Thread: 12.2: KDE and gnome parallel?

    Default 12.2: KDE and gnome parallel?

    Hi,

    currently I have KDE installed.
    I tried to install gnome as well just to be able to use that window manager as an alternative.

    however, when I selected the Gnome desktop environment patter via yast, it conmplains that it misses patters-opensuse-gnome and proposes to delete patterns-opensuse-kde_pure, what I didn't dare to do, since I don't want to brake KDE

    is it possible to have both gnome and KDE in paarallel? how?

    thanks
    paul

    You are going about it the correct way. If the pattern meta package was all it wanted to remove, you are probably ok. Accept the suggestion and check the Installation Summary to see if anything important to KDE is actually removed.

    My guess is you'll end up re-installing anyway. It's a learning curve.

    No, that won't brake KDE. It won't even slow it down

    I have both installed. I installed it that way from the start.

    When I start the Yast software manager, "patterns-opensuse-kde_pure" is nowhere to be found, either on my system or in the repo for installing. As far as I know, it doesn't do anything, other than help select which real packages are needed for KDE.

    It will not break. It is removed because you no longer will have a "pure
    kde" environment, but a mixed one :-)

    Just accept it, and before proceeding check the summary to see what it
    is actually going to install or remove.
