Documentation : KXStudio 14.04.5 : About

NOTE: The KXStudio project is currently on a break, regular development is expected to return later in 2019. Thanks for understanding.

KXStudio 14.04.5 is an ISO release based on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, made on 09/06/2017.
Check the Live-DVD section in the Downloads page to download it (or just click here).

The Live-DVD contains a highly optimized KDE4 desktop, together with a low-latency kernel (version 3.13).
There's a lot of audio-related applications inside, with even more available to install via the repositories.

The live system is based upon Kubuntu code with several tweaks (like disable file indexer and everything else that can introduce random xruns).

Current 14.04.5 Notes

  • Some applications and websites don't work nicely with dark themes, which KXStudio uses by default.
    This is not a bug in the theme(s) but rather upstream (ie, app and website authors).
    We encourage users to report such issues upstream so they can be fixed for everyone using dark themes.
  • The KXStudio GTK3 theme is unfinished. Applications that use GTK3 might appear slightly broken.
