MX Linux 23.2 "Libretto" Released

Jan 22, 2024

MX-23.2 is a second refresh of the MX-23 release and mostly consists of bug fixes and updates, but users will find a couple of new tools in the mix.

The team behind MX Linux has announced a new point release of MX-23, codename "Libretto."

This version is based on Debian 12.4, and includes kernel 6.1, and all versions have been updated to the latest packages found in both the Debian and MX repositories.

The AHS (Advanced Hardware Support) Xfce release, however, uses the Liquorix 6.6 kernel with updated firmware and mesa libraries. There is also an optional opt-in for auto-updates.

Some of the highlights of this release include Pipewire 1.0, a fix for fstab generation during installation, build-essential package has been added by default, two new tools have been added (MX Locale for managing system local information and papirus-folder-colors for making Papirius themes with different folder colors), Webcamoid was replaced with Kamoso (in the KDE Plasma version), and Guvcview for Xfce and Fluxbox editions.

A fix also was added in the mx-comfort-themes package which improves the display of apps that included white text on white backgrounds and black text on black backgrounds.

Finally, a new wallpaper option (MX Linux Dessert Landscape) was added.

You can download versions with Xfce (standard or AHS), KDE Plasma, and Fluxbox. You can also download 32-bit versions of the Xfce and Fluxbox editions.
