  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

My main reason to switch to GNU/Linux from Windows was the absurdity amount of ads I was getting and that I couldn't paint digitally because my Wacom tablet did weird stuff; so I found Ubuntu Studio.

I've had a lot of small but frustrating issues that would have made me go back to Windows if I weren't stubborn and a normal researcher, here are the issues so far:

- I tried first the version 18.04, the screen decreased it's brightness every minute or so even after I changed the settings, and did so even when playing media, like Youtube (still the same on 16.04 until I found the right option to change, because changing the setting on power manager did nothing).

- Then the nightmare, my fan stopped working on my laptop and it was heating a lot. It also didn't shut down when using the menu, so I installed the version 16.04 and the same thing happened.

-After resolving the fan issue (I still have to shut it down manually), I would have problems with my wireless headphones, now solved.

But because I love the performance and my graphic tablet works wonderfully I decided to keep going and so far has worked great. I also have to say that my laptop is old, around 7 years.

Has done great in hardware recognition. Includes sufficient applications for generating music and audio files. No problem but would be nice to include Audacious and Frescobaldi/Lilypond in the distribution.

I tried a lot of distros and I always went back to windows because it was very triky to make it all work properly (jack, ardour, guitarix etc..). Now I think I found the right one!

As a music producer:

Pros:

- Light and fast
- My cpu runs incredibly cool, and it's 31 celsius outside
- Looks nice ans is highly customizable
- Everything works straight out of the box, and the connection to jack is automatic
- Divers for my focusrite 2i4 1st gen were ready, just had to plug the card in

Cons:

- A couple of small and easy-to-fix issues with the touchpad. That's it.
