Distrobox is a set of scripts that automates creating GPU-acceleration Linux containers that seamlessly integrate with the rest of exozyme.


To get started, run distrobox enter. The default container image is Fedora, so you can use dnf for package management. For more details, read the ArchWiki page and the Distrobox website. There's also a section about running graphical apps on the ArchWiki page.

Tips and tricks

Running WMs or DEs

You can install a window manager or desktop environment inside the container and use it in remote desktop with ~/.xinitrc. See the window managers article for more information. This may require enabling systemd inside the container.

code-server integration

To integrate Distrobox with code-server, change your code-server terminal startup command to distrobox enter.
