Introduction

Welcome to the Wiki of the Ubuntu Kylin Desktop Project. The objective of the Ubuntu Kylin project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is more suitable for Chinese users. We are committed to provide you with a delicate, thoughtful and fully customized Chinese user experience out-of-the-box. For instance, by providing a desktop user interface localized in Chinese and installing common software that Chinese users commonly use by default. Ubuntu Kylin is a formal member of the Ubuntu family, commencing with Ubuntu Kylin 13.04 and 13.10. Currently, we are working on 14.04 LTS.

In Ubuntu Kylin 13.04, we provided:

  • Online Music Search on Dash: Simpler and more convenient music search by aggregating data from music websites in China, to help you find the latest, most hot Chinese pop songs.

  • Chinese Calendar: Ease of use, contains the traditional lunar calendar and the Gregorian calendar to facilitate inquiries holidays, in line with Chinese using habit.

  • Weather Indicator: The weather forecast information from China meterological administration, provide effective references for your daily life and travel.

  • Chinese Input Method: As you known, both fcitx and iBus are wonderful Chinese input methods, while we decide to choose fcitx as the default due to following reasons:
    • it is the first Chinese input method in open source community since 2002, and it has lots of fans in China, especially guys using Wubi method.
    • it provides more efficient and intelligent input experience.
    • it provides skin options and more developing input engines, such as cloud-pinyin and google-pinyin.
    • Compatibility between Fcitx and Unity is improving gradually. E.g., the latest update of NUX makes it possible to input Chinese words in Dash.
    • Fans are working to make it better, such as GTK+ show, Indicator show, etc.

    • You are welcome to join the discussion at the blueprint: Using ibus or fcitx as default.

  • Cooperation with WPS
    • What is WPS: The most popular office suite in China, including WPS Writer, WPS Presentation and WPS Spreadsheets. More information see: http://www.wps.cn/.
