How to install Gnome desktop in F22?

As I mentioned in a different question, I upgraded with fedup to 22, and now KDE is locking up on me frequently. As a result, I thought I'd try Gnome. At the login screen, I have (this is from memory, sorry) Default, LDX, Openbox, and plasma. Nothing about Gnome specifically. If I use Default, it seems to start to login, but then it goes back to the login screen. It seems like I may not have Gnome installed? Does anyone know how I can check, and if I don't, what packages I need to install?

(I've been using LDX, which seems okay, but I think Gnome might be better.)

You need to do:

sudo dnf groupinstall gnome

Unfortunately, I cannot downvote the answer yet but no, this is not the answer. It looks like our friends at Fedora have forgotten to create a install group for Gnome.

Well you can install gnome with group install "Fedora Workstation" it used to be group instal "Gnome Desktop"
