ExLight Linux Live DVD with Enlightenment 0.19.1 -
WHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 150126?
1. ExLight is now based on upcoming Ubuntu 15.04 (alias
Vivid Vervet) and Debian Jessie.
2. I have upgraded the Desktop environment Enlightenment (Beauty
at your fingertips) to version 0.19.1.
3. I have replaced kernel 3.16.0-21-exton
with kernel 3.18.0-10-exton.
4. ExLight's ISO file is now a ISO-hybrid,
which means that it can very easily be transferred
(copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run
ExLight from the USB stick and save all your system
changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence!
I've found two scripts which make the installation to
USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My
tests show that they work flawlessly on USB
installations of all normal Ubuntu systems. Read my INSTRUCTION
how to use the scripts.
5. Another big improvement is that ExLight can run
Use Boot alternative 3 (Copy
to RAM). When the system has booted up
you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You'll
need at least 2 GB RAM to run ExLight that way.
6. The installation program Ubiquity
(live installer) is now working as intended in ExLight
version 150126. I.e. a new user (your user) will be
created during the installation process.
7. I have installed Nvidia Graphic driver 346.35.
8. The ISO file has decreased in size from 1200 MB to
768 MB. It means that the system will
run faster from DVD or USB stick. When you run ExLight
everything will be superfast!
at your fingertips). Kernel
kernel 3.18.3). Program
Synaptic, GParted, Wicd, AbiWord,
(for watching Netflix
movies) and Gimp.
Also some additions in order to install programs
I have also included Nvidia
Graphic driver 346.35. It has support for the
following GPUs: GeForce 800A, GeForce 800M, GeForce
GTX 970M and GeForce GTX 980M. Furthermore
compilation tools so that you can install programs
from source. Study the full program
at January 26, 2015.
The system language is English.
Login to Enlightenment
When you start up from the dvd or USB stick you will
end up in X/Enlightenment as the ordinary user exlight. If you
log out you will come to LXDM's
login screen. Log in again as the ordinary user exlight
with no password or as root
(superuser) with password root.
Using the Nvidia
If you want (and can) use Nvidia
Graphic driver 346.35 you shall boot up ExLight
alternative 4 (Compatibility mode). Then open up
a terminal and run sudo
nvidia-xconfig. Log out. If you can't reach
X/Enlightenment then your card isn't supported. Delete
xorg.conf with sudo
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf and run startx.
Or reboot your computer.
In version 150126 I have replaced NetworkManager with
Wicd to make
it easier to configure wireless connections. Now just
start up Wicd-client. Give your WEP/WAP password and
connect. That's it! Maybe you will have to change your
network interfaces (eth0, wlan0) to for example eth1
and wlan1 in Wicd's Preferences and click on the
button Refresh before you can connect.
to hard drive
Note that you in advance (just in case) should
create a partition of at least 6 GB for ExLight and
a SWAP space double the size of your computer's RAM.
I.e. if you have RAM of 1024 MB or less. If you have
RAM of 2 GB or more it's enough with a SWAP space of
2 GB. The installation program in ExLight /Ubuntu is
otherwise "intuitive". Choose manual partitioning
and select the partition you created in advance for
installation. NOTE re. ExLight build
you want to add respositories with a command
(for example: sudo apt-add-repository
ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports) you'll have
change the first line in /etc/lsb-release to "DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu".
Read my INSTRUCTION.
If you install ExLight to hard drive you must/should
immediately (for security reasons) manually change
root's password. This is because the installation
program does not ask about a new root password.
(Ubuntu original uses no root password). The root
password is changed by running the command sudo
passwd root. After installing ExLight to hard
drive, you can alternatively remove the root
password altogether. This is done with the command sudo
passwd root -l.
Create new users
Run the command sudo
Use Alsamixer (command: alsamixer)
for sound settings. It can look like this.
Also: Unmute with the round sound button in the bottom
How do I install and remove programs?
ExLight/Ubuntu/Debian uses Apt/Synaptic. The
most important commands are apt-get update
and apt-get install program-name. You can
read about package management with Apt HERE.
Apt/Synaptic works extremely well. You can also
install programs in ExLight from source using the
commands 1) ./configure --prefix=/usr 2) make
3) make install.

EXTON distributions: The number of
Exton distributions has decreased from 66 (all time high
in June 2011) to 13. See a complete
LIST. It was a bit too much for me to keep 66
distributions up to date. All Exton distributions on the
