NEWS 210106 ABOUT ExTiX Deepin 21.1
I’ve uploaded a new extra version of ExTiX Deepin, which has VirtualBox Guest Additions pre-installed. With those installed you can run ExTiX in full screen in VirtualBox. The additions couldn’t be installed while using kernel 5.10.4-exton. I had to install Deepin’s original kernel 5.4.50-amd64-desktop. In version 210106 I’ve also included Refracta Installer. Use it in VirtualBox if you want an exact copy of ExTiX Deepin installed. Before starting Refracta Installer you should run the commands sudo apt update followed by sudo apt install grub-pc. When asked install Grub in MBR. Watch a screenshot showing when the installation is ready.

NEWS 210103 ABOUT ExTiX Deepin
I’ve released a new version of ExTiX Deepin today (210103). This ExTiX Build is based on Deepin 20.1 released by Deepin Technology 201230.

I may add that there is no other live version of Deepin 20.1.

    ExTiX 21.1 is now on the front page at That will probably dramatically increase the download numbers.

    ExTiX Deepin is now on the fourth place on "trending" list (before Manjaro, MX Linux, Mint, Ubuntu and other major Linux distros).
