New Features In The Now-Available-to-Download OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 Linux


OpenMandriva Lx is presently one of the most exciting KDE-based Linux distros with the aim of serving the interests of both beginner and advanced users alike. OpenMandriva has the advantage of a crisp KDE Plasma 5 desktop experience due to the high level of optimization that has been coded into it.

The OpenMandriva Community announced the OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 final release not too long after the announcement of the OpenMandrive Lx 3.0 RC1. The project’s developers have improved the overall performance and stability of the distro with this release bringing support for Chinese and Japanese languages.


OpenMandriva Lx is compiled with LLVM/clang and below are some of the major fixes since the release of Release Candidate.

  • A longtime GnuPG bug has been fixed
  • Boot delays have been reduced
  • i586 release
  • No need to install through live image as ability to install with Calamares now available
  • Issues with Firefox plugins fixed

Version 3.0 (just like the previous OpenMandriva Lx releases) comes with the most popular media players, Media burning applications, ISO building programs, and graphic apps.

The OS lets users choose their preferred application launcher from 3 options — Kicker, Kickoff, and fullscreen.


The lightweight OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 desktop environment comes with LXQt, a brand new and faster web browser: Qupzilla, and a lightweight file manager: PCManFM.

To download either the 64 or 32-bit version of OpenMandrive Lx 3.0 Linux distro head over to the SourceForge page OR, you can equally download the torrent files of OpenMandrive Lx 3.0 Linux.
