DistroWatch.com: Ubuntu Kylin

Ubuntu Kylin

Last Update: 2017-10-19 14:19 UTC


Ubuntu Kylin is an official Ubuntu subproject whose goal is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is more suitable for Chinese users using the Simplified Chinese writing system. The project provides a delicate, thoughtful and fully customised Chinese user experience out-of-the-box by providing a desktop user interface localised into Simplified Chinese and with software generally preferred by many Chinese users. Ubuntu Kylin was originally shipping with Ubuntu's Unity desktop, but starting with version 17.04, it was replaced with a custom desktop called UKUI (based on MATE).

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 97 (127), 6 months: 100 (102), 3 months: 91 (114), 4 weeks: 86 (119), 1 week: 81 (126)

Average visitor rating: 7.75/10 from 4 review(s).

  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I like the UKUI Desktop, especially the start menu. I used to be a Windows user, but now I am going to use ubuntu Kylin in the future although It still has some shortcomings. I hope it gets better and better.

I gave it an 8 bek I couldnt give it a 7.6

I have had this installed on my home laptop/ surfboard for a year now.

pros- its ubuntu! easy to install and connect, stable out of the box. package list? its ubuntu! start with synaptic and put whatever you want on it. this distro is a nice change of pace for this gringo, has an exotic feel to it but not to a confusing or limiting degree.

cons- I'm pretty ambivalent when it comes to unity, except that I dislike going thru dash to get to settings and hardware tools. I REALLY dislike dash after reading the privacy statement.

general- Dont forget to midsum, gfw, apparmor and chkrootkit your install. If you install a VPN chkrootkit before and after to see what shows up.

I have try the Live version, I Like the UKUI Desktop, and the booting process have a nice boot splash...
But, when i change to English its not fully "English", there is some Kanji Chinesse in there....
That why, i dont install it to my Asus X201EV (Intel Celeron 1007U - 4GB RAM)

I hope in the future it have "English version"
