Netrunner – A Linux OS feat. KDE Plasma







Visit Website

Netrunner is a complete Linux Operating System for PCs, laptops/netbooks and even ARM microcomputers, that makes exclusive use of the KDE Plasma desktop environment.

Based on Debian

The standard version ships with a full set of pre-installed software for everyday usage and is based on Debian. The Core version is a slimmed down version based on Debian Stable and allows you to build up your own system or run it on low-spec hardware like arm-boards.

Plasma Desktop

Netrunner is using KDE Plasma and tuning it to be as snappy and responsive as possible. We actively sponsor development of Plasma’s core and new components are included in Netrunner early on, for example:
  • Simplemenu and Dash
  • Task-Manager with Expanding Icons
  • Desktop Workspace (icons on a clean desktop, no overlays)
  • Hot-Spot “Show Desktop” in lower right corner
  • Auto-started KWallet
  • Simplified System Settings
  • Firefox-Quantum and Thunderbird with Plasma Integration
  • Unified Look for KDE and non-KDE-applications via GTK-Configuration

Themes and Window Decorations

Netrunner ships several Window- and Desktop-Themes to choose from, so you can start customizing right away. For most of our Window Themes, we are using the Aurorae-3 engine of KWin, which allows blur and transparency even on low-end machines.

Minimum System Reqirements

  • CPU 1.6-GHz Intel Atom
  • RAM 1GB
  • Hard Drive Size 15GB
  • Graphics Card Intel GMA 945

A Free and Libre Platform

The Netrunner Operating System is the result of a team effort based on FOSS principles.
