KaOS Linux 2022.12 Has Plenty to be Excited About

Dec 14, 2022

KaOS is a KDE Plasma-based Linux distribution that has a new version that includes some of the latest releases and some new tools.

KaOS Linux 2022.12, a rolling release distribution based on Arch Linux, is now available and includes some exciting additions. First off, the distribution ships with Linux kernel 6.0. Next, KaOS Linux 2022.12 adds KDE Plasma 5.26.4, which is the latest version of the desktop environment. Along with that update are KDE Gear 22.12 and KDE Frameworks 5.101.

Some of the improvements to the desktop include: the Dolphin file manager finally including a selection mode, which makes it easy to quickly select files and folders you want to work with; the Gwenview image viewer now offers brightness, contrast, and gamma controls; Kate (text editor) now includes a Keyboard Macro tool; Kalendar now displays events within popup windows.

A new tool that should excite system admins is Kjournald, which is a GUI application for viewing the system log. Kjournald includes a filter tool, so you can quickly view only the information you need. Another new tool is the Ghostwriter markdown editor.
