ProxLinux was born in 2012 and has just recently been revived. The name was originally Project X Lubuntu, then Pro-X-Linux and then combined into a single word in ProxLinux 2.
An Ubuntu/Lubuntu based Linux powered operating system inspired by Fluxbox and FluxBuntu.
ProxLinux sports dark, but beautiful looks and a right click menu. This menu can be accessed by right clicking on the panel or the desktop. There’s no menu button, and certainly no ‘Start’ menu. Just right click anywhere!
I became interested in this idea while testing an old Linux Mint Fluxbox release (now discontinued) but Fluxbox just didn’t cut it for me.
Then came Lubuntu with OpenBox, I built my system and a friend suggested I share it with the world, this was ProxLinux 1 released on the 18th of February 2012 and then
ProxLinux 2 on the 6th of June 2012. In August 2012 I released ProxLinux 2.2, ProxLinux 2.2 with bug fixes.
Since then almost 4 years has passed, development slowed down and eventually halted, why this happened I don’t know.
This brings us to now and what we have is a system leaps and bounds better than I could have ever hoped for. It’s beautiful, fast, efficient and stable. It boosts productivity and allows you to work smarter.
