Linux Deepin is an Ubuntu based distribution which aims to be fast, elegant, beautiful, and easy to use. It has polished look and feel which makes us happy to use it. Linux Deepin is available as standaalone distribution so you can install it as a new system. Otherwise, if you don't want to remove the current installation of Ubuntu, you can install its Desktop Manager to gain some experiences using Linux Deepin desktop. Please don't install Linux Deepin Desktop on your production system because it may broke your system.


Adding Linux Deepin repository
First thing first, you have to add Linux Deepin repository to Ubuntu, simply open the "/etc/apt/sources.list" file with your favorite text editor or simply execute the following command to do so:
  • sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Then, append the following lines to the end of the file:
  • ## Linux DeepIn Repository
  • deb http://packages.linuxdeepin.com/deepin raring main non-free universe
  • deb-src http://packages.linuxdeepin.com/deepin raring main non-free universe

If you did it right, the "sources.list" file should look like this:


Next, we have to authenticate packages come from Linux Deepin repository by executing the following command:
  • wget http://packages.linuxdeepin.com/deepin/project/deepin-keyring.gpg
  • gpg --import deepin-keyring.gpg
  • sudo gpg --export --armor 209088E7 | sudo apt-key add -

Once completed, it's time to do repository update:
  • sudo apt-get update

Now, install the Linux Deepin Desktop package by executing this command:
  • sudo apt-get install dde-meta-core

It will download a lot of files so please be patient while the package manager installs Linux Deepin Desktop. Once completed, you may logout and select "Deepin" session from the login screen.





Good luck!
