Thread: How to install DEEPIN desktop env on OPENSUSE15.4

    Default How to install DEEPIN desktop env on OPENSUSE15.4

    I see that OPENSUSE 15.4 should have DEEPIN desktop environment available to select.

    The wiki says "Deepin Desktop have been brought into openSUSE Official, you can install it directly on Tumbleweed and Leap 15.4+"

    When I did try to install there is no option that says DEEPIN or MATE for that matter.

    Any help or hints please.

    How did you try? In YaST software management it should be easy to find under "Graphical Environments". Check the box in the left column. When you do, you should see most boxes checked over on the right. You can add or remove those on the right side, then at the bottom click "Accept" to have those selected installed.

    "deepin" is an entire linux distro not a desktop environment to be installed into another linux distro. You need to run deepin OR openSUSE for your main linux. I did run deepin as vm in openSUSE for a test. Not very impressed so I deleted it. I don't know what you saw regarding deepin being installed as a desktop.

    To load mate, which is the desktop I use, open yast software management. Click on "view". Click on "patterns". Page down and you willl see mate desktop environment. Click and install.

    You may run the Deepin distro, or you may add the Deepin environment to Leap. I did what I described before composing comment #2, except I aborted instead of applying.

    Provide link if you want help.

    If this page https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Deepin
    then it tells

    It can be installed in openSUSE with the community support now. This page is a user guide for openSUSE distribution.

    Warning! Deepin Desktop has some security issues, Please don't deploy Deepin Desktop in anywhere important!
    And

    Configure repositories

    Deepin Desktop have been brought into openSUSE Official, you can install it directly on Tumbleweed and Leap 15.4+. But you should configure repositories first on Leap.
    Configure repo and go on.

    For openSUSE Leap 15.4 run the following as root:
    Code:
    zypper addrepo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:Deepin/openSUSE_Leap_15.4/X11:Deepin.repo
    zypper refresh
    zypper install patterns-deepin-deepin

    No such action was required to show deepin packages to me in yast2 sw_single on 15.4. It's in standard repos. All prep I did for composing comment #2 was zypper ref, then open YaST2 and scroll down to "Graphical Environments".

    Well, YaST is very able in doing that itself when needed. No need to revert to the command line first before using the GUI.

    First choose the Patterns view from the >View menu. YaST > Software > Software Management starts in the Search view and there is not much to scroll down to "Graphical Environments" there.

    No "reversion" involved. The superuser terminal was already open for other reasons. Plus, zypper ref does a superior job of informing of what's happening, using the whole window or screen instead of frustratingly inaccurate graphics. The only reason I opened YaST2 was to be sure of what I should write in answer.

    Yes, but your answer then does forward a confusing message IMHO. Either you advice people how to do someting in the CLI, or, when you think the user is a more GUI loving person, you tell him how to do in YaST. Now the OP may think he has to open the CLI and use zypper to be able to use YaST.

    My message wasn't directed to an OP, but to an unnecessary, and likely undesirable, action, suggested by a different poster, concisely recounting something I did do, not suggesting something anyone else should do.
