Robolinux

Last Update: 2018-01-03 15:11 UTC


Robolinux is a user-friendly and intuitive operating system based on the latest stable release of Debian GNU/Linux. One of the project's more interesting features is the availability of a pre-configured virtual machine support pack with Windows XP or Windows 7 - a VirtualBox setup which allows the user to install and run the Windows operating system seamlessly alongside Robolinux. This is an optional add-on that must be downloaded from the project's online store.

Their website has very little help for the problems that people often encounter. I have installed Debian distros many times and one of the things that I often have to overcome for a successful install is the wifi. Due to the lack of nonfree software the wifi drivers and firmware is not included. The 8.10 LXDE install uses wicd instead of network manager and has different problems that standard Debian. I could probably sort out the problems if I wanted to spend hours of time but it is not worth it.

Widely unknown but simply the best distro out there. Everything works. Super fast. It is a breeze to install and recognizes everything. I am astounded that this is as well polished as it is. Some very useful apps and any that you do not have can be downloaded.

Installed, but without internet conection due to not recognizing DHCP or my modem. Distros that I have used that do recognize DHCP and modem are: Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin, Solus, and others.

So if those Distros install and recognize the internet connection, how is it that Robolinix is so stupid?
I don't really think it is a Robolinux problem, though. I have had the same problem with other Debian based Distros.

Not much help online, at least none that I can understand. As a casual user I kinda get lost when it involves the command line utility too much.
