Installation (mockup)

GNOME 3 is available in two groups:

  • gnome contains the core desktop environment and applications required for the standard GNOME experience.
  • gnome-extra contains various optional tools such as a media player, a calculator, an editor and other non-critical applications that go well with the GNOME desktop.

Note that installing only gnome-extra will not pull the whole gnome group by dependencies: if you really want everything you must explicitly install both groups.


Install gnome from the official repositories
