GeckoLinux BareBones

Published by sb56637
Based on openSUSE Leap 42.1 64-bit x86

Welcome to GeckoLinux

GeckoLinux is a Linux spin based on the openSUSE distribution, with a focus on polish and out-of-the-box usability on the desktop. It is available in Static (based on openSUSE Leap) and Rolling (based on openSUSE Tumbleweed) editions.

GeckoLinux Static BareBones edition

The purpose of the GeckoLinux BareBones edition is to provide an easily customizable openSUSE Leap base for you to build upon. It still contains all of the underlying components that make GeckoLinux a good desktop operating system, such as PulseAudio, complete CUPS printing support, and Gstreamer proprietary multimedia codecs. It also still contains the LightDM login manager, but the only login option is the Openbox window manager. GUI applications consist of Firefox, YaST, and xterm. That’s it. The rest is up to you. Have fun!
