    11.3 Can not install Gnome after Install with KDE
    This is a thread for 11.3 but it should work for 11.4 as well (some modifications maybe required).

    Btw this is a section of the forum in which You tell people how to do things not ask questions You might get better help asking in the get technical help -> applications section.

    Best regards,

    The initial post is in the wrong area. @ ilAli , if you had looked where you were posting, you would have seen words in LARGE LETTERS at the top of the page asking one NOT to post in this area.

    In 30 minutes to an hour, I am going to move this thread to applications area. I need to wait that long so that this warning post gets out across the NNTP gateway. For web users I will leave a link to the new area for 1 week.

    I ask that both web and NNTP users do NOT reply to this thread until AFTER it has been moved to applications. I will advise NNTP users when it has been moved. Look for a reply from me, to the original post, in the 'applications' NNTP area, after the thread has been moved.

    Thankyou for your understanding.

    This is a thread for 11.3 but it should work for 11.4 as well (some modifications maybe required).
    This thread has been moved from being inappropriately in the HOW-TO/FAQ area to our APPLICATIONS area.

    Both NNTP and WEB based users are now invited to reply to ilAli's post. I have quoted the entire post so that NNTP users have a 'hook' in which to reply. The original post was from user ilAli. I also quoted only the technical part of glistwan's reply.

    Thankyou for your patience during the thread move.

    OK

    If i understand OP question correctly the current setup is:

    WinXP :: VirtualBox :: openSuse 11.4 & KDE (Presumably 4.5 grade)

    Note, some details may be wrong or omitted.
    Suggestion: If my understanding of the setup is correct: start the
    VBox/oS 11.4/KDE session; insert the DVD; start Yast; select
    software/package management; switch from search to patterns (somewhere in
    the upper left) select Gnome and install (if not already installed); in
    Yast select system/desktop, unselect autologin, select desktop, select
    Gnome. exit, logout, restart VM if needed, at login screen find and
    select Gnome, login and experience Gnome.
