GALPon MiniNo

Last Update: 2019-04-11 06:22 UTC


GALPon MiniNo is a lightweight, Debian-based distribution designed for PCs that are 10 years old (or more), though it's also perfectly usable on modern computers and netbooks. It contains a carefully tuned selection of applications that try to maintain a balance between features, ease of use and speed. IceWM with ROX-Filer and PCManFM provides the desktop. The distribution has full support for three languages (English, Galician and Spanish) and it also comes with "magic icons" - a set of tools that automate repetitive or system tasks (e.g. rotate or resize hundreds of digital images, convert audio or video files into other formats or burn an audio CD with a simple drag & drop).

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 168 (51), 6 months: 155 (58), 3 months: 178 (43), 4 weeks: 149 (48), 1 week: 139 (50)

Average visitor rating: 9.17/10 from 6 review(s).

Absolutely great, all the way.

Only disappointment is the very limited language selection which makes it impossible for me to keep it in the old netbook I tried it for.

It is a shared netbook and I just can't impose English or Spanish to its other users.

I rated it 10 nevertheless, but this should be addressed to, honestly.

Ciao from Italy

Nice lightweight Debian-based distro. It was fast and pretty simple. Persistence didn't work in the live-medium version, which is a serious limitation. There's a feature to toggle the icon for network connections in an unusual place. After I found it I was able to connect to my wifi no problem. I really like LXDE. It is quick and configurable. There is the option to switch to Gnome3 for those who prefer it. On LXDE I was unable to find any way to add or modify keyboard shortcuts (a bad fault). There are 3 or 4 menu items having to do with keyboards. Only one allowed me to do what I wanted. Includes a good software selection, but also Synaptic and Gdebi installer if you want more or different. Overall pretty good, tho' I didn't do an install and a thorough test.

For a -small- distro it has all you really need.
Although it is basically spanish, no need to learn the language, it works ok in english if you've got a basic linux knowledge.
Best choice for old low ram computers.
