How to install Pantheon and Deepin DE on Fedora 30 Workstation

Fedora 30 Workstation supports Deepin and Pantheon Desktop Environments. However, there are no official Fedora spins for these desktop environments. This article shows how to install and enable Deepin and Pantheon Desktop environments on your Fedora 30 workstation.

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.
