Friendly Reminder

1.deepin 2014.2 RC is strongly recommended to be installed directly on the real machine, so as the gorgeous effect of which could be truly experienced, because Compiz is used as the window manager in deepin 2014.2 RC and its performance is less poor in a virtual machine.

To solve this problem, we will use Gala as the Window Manager in future deepin 2015.

2.Errors occurred when Linux kernel identified parts of the graphics information, so the following problems will exist in some computers:

The problem that nothing can be done when entered the system at the first time after installed deepin system can be solved by restart.
All monitors will be closed after set the display mode to be ”only displayed on ×××” in Control Center, which will be solved by using Super (Window logo) + P to switch to other display modes.
If you have the above problems, please execute the following command in terminal:

xrandr --verbose

Then send the terminal output information to us, we will solve this problem as soon as possible, thank you!
