Deepin Desktop Environment
DDE (Deepin Desktop Environment) is the default desktop environment originally created for the linux Deepin distribution.
To get a minimal desktop interface, you may start by installing group. This will pull all the basic components.
However, it is recommended to also installgroup to get a fully working DDE:
- : Deepin game center to play flash games
- : Deepin video player
- : Deepin music player
- : Deepin screen-shot tools
- : Deepin terminal
To be able to use the integrated network administration, the
NetworkManager.service must be started and enabled.
Launching Deepin Desktop Environment
Via a Display Manager
To use the default DDE's lightdm greeter you have to modify the configuration file under the
[SeatDefaults] section, to state:.
[SeatDefaults] ... greeter-session=lightdm-deepin-greeter
See the xinitrc page for more information.
xinit to start DDE.

startdde in virtual console and see the output. If you see error with file mentioned
libgo.so.9 - ensure you have installed the latest package.
Any upstream or arch packaging related bugs should be reported here. FaSheng is one of the Deepin developers and also a contributor/maintainer for arch-deepin and if you file bug reports on his github page then there's much greater chance that the bug will be fixed. ;-)
