View Full Version : KDE Spin Users

I was wondering how many people use the KDE spin? Is it a good idea to use a spin like this (I'm thinking about possible issues with getting support for it, etc), as Fedora is really a Gnome centric distro?

Works great for me, support is not an issue at all. Fedora is still fedora whatever desktop you choose to use.

thanks - I am going to try it in VM.

How many? It is the top spin in downloads according to https://spins.fedoraproject.org/

The KDE fan-boi faction in Fedora is large enough and strong enough that this isn't so much a "spin" as an installation option. You should have no problem getting support here.

Thanks Hlinger! One of the main factors in my choosing a distro is the support. With Fedora from my experiences so far, neither support or stability are issues. This F12 is the best one I have come across ("just works")

I've been also thinking of deploying Fedora 13 KDE on my HDD :D
It's just... beautiful...
... oh well, I love open source and community. And also Fedora :D
But there's only one question. Before Fedora 13 came out, I installed Fedora 12. Tried to install it 3 times, only achieved it on the last. And then, suddenly I was out of Fedora. No desktop, no nothing... launching Gnome from command line wouldn't solve it - but then I found it was from my GPU (a nVidia 9300M GS) and nouveau.
Does nouveau work well with my GPU on Fedora 13? Thanks in advance :cool:

You could try a liveCD first in order to make sure, it works with your machine.

I tried KDE Spin for a few days... Do you know how much vanilla KDE is Fedora 13 KDE spin? Do we have workarounds to make it close to a vanila KDE distro?

I would say KDE is pretty vanilla in fedora, except from custom artwork and firefox (openoffice?) integration.
