Getting GNOME

GNOME 3 is available to install through most GNU/Linux distributions. Many offer the chance to try a demo before you install.

Fedora

Fedora provides GNOME 3 straight out of the box – just install or try it live. Fedora Workstation 27 is now available and ships GNOME 3.26.

openSUSE

GNOME 3 can be selected when installing the latest version of openSUSE. The stable version is openSUSE Leap 42.3 and it includes GNOME 3.20. The rolling release of openSUSE Tumbleweed includes GNOME 3.26.

Ubuntu

Ubuntu GNOME 17.10 includes GNOME 3.26 with minor alterations. If you install gnome-session, you can also choose to launch a pristine GNOME from the login screen.

Many other distributions also include GNOME 3, including Arch Linux (GNOME 3.26), Debian (GNOME 3.22) and Gentoo (GNOME 3.22).
