The development team of Musix GNU+Linux is proud to present version 3.0 Stable. We didn’t found serious bugs, so we corrected the known ones and we think this is a great release.


For this version of the installable Live DVD/USB Stable we added some video editors like kdenlive 0.9.6, avidemux and cinelerra, added french and serbian language support, openoffice, solved some minor KDE desktop bugs… Musix 3.0 boots by default in LXDE, but you can choose the tailored KDE and IceWM desktops or the original fluxbox and openbox; os-probe was installed to detect other systems during HD installation. The Kernel 3.4.14-gnu-RT23 is 100% free as well as all software in Musix and operates in real time for audio and music production. For a full list of installed software, please see: package_list3.0stable.txt


Special mention to the developers Ariel Errera, Carlos Sanchiavedraz, Gilberto Borges, Daniel Vidal, Javier Llorente, Pablo Sastre, Pablo Lozano, Jose Vazquez Viader, Suso Comesaña, Mariano Ibaldi, Claudio Caldas, Martin Carr and Jacobo Najera (sorry if forget someone) to have accompanied the project during this 2013 and 2014 even with wide swings and the low availability of free time.

Musix GNU+Linux 3.0 is based on Debian GNU/Linux 7.2 «Wheezy»

Some useful information:

User: user

Pass: live

* site is only an archive of past versions, our new site is


* If you are new to music/audio on GNU+Linux, we recommend opening any of the .starter demos in the folder /home/user/demos/starters/ (right click from the file browser, Open With -> musixstarter)

* For newbies, we do recommend UNetbootin to create a Live USB, but if you want to install from USB to HD, please see «Installation» below.

Mailing list:


The recommended method is burning a DVD and install from there. If you dont have a DVD device and only can boot from USB pendrive you need to:

1) execute: isohybrid file.iso

2) copy the ISO image to the USB memory:

cat file.iso > /dev/sdX

…usually /dev/sdb [warning, this will erase all your files on that device]

3) sync

(to flush  kernel filesystem buffers) and

4) just reboot from the USB pendrive and choose install.

Or refer to Debian installation for USB.


Known bugs from RC1 solved in RC2 and Stable:

There were some annoying bugs that didnt prevent use Musix at its true potential, these were: KDE warning about the loss of avant-window-navigator, the demos do not work from the LXDE menu because musixstarter not find the file «~ /. jackdrc «, KDE doesnt launch a network manager (nm-applet) at the start by default but is installed on the system, sudo does not work for graphic apps into Xorg (xhost +local:root), and some icons such as audacious2.desktop are ‘broken’; os-probe was needed to detect other Operating Systems during HD install: all these bugs were  corrected for the RC2 and Stable version.

TESTING version

There is the next Musix version masterized by Daniel Vidal, based on new kernels:


(you can also boot in english, portuguese, french or serbian)

    Estoy bajando la iso… uff! que lerdo el servidor! deberian ponerlo en otro lugar para descargas rapidas. una copiecita en algo onda rapidshare no estaria mal, con la md5 en el servidor de ustedes para asegurar que esta buena la bajada y que es la oficial.
    Bueno, me late que esta buenisima yo use la 2.0 y luego me recomendaron la distro Artistx (ubuntu) que me hace rabiar pero se la aguanta hasta cierto punto. Sin embargo, luego de instalarle la 2.0 a un amigo que tiene una maquina vieja y le va como avión, me ecuentro que esta esta 3.0 con whezzy que lo use en una laptop y rajaba la tierra. Espero poder probarla y que sea lo espero y espero que mas.
    Luego les cuento como me fue.

    In English-I could not find the install script. This problem was there in Knoppix 7.0.2 which they corected in 7.0.4.
    Since Musix is based on ? Knoppix ? Debian it may be the same problem what Knoppix had.
    Hope they coorect this in the next update.
    Otherwise it is a great Distro.
    Thank YOU Guys/Girls

    Dear Musix team,

    I just enjoyed the live version of your great linux distro.

    Is there a way to pursue an offline installation? – I tried it, but it was missing some packages like grub.

    Like can I put the content of the iso image on an usb drive and add the missing packages (from Debian sources/servers) in a designated directory?

    Thanks in advance &


    • Hi, thanks for your kind words from Germany, we love the feedback.

      I think grub is prefectly installed, see:

      dpkg -l | grep grub
      ii grub-common 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader (common files)
      ii grub-pc 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS version)
      ii grub-pc-bin 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS binaries)
      ii grub2-common 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader (common files for version 2)

      And there are a lot of grub commands, see:

      grub-bin2h grub-kbdcomp grub-mkfont grub-mkpasswd-pbkdf2 grub-ntldr-img grub-set-default
      grub-editenv grub-menulst2cfg grub-mkimage grub-mkrelpath grub-probe grub-setup
      grub-fstest grub-mkconfig grub-mklayout grub-mkrescue grub-reboot
      grub-install grub-mkdevicemap grub-mknetdir grub-mount grub-script-check

      Musix uses the Debian Installer, you can choose it from the main boot menu, just go down in the options; any doubt, just come back,

      Anyway, it for some reason grub is not installed on you Musix version (are you using the 3.0 stable?), you can install it via internet using

      apt-get install grub2

    hola. he intentado instalar la stable en mi notebook, algo ocurre y no instala bien el grub o el sistema en gral. desearia que pudieran postear un manual de instalacion especifico para esta distro.. grax

    • Hola Darío, gracias por el reporte, ¿podrías probar un par de cosas?

      desde el live-dvd en una consola de comandos, ejecutá esta orden:

      dpkg -l | grep grub

      y decinos si sale algo así:

      ii grub-common 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader (common files)
      ii grub-pc 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS version)
      ii grub-pc-bin 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS binaries)
      ii grub2-common 1.99-27+deb7u2 i386 GRand Unified Bootloader (common files for version 2)

      caso contrario, falta grub y deberemos remasterizar el dvd para que funcione correctamente.

      • Dario dijo:

        Buenas… coloque el comando en linea desde una terminal de usuario y una Xterm root y no figura nada. es decir, en vez de mostrar lo que pusiste que debiera mostrarse solo se muestra el prompt… me parece que no esta el paquete grub…. gracias por ayudar

    prueba con otra de las instalaciones, en gui install instala el grub, a veces hay que insistir en el grub para que ejecute, te puede decir 4 o 5 veces y despues lo instala.
