dcantrel / cde


The Common Desktop Environment (CDE) is a desktop environment for Unix and OpenVMS, based on the Motif widget toolkit. It was part of the UNIX 98 Workstation Product Standard, and was long the "classic" Unix desktop associated with commercial Unix workstations.

After a long history as proprietary software, CDE was released as free software on 6 August 2012, under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2 or later. Since its release as free software, CDE has been ported to Linux and BSD derivatives.

Installation Instructions

This CDE package is maintained at https://github.com/dcantrell/cderpm/. The intent is to provide a single installable RPM ("cde") for use on Fedora, CentOS, and RHEL that is a drop-in secondary desktop environment. You should be able to select CDE as a valid session from the default login manager. Any bugs or suggestions should be submitted on the github project page.
