Next Steps


Phantom Linux receives almost daily updates. It is strongly advised that you update your system once it is installed and keep the good habit to keep it update. Thus, the first thing to do is launch the App Center and update. When the “linux” package - which is the kernel - is updated, it is strongly advised to reboot, or something might not work properly.

Adding Software

Phantom Linux is an operating system and leaves you the full choice on what additional package you want to install. When you need something, a good starting point is always the App Center. For example, if you need an Office suite, you can install “libreoffice-fresh” in just a few clicks. After your first installation and update, it is usual to prepare your work environment with the applications you need.
