Linux Deepin Software Center App Installation

Linux Deepin is a desktop distribution that is based on Ubuntu. This is a new distribution to me, new in the sense that I have never used or reviewed it. The latest release, Linux Deepin 11.12.1, provides an opportunity for me to find out what it has to offer.

Though I tend to stay away from publicly reviewing distributions that use the default GNOME 3 desktop, I evaluate them privately and if I come across one that has been modified to look like a true desktop operating system, then I will take the time to do what it takes to publish a review on it. Linux Deepin falls into that category. So expect a review of Linux Deepin soon.

While I am still working on the review, here are a few screen shots for your viewing pleasure. If you cannot wait for the review, and want to take it for a spin yourself, download a 32- or 64-bit installation ISO image from here. This first screen shot is of the default desktop. I do not like that wallpaper.

But that is not a big deal. There are dozens more to choose from. This one, from my perspective, is better than the default.

Unlike most other distributions that are based on Ubuntu, Linux Deepin has its own graphical package manager – Deepin Software Center or DSC. Though certain aspects of it are still rough around the edges, it is better than Ubuntu’s Software Center in many ways. This is a screen shot of the top section of the main view.

DSC is themable, and there are six themes to choose from. So, you can pick a theme that is in line with your style or mood.

Just to show one of the six themes. Not my favorite, but so you know what DSC looks like with a different skin.

This screen shot shows mulitple applications being download concurrently. That is one cool feature of DSC, and it does that without requesting authentication for each application that you want to install.

  1. Hi I tried to install but I can not pass the window that show the languages selection, I mean it shows the window where I should type my name, password etc..but as soon as It appears it returns to the language selection window. Further I realized that when it reads the usb it shows “error: -22”, I tried with two diferents usb but still the same fail

  2. HEllo, im trying to install deeping alongside win8,but when i want install deeping, the window where the partitions appear, it doesn’t show the partitions, just only one of 111.10Gb (I have a SSD), 50Gb for windows, 45Gb for Storage, 18Gb for Deepin and none of this are showed.

    I just need help,

    Pd: i’m from Colombia- sorry for my bad english.

    1. If you click on the Expert mode button, do you see the partitions. Did you create the partitions for Deepin already?

      Btw, what brand of PC are you trying to install it on?

  3. I follow the steps as you state but when restarting the pc after installation of Deepin I get blue screen windows recovery options and other options, but not the menu to select Deepin me appears. I have Windows 8 UEFI. I hope you can help me in google as no detailed information on installing Depping 2014 UEFI systems.


    1. That image of the Windows partition manager does not show a UEFI system partition, so I have to assume that Windows 7 is installed on MBR partitions.

      If that’s the case and you’re booting the UEFI-aware version of the installer, which the second image shows that you are, then it’s no surprise that the installation is failing.

      If the existing partition table is MBR, use the non-UEFI version of the installer. The 3rd image in this article shows how to access the non-UEFI version of the isntaller.

      Btw, you may post images in the forum.
