Kinoite, a KDE (and now XFCE) version of Fedora Silverblue

This has been fixed. Don’t forget to remove that override now or you will keep using this package forever:

$ sudo rpm-ostree override reset podman podman-plugins

As I previously mentioned, the Rawhide builds from today are the last ones I will be doing.

I will try to keep building branched versions and other variants at least until F35 is released but can not guarantee I’ll keep building them beyond that.

Several sub-project have been started to pick up maintenance of other variants. Please support them if you wish for your preferred DE to be made an official variant!

I’ll be switching most of my focus on improving Fedora Kinoite.


I just hope it keeps the base, the rest is superficial right now

Hi there @Siosm

I’m on F34 Silverblue and want to test Kinoite.

Your message above leaves me a little confused.

The instructions here to install and test kinoite reference Rawhide. But your message above indicates this is no longer maintained.

Is there an active and supported way to test Kinoite?

Hello @ramblurr ,
I think @Siosm was referring to the fact that Kionite has become an official spin, so he will not be able to focus on the other variants (like XFCE for instance) after F35.

This message was about unofficial builds: I’m not longer building unofficial variants for the Rawhide branch. I’m still building unofficial stable variants (F34 right now) and will keep building them for a while.

If you want to test Fedora Kinoite, you can try the official Rawhide builds from Fedora (How to test Fedora Kinoite (official builds only)), or the unofficial stable builds for F34 from me (Current status of Fedora Kinoite (official & unofficial builds)).


I have started first to find a suitable name within the community. The result will be posted today or tomorrow.
Next step has then to follow.

Personally, I expect other spins on F36 or later.


Hello, how are you community? A question for lovers of wm like sway or i3. I want to create an iso based on silverblue but without gnome only with sway. Right now I have sway installed but I want to remove everything from gnome and generate an iso that you recommend? it’s possible? I like the initiative to put a lot of flavors in silverblue but I feel like they forget about those of us who love tiled windows. I would like the community to have a minimal iso for those who want a simple environment like a wm. I read recommendations or suggestions


You can start reading Kinoite, a KDE (and now XFCE) version of Fedora Silverblue - #213 by stbischof and my reply right after. Feel free to ask questions here if you need help to get started.
