About the Directory

The directory is a user-contributed and -reviewed database of software applications that run on the Linux operating system; Linux-compatible hardware; and books covering the Linux ecosystem. As time goes on, and the directory becomes more complete, it will be an invaluable resource for Linux users of all experience levels.

Adding a listing is very simple. Navigate to the section into which you want to add a listing and follow these steps:

  1. Click the Add your listing here link. This will open the Add Listing page.
  2. Fill in the information on the form. You can add as much information as you want, though the website URL for the directory entry is required.

    Note: use the Book Description and ISBN fields when you add a book listing, but use Specifications when describing hardware or software.
  3. Click Submit. A site administrator will review the listing and approve it for publication.

Adding your own reviews is even easier. Just navigate to the listing you want to review.

  1. Click Submit Review.
  2. Add your information. Be honest, but also try to be helpful.
  3. Click Submit. A site administrator will moderate the review and approve it for publication.

The Linux Foundation is pleased to provide this service for the Linux community, though we don't endorse any one product over another. Items submitted from other user communities that are known to work well with Linux have been placed in the Directory. This is by no means a complete list, but it should help get things going.

Remember, this is a user directory. If you agree or disagree with assessments, you can log in and give your own review on the matter! Reviews can be as positive or negative as you want. All we ask is that you refrain from flames, trolls, and profane language. Users are solely responsible for all materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, that users upload, post, e-mail, transmit, or otherwise make available on our sites.

    HELP I purchased a Telikin system last summer and I am finally getting around to install my printer HP Deskjet 1000 j110a that was shipped and assured as compatible, but know find that with 44 days left on my warranty, that is not the case! I have spoken with HP support and was given the ph# 1-415-723-9709 and the options get you only to someone's voicemail and I need help now PLS call cell # 330-310-5081 and I will answer and if I am home at that time I hope to end the mystery and know if I was misled. Thanks for a hurried response. Laurlie (just like Charlie)
