What is Auxtral?

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

Of course. Auxtral provides Long Term Support (LTS) releases that are supported for a lifetime of 5 years.

- 2 GB of RAM (4 GB is recommended for comfortable use).

- 20 GB of disk space (100 GB recommended)

- 1360 x 768 resolution (1920 x 1080 recommended)


Can I use Snap and Flatpxck in Auxtral?

Yes, you can use them. But Auxtral does not bring 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

Does Auxtral have UEFI support?

- Yes, from Debian (Bullseye) 11.2 and Auxtral (Alsephina) 3.2 support UEFI


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 in terms of pre-installed applications, for example, the "text editor" Pluma, is typical of the "Mate" environment, but it comes as default in all the Auxtral versions. This distro does not come pre-installed with any "document viewer", 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.


Can I install Auxtral on the computers I sell to my clients?

- Yeah. but Auxtral (just like Debian) doesn't have an OEM-mode installer, which doesn't mean you can.


Can I use the Auxtral logo and/or screenshots?

- Yeah. You may 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 portray yourself as part of Auxtral and do not allow people to assume that you are a part of Auxtral. 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, nor are any non-free software packages.subject to ownership


And what is Auxtral's position on proprietary or closed source software?

- Auxtral does not support any political or ideological stance against any software program, against its creator or publisher, regardless of the license they use.

Understanding that all the software included in Auxtral's ISOs is "free software", free and open source, and that I believe in this software as a wonderful tool and a smart choice available to everyone, I in no way consider that "free software" should be a limitation.

It is great to share code, to give credit to the technology that free software makes available, to profess that people help each other, to allow others to build on what we do, and to facilitate progress in general. But always respecting the freedom of choice of each and every person.
