Let’s Start With New Deepin Tool

Deepin OS 15.5

Installing Deepin and using it is very easy even for a no-brainer like me. Thank’s for its striking design and intuitive GUI which aims to provide an elegant, user-friendly and reliable operating system. And that even gets easier by the presence of new deepin repair tool, that we can use for, well… repairing deepin.

Let’s watch Deepin repair Tools in action:

Deepin Repair is a tool to help users quickly fix some issues in deepin, including:

  • boot repairing
  • hard disk detecting
  • disk cleaning
  • DPKG repairing
  • privilege repairing
  • password reset.

Deepin Repair can run on both deepin Live system and the real environment.  When you can’t find boot menu, have privilege error or forgot login password, you can’t enter deepin desktop. That’s when you need to go into a Live system at first to run Deepin Repair. Sounds hassle-free, right?

Deepin 15.5 Update

Background of What Deepin Is

The development of Deepin started in 2004 at a fast rate by Wuhan Deepin Technology Co., Ltd, a Chinese company. Debian is used as Deepin base while its previous versions (pre-Deepin OS15.5) based on Ubuntu.

Its desktop environment called DDE (Deepin Desktop Environment) which is based on the Qt 5 toolkit. Its home-grown applications, like Deepin Software Centre, DMusic and DPlayer and now Deepin Repair are tailored to the “average” user.

If you happen to feel familiar with the description above, perhaps because you’ve used it before when it’s called Linux Deepin, Hiweed GNU/Linux. Ring a bell?

What’s included in the last update:

  • DTK to version 2.0.6.1-1 fixed the issue that no “Help” entry to view manual;
  • Deepin Boot Maker to version 2.0.4.3-1, fixed the issue that it cannot start in live system;
  • Deepin Repair to version 1.0.1-1, fixed the issue that no icon shows for the directory.

Let’s watch the video below:

It is amazing to see popular Linux sites come out with lists of “best distros” and keep missing on Deepin and Manjaro. It feels like they don’t want the public to know about those. In the case of deepin, as I already read, THIS by far is the best Linux distribution I have ever tried, Extremely user-friendly, beautifully design and countless options when it comes to utilities. My only complaint with it is that the software versions on the app-market always run little behind to pretty much everybody. I had every possible thing I can think of when I installed it, everything native and available on my first run. “CROSSOVER” is a life saver. – deepin user.
