MX Linux 19.2 KDE Edition, the first officially supported MX Linux flavor using the KDE Plasma desktop environment is now available for the download.
A couple months ago, MX Linux 19.2 was released. It’s a really solid operating system that has been growing in popularity lately. MX Linux uses Xfce for its desktop environment. While Xfce isn’t bad, it isn’t the most attractive Desktop Envirement. Therefore, it is designed with a bigger emphasis on being lightweight as opposed to having a lot of eye candy. Well, for those that love MX Linux 19.2 but want a more beautiful user interface, there is a great news – a KDE Edition of the operating system is now available for download.
Above all, the team has announced the first officially supported Debian-based MX/antiX family distribution featuring KDE Plasma 5.14.5. In addition, the new MX Linux 19.2 KDE is a 64-bit only version with Advanced Hardware Support (AHS) enabled.
“This will be first officially supported MX/antiX family ISO utilizing the KDE/plasma desktop since the halting of the predecessor MEPIS project in 2013. MX-19.2 KDE includes the usual MX tools, antiX-live-usb-system, and snapshot technology that our users have come to expect from our standard flagship Xfce releases. Adding KDE/plasma to the existing Xfce/MX-fluxbox desktops will provide for a wider range user needs and wants.”
