How to install another desktop

I’ve been running deepin and the new version needs a lot of work.
How do I install another desktop?

You just install the packages for the desktop.

We can probably tell you which packages you need if you can share which desktop do you want to install.

I’m in Xfce now. Very plain setup. Maybe just adjust this one to look better.

Otherwise Gnome.

xfce isn’t there :smile:

I guess the assumption is you already had xfce installed.

To install xfce you can use:

sudo pacman -S xfce4

If you want more of the xfce ecosystem you can also install xfce4-goodies

sudo pacman -S xfce4-goodies

or this (will be a more slim package-set and the official EndeavourOS theming)
