Referencing the wiki page "Portal:Deepin/Installation", currently, the DDE Desktop Environment is well adapted for openSUSE Leap 15.3 and above.


Warning Deepin Desktop has some security issues, so please avoid deploying it in critical environments.


1. openSUSE ISO Installation

Download the openSUSE ISO from the following link:



During the installation, it is recommended to select the GNOME desktop edition (avoid installing the KDE desktop edition to prevent conflicts with the DDE desktop environment). Choose the system version as shown in the image below:




2. Installing the DDE Desktop Environment

Deepin Desktop is supported by openSUSE officially. You can configure the repository on Leap by using the following command in the terminal:


sudo zypper ar -f https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Deepin/openSUSE_Leap_15.3/X11:Deepin.repo


For openSUSE Tumbleweed users, use the following command. Note that the new DDE porting is not yet completed and not suitable for regular users:


sudo zypper ar -f https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Deepin:/Factory/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/X11:Deepin:Factory.repo


To install the DDE desktop environment, use the following command in the terminal:


sudo zypper in -t pattern deepin


After the installation is complete, restart the system. On the login screen, click on the settings button and choose the Deepin desktop environment.
