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
exec /usr/bin/gnome-session --session=gnome-classic


Save the file and exit.
