MeX Linux 13.10 64 bit with four Desktop environments – stable version

MeX logoThe system is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.10 – codenamed Saucy Salamander, released 20131017. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.1 (Ubuntu). I have replaced Unity with KDE 4.11.2, Gnome 3.8.4, Gnome Fallback (Classic) 3.8.4 (which makes Cinnamon expendable) and Razor-qt 0.5.2. Everyone can on the spot (during live operation) compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.

Program content etc
Among many other programs LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Firefox, Brasero, Vlc, GParted, Gimp and win32 codecs. In addition, java, flash and all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of October 19, 2013. See a complete list of all installed packages.

One thought on “MeX Linux 13.10 64 bit with four Desktop environments – stable version

  1. I would like to make the following clarifications.

    1. My Ubuntu remasters (MeX, ExTiX, LFA and ExLight ) use Ubuntu’s official repositories only.

    2. Anyone who does not like “my” Ubuntu kernels (for example 3.11.0 -7- exton in MeX ) can naturally (after a hard disk installation) install Ubuntu’s Official kernel. For example 3.11.0 -12 -generic in MeX 13.10. I also must say the my Ubuntu kernels are compiled in exactly the same way as Ubuntu’s Official kernels. (If they were not, they would not work in a Ubuntu/Debian system).

    3. In MeX, ExTiX and ExLight you’ll have to to create your own users after a hard drive installation. It is done with the command sudo adduser MyUser. If you want to delete the live account, it is done with the command sudo deluser live. Not so difficult. LFA, however, behaves exactly like Ubuntu original in the just mentioned respect. That’s because there is no root account in LFA. (As in all original Ubuntu systems ).

    I would also like to make clear the following: If an original Linux system can run on a particular computer without problems, my remaster of the original Linux system MUST run on the same computer. I alter namely never a Linux system for the worse in terms of auto configuration and hardware detection. It happens that I replace the kernel, but then always to a “better” kernel with even more “native” support for different types of hardware, etc. (As I thus have done ​​in version 131019 of MeX 13.10.
