Get Involved

Everything that we make is developed by people from all over the world.

Stop by to share your experiences, ask questions and discuss topics with other users and developers in our growing community.

Contribute to Nitrux

Contributions can range from something as simple as a typo fix in our documentation or testing our development ISO’s to the more intensive tasks such as maintaining or producing code for Nitrux.

Nitrux development is divided into several sub-teams, which manage different parts of the project. Find out the various tasks you can help with listed below:

  • Artwork
  • Development, including programming and packaging
  • Documentation and Translation
  • Marketing and Website
  • Quality Assurance, including testing and bug triaging

Once you get started with contributing, you’ll want to create a GitHub or a Gitlab account, and this allows you to work with on bugs, design blueprints and much more.

Everyone can participate in the Nitrux community on many levels, from merely advising fellow Nitrux users to becoming a maintainer. Any contribution, even the smallest, is valued. We welcome everybody to improve Nitrux and spread Free Software!.

Activities for everybody

Even if you can’t contribute to the tasks mentioned above, you can still help Nitrux by doing one of the following things.

If you are familiar with Nitrux, you can help others as they run into problems or questions by giving them support at one of our support outlets.

If you attend events like conferences, Linux user groups or local community team meetings, you can talk about and promote Nitrux to other people in the activities. See the Branding page to know how to use our brand with your marketing material.

Social Media

Alongside the communities at Facebook and MeWe, you can communicate with developers or others in the community by using one of the following websites:

Instant Chat

Gitter is an open-source instant messaging and chat room system for developers and users of GitHub and Gitlab repositories. Gitter is provided as software-as-a-service, with a free option providing all essential features and the ability to create a single private chat room, and paid subscription options for individuals and organizations, which allows them to create arbitrary numbers of private chat rooms.

You will find the following Nitrux channels on the Gitter network:

Improving Documentation

Our Compendium improves when the documentation improves. If there are articles that you think would be valuable to add, get involved by submitting requests to our email address.


There may be software that you wish to have on your system that is currently not available as an AppImage. While you are more than welcome to submit a bug and wait for someone else to package the software you want, you can also improve and contribute to the community by packaging software. If you’re interested in learning to package software, feel free to visit the AppImage documentation here.

Report Bugs

We’re always looking to improve our systems, mainly when they’re not functioning as expected. By reporting bugs, you improve the system not only for you but for all Nitrux users.

Donate to Nitrux

Your donations help fund various needs of the project. Everyone can contribute to Nitrux whether you are a coder or a community builder. But if you would instead contribute by directly donating money, we are happy to accept that as well.

Spending from Nitrux funds so far has been on travel to Akademy, hosting services and servers, and UEFI hardware, cloud computing for development and team shirts.

NItrux Development Builds

Introducing Nitrux Development Builds.

We’re always looking to improve Nitrux with every new release that we make, and now you can take part in this process!. We all hope that this release builds on the quality of the previous versions and that with the additional tests from the community will put Nitrux in the right place for the upcoming release.

Upgrade your system and experiment.

Are you on the lookout for the latest technologies? If you feel like being an innovator, we invite you to try our newest features and experiments in our Nitrux Development releases. We update these two versions every few days. Be the first to test-drive the latest innovations before they get to the final version of our operating system!.

Nitrux has a rapid, iterative development cycle; this means that most updates go through different stages. First, as early experiments, they are introduced to the Nitrux Development build. Finally, after we’ve polished them, we release them in the stable version of Nitrux that most users rely on daily.

Available development builds

We offer development builds for our distribution in the area below. Unofficial builds of other Linux distributions are also available to download, these builds are fully-compatible with znx but are not endorsed or supported by the respective developers.

Please remember that this release is intended for development purposes. It’s not recommended to deploy this release on production or otherwise critical environments. We’ll appreciate any constructive feedback on this release and we ask that any issues and errors found in this release are reported in detail at the appropriate channel.


This build is the development version of our Linux distribution, Nitrux. This build of Nitrux is used by ourselves to test our software, like znx and MauiKit. After every development period, this becomes the new stable release.
