Description KaOS ISO 2014.03 [Rolling Release]

KaOS makes regular ISO releases available, so any (new) user is not confronted with a large or complicated first update. Those who already have KaOS installed do not need to reinstall, a regular “sudo pacman -Syu” will always give you the latest.

    NOTE: in the official .torrent file the name of the ISO image is “KaOS-2014.03.01-x86_64.iso”, but in the SourceForge mirrors it is “KaOS-2014.03-x86_64.iso”; it is the same file, and BitTorrent clients that support webseeds do not rely on the filenames when downloading (i.e. the filenames are irrelevant regarding integrity check).



    Some webseeds [as the official .torrent file does not include any], for BitTorrent clients that support this feature (if yours does not, upgrade or switch to one that does!):

    KaOS | A lean KDE Distribution es

    The idea behind KaOS is to create a tightly integrated rolling and transparent distribution for the modern desktop, build from scratch with a very specific focus. Focus on one DE (KDE), one toolkit (Qt), one architecture (x86_64) plus a focus on evaluating and selecting the most suitable tools and applications. All work is geared toward packaging, not developing new tools or applications.

    KaOS is a rolling-release distribution built from scratch and focused on providing one desktop environment (KDE) on one architecture (64-bit x86).

    KaOS ISO 2014.03 [Rolling Release]
    [ also @ ]

    This time a combined Status report and ISO release announcement, quite a lot has happened, so a bit longer article then usual.

    KaOS is very proud to announce the availability of the March release of a new stable ISO. The last month a lot of work has gone into redoing the whole artwork and theming of KaOS to give this distribution more of it’s own identity. Midna is the name of the set, and includes midna-ksplash, midna-kdm and midna plasma. The theme is based on the wallpaper especially designed for KaOS by Gfxcoorpinc and is a move to a modern flat look, which includes the flattr-icons set.

    To further complement KaOS theming, this ISO contains a new package, KaOS_wallpapers.

    A new ISO was not needed just because of new artwork, as usual, many packages received updates, this time very much at the base of the system. The toolchain was updated and includes glibc 2.19 & binutils 2.24. The boost/icu plus libgcrypt stack were updated to the latest, included kernel is linux 3.13.5. Systemd had a major new release after more than 3000 commits over the last 5 months, included is 210. After staying with Samba 3 as long as possible, it was time to move to the new 4 series, since maintenance of 3 seized in December.
    KDE is at 4.12.3 for this ISO. Plasma-nm underwent quite a big change, and has clearer functions now, including airplane mode.

    New additions to the ISO are kdeconnect-kde, an application to make your computer aware and seamless integrated with all your devices, to simplify your daily tasks and kde-touchpad-config.

    Current users of KaOS can easily convert to the new look. For the Midna packages, it is easiest to use octopi, search for midna, mark all entries listed for installation. Once installed, go to system-settings > workspace appearance and change ksplash and desktop theme to midna. For kdm, go to login screen in system-settings, click the theme tab, and select midna.
    The new icon theme can be installed, either using octopi, or:

     sudo pacman -Syu
     sudo pacman -S flattr-icons

    The source for these packages is available at:


    Some notable new additions to the repositories are brackets, redshift-plasmoid, bitcoin, aria, converseen, ultimate-control and tlp.
    Major apps that were updated to their latest include Calligra 2.8.0, LibreOffice 4.2.1, google-chrome 35, firefox 27.0.1

    For further info about the ISO please see the release notes and the Download page.

    About 480 packages will be moved, so for all current users, give your mirror a few hours to fully sync, or wait until tomorrow to do your update.
