Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I'm using it for a period of one week. I'm big fan of KDE. Before that I was using openSUSE 42.2 for a period of half year (probably more) so I can compare this two. The distro is very stable and polished. I've only one bug with sound card after resume from suspend, but it can be easily corrected. I'm sure that it's a matter of patching kernel.. It's much faster than openSUSE, especially time of booting (3x faster), it's comparable with Debian or ArchLinux. Chakra repos are integrated with KDE Settings, which is nice thing, and for orthodox kde users, there is option to disable gtk repos or lib32, etc. Multimedia, codecs, everything is out of the box, there is no need to add nothing else. Default browser is qupzilla is very usable and good (the newest version 2.1.2, to compare with last kubuntu 17.04, where only very old version is available), but it lacks some features like installing plugins. There is only adblock and a few othres. I've used it for a week because it's native KDE browser. It's quite good and fast, but.. I returned to firefox, because some features available which are important for me. Firefox is integrated with kde (also thunderbird) which is similar to openSUSE (for example in the last kubuntu it's not available even with additional repos and here it's out of the box).
Someone mentioned package manager.. Hmm, I'm using pacman. This octopi is similar to old Debian package manager synaptic, it's quite simple, and I've good felling about it, much better than about Kubuntu package manager.
And important.. I disabled baloo file indexer at the beginning with one click. In Kubuntu this was very hard, because after disabling it was still working, etc. I don't see also akonadi proceesses working in the background. To be truly, I don't need it also.
What more to say? I recommend this distro for these who need KDE-integrated apps. You don't have much choice here, so this is the distro for people who know what they want.

Flawless. The most polished distro I have ever used - and always becoming better. The only thing I would wish for is more updated development tools (gcc, clang), although I feel an update might be just around the corner.

Thanks to the devs.

Excellent distro, it just need some more polish and then it can be a really great distro.
I love the semi-rolling release model, it let me have the most recent application but without having to deal with the bugs tipical of a rolling-release as Arch.
Also the Plasma experience is very good and the package selections is not too big but at least the most used software (except for chrome) were there.
Some points (IMO) to make chakra really great:
-a nicer package manager (octopi works but is not so really nice....)
-the qt/gtk split (I don't quite understand it, gtk2 and 3 are in [gtk], but other gnome libs were in [core])
-the need of manual intervention (it is very annoying because you have to check the website at every update to check if there are interventions to do...)
-also having more packages would be great (as I said most used packages were there, but how do I install other packages? I saw there is a equivalent to AUR but I don't have the time to compile every application...)
-I installed tlp to increase battery duration, but some distro have it installed by default.
They are minor points but they make impossible to use Chakra for really inexperienced user.
