Australia’s ThinLinX Pty Ltd has been developing Thin Client and IoT Hardware & Software for over 16 years. More recently we have transitioned to TLXOS Software solutions which allows us to concentrate on developing the best value Thin Client, Digital Signage and IoT Gateway Software for existing high volume hardware such as Raspberry Pi’s, Rock Pi 4’s, Intel and AMD Small Form Factor devices, Re-Purpose PC’s and Laptops
TLXOS is a small down loadable custom Linux based Operating System with minimal hardware requirements needing less than 1GB of RAM and less than 2GB of storage to deliver high performance Desktops using Citrix HDX, VMware Horizon Blast and Microsoft RDP / RemoteFX.
Start your trial today by clicking on the Download Tab above, select a Download Mirror, click on the Version of TLXOS that you want to Trial. You can trial all versions, there is no limitation on multiple trials.
The .exe TLXOS Installers on the ThinLinX Download page are compressed images with win32diskimager built in to make creating SD Card images or USB stick installer images easy, the compressed image also reduces download time.
If you are NOT a Windows user you can still create a TLXOS SD Card or a USB stick installer by decompressing the .exe file using a program called 7z
Just run the command below on the .exe file, this will extract the TLXOS .img file. You can then use “dd” or https://www.balena.io/etcher/ to write the image file
“7z x filename.exe”
If you wish you should also download the ThinLinX Management Software (TMS) which is Free when used with any version of TLXOS. Many Raspberry Pi’s are shipped with a SD Card already installed with the NOOBS boot loader, TLXOS installation is now also available via the NOOBS boot loader. Just boot your RPi’s while tapping the Shift Key, select TLXOS from the OS List, click on install.
During the installation the TLXOS installer automatically Registers the 30 Day Free Trial with the ThinLinX License Server, you must be connected to the Internet with a DHCP Server on the local Network for the Free Trial to successfully Register your device.
See YouTube demo below explaining how to create a SD Card version of TLXOS for the Raspberry Pi using the ThinLinX SD Card solution
Creating a TLXOS USB Stick installer which is used for Intel based devices and Re-Purpose PC or Laptops is identical to the above demo with the only difference being that a different TLXOS installer image is downloaded and then the image is written to a USB Stick instead of an SD Card
ThinLinX Management Software (TMS) is a very powerful, scalable Management Console that allows TLXOS devices located anywhere in the World to be configured, updated via Hotfixes, or have complete Firmware upgrades installed from one central location. TMS consists of a TLXOS client side component and TMS itself, the latest TLXOS client side component is always integrated in each TLXOS release, this may be updated from time to time via a TMS client upgrade. TMS is available for Windows and Linux, TMS is also integrated into TLXADM which is a Free Virtual Appliance used for administration and Desktop Shadowing
ThinLinX has just released a new much improved version 8.2.1 of TMS which has a corresponding 8.2.0 TLXOS client side which is already integrated into the current TLXOS 4.9.0 release. This allows access to all the new features of TMS 8.2.1
Download TLXOS for a 30 day Free trial, which is available now for all Raspberry Pi devices, Intel and AMD Small Form Factor devices, Re-Purpose PC and Laptops
Between our Major releases such as the above, FreeRDP, Citrix and VMware often release updated versions of FreeRDP, Citrix Receiver and VMware Horizon Client. ThinLinX creates updates which we call Hotfixes that allow our customers to install the latest Citrix Receiver, VMware Horizon clients, RDP clients and additional features from time to time.
Dual screen capability is available via TLXOS for the new Raspberry Pi 4, Small Form Factor Devices and our x86 Re-Purpose PC & Laptop solution.
