Solus

Open source

We build open source desktop experiences and the Solus operating system that is designed for home computing.

About



Solus is an open source project dedicated towards building a cohesive desktop experience with our Linux-based operating system, which is curated, designed, and optimized for home computing platforms.

Solus encompasses a multitude of initiatives, such as:

  • Brisk Menu: A modern menu for the MATE Desktop.
  • Budgie: A distribution agnostic, feature-rich desktop environment designed to keep out of the users way.
  • Optimized Gaming Experience leveraging our custom Steam runtime environment and Linux Steam Integration project, responsible for intercepting library requests by games and serving optimized alternatives.
  • Package Repositories built and managed by our open-source toolchain: Packaging (ypkg, solbuild), Management (Software Center, eopkg, sol), Distribution (ferryd), Configuration (usysconf, qol-assist)
