GoblinX

GoblinXAbout GoblinX

GoblinX is a bootable live CD distribution based on Slackware Linux. The primary goal for GoblinX is to create a more pleasant and functional desktop, standardising all icons and themes to make it easy for novice users to learn about available applications.

The GoblinX is available in three different live CD varieties: the common live CD, GoblinX Standard, a smaller edition called GoblinX Mini and a professional edition, GoblinX Premium. Support is included for 5 languages: French, Portugese, Spanish, German and English. It also features a modular system, enabling applications to be added to the live CD.

The Premium Edition contains languages, libraries, files and applications used to compile other programs from source code, contains several more applications to everyday use and games for your entertainment, also contains more drivers and packages needed to improve hardware support, like sane, gimp-print, hpjis, ndiswrapper, slmodem and more.

GoblinX offers a choice of KDE, Xfce or Enlightenment as desktop environments. WindowMaker or Fluxbox are available as window managers.
