How to Install GUI on Fedora



The Fedora Workstation is a lightweight, easy-to-use operating system for desktops and laptops with a wide range of tools useful for both developers and makers. Linux Fedora Server is an advanced operating system that incorporates the latest data center technology. The GUI in fedora makes it easy for users to perform tasks. By choosing the appropriate environment group from the Available Environments list, we can install a Fedora GUI environment. GNOME is Fedora’s default desktop environment. You can choose to install environments like KDE Plasma Desktop or Xfce if you prefer another desktop environment than GNOME. Here’s how we install GNOME on Fedora.






For Fedora systems to be registered with VPSie, you need to create a VPSie account if you don’t have one already.

 

 

 

To get started, run the following command to install the desktop:

 

 

# dnf -y group install "Basic Desktop" GNOME

 

 

Be patient, it will take some time.

 

 

 

 

 

After installing Desktop, re-login as the common user and start the session as follows.

 

 

# startx
# vi ~/.xinitrc - Open the file and add the following content
export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME-Classic:GNOME
export GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=classic
exec /usr/bin/gnome-session --session=gnome-classic

 

Save the file and exit.
