Getting GNOME

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


Fedora provides GNOME straight out of the box – just install or try it live. Fedora Workstation 32 is now available and ships GNOME 3.36.


GNOME can be selected when installing the latest version of openSUSE. The stable version is openSUSE Leap 15.2 and it includes GNOME 3.34. The rolling release of openSUSE Tumbleweed includes GNOME 3.36.


Ubuntu 20.04 LTS includes GNOME 3.36 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, including Arch Linux (GNOME 3.36), Debian (GNOME 3.30) and Gentoo (GNOME 3.36).
