MX Linux aims to make using a Linux® system faster and easier for everyday tasks, whether you are a beginner who just wants to do email and surf the web or a developer who just wants to write code and run advanced programs. Because we know that different users have different levels of knowledge, experience, skill and patience, MX Linux users have access to multiple support structures:

Our Home Brew

  • MX FAQs. The first resource for a new user, with many localizations. Link on the Desktop.
  • MX-Fluxbox Documentation. Basic treatment of the Fluxbox implementation in MX Linux, available when logged into MX-Fluxbox by pressing F1 and selecting the desired language.
  • MX Users Manual. This full manual is aimed for the beginning and intermediate user of MX Linux. Installed with the OS, press Alt-F1 to launch it.
  • MX Videos. A very appealing group of videos on a broad range of topics that includes a rocking introduction to MX that will make you want to turn up the sound.
  • MX Forum and antiX Forum. The place to post questions, find answers and keep track of developments of all kinds.
  • Social media sites for general help and information can be found on this list.
  • MX/antiX Technical Documentation Wiki. Detailed documents that supply extended support for the Users Manual.
  • antiX/MX Bugs. This Bugzilla page enables users to see and, when registered, to record or edit bug or enhancement reports.

External Resources

  • Xfce Forum. People running Xfce on any platform come to this site to share with each other and to get detailed information from highly experienced users.
  • Debian Wiki. Very handy collection of technical material relating to Debian Stable, the base upon which MX Linux is built.
  • Xfce Wiki. Equally handy collection of similar material from the creators and users of the Desktop Environment.
  • KDE Wiki. This home for KDE users and enthusiasts provides information for end users on how to use KDE applications.
  • Simplified manual pages. Developed by TLDRpages and hosted with a search box by DistroWatch, these pages present commands with a clear explanation of what each command does and lists examples of how the command is most often used.

Web Search Engines

  • Error messages. If you get an error message while doing something, an excellent first step is often to copy the message and put it into a web search box. It may help to add the particular program or process that was running when it appeared, such as “Synaptic [error message].”
  • Hardware configuration issues. You can often solve hardware problems by searching on the terms such as “Debian Jessie [printer brand and model]” or “Linux [wireless card and version].”
