ExTiX 15.3 with LXQt 0.9.0 and kernel 4.1.0-3-exton

extix-logo-black-white-bgI have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 15.3 LXQt Live DVD. (The previous version was 15.2).

ABOUT
ExTiX 15.3
LXQt DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.1 Jessie/Ubuntu 15.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed LXQt 0.9.0. LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects: A lightweight, modular, blazing-fast and user-friendly desktop environment. ExTiX LXQt is now more stable than ever. All packages have been upgraded to the latest version by 150808.

The system language is ENGLISH.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.1.0-3-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.1.3.

What’s new in kernel 4.1? (Linux 4.1 is a major update to the Linux kernel)

Nvidia Graphics driver
I have also installed Nvidia Graphics driver 352.30 in the LXQt version (150808). It has support for the following GPUs: Quadro K1200, Quadro M6000, GeForce 920M, GeForce 930A, GeForce 930M, GeForce 940M, GeForce GTX 950M, GeForce GTX 960M and GeForce GTX TITAN X. This driver will be used automatically if your card is supported. Note: One reason for me to abandon Gnome 3.14 (which was used in previous versions of ExTiX) is that Gnome 3.14 won’t run together with Nvidia’s proprietary drivers.
