Project Description

By producing an easy to use Linux based Operating System, we hope that people will discover just how simple it can be to use Linux Lite.

Linux Lite is free for everyone to use and share, and suitable for people who are new to Linux or for people who want a lightweight environment that is also fully functional.

Linux Lite is based on the Ubuntu LTS series giving you 5 years of support per major release.

The following software is included: LibreOffice Suite, VLC Media Player, Firefox Web Browser, Thunderbird Email, Gimp Image Editor, Lite Themes, Lite User Manager, Lite Software, Lite Sounds, Lite Tweaks, Lite Welcome, Lite Manual, Lite Sources, Lite Updates Notify, Lite Upgrade, Whiskermenu and more.

Copy the iso image to a 2gb or larger USB stick using Unetbootin. Unetbootin is available for Windows and in Linux through your existing distro repos, or you can download from here -
Or, you can burn the Linux Lite iso to a DVD with your preferred DVD burning software. Some options are available here for free DVD burning software -
Alternatively, you can use the dd command: sudo dd if=linux-lite-1.0.4-32bit.iso of=/dev/sdx bs= 1M where 'x' is the letter of your usb stick.
In linux to find out the letter of your usb stick, open a terminal and type: df -h It is usually listed as 'media' or similar.

NB: Your CPU must support pae extensions, most modern computers do, if you're not sure search for the word 'pae' and your cpu in your favourite search engine.
