Can you install Deepin Desktop Environment on LMDE?

Post by drumBE » Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:45 pm

Like I ask in the topic title: Can you install Deepin Desktop Environment on LMDE3 and how you do it?
I have found this on the net: https://www.tecmint.com/install-linux-d ... inux-mint/
But is it the same procedure in LMDE3'cindy'?

LMDE 3 is based on Debian Stretch. Deepin packages don't appear in Debian until Debian Buster. Buster is the future release of Debian (likely the package base for LMDE 4).

Mind that the linked tutorial is for a long time ago and won't work as written (if at all) with any currently supported version of Linux Mint or Ubuntu.

LMDE 3 has just released so no, LMDE 4 isn't in the "neat future". Debian Buster is planned for a mid 2019 release, though they don't release until ready. LMDE 4 is at minimum a year away.
