Detailed Description

There are a bunch of bugfixes and major translation updates in Deepin Desktop 15.11. See this for full list (in Chinese).

The Deepin Desktop follows a rolling update way, so we are targeting at 15.11 at the moment, and will possible pull in other fixes if needed.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora stays in sync with upstream and gets the latest features and bug fixes.

Scope

  • Proposal owners: DeepinDE packages are already packaged and built in Fedora Rawhide (Fedora 30).
  • Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Release engineering: #8003 (a check of an impact with Release Engineering is needed)
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)

Upgrade/compatibility impact

How To Test

You can install the Deepin Desktop Environment in Fedora like below.

If you don't have other desktop installed before, sudo dnf install xorg-x11-server-Xorg. Otherwise, just do the following

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install deepin-desktop
sudo dnf install deepin-calendar deepin-calculator deepin-editor deepin-image-viewer deepin-picker deepin-screenshot deepin-system-monitor 

And try your normal tasks on any desktop environment.

In the interim, if you prefer to experience without installing, you can try the unofficial LiveCD we built. The are available in the following folder

https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/fzug/ISO/fedora/deepin-desktop/

Please note, for the ISO version of 20190116, we disabled SELinux in the Live ISO to workaround a known bug by the time of generating.
