Alpine Linux has no official desktop; older versions used Xfce, but now, all GUI and graphical interfaces are optional. This page is an attempt at being a jumping off page for everything you need to have a decent workstation.

Graphical user interfaces (GUI)

Display Server

Desktop environments

Window managers

Stacking (floating) window managers

Tiling (dynamic) window managers

Fonts

Note: Depending on the Desktop environment/window manager fonts may or may not be installed automatically.

Networking

Printer

Sound

Note: If you are unsure, PipeWire is recommended.
