This project is been rebooted, to follow the new updates have a look at the GitHub repository kiwix-live

The aim of this project is to create a Live CD of Kiwix which is a live CD of Ubuntu with Kiwix on it. You simply have to boot on the CD/DVD/USB and login (kiwix/kiwix) an you will be able to use kiwix.


Here is an improvments list concerning this idea:

  • Cristian
    • find a better graphics for desktop background (if you will)
    • find a better graphics for login background (at least add the info about default username and password)
    • new splash screen (more complicated) ?
    • add a readme file on the desktop
    • maybe make a window with the README pop up at login.
  • Kelson
    • change the splash screen
    • Document the live CD creation process
    • Be able to do the same but with a scriptable solution
    • Remove the login windows
    • Include a pre-indexed content
    • Remove all the unnecessary stuff/binaries from the CD (please list here: Live CD/Binaries to remove)
    • Launch automatically Kiwix in fullscreen at the start
