Welcome to

PCLinuxOS Knowledge Base

"The place where you learn PCLinuxOS"

At present there are 253 pages and 16 articles here.

PCLinuxOS is about freedom, not just the free you get when you don't have to pay for something, but the kind of freedom to do what you will with it, and to use it in any manner or fashion that best fits your needs and intentions. It is truly by the people, of the people, for the people.

The Philosophy of PCLinuxOS is :

  • It is done when it is done
  • Use the best software available for the task, does not matter if it is Qt, GTK etc
  • Be focused on the desktop.

Currently this wiki is being restored from a backup. Until the work is complete you are likely to see missing links and outdated formatting. Please bear with us while we work on getting it back to proper shape.

News and announcements

  • 2019 Sep 17 : Tex and crew has announced the release of updated installation media for PCLinuxOS. The new media carries the version number 2019.09 and contains a fully updated system as of September 15 2019. The forum post with discussion can be found here.

    Download links are in the Get PCLinuxOS section on right hand side.

    The KDE versions both full and the minimalistic Darkstar contain kernel 5.2.15 plus a fully updated KDE Plasma desktop.
    Plasma desktop 5.16.5, Plasma Applications 19.08.1 and Plasma Frameworks 5.62.

    The Mate Desktop was refreshed with kernel 5.2.15 and the applications and libraries were updated to their most recent stable versions from the previous release.

    The Xfce Desktop was tweaked and now uses the Whisker menu by default. A login sound was added and the applications were updated along with some minor bug fixes.

    In addition all ISOs now include the Nvidia 430.50 driver and will be used instead of the nouveau driver if your video card supports it. Hardware detection scripts were updated to provide better support for video cards that can use the Nvidia 430.50 driver. Pulseaudio has been updated to the stable 13.0 release. The Simple Update Notifier was reworked and now works for keeping you notified of system updates and the ability to update from the applet using apt-get. Small improvements were made to the Live media boot scripts. Vbox test media is also included on the installation media. This program allows you to quickly test an ISO on the fly or usbstick with various options without having to create a permanent VM in Virtualbox. Requires a valid Virtualbox installation. Thanks to the people involved for their contributions to this program.
