Joining MX development

We welcome contributions from anybody. We mostly write low-level tools in bash scripts and GUIs in Qt/C++, but we also use PyQt and an assortment of other programming languages. People of different skills contribute on their own time, usually picking up projects that pique their interest. We have a public Application Development subforum for open development if looking for public comment on work in progress.

Where to start

If you are interested in GUI/Qt/C++ apps familiarize yourself with what is in our codebase. Watch our Github account for MX apps: If you want to work on something, follow standard GitHub procedures.

To submit contributions please follow this workflow

  • Clone it to your local disk
  • Make changes -> commit them -> push them to your repo
  • Issue a Pull Request from your repo

  1. A big HUG from Madrid – Spain.
    As Debian Consultant for Spain, found this distro and will prepare a video in Youtube about it.
    Thanks for maintain it, a very very good distro after testing is 2 weeks.

  2. Thank you very much for making this tool available for free. I have a macbook pro from 2011 and as it can’t stand the new macos operating system it was horrible to use it. I am almost graduating in analysis and systems development and I hope to someday be able to contribute with linux mx.
