Some Popular Non-Chakra Artists

A random list of the most popular artists from the Favorite collections.

Group Info

The Chakra Project is a Gnu/Linux beloved for its simplicity and KDE purity. It began life as a KDE specialized ArchLinux (KDEMod), and since has split and grown to become a very solid independent distribution. Find out more here: chakraos.org/wiki/index.php?ti…

This unofficial group is an extended "hub for shiny, Chakra-centric eye-candy." Available are resources to turn your computer into a true work of art and then show it off. To help with ideas, you may also see a few select examples from other non-related projects.

Contributions were initially gleaned from the project's artwork as well as around here on DeviantArt. Take a look at the forum for other great works not included here.

Over the weekend Chakra went live with PulseAudio as default.

Again, the beauty of a rolling-release is that to get it all you have to do is update.

For those new to the distro, a new ISO was released with all the changes included.

For more info, check out Chakra-Linux.org/News: chakra-linux.org/news/index.ph…
In a post today chakra-linux.org/news/index.ph…, Anke outlined the reasons for why i686 would not be supported in the upcoming "Claire" release. I watched some of the debate a few months ago and it got some users pretty involved. The outcome was a pretty solid support for keeping i686 and so this change surprised me but I think it's a good one.

Anke names two key reasons for only continuing with the more modern x86_64 architecture; increasing demands on a small number of developers and their difficulty in keeping packages stable and up to date on something they don't use themselves.

"All those new users came with demands for all kinds of packages and features, and Chakra kept filling those demands as much as possible, disregarding the fact that the user demands was fast outpacing the number of volunteers actively supporting this distro. Maintaining about 7000 packages (bundles included) in a half rolling distro, at a quality level Chakra has set for itself, with 2-3 packagers doing the work on about 5000-6000 packages is not sustainable.
...
And from now on, growth will only come from an expanding, dedicated volunteer base."


Sounds like they could use some help as interest continues to soar. I'm glad they have decided not to sacrifice quality as this is my favorite distro around by far and it positions the project very aggressively. I know Chakra's minimalism plays nice on older hardware but I like that that is not the focus and I can still get a very lightweight system dedicated to current specs.

**Also, in case you missed it, the new Claire ISO is in the works with KDE 4.9, Kapudan, and other really cool stuff. Best of all for us dA users, is that will have a brand new theme. Top to bottom, this is an awesome and complete redesign by our very own Malcer inspired by his very popular and thorough Caledonia theme. It's called "Dharma" and you can check it out here: chakra-project.org/bbs/viewtop…
One of our contributors, :iconhombremaledicto: brought some great news to my attention:

"Anyway the "surprise is out!!!
It's called Be::shell, a new shell (like plasma) for the KDE desktop, which works with Qt style sheets (the syntax is similar to CSS if you've ever used gnome shell) and it is very lightweight.
You can download it from here: sourceforge.net/p/be-shell/wik…
You can see it in action in my gallery hombremaledicto.deviantart.com… or in my latest screenshots ;)"


Take it for a spin and show us what you can do!!

Hi Guys, it's pleasure to join chakra deviant & thanks to all artists who have had contributed & push their work to chakra deviant (rose).

In trims of our lovely chakra deviant design I think we should have a special widget for direct access to chakra website :

atually we do have such a thing like that, once you open you default chakra browsers ull go right into chakra website as a home page

beside there used to be an old GUI for installing packafes at chakra that has been removed for low stabilty that get you into chakra news once you open it , I hope they would do such a thing in the new package GUI they are working at

Hi Crime-Dog,

You might not got the point I meant we should have a widget here in chakra deviant allows direct access to chakra website. This new widget is targeting new people who watch our stuffs here, Linking to chakra website may increase the possibility of downloading the ISO & installing Chakra.

BTW, there will be a new GUI package manager once akabei development reach stable point. akabei is new chakra package manager which still under heavy active development.

Um, I think I understand. In the "group Info" at the top of this page there is a description of Chakra including a link to Chakra-Linux.org
I think your asking to add an image or logo with the link? As far as I know thats not possible on dA yet. I like the idea though and if there is a workaround, I'm all for it.
