It’s no wonder why so many Distros are not that interested in the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE) – Gorgeous but problematic, IMHO. Also tested it on Manjaro (they *HATE* it!!), but doing a post on the DDE with Manjaro was a waste of time.

Basically, on the tests of the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE) up to this point, it’s ‘Just another Pretty Faceat best.

Have been testing it on Fedora 33 Cinnamon Desktop Spin which is at least as gorgeous of a DE, but is a thousand times more stable ‘n reliable than the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE). Fact is I sometimes need to boot into the Cinnamon DE first in order to get everything working right, e.g. Wi-Fi USB adaptor, sound, etc. Shutdown button always works, but other little aggravating problems like the sound sometimes working ‘n sometimes not working keep showing up. Fedora has been slowly moving away from the DDE, sorta like Manjaro has, IMHO.

Adding DDE to Fedora 33 requires using the terminal ‘n I forget what commands are needed to get to this:

I’m a Fulltime Root User on Fedora so no need to be interrupted by annoying OS popup requests looking for ‘Pesky Passwords’, i.e. all I need to enter at the terminal to now install the DDE is “dnf install @deepin-desktop-environment”:

DDE then ends up with this old looking Control Center on the right:

Ends up with ‘tHaT’ instead of the newer manageable Control Center that is in the center:

I find that newer looking one in the center to be much easier to move around in, and to also work with the settings in it. I don’t think Fedora offers that newer looking Control Center.

Fedora Cinnamon Spin is my #2 ranked Linux Distro ‘n the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE) would only make ‘Life wid‘ Fedora miserable.

LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
