The Universody Linux for Photographers Remix

A Digital Darkroom on a DVD

Designed as a complete imaging system on disk.
Everything needed to work on digital images for print, web or other purposes.
Also Desk Top Publishing, Video editing, Audio capture and editing and website design.
Pre-loaded are all the programmes I use on a regular basis.
For Image manipulation there is: Gimp (Gnu Image Manipulation Program), Pix (Image viewer), Rawtherapee (Raw camera file opener) and many more.
You can tether suitable cameras using Entangle.
For Desk Top Publishing there is Scribus and also Libre Office Writer.
For Web Design there is Bluefish.
I also occasionally need to edit video and sound, so I have added Kdenlive, Handbrake and Audacity.
All the usual stuff is there, Firefox with flash installed, VLC media player etc.


I am not a computer programmer, I am a user, but like my working environment set up the way I want it.

I have therefore created this custom version of Linux, which is based on Xubuntu, which is based on Debian, which are all based on the project created by Linus Torvalds. It is not a 'distro', simply a version of Xubuntu with pre-installed additional repositories and applications designed to make Linux easy to use for photographers.
The current version is adapted from Xubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Using the operating system installed on all 500 of the worlds most powerful computers with the programs you need for digital image manipulation. It runs on a PC not on Windows or Mac OS.

This is Linux - free and largely Open Source Software.
It should run as a live DVD, on any 64 bit compatible PC (including those sold by Apple) without affecting your computer or installed software. Also available as live boot USB drive. You also have the option to install it - but make sure you know what you are doing!

Thanks goes to all those who created this software.

If you would like to try the 'Universody Linux Remix' on DVD let me know and if you send me a Stamped Addressed Envelope I will run you off a copy.    It's free - it's Linux.
