  • Installation

    Escuelas Linux is a low-resource distribution. As it uses Moksha as the graphical interface, the RAM and disk requirements are very low, making it possible to install it even on computers with at least 512 MB of RAM and 40 GB of hard disk space.
    Do you want to test before installing? Escuelas Linux can work on “Live” mode, from the same USB stick you would use to install it.

    See Installation Manual
  • Our own tools

    Escuelas Linux includes essential tools for its use in classrooms, such as our apps RestoreUser (to restore all the included apps to their default settings) and ReinstateUser (to fix all the included apps to their default settings, as well as delete all user files from the account).
    As for the desktop, you can make changes, but it would return to its default state after a reboot, a convenient feature on public access environments. Nevertheless, if you need the desktop unlocked or make changes to it, we also have apps to do it with ease. Everything is on our System menu.


  • Included software

    Escuelas Linux has many relevant apps that can be used at school or home. On office suites, we include LibreOffice and OnlyOffice; on Graphics, we include apps such as Gimp, Krita, and Inskcape, all that you could need to work and have fun, always with low resource consumption.
    We also include web browsers such as Firefox, Chrome/Chromium, and many other apps to have everything you need at your fingertips.
  • Educational software

    Escuelas Linux includes a superb selection of educational apps to serve users of all ages.
    For the little ones, there are apps such as TuxPaint and GCompris; for the kids, TuxMath and Scratch, for the young ones are available WxMaxima, Geogebra, Kalzium, and many more.


  • Developer Pack
