Can we have a Neptune based on MX Linux ? - saucepan - 10-30-2018 02:40 PM

MX Linux is by far the best Debian based Distro.
I'd love to have MX with KDE instead of XFCE.
Neptune provides one of the best KDE experiences.

There are so many good Debian KDE Distros out there. (Netrunner and SolydK for example)
Why not use MX Linux as a base for Neptune?

Hello,

I think a community KDE respin of MX already exists.
I love both MX and Neptune, but I don't share your point of view. MX targets old hardware.
MX and Neptune just share the same Debian base. Neptune Plasma philosophy may be closer to Netrunner (shared repos between them) and Q4OS.
I sometimes wonder if these tree KDE (and German) distributions should not collaborate or merge.

have been using MX for 2 years and it is the best distribution based on Debian, they have a space dedicated to MX KDE but they are missing a lot, I tried MX-KDE and I was not comfortable, I continue with MX based on XFCE, on the other hand Neptune is based on Debian and with small failures but it is very stable. I do not see the reason for the suggestion.

This seems like a good idea, but MX depends on Xfce. An alternative is the use of antiX on which is based on MX. but is need to add the MX Tools or an alternative.
I'm a little disappointed by the kde version in Neptune 6 Beta, I'd like to see the same version as this used in KDE neon
