**Pantheon** is the desktop environment used by default on link:https://elementary.io/[elementaryOS].
It builds on GNOME technologies, but utilizes components that were written from scratch in vala, using the GTK+3 toolkit.
In Fedora 30, Pantheon is provided by Fedora as an alternative desktop environment.
|Note that some of the Pantheon packages have been available in earlier Fedora versions. However, Fedora 30 is the first release that provides the whole desktop environment as a package group.|
|To try out Pantheon, install the "Pantheon Desktop" package group, log out, and choose a Pantheon session during login.|
|Fedora 30 provides the **LXQt** lightweight Qt-based desktop environment version 0.14.0. Notable improvements in this release include:|
|`pcmanfm-qt` now supports a split view.|
|The desktop can now show icons such as Computer, Network, the user's Home directory, and Trash. The Trash icon is interactive.|
|Image EXIF data can now be rendered.|
|`lximage-qt` now has a new upload target (ImgBB).|
|`qterminal` now supports custom margins and history based tab switching.|
|All packages have received significant updates to translations.|
|See the 0.14 milestone in the upstream project on link:https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt/milestone/8[GitHub] for more information about changes in this release.|
