Freedesktop.org houses some of the core programs of the free software desktop
While the daemons are being developed in common, desktop environments like GNOME or KDE SC then each implement their own graphical front-ends to present to their users.
The role of glamor (software).

freedesktop.org (fd.o) is a project to work on interoperability and shared base technology for free software desktop environments for the X Window System (X11) on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. It was founded by Havoc Pennington from Red Hat in March 2000.

There are many development frameworks for X, and this is unlikely to change. The organisation seeks to ensure that differences in development frameworks are not user-visible.

Widely-used open-source X desktop projects—such as GNOME, KDE, and Xfce—are collaborating with the freedesktop.org project. In 2006, the project released Portland 1.0 (xdg-utils), a set of common interfaces for desktop environments.[2]

freedesktop.org was formerly known as the X Desktop Group, and the abbreviation "XDG", remains common in their work.

Hosted projects[edit]

freedesktop.org provides hosting for a number of relevant projects.[3][4] These include:

Also, Avahi (a free Zeroconf implementation) started as a fd.o project but has now moved elsewhere.

Stated aims[edit]

The aim of the project is not to legislate formal standards. Rather, it aims to catch interoperability issues much earlier in the process.

  1. Collect existing specifications, standards and documents related to X desktop interoperability and make them available in a central location;
  2. Promote the development of new specifications and standards to be shared among multiple X desktops;
  3. Integrate desktop-specific standards into broader standards efforts, such as Linux Standard Base and the ICCCM;
  4. Work on the implementation of these standards in specific X desktops;
  5. Serve as a neutral forum for sharing ideas about X desktop technology;
  6. Implement technologies that further X desktop interoperability and free X desktops in general;
  7. Promote X desktops and X desktop standards to application authors, both commercial and volunteer;
  8. Communicate with the developers of free operating system kernels, the X Window System itself, free OS distributions, and so on to address desktop-related problems;
  9. Provide source repositories (git),[5] and CVS[6] web hosting, Bugzilla, mailing lists, and other resources to free software projects that work toward the above goals.
