antiX-22 files - Initial release 19 October 2022

antiX Linux has many versions. Please select one that best suits your needs.

antiX is available in 64 bit (computers built in the last 10 years) or 32 bit (very old computers or newer machines but be aware that a lot of software no longer provides 32 bit versions).

antiX also has two possible init systems: sysVinit (default option) or runit.
If you don't know or care about init systems, choose the sysVinit version.
Each of these architectures and init system comes in 4 possible "flavours"

antiX-full (c1.4GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.
Suitable for most users. Lots of applications pre-installed and has the best hardware support.

antiX-base (c800MB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.
Suitable for those who want to customise what to install.

antiX-core (c460MB) – no gui environment, but should support most wireless.
Suitable for confident/comfortable users who want to build up from a minimal install.

antiX-net (c180MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build. (NOTE – to connect to the Internet, you might need to type as root user dhclient eth0 or eth1).
Suitable for Advanced users.

How to create a bootable pen-drive with an antiX.iso

The iso images can be written and booted live from a cd, frugal install via hdd, from usb, etc. To make the most of using the antiX live system, particularly from a usb, it is recommended to use the antiX/MX live usb maker or Rufus if using Windows to make the CD. If either of these do not work for you, it is possible to use other image writing tools. Keep in mind that in most cases the way the image writer makes the live usb leaves the live boot media/image read only and therefor cannot make use of all the antiX live usb features.

Live usb maker comes preinstalled on antiX and MX. For other linux distributions an AppImage is available for download from here (; However this currently is for 64 bit only. Once you have downloaded the package you must open your downloads folder, extract the package, and run the AppImage with root priveleges (to read/write/format/mount the usb). deb packages are also available for download through the antiX repos ( or the source code on gitlab. The helpfile or instructions for using live usb maker can be found here (

Instructions and download for rufus can be found on their website Downloading the executable and running the program as administrator should be enough to run rufus. It is recommended that you skip the “setup persistence” option within rufus as during the antiX liveboot you will be able to (optionally) setup persistence. This will setup be a more accurate persistence setup.

In both instances a writable partition, valid partition name, etc; are required to setup the persistence files. Using other options which make a read only partition (example: dd) or a different partition format (example: etcher) make it more difficult for you to make a setup that allows more use of the antiX live usb system. ( The setup needed would be comparable using a live cd and attempting to have live persistence. Even if/when working correctly there will be a number of features lacking. For example: you cannot remaster ( the base image. Optionally to make use of the full live usb system on a multiboot usb (or within another hard drive install), you might consider to manually setup a frugal installation (

Signature verification of the ISO:

Download both the ISO file and the signature file into the same folder.
Open terminal within this folder.
Run GnuPG’s signature verification tool gpgv to verify iso-signature eg

gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring gnupg-ring:trustedkeys.gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-keys A80582E000067FDD

Followed by

gpgv --keyring trustedkeys.gpg antiX-22_x64-full.iso.sig antiX-22_x64-full.iso

For the above make sure you use the real name of the .iso and .sig you downloaded.



Please seed torrents once you have downloaded. Thanks.
