After a lengthy development period, the Salix team is proud to announce the first official release of Salix Fluxbox Edition! Salix Fluxbox 13.1.2 is available in both 32bit and 64bit architectures and of course features the minimal Fluxbox window manager, customized with the Salix look and feel. The Fluxbox edition provides the cleanest work environment compared to any other previous Salix editions and has been designed so that it stays out of the way, while providing a fast, versatile and powerful environment.

As with all other Salix editions, the installation images of the Fluxbox edition allow the installation to be performed in three different modes, core, basic and full.

The core mode installation is identical to those offered by any other Salix edition and will install a console-only system, which can be used to build a custom system fit for any purpose, including desktop or server usage.

The basic mode installation will install a minimal graphical system, including the Fluxbox window manager, the Firefox web browser, the lightweight PCMan file manager, the Salix graphical system tools and the Gslapt package manager. No other applications are installed and the user can start with a basic system, install the application selection of his preference and have a fully personalized and clean Fluxbox system.

The full mode installation will install all software included in the installation medium, always following the "one application per task" rationale. That includes all applications present in a basic mode installation, but also the full OpenOffice.org office suite, a full selection of media applications, including the powerful Exaile music manager and the Brasero disc burning application. Installation of patent encumbered multimedia codecs is a matter of few clicks, using the "Install multimedia codecs" tool from the Multimedia section of the Fluxbox menu. Gimp is available for all image editing needs and viewnior is the default image viewer, while evince is included for viewing pdf and postscript files. The Claws Mail email client is available, along with the Transmission torrent client and pidgin can be used for connecting to almost any instant messaging network. Wicd can be used to configure and connect to both wireless and wired network connections. A full development environment is available in all three installation modes.

The installation images, listed also in the Downloads page, can be downloaded from Sourceforge or using the respective torrent file.

Congratulations and thank you!

Was waiting for the LIveCD edition. But decided to install and test the Fluxbox edition. Seems nice at first sight!

I must say that my experience has been very positive. I really like this Fluxbox edition more than the XFCE edition. It is a lot simple and for my surprise it is only using about 85Mb of RAM rafter booting up and 140-162 Mb with Firefox open. It has everything I need to manage my old Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. I am keeping this one!

Great job!

I am glad that Silex develops so successfully.
Can we hope Trinity version will be made?

P.S. Now I use LXDE version, after mаny years of Slackware with KDE3. Sorry, but KDE4 is not KDE :(

P.P.S. Sorry, this is not right topic.
