ExTiX 16.3 LXQt DVD 64 bit – Build 160530 – with LXQt 0.10.0 and kernel 4.6.0-extix

extix-logo-black-white-bgI have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.3 LXQt Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.1).

ABOUT
ExTiX 16.3 LXQt DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.4 Jessie/Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 16.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.10.0. 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. All packages have been updated to the latest version by 160530.

The system language is ENGLISH.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.6.0-extix corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.6. It’s the latest stable kernel as of now. Ubuntu 16.04 uses kernel 4.4.

What’s new in kernel 4.6?

NVIDIA
I have pre-installed the Nvidia proprietary Graphics driver 361.45.11 in ExTiX LXQt. It has support for the following GPUs: Quadro K1200, Quadro M6000, GeForce 920M, GeForce 930A, GeForce 930M, GeForce 940M, GeForce GTX 950M, GeForce GTX 960M and GeForce GTX TITAN X. This driver will be used automatically if your card is supported.

  1. I have this on a USB stick and on my monitor is the ExTIX live boot menu.

    I click on that and get a graphical image across my monitor of a keyboard with
    a log-in window. I can not get past this log-in window. What is up with this ? If they want new people to try this distro, they need to make this a little less confusing.

    1. Just log in as the ordinary user extix with no password (i.e. just press ENTER when asked for a password). Or log in as root (superadmin) with password root.

  2. I tried this distro in a USB stick and super fast in comparison with others and i tried a lot.

    just two things:

    – There is no way of changing the appearance you need to install lxappearance for that, just wondering why wasn’t included by default?

    – KDE System Settings crashes: I tried a session with Kwin as WM and i also wanted to change the appearance, when i go to the appearance section it crashes so i’m stuck with breeze light theme :S
    Any way of solve this?

  3. Also note that adding PPAs gives error, for solve it:

    sudo nano /etc/lsb-release

    change DISTRIB_ID=ExTiX to DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu

  4. Hi there all!
    Where I can get the ISO file of ExTiX 16.3 LXQt DVD 64 bit – Build 160530 ?
