Budgie is the flagship desktop of the Solus Project. It focuses on simplicity and elegance and is tightly integrated with the GNOME 3 stack.

The Budgie desktop environment currently is not in the main Gentoo repository; 10.3.1 is available for ~amd64 and ~x86 using the Sabayon overlay. Please report bugs upstream and provide sufficient details (how to reproduce, info, logs, errors, etc).



Budgie currently resides in the Sabayon overlay. Ensure eselect repository or layman has been installed before proceeding with this installation. The Sabayon overlay is also a requirement since Budgie has is not currently included in the main Gentoo repository.


In order to choose a suitable profile list the options available:

root #eselect profile list
  [1]   default/linux/amd64/13.0
  [2]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/selinux
  [3]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop *
  [4]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome
  [5]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd
  [6]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/kde
  [7]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/kde/systemd
  [8]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma
  [9]   default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/plasma/systemd
  [10]  default/linux/amd64/13.0/developer
  [11]  default/linux/amd64/13.0/no-multilib
  [12]  default/linux/amd64/13.0/systemd

Select the appropriate profile, substituting the appropriate profile number (which may vary between configurations):

root #eselect profile set 12

Any packages affected by the profile change need to be rebuilt:

root #emerge --ask --changed-use --deep world


Once eselect repository or layman is installed and the Sabayon overlay added install the Budgie desktop environment by running:

root #emerge --ask gnome-extra/budgie-desktop
