Product Description

Chromixium is a project to recreate the functionality, look and feel of Google’s Chrome OS on a conventional desktop, GNU/Linux base system.

The benefits of this approach are:

  • A modular approach to (re)building the Chrome/Chromium OS desktop allows us to keep the base system light whilst at the same time beautifully modern and flexible
  • Hardware support for a wide range of laptops, desktops, network, video and sound cards
  • Installable to a conventional hard drive or partition allowing access to local storage, USB devices, printers and network shares
  • Ability to create persistent USB installs for portability
  • Ability to install additional software locally eg LibreOffice, GIMP, media players (even web browsers!) using Ubuntu’s or 3rd party software repositories
  • Complete control over customisation of your operating system
  • Background security updates for peace of mind and hassle-free computing.

Technical specifications

Chromixium is based on a custom 32 bit Ubuntu 14.04 build:

  • LTS (Long Term Support) Linux Kernel 3.13
  • Chromium Web Browser
  • Pepperflash Plugin
  • Openbox window manager
  • Compton desktop compositor
  • Plank dock
  • LXPanel
  • Nautilus (Files)

Applications are largely GTK+3 to create a consistent and modern look and feel.
