Welcome to

PCLinuxOS Knowledge Base

"The place where you learn PCLinuxOS"

At present there are 306 pages and 22 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 Until the work is complete you are likely to see missing links and outdated formatting.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

  • 2018 Jul 24 : Work on restoring the Main Page has begun in earnest. Old design is being copied manually from archives and restored delicately keeping as much formatting as possible.
    Some details may look different.

Table of contents

PCLinuxOS (abbreviated pclos) is a Linux distribution written from bottom to top with you, the new Linux user, in mind.

Introduction

Software

HowTo pages

The HowTo section contains many pointed and in-detail articles addressing a single issue. For example :

Editing the Wiki

You need to have an account with us and logged in before you can edit this wiki. Checkout PCLinuxOS Wiki:Syntax before editing this wiki. Feel free to add to this wiki, however, keep the content appropriate and useful. This is not the place to report bugs or to request help. You can try the wiki syntax in the Sandbox, the test page.

In case you still find it difficult to understand and follow the syntax, do not fear. We have a special Content dump page where you can just enter the content you know will be useful without worrying about formatting. Someone will come along and do the job for you later.
