Fedora 17 KDE Dolphin ROSA Theme

Fedora 17, code-named Beefy Miracle, was released yesterday for all to download and use. Aside for the main edition, which uses the GNOME 3 desktop environments, installation images for three main Spins were also released. These are for KDE, LXDE and Xfce.

Specialized Spins for Security, Scientific-KDE, Design-suite, SoaS, Games, Electronic-lab and Robotics were also released. It is very unlikely that I will review these, but there will be reviews of the main edition and KDE Spin. While the reviews are still being baked, here are a few screen shots from test installations of the main edition and KDE Spin for your viewing pleasure.

The test installations from which these screen shots were taken were installed using the Live CD images of both editions. For the GNOME edition, this is what you are presented with after booting into the Live desktop. Like what you see in Ubuntu, but slightly more visually appealing.

  1. How did you remove the active window button from the top panel? I’ve tried Panel-Docklet but the one thing holding me back from using it is the fact I couldn’t figure out how to remove the window buttons from the top panel.
