Deepin and Pantheon on Fedora 30

Fedora 30 released today comes with Deepin and Pantheon desktop support. In this article, we’ll show you how to enable each of these desktop environments without any hassle.

Fedora ships with GNOME desktop as default DE and several Fedora spins come prepackaged with other desktop environments including KDE, Cinnamon, Xfce, and more. Note that Deepin and Pantheon are not available as Fedora spins, but must be installed using DNF.

Let’s start with enabling Pantheon on your Fedora 30 workstation.
