First released in 2003, PCLinuxOS (also known as PCLOS) is a Linux variant for desktop and laptop computers. There are several special versions available for download, which come packaged with various desktop environments, including MATE, KDE, and LXDE.
PCLinuxOS implementation of the KDE control center is very easy to use. Change the settings, adjust the appearance and other operations are also very user-friendly. I still like to provide the installation wizard. Combined with the rolling release of the function, means that the release as long as the installation once, never have a second reload.
PCLinuxOS has a script called mylivecd, which allows the user to take a ‘snapshot’ of their current hard drive installation (all settings, applications, documents, etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD/USB image. This allows easy backup of a user’s data and also makes it easy to create your own custom liveCD/DVD/USB.
PCLinuxOS has additional support for over 85 languages through our simple Addlocale interface. It is safe and secure. You never have to worry about viruses, adware, malware or trojans infecting your computer with PCLinuxOS.
Changelog PCLinuxOS 2019.09
The KDE versions both full and the minimalistic Darkstar contain kernel 5.2.15 plus a fully updated KDE Plasma desktop. Plasma desktop 5.16.5, Plasma Applications 19.08.1 and Plasma Frameworks 5.62.
The Mate Desktop was refreshed with kernel 5.2.15 and the applications and libraries were updated to their most recent stable versions from the previous release.
The Xfce Desktop was tweaked and now uses the Whisker menu by default. A login sound was added and the applications were updated along with some minor bug fixes.
In addition all ISOs now include the Nvidia 430.50 driver and will be used instead of the nouveau driver if your video card supports it. Hardware detection scripts were updated to provide better support for video cards that can use the Nvidia 430.50 driver. Pulseaudio has been updated to the stable 13.0 release. The Simple Update Notifier was reworked and now works for keeping you notified of system updates and the ability to update from the applet using apt-get. Small improvements were made to the Live media boot scripts. Vbox test media is also included on the installation media. This program allows you to quickly test an ISO on the fly or usbstick with various options without having to create a permanent VM in Virtualbox. Requires a valid Virtualbox installation. Thanks to the people involved for their contributions to this program.
