    Question Install KDE on OpenSUSE 12.1 (installed with GNOME)

    Hey guys,

    just want to ask

    I have installed OpenSUSE 12.1 with Gnome
    I am thinking can I install KDE?

    or can I have both?

    I like them both, how do I install KDE along side with GNome
    and is it possible to switch between the 2? if yes how do I set it up?

    help is much appreciated guys

    Long Live Linux!!!

    Yes, you can have both.

    Go into Yast. Select "software management". Then select "Patterns" -- I'm not quite sure where to find that in the Gnome interface to Yast, but it will be there.

    Then select the "KDE Desktop Environment" pattern.

    Then follow your nose to complete the installation.

    When you login at the display login screen, there is actually a menu where you can select between gnome, KDE and some other choices. You should be able to find it. If your system was setup to automatically log you in, then a logout will get you to that login screen.

    Of course.

    Just install both patterns. YaST.

    You just choose one or the other when you login.

    This is the command to install KDE. Is it not what you want?

    • sudo means that you have to be root to run this command
    • zypper in or zypper install means that you're going to install something.
    • -t pattern means that you're going to install a pattern and not a package. A pattern is a collection of packages.
    • kde4 is the pattern that you want to install.


    You should either use sudo or run this command in a root terminal. If you are in a root terminal, you don't need sudo.

    "type". You can also use the long form --type instead of the short from -t.
