Install Desktop Environments

Latest response

Hi,
I followed all the instructions online but I failed when I wanted to install Mate Desktop Environment for RHEL 8.
How can I realize it? Or is it impossible?

Hi Farhan,

You can install the MATE desktop environment by adding a COPR repository.
Please note that this is not officially supported and may brake the system ... :)
