Nitrux is a Linux desktop distribution directly based on Ubuntu. It uses the Calamares installer and includes NX Desktop and NX Firewall on top of the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment and KDE Applications. Nitrux utilizes the Debian package manager (dpkg) and its extended set of tools APT (Advanced Packaging Tool) to manage the operating system and manage the software. Nitrux supports both Legacy BIOS and EFI 64-bit computers only, there’s no support for 32-bit.
We are pleased to announce the launch of Nitrux 1.1.5. This new version brings together the latest software updates, bug fixes, performance improvements, and ready-to-use hardware support.
Nitrux 1.1.5 is available for immediate download. To update, please check the Compendium for instructions.
- The fifth release of Nitrux 1.1.x series. - Update Linux kernel to mainline version 4.20.17. - Added Waterfox as the default browser. - Added Nvidia PRIME support. - Updated NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, 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 to 418.56. - Updated appimaged. - Removed AppImage Desktop Integration in favor of only using appimaged, now AppImage files that are located, moved or copied to ~/Applications will make use of firejail sandboxing.
- Welcome Wizard "Get New Software" and "Help and Support" buttons do not open, this is apparently a problem about the environment not detecting a default web browser.
- We have temporarily removed the NX Software Center and the Maui applications (Index, Buho, VVave, Nota, and Pix) to update them and fix a bug with Qt 5.12.0
