal user user or as root. The password for root is root. The password for user is live. NOTE2: You can run SlackEX Build 230525 on UEFI and non-Uefi computers. You can also run SlackEX live super fast from RAM. NOTE3: If you want to run SlackEX as root you shall choose “Other” using SDDM Login Manager. The password for root is root.
