Solus 1.1 Screencast and Screenshots

Solus 1.1 Screencast

We are proud to announce the release of Solus 1.1, the first point release in the Shannon series of releases. Solus 1.1 builds upon the groundwork of 1.0 with subtle refinements and improvements to Budgie, large core and graphics stack improvements, and furthers us on our journey to create something that you can just use, something that just works.


Solus is a Linux-based operating system built from scratch for the modern desktop and targeting the x86_64 architecture.


Budgie is our flagship desktop environment, developed and designed for the desktop, with inch of it catering to a desktop workflow. We have continued to improve Budgie, with v10.2.4 shipping in Solus 1.1. This release features a multitude of bugfixes, the following highlighted improvements, alongside updated translations:
  • We have resolved issues with the some icons, such as network, occasionally rendering inconsistently (sizing, colors).
  • We have resolved issues with the volume icon size.
  • System locking has been restored in Solus 1.1, as we are now leveraging LightDM. As a result of dropping GDM for LightDM, we are also seeing significant performance improvements with a reduced CPU overhead.
  • We have a new logo. Admit it, itís cute.
Letís be honest, printing isnít sexy. Printing isnít even what the cool kids do anymore. Nowadays they send their olí vintage filtered pictures on the Snapchats and sign documents on their fancy iPotatos. But that doesnít matter. Solus 1.1 ships with printing support out of the box. Now when those cool kids grow up and get jobs, their need for printing on old fashion paper will work. Got an HP printer? Install the hplip package!

Weíve refined our selection of beautiful wallpapers, generously provided by Twisted Pixels.

We also improved mail support in Solus 1.1 by resolving issues relating to Thunderbird and mime association.

Good to see that Solus has risen from the ashes of SolusOS.

Power to your elbow!
