Fedora 20 Cinnamon, KDE and MATE screen shots

Fedora 20 has finally been released. It is code-named Heisenbug.

As with each release, installation images for the major desktop environments, hardware platforms, and the Cloud, are accounted for.

Aside from installation images for the GNOME 3 desktop, installation images for KDE, MATE, LXDE and Xfce desktops are also available. Fans of the Cinnamon and E17 desktops have to install them from the bfo, DVD, netinstall CD image or from an existing installation of Fedora.

While a detail review is in the works, this article brings you screen shots from test installations of Fedora 20 Cinnamon, KDE and MATE desktops.

Fedora 20 Cinnamon:. Cinnamon 2.0 is the version of the desktop that you’ll get on Fedora 20. It’s the latest stable edition. This screen shot shows its login screen.

    You write: ‘Click on any image in this gallery to see the other aspects of the KDE desktop on Fedora 20.’ So where are Homerun or SimpleWelcome then? I’ve just downloaded Fedora 20 and neither is available. How do you install them?

    • finid says:

      Both packages are not installed by default, so you have to install them yourself.

      For Homerun, install the “homerun” package from Apper, the graphical package manager. You can also install it from the command line by typing yum install homerun.

      For SimpleWelcome, install the “rosa-launcher” package, either from Apper or the command line.

      To use either after installation, you have to add their widgets to the panel.
      IF you don’t know how, right-click on the widget and select Panel options -> Add widgets. For Homerun, search for a widget of the same name. Ditto for SimpleWelcome.
