Hi everybody,

After update of Calculate Linux 17, you can have application which don't run on your system.

When you launch apps in the terminal, you have an error symbol lookup error.

Or Clementine :

clementine: symbol lookup error: clementine: undefined symbol: _ZN6google8protobuf8internal13empty_string_B5cxx11E



Your CL new (easily customizable) looks

Added by Elena GAVRILOVA over 1 year ago


Let's admit it: the appearance of Calculate Linux 17 and earlier was not easy to configure. As all system tools use static paths to image files, you can not change anything unless you delete the theme package first, or create and apply templates for more automated configuration. In the latter case, you had also to think about image resolution, so that not to overload your computer with too big a wallpaper, nor to distort a too small one. And should you want to change appearances on a CL Live USB drive, bootable on different hardware, you had provide for all possible resolution patterns, at least for the Grub or bootup screen. All this was cumbersome and tricky. That is why Calculate users often preferred standard appearance, even though many maintained their customized version of the distribution.

It took us some time to find a flexible solution for unfamiliar or non-expert users, working either on a hard disk or on a Live USB drive. Calculate tools and templates were rewritten.

Calculate Linux is 10 years old

Added by Ivan Bulychev over 1 year ago

10 years ago, on June 6th, 2007 the Calculate Linux project website was opened. Our aim was to find like-minded people, get support and move to a qualitatively new level. The first image of Calculate Linux was distributed as an archive once a month. You needed to download also another archive with a setup program to install the system. Step by step the distribution has grown into something bigger and got recognised in the whole world. We would like to thank all of you who help to develop the project, install the system, support newbies, report bugs.

Meet the new Calculate Linux Desktop with Cinnamon flavour!

Calculate Linux Desktop Cinnamon (CLDC) features a collection of Gnome 3 applications combined with the [[screenshots|classic CL design]] and the OpenRC init system.

CLDC is the fourth [[cld|Calculate Linux Desktop]] home or corporate environment providing an excellent user experience. We rebranded Cinnamon so as to make it look like a [[user guide|typical Calculate Linux]] desktop, unless it was impossible due to specificities of the environment. When used with Calculate Directory Server, CLDM gets all server settings automatically, without any basic admin intervention whatsoever.


Customizing your desktop with ini.env
