What is Auxtral?

Auxtral is a free and open operating system based on Debian GNU / Linux designed for use on desktop and laptop PCs.

 

Is Auxtral suitable for individuals?

Absolutely. Auxtral is designed to be comfortable and easy to use, but also powerful and configurable. Everything is done to improve the user experience.

Auxtral is one of the youngest desktop GNU / Linux distributions, which is why user feedback is very important and is used to improve the quality of Auxtral.

 

Is Auxtral suitable for companies?

Of course. Auxtral provides Long Term Support (LTS) versions that are supported for a 5-year life.

Can I use Snap and Flatpxck in Auxtral?

- Yes, you can use them. But Auxtral does not have them supported by default, for this you would have to do the following in the terminal as superuser:

# apt install flatpak gnome-software-plugin-flatpak

# flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Reboot the system.

For Snap:

# apt install snapd

# snap install core

Auxtral has support for UEFI?

- Yes, from the update of your Debian base to Bullseye 11.2 and the kernel update to version 5.10.0-10-amd64 Auxtal has UEFI support

 

If I choose a version with a certain desktop (DE), can I install applications from another environment?

- Yes, you can, what's more, that is part of Auxtral's philosophy regarding pre-installed applications, for example, the "text editor" Pluma, is typical of the "Mate" environment, but it comes as default in all versions of Auxtral. This distro does not have any "document viewer" pre-installed, for the simple reason that I don't know if you need it !!!; when you install one, and if you chose the version with DE Mate, that does not imply in any way that you have to use "Atril", you can perfectly install "Okular" (from KDE) if it suits you more. I will never understand the "purists" of a system like GNU / Linux.

 

Can I use Auxtral for commercial purposes?

- Yes absolutely

 

Can I sell Auxtral?

- Yes, you can sell Auxtral without permission. What you don't have to do is pretend to be part of Auxtral or let people understand that you are associated with Auxtral.

 

I can install Auxtral on the computers that I sell to my clients?

- Yes. but Auxtral (like Debian) does not have an OEM mode installer, which does not mean that you can.


Can I use the Auxtral logo and / or screenshots?

- Yes. You can use, promote and display Auxtral, screenshots of Auxtral or its logo in articles, magazines, websites, books, designs, movies or any document as long as you do not represent yourself as part of Auxtral and that you do not allow people to assume that you are associated with Auxtral.

Does Auxtral include proprietary drivers?

- No. Proprietary drivers such as ATI or Nvidia are easy to install, but they are not installed by default in Auxtral and neither are any non-free software packages.

 

And what about proprietary software or Windows itself?

-Auxtral does not support any political or ideological position against any software program or publisher, regardless of the license they use. All software included in the Auxtral ISOs is free and open source "free software". I believe in free software as a wonderful tool, a smart option available to everyone, but in no way do I understand that it should be a limitation. It is extraordinary to share code, give credit to the technology we use, profess that people help each other, allow others to build on what one does and facilitate progress in general, always within the respect of the "freedom" to choose of all and every single person.
