Thread: how to switch from gnome to kde

    Default how to switch from gnome to kde

    Not sure if this is the correct place in the forum to post this but figured it was closer to what i want than the others.

    I just installed opensuse11.4 from a livecd and would like to know how to change between the distros.
    Not sure if I worded that right seeing as i am not 100 percent clear what a distro is. This is my first day ever on linux.

    I think it would worthwhile for you to read this guide:

    Concepts - openSUSE

    KDE and Gnome are graphical desktop environments. This guide (written for openSUSE 11) will show you how to use the YaST package manager to install a new desktop environment:

    Suse & OpenSuse Tips How to install Gnome/KDE Desktop Environment on OpenSuse 11

    A thread on the same:

    screw this i think i am just going to do a dvd iso install instead of a livecd install. I cant do anything and its really frustrating! I cant even perform as simple a task as getting vuze or pandora desktop to install properly
