Welcome to the LXF Wiki Area

This site is intended to be a useful information resource for all visitors, created and maintained in co-operation with the community. The beauty of Wiki is that you can edit it yourself. To edit or create pages, you'll need to register a username -- this only takes a few seconds. This front page is protected; if there is something you wish to change, email

Although no doubt this site will grow organically with all sorts of information, we would like to keep it Linux specific. Inevitably, owing to the pace of change in the computing world, some of the information will date quickly. Please help keep it up-to-date!


  • LXF Tutorials - In-depth guides originally from the magazine
  • LXF HOWTOs - Walthroughs for software and hardware
  • Linux Glossary - A list of terms and software with brief explanations
  • NewbieZone - Guides and FAQs specifically for Linux novices


  • Linux User Groups - Meet up with other Linux users
  • Linux on Laptops - Information about running Linux on your laptop
  • Linux Format - About the magazine
  • [Distros (] - Facts and user opinions on Linux distributions

Wiki sites can be very powerful and useful, but because users have the ability to create and modify them, they can succomb to misuse. Linux Format cannot accept any responsibility for the material on this site. If you spot something you find offensive, libellous or otherwise illegal, you can either edit it yourself and/or contact


Because we have no control over what content may be contained in this site at any one time, there is a chance it could contain offensive material. Parents may wish to monitor or control access to this area, in much the same way as it is appropriate to monitor the use of newsgroups. Please see the LXFWikiGuidelines for info on what is considered acceptable content.
