Looking to try out a new operating system?



Quickly download, create and run VM of any#TODO operating system.

For now yad not work under wayland correctly

Until this will be solved upstream use just quickfzf TUI under wayland! It's even quicker and easier to use. But don't have that nice distro icons you never heard about.. (or no?)

LinuxTux required...

Click on Hop for latest download

As a base excellent quickemu (Link to project page)

Developed in English and translated into Czech language.

Welcome translations!

Why am I doing it?

Because I wanna learn

  • Linux

  • Bash

  • yad

  • project management

And contribute to open source

play with Quickemu

And easily add new distros to it

How to run DistroHopper?

You need fullfill the requirement first...

Requirements (For running VMs)

Installing Requirements

For Ubuntu, Arch and nixos systems the ppa, AUR or nix packaging will take care of the dependencies. For other host distributions or operating systems it will be necessary to install the above requirements or their equivalents.

If you install DistroHopper, it should take care of dependencies on Arch, Debian, Ubuntu, openSuse and Fedora

For DistroHopper to work you need

wget yad fzf

quickemu is included

For adding new distros, or adding/improving translations you will need also meld.

How to install DistroHopper?

You need get copy of distrohopper

If you want more stable experience, download latest release from

GitHub or SourceForge SourceForge

If you want latest developer version... (could have bugs and break anytime)

I am usually run DistroHopper as:

./dh m r s l && ./dh i && dh g
