SolydX is a Debian based distribution with the Xfce desktop. It intends to be as light-weight as possible without giving up any of the expected functionality.

After burning the ISO to USB or DVD, you can try SolydX “Live” before you decide to install.

SolydX does not need to be reinstalled each time an update is released. You don’t have to reinstall, ever!
Updates are delivered in quarterly packs through the update manager. The update manager sits in your system tray and signals you whenever there is an update available. You can find a detailed description of the update pack process here.


You can download the ISO by torrent, directly from our server, or mirrors. After the download, verify that the md5sum corresponds with the md5sum shown in the right pane.

Internet and E-mail

Firefox is a very well-known and used browser to safely browse the internet.
Thunderbird is your default e-mail client and both Firefox and Thunderbird can be easily extended with free downloadable add-ons.


These are the programs to get you started:

  • A Word processor: Abiword,
  • and a Spreadsheet: Gnumeric.

SolydX was made to be light, but if you prefer LibreOffice you can easily install that with the Software Manager.


VLC is a media player that can play almost any music or video file, and you don’t need to install any additional codecs either.
Exaile lets you play and organize your vast music collection.
