Nitrux is made with love by people like you.
Nitrux is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu suitable for laptops and desktop computers. Nitrux provides all the benefits of the Ubuntu operating system combined with a focus on portable, distributable application formats like AppImages. Nitrux uses the development branch of Ubuntu as a basis using only the core system and then slowly building up to ensure a clean user experience. Nitrux is suitable for newcomers to Linux as well as *nix experienced users. Nitrux uses KDE Plasma 5 and KDE Applications, we also use our in-house software suite Nomad Desktop adding to the user experience.

What could I use Nitrux for?
Well — just about anything! It can perform many functions that any computer could use. Surf the internet, word process, email, spreadsheets, listen to music, watch movies, chat, games, coding, photo editing, content creation, whatever you want!.

Everything you need to get started.
Nitrux is a complete Operating System that ships the essential apps and services for the daily use: office applications, PDF reader, image editor,
music and video players, etc. Nitrux ships with select KDE Applications by default along our own custom applications. KDE Applications are a set
of applications and supporting libraries that are designed for KDE Plasma 5. We also include non-KDE or Qt applications like Chromium and ONLYOFFICE
that together create a friendly user experience.

Available out-of-the-box
Nitrux includes a selection of applications carefully picked to perform the best when using your computer:

- Dolphin, a file manager.
- Kate, advanced text editor.
- Ark, archiving tool.
- Konsole, a terminal emulator.
- Chromium, web browser.
- Babe, music player.
- VLC, multimedia player.
- LibreOffice, open source office suite.

Explore a universe of apps in Nitrux.
The Nomad Software Center is a free application that provides Linux users with a modern and easy way to manage the software installed on their open
source operating systems. It has been specifically engineered to run on top of the Qt desktop environments. It is your new one stop shop for all
things app related. Designed from the ground up to be easily handled by users as well as easily integrated by distributions. Its features allow
you to search, install and manage and AppImages. AppImages are faster to install, easier to create and safer to run.
AppImages aim to work on any distribution or device, from IoT devices to servers, desktops to mobile devices.

The Nomad Software Center is all about new app delivery technologies and its focus is to empower the user to browse, test, install apps and update
their installation without fear of disastrous results. Installing an application is easy! When you’ve found the application that you want, simply click
the “Install” button in the and it will begin to download and install. With this software, you will be able to view installed applications, remove
them, view available updates for installed applications, find and install new apps.

Securing your desktop and workstation.
Nomad Firewall is a firewall tool for Linux uses the Qt toolkit. You can use the wizard to create a basic firewall, then streamline it further using the dynamic rules. You can open and close ports with a few clicks, or monitor your services giving access only to a select few. Nomad Firewall is an open source application that provides users with a graphical user interface (GUI) for the ufw (Uncomplicated Firewall)/iptables command-line interface, which lets users manage Linux kernel’s packet filtering system.
Key features include the ability to use profiles, quickly enable or disable the firewall, easily set incoming and outgoing rules, see which applications are listening on which ports, as well as to effortlessly add or remove rules. With a single click of a button, users will be able to enable or disable the firewall as well as to set incoming and outgoing rules (Allow, Deny, Reject). It is also possible to easily create rules as well as to add simple or advanced firewall rules, where you can set default policy, category, subcategory, and application.
Under the hood, the software is written entirely in the C++ programming language. However, its graphical user interface is written using the QML GUI toolkit. It is available as a KCM for the Plasma 5 desktop environment.

The Wait Is Finally Over.

What's new:
- The second release of Nitrux 1.1.x series.
- Update kernel to mainline version 4.19.5.

- Added utilities and scripts for power management.
- Added VDPAU driver with OpenGL/VAAPI backend.
- Added Bluetooth module for PulseAudio sound server.

---- Show a warning if there are no images available for booting.
---- Don't prevent the user from deploying images that are already deployed.
---- Reordered arguments for find command.

- Updated Luv icon theme.
- Updated Welcome Wizard.
- Updated NVIDIA binary Xorg driver to 415.18.
- Added NVIDIA driver support binaries, NVIDIA kernel source, NVIDIA DKMS, NVIDIA OpenGL-based Inband Frame Readback runtime library, NVIDIA OpenGL/GLX/EGL/GLES GLVND libraries and Vulkan ICD, NVIDIA OpenGL-based Framebuffer Capture runtime library, NVENC Video Encoding runtime library, NVIDIA Video Decoding runtime libraries, NVIDIA libcompute, NVIDIA binary OpenGL/GLX configuration library,

Known issues:
- Included VLC AppImage does not include an icon.

Notes:
- Our ISO is a standard ISO-9660 bootable image. However, our ISO dramatically differs from other conventional Linux ISO files in that ours is not a hybrid-ISO image and this means that the ONLY way to use Nitrux is deploying the ISO image using znx. We DO NOT recommend that you flash the ISO raw to a storage device AT ALL, please use znx.
- Nitrux, by default, uses OpenGL (3.1) acceleration as the rendering backend, this is to provide users of a great experience when they are running the distribution on their computers. We do recommend that in this case, testers use XRender instead. We also suggest that users don't attempt to install the guest additions from the VirtualBox Guest ISO or install the package using APT and this is because the Linux kernel since version 4.16 does already include the video driver and related modules.

Latest image won't boot with Parallels either. Guys, this is a major disaster for a new distro. Did you not even test the ISO? It reflects very badly on the possible QC of the complete distro.

Yes, we test the ISO. As we have mentioned continuously, our ISO is NOT a hybrid ISO file like every other Linux distributions do. To boot our ISO in real hardware first, you need an EFI capable device; then you need to use znx to deploy it. Like it was mentioned in the release article on our blog, to use it in a virtual machine you have to enable EFI in the virtual machine configuration. In VirtualBox, it is a checkbox under System, and in Parallels, you have to specify the boot flag vm.bios.efi=1 (this is mentioned in the Parallels support pages).

The user interface is clean and very professional. The distro is fast and light, with a very small memory and cpu footprint. My favorite distro so far.
