Download

There are 3 different kind of installation media Artix currently provides: base, minimal and community.

  • Base ISOs provide a bare minimum system. Installation is done in a TTY and is intended for knowledgeable users. If you don't know what a TTY is or can't read the wiki instructions, don't get base.

  • Minimal images come with a slightly preconfigured desktop system (LXQt, LXDE, MATE, Cinnamon, KDE/Plasma, XFCE) and a basic set of applications: a file manager, a media player (mpv), a network manager, a document viewer, a web browser and the graphical installer. Most people would want this ISO.

  • The community ISO images are created by individual Artix developers and come in 2 flavours: GTK and Qt. The main environment is MATE and KDE/Plasma, respectively, but they also provide LXDE and LXQt as lightweight alternatives. These images contain a complete set of applications for general desktop use, especially KDE/Plasma. They are generally well-tested but provided without official support. Recommended for users that want a fully preconfigured desktop that Just Works™ and/or are too busy to set it up themselves.

  • ISOs marked as gremlins or testing contain testing features.

Please, choose your nearest mirror to download your installation media. Our own download servers are usually overloaded (thank you).
