Table Notes and Explanations

  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

In Pakistan, Network address must be manually set to accept IPV4, and complately disable IPV6, so that Network does not drop, as mentioned in 1st comment. Author has provided an icon on desktop for the very purpose, which describes the whole process.

One of the best LXQT distro that works outside the box with Debian under the hood. It is also curated according to the taste of Pakistani people, most of whom will be coming from windows, and won't have powerful systems (hence LXQT is perfect). I am pretty impressed guys, great job. I hope it only gets better from here.
