Design Suite

Design Suite is a Fedora Spin based on Gnome Shell showcasing the design-related tools used by Design Team in addition of audio and video editing. More information is located on Fedora Spin website.


Design Software SIG has three channels for communication:

  • The mailing list,
  • The current wiki page for suggesting design software, the need of reviewing packages or joining the SIG,
  • the IRC channel located on for designers and for packagers.




A way to contribute is to package user favorite sofware. Here is the process below:


This section tracks the latest upstream development packaged in individual Fedora People repository. Using them wil help exposing bug, and exploring new features without disturbing the main Fedora repositories. In addition, the resulting source RPM will teach upstream about the good practice of packaging. To use these repository for testing purpose:

  • access to these links below,
  • put the repo file in into /etc/yum.repos.d/
  • execute the update using either Software Update or input the command in terminal sudo yum update.
