This is proof of concept project to build a KDE based version of Fedora Silverblue. I called it Kinoite because it had to start with a ‘K’ and Kinoite is a blue mineral.
The resulting desktop only has Firefox and Konsole as main applications installed by default (the minimum for easy Flatpak/Flathub usage).
This has only been tested inside a virtual machine for now, so use at your own risk!
Instructions to try it out on an already installed Fedora Silverblue system:
curl -O https://tim.siosm.fr/downloads/siosm_gpg.pub sudo ostree remote add kinoite https://siosm.fr/kinoite/ --gpg-import siosm_gpg.pub sudo ostree admin pin 0 sudo rpm-ostree rebase kinoite:fedora/28/x86_64/kinoite
Instructions to build your own:
git clone https://pagure.io/fork/siosm/workstation-ostree-config sudo rpm-ostree compose tree --repo=ostree_repo --cachedir=ostree_cache workstation-ostree-config/kinoite.json
The changes are available in the following repositories:
https://pagure.io/fork/siosm/fedora-comps (master) https://pagure.io/fork/siosm/workstation-ostree-config (f28-kinoite branch)
Unfortunately, the current configuration layout makes it hard to switch base packages without duplicating the entire config tree. Thus the Kinoite config is simply a copy of the Silverblue one and is not integrated at all.
Thanks a lot to all of you! The Fedora & Silverblue projects are looking great!
Hope you like it!
