JingOS - Installation Process & First look [Feedback request]

Hi all,
with this topic I would like to share screenshots about installation process and the first look at JingOS.

Tips: if you have Windows 10 installed, remember to disable Fast Boot in order to easily install JingOS, see How to disable Fast Startup (Fast Boot) on Windows OS devices to dual boot JingOS.

First of all, in the first boot of JingOS a lockscreen will appear, remember the default PIN is 123456:

The welcome screen is the second step:

The system will ask you an Internet connection, in my example I used a VM so wired connection is the only option available:

User must read and accept terms:

The first boot of JingOS ends:

So, I decided to start the installation process selecting the app shortcut on desktop:

First of all you have to select your language (I selected English cause Italian is not so common here… :rofl: )

Select the right keyboard, various imput methods are available:

And now the user has to choose how to proceed:

You can decide to manually partition it:

So the installation starts:

After some minutes, you can conclude the installation process:

After the reboot, the GRUB allows you to select JingOS:
13 Grub

Again, another wizard appears:

User has to define password:

Again select the connection method:

Finally, the user concluded the installation process and first boot:

After installation, users could open settings:

I discovered also the Plasma setting tool:

Control center:

Notification center:

So, what do you think about the JingOS work in progress development?
Do you have any suggestion about it?
Have a nice day!

List of feedback received:
@Urnyx05 suggest to increse padding arount the text “Notification Center” and change Battery Icon.


If you want a suggestion, increase the padding around the text “Notification Center” and change the battery icon.

Thanks, I added your feedback at the bottom of the topic!

Hello, I tried the ‘live’ USB JingOS on two different Asus laptops, one fairly new w/12GB, one older w/4GB and have the following comments – as a fair newbie only.

USB boots very fast – Nice!
Apps open with decent speed
USB drives do not mount once booted even after setting the switch in ‘System Settings’
Files, Photos, Media Player, Calendar, etc. have no “X” to close the window (Luckily Alt-F4 works) – WPS & KDE terminal have this “X” on the upper right
No ‘shutdown’ other than the halt command in the terminal
Terminal has an annoying spell-checker that often foils commands
RAM usage at 613MB is pretty high for a light OS

Sorry most is negative and I hope I posted in the right category…


Hi @lachelp ,
It is work in progress, all the “Close gestures” must be implemented bu swipe from the bottom to top of the screen.
Fine tuning is expected for final release.

Really like what is working so far. It definitely needs more English support, particularly with the terminal itself. The themeing seems to be slightly broken. When changing things to dark mode, some things break. If I recall correctly I also noticed the lock screen was slightly glitchy sometimes.

Hi @dBurger
are you testing JingOS x86 or JingOS ARM on JingPad A1?

I am testing JingOS x86

Any news for next update JingOS x86?

Tested on Chuwi V10 Plus, overall works fine except bug on brightness slider and apps not stable, still crashing.


Thanks a lot; I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.
But I can’t download the JingOS file! I keep getting a “page not found” error.
What should I do?


I mean, it looks nice on the pictures. But when I want to download it for x86 I get a non-working link per E-Mail. Why not just include the link to an ISO directly in the web page?!?
It would be nice if JingOS would be as easily downloadable as most other Linux distros…
