UKUI is my Deepin Replacement

I’m the type of Linux user that likes to experiment. Just not satisfied with standard “run of the mill” desktop environments.

Check out UKUI …

History: I was using Deepin but way too many bugs especially since version 20!
With UKUI installed and my preferred software applications installed (Total Packages = 865)

Other than installing the package group, what was involved in setup?

Qt, so not for me…

Yes, some more information would be nice. :slight_smile:

I’m interested as my prime partner is NOT happy about the looks of the new Deepin, and frankly installing that on her laptop would be outright cruel from my side.

I found this “manual” for installing UKUI on Arch, but it might be better to get it from GIT?

Not for me, yay -S ukui will install, but all my plasma panels are displayed. Looks basic, not many options (for a plasma user :rofl: ).

I’m going to look into this some more. Some people were saying it looks like Windows, which I’m not too crazy about.

My installation of UKUI was done from (base installation) of EndeavourOS.
It’s really very simple to install with pacman.

sudo pacman -S ukui

In fact you can install and try it out from your existing EndeavourOS environment and switch in window display manager. In my case I’m using lightdm.
All I can say is I personally like this “new” UKUI environment. I realize it might not be everyones cup of tea …
I always install a Dock in all my desktop environment such as Plank or Docky anyways.

Linux is about unlimited choice

Plasma is about unlimited choices too :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I will try UKUI when I am finished configuring Plasma :wink:
