Ubuntu Kylin

Last Update: 2021-10-15 14:32 UTC


Ubuntu Kylin is an official Ubuntu flavour whose primary goal is to create a variant of Ubuntu optimised for Chinese users (using the Simplified Chinese writing system), although it also supports other languages. The default desktop is called UKUI (Ubuntu Kylin User Interface) which is based on MATE desktop and is developed with the Qt toolkit. UKUI strives to adhere to the friendly-and-simple design concept. The distribution also includes more than 20 applications developed in-house, including Kylin Assistant, Kylin Video, Kylin Screenshots and Software Center.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 88 (140), 6 months: 128 (71), 3 months: 170 (42), 4 weeks: 170 (40), 1 week: 153 (46)

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 "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.

I live in China and I work in China, so I want a Chinese based distro but this is terrible at the beginning of the installation!
1. I have wifi connection but it just didn't connect to my network for some reason.
2. When the installation was done, I thought that'd be easy to update but I was wrong, even the wired connection failed. I couldn't access to the internet at all!
3. Nvidia driver update also failed due to the network failure...
4. I changed my default input to English but it just kept my default input as Chinese... why?

anyway, I gave up. 2 points for the beauty of the desktop and wallpapers.
