Thread: Install KDE - New to OpenSUSE

  1. #1

    Question Install KDE - New to OpenSUSE

    I am from the debian world and wanted to try opensuse. I had it install GNOME but would like to get KDE installed as well. I am used to using apt-get install kde. I installed apt in opensuse and updated the sources.list but when I try to use it it doesnt work. I also tried using yast but nothing happens. Is there anything I can type in a shell that will install KDE with dependencies? I can open YAST and see KDE but i really dont want to have to go though all those packages to see what I want and dont want (like languages and stuff). I figure there has got to be an easier way like in debian.

    Thanks

    If you open YaST > Software Management and choose "Patterns" from the drop down menu, then it is just a matter of a single-tick of the KDE3 Desktop to install on your system.

    While you are at it, try to select KDE4 as well it will run nicely parallel to 3.5 !

    I tried to follow your tip - but all i get with "KDE3" are the I18n moduls for KDE3 - no libs, no modules

    In the panel on the left titled "Graphical Environments", scroll down until you see KDE3 Desktop Environment.

    Click the checkbox next to KDE3 Desktop Environment.

    In the lower-right of the Yast2 Window click Accept.
