Serbian GNU/Linux KDE Edition is an open source distribution of Linux based on the award winning Debian GNU/Linux operating system and primarily designed to be used by people from the Serbian Linux community. It uses the modern and traditional KDE desktop environment for its graphical session.

Distributed as 32 and 64-bit Live DVDs

This Debian-based operating system is distributed as two ISO images that can only be installed on a local disk drive using graphical or text-mode installers provided on the boot prompt, which also features a hardware detection utility. It includes software packages optimized only for the 32-bit hardware platform.

Boot options

While the boot menu is entirely in the Serbian language, the graphical and text-mode installers both default to the English language. As mentioned, using the graphical installer is your only choice to test this operating system.

Installing Serbian GNU/Linux

The installation process requires users to choose their preferred language, select their location, configure the keyboard, set a root (system administrator) password and new users, configure the clock, partition the disk, and install the bootloader.

Modern and traditional desktop environment

When the installation is over, the USB or CD media will be ejected and the computer restarted. At the login prompt, use the username and password set during the installation process. The Openbox window manager will be immediately loaded, providing users with a clean and lightweight graphical session that uses a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen.

Default applications

Default applications include the Iceweasel and Chromium web browsers, GIMP image editor, LibreOffice office suite, Clementine audio player, Kopete instant messenger, KTorrent BitTorrent client, VLC Media Player, K3b CD/DVD/BD burning software, SMPlayer video player, GNOME MPlayer media player, and Synaptic Package Manager.
