Integration of other desktops

desktop

#1

gnome is at the moment the default desktop.
But will be other desktops added step by step e.g. mate,kde,xfce,cinnamon or budgie?

so at the end there is a freedom to choice which desktop you want use . This could be made during the installation progress.

What’s your opinion?:wink:

I do not think this is possible for technical reasons for now, even if I guess rojig could be useful for that. There is regular Fedora for that. And having a dozen or so of images is just gonna make everything more complex and requires much more tests.

I am definitely advocating to have a minimal version where a desktop environment can be added on top. Ideally, on installation time you could just be asked which DE you want (if at all), and then it creates an rpm-ostree out of that which is your base or something.

Other DEs could just be not supported but it’d be nice if you didn’t have to go for full-on GNOME right away. Personally, I prefer to not have a DE and just build my own out of scripts, a file browser, a window manager, and some two or three other apps.

Okay, yes it’s important to have a smooth and minial version. During the installation you could be asked which DE you want.

Ah ok. Well I am a KDE fan;)


#5

Have you seen this already?

Oh, I haven’t seen it yet. That’s great. So, I can just add the KDE;)
