MeeGo™ Netbook UX 1.0


Provide the MeeGo™ Netbook UX 1.0 experience in Fedora


Please post any queries regarding this feature to the Fedora Mobility mailing list at (you need to be subscribed).

Download and Installation

For rawhide testing of MeeGo™ you can do 'yum install meego-netbook'

Please provide feeback to mini mailing list and report specific bugs against the components in RHBZ.

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 14
  • Last updated: 2010-09-13
  • Percentage of completion: 100%
  • The core MeeGo 1.0 packages are all in Fedora 14 repositories and are available for testing.

Detailed Description

The MeeGo™ Architecture is designed to support multiple platforms and usage models ranging from Netbooks and NetTops to Mobile Internet Devices (MID) and various embedded usage models, such as In Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems. MeeGo Netbook UX is built on the GNOME Mobile platform, extending and enriching it with new technologies like Clutter, GUPnP and libsocialweb. The MeeGo Netbook UX is the user environment that sits of top of Fedora and associated MeeGo core services. The netbook user interface and user interaction model for the target devices then is on top of that. For this feature we will be specifically targetting the Netbook UX.

Benefit to Fedora

Expand the support of MeeGo™ in Fedora for NetBook users. This expands on the existing support we've had for Moblin in Fedora 12 and 13.


There are a number of stages in the scope for this feature:

  1. Update existing packages for the MeeGo 1.0 Netbook UX
  2. Submit all new packages for review
  3. Review changes in architecture for the upstream release.

Test Plan

  1. Build and test individual packages
  2. Test 'yum groupinstall meego-netbook' to ensure we get a working MeeGo Netbook UX 1.0
  3. Testing of the core MeeGo Desktop environment
  4. Testing of MeeGo application functionality.

User Experience

  • Users of the Fedora Meego™ 1.0 Spin would have a much better user experience on their NetBook, NetTop and other small devices.


Contingency Plan

  • Fall back to shipping the Moblin 2.1 release.


Release Notes

MeeGo Netbook UX 1.0 is available in Fedora 14
