    • Ravi Saive says:


      I don’t think so, because this article is old and the new version is Deepin 15.5. Give me a day to update this article with latest instructions to install Deepin Desktop on recent releases of Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

    After 15 years of Linux use, I LOVE Linux Deepin. I started when Mandriva was Mandrake, moved to SuSE (now OpenSuSE,) to Ubuntu, to PCLOS, to Mint, and now here I am on Deepin. Feels much more polished than anything I’ve used before and it’s only getting better.

    This isn’t to try and get you to switch distros, much like attempting to convince a Windows or Mac user to come over to Linux, it’s not what I do. What works for you works for you. But, if anything, at least install VirtualBox or something and download the ISO and give it a try, or use Unetbootin to make a LiveUSB stick and play around. It’s WELL worth it!

    I tried to install DDE in ubuntu 12.04 lts 32 bit. but i get the following error and it does not install. please let me know if I am doing anything wrong.

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    “The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    dde-meta-core : Depends: session-migration but it is not installable
    Depends: deepin-desktop-environment but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: deepin-desktop-environment-plugins but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: deepin-session-fastup but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: deepin-system-tray but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.”

    Thank You,

    How I can remove this from Ubuntu?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      To remove Linux Deepin from Ubuntu, use the following command.

      $ sudo apt-get remove dde-meta-core
      • Demetris says:

        I already try that! But with out any luck… After downloading that Desktop Manager my software center does not respond at all. I also try to remove the default Desktop Manager “Unity” and try to install it again from the begging, but again with out any luck. I get so, that I need to try, the following command.

        $ sudo apt-get remove dde-meta-core*

        Thanks for the reply anyway.

        Hi, I had problems with Deepin Desktop Environment installed on Ubuntu 13.04

        At some point the lsb-release had been changed to Linux Deepin 12.12, to me it seams a little bit invasive. [was it some script by Deepin ?]

        I wanted to try DDE, and not to get Deepin Distribution, I’ll give it a try when is more compatible with pre existing enviroment.

        Are there some other commands to completely remove DDE?
