MX-21 KDE includes the usual MX tools, antiX-live-usb-system, and snapshot technology that our users have come to expect from our standard flagship Xfce releases. Adding KDE/plasma to the existing Xfce/MX-fluxbox desktops will provide for a wider range user needs and wants.

Key Default Applications

The versions listed refer to the date of release; they will be continually upgraded as time goes on.


Some users with intel video chipsets may need to use “i915.invert_brightness=1” boot code as some machines apparently have brightness values backwards in the driver. There are live menu options for that code.

System clock settings are not adjustable via the KDE system settings unless the user is running systemd. Use the MX Date & Time application to adjust your system clock settings.
