Trisquel is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and recognised by the FSF (Free Software Foundation). It reuses Ubuntu packages and avoids using non-free packages. Thus, it uses the linux-libre kernel (like Parabola Linux).

A new version development begins just after an Ubuntu release. You have to wait about six months for the corresponding Trisquel version to be released.

Trisquel versions

Trisquel's base version uses a GNOME desktop. Other versions are available among which the Trisquel Mini version using an LXDE desktop.


The easiest way is to use the Triquel Mini version. One can install it with the "trisquel-mini" package, if needed, thanks to the command below.

# apt-get install trisquel-mini

There also exists a "lxde"-named package that can be installed thanks to the command below.

# apt-get install lxde
