KaOS

Last Update: 2018-09-01 12:51 UTC


KaOS is a desktop Linux distribution that features the latest version of the KDE desktop environment, the Calligra office suite, and other popular software applications that use the Qt toolkit. It was inspired by Arch Linux, but the developers build their own packages which are available from in-house repositories. KaOS employs a rolling-release development model and is built exclusively for 64-bit computer systems.

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

KaOS is flawless for what it's trying to be... Lean, mean KDE Plasma DE, focusing on Qt apps and 64 bit software.
Getting Started: The Calemares installer is awesome, as always. The Croeso welcome app is super useful and a very nice touch. After a day, the right-hand panel became second nature and I'll never go back to any other position. I did, however swap-out the digital clock widget with the Event Calendar widget. Event clendar allows for 2 configurable lines (hh on line 1 and mm on line 2) and minimum height. This stacks the clock on the vertical, increases the size and makes the clock legible. It can also intergrate with you google calendar.
My epson printer install required the creation of a small text file. The Falkon web browser is fast and simple but cannot play all video formats from YouTube. The KaOS repos and KCP (KaOS Community Packages) have most of the software you'll need. If not you can always build a package from source and share it on KCP.
The -1 point in my rating is only due to the lack of 32 bit libraries. I don't use Skype and I'm not a gamer, but my son does play some games and uses my machine to do so. I think being able to install Steam out of the box would make KaOS the perfect distro. The documentation for the project is written very clear and very well organized. My hat's off to Demmm. He's done a lot of great work with the project. In the past month I've installed to hardware KaOS, then Fedora KDE, then KaOS, then Manjaro KDE, and back to KaOS. I think I'll just settle in for a while, enjoy what KaOS has to offer and try to contribute a little something to the KaOS community. :) Karl Schneider

Awesome KDE-Desktop!
Independent.
Fast!
Stable!
Clean and clear, not-bloated (but all you need as "home-office-user").
Very easy and quick install on my old iMac 27" (2009).
The best distribution after my "18-years-Linux-work" with several distributions!
