VMware virtual appliance: Xubuntu 12.04 LTS

We supply only this virtual machine. If you were looking for older virtual applicants like Debian or openSUSE, you may were redirected to this page.

Virtual hardware information

  • 32-bit CPU (runs also on 64-bit host machines)
  • 512 MiB RAM
  • up to 20 GiB hard drive space
  • host computer's CD-ROM access
  • access to USB devices on host system
  • network access (the host computer will share it's connection using NAT)
  • US keyboard layout (can be switched)

Installed software

  • Xubuntu 12.04 LTS system
  • network updates available
  • graphical login enabled
  • window manager: Xfce Desktop Environment
  • VMware tools (copy and paste to host system, easy mouse and keyboard focus, window size is changeable)
  • Seismic Handler as Motif and command line version in 2013a version
  • Seismic Handler eXtended (SHX) in recent release (no version number set yet)

User accounts

  1. "sh", password "ssshhh" (without quotes), automatic login, "sudo" enabled.



Former versions of the virtual machine used the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment on top of an Ubuntu system (AKA Lubuntu). The major advantage of this system is a low disc space footprint in comparison to Xubuntu or Ubuntu. Unfortunately Lubuntu isn't available anymore as long term supported (LTS) release, so we switched to Xubuntu from Seismic Handler release 2013a onwards.
