    I'm using openSUSE 12.3 and KDE 4.10.5 'release 1".

    This thread intrigued me so I went to add Gnome to my system using Patterns, selected Gnome Desktop Environment, and received this warning notice.

    Code:
    pattern:gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64 requires patterns-openSUSE-gnome, but this requirement cannot be provided
    uninstallable providers: patterns-openSUSE-gnome-12.3-7.10.1.i586[repo-oss]
                       patterns-openSUSE-gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64[repo-oss]
        [ ] do not install pattern:gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64
    
        [ ] deinstallation of patterns-openSUSE-kde4_pure-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64
    
        [ ] do not install pattern:gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64
    
        [ ] break pattern:gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies
    If I select Gnome Base System I get no warning. I'm guessing I need to select both to install Gnome.

    What is the correct selection for the Gnome Desktop Environment warning, and why is "do not install pattern:gnome-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64" listed twice?

    Please, please. Start a new thread about this new problem. With a title that tells in short what it is about. That is the best way to advertise your problem to the others here. Only those that are (still) interested in this already solved problem will see this post.

    Just pick the second (deinstallation of KDE-pure). It sounds scary, but it is harmless.
    openSUSE Leap 15.2; KDE Plasma 5.18.5;

    Choose that one. You have a "pure" kde install, and you are going to get
    a "mixed" install. nrickert is correct.

    Apologies for not starting a new thread.

    Took your advice, spent 25 minutes downloading and installing, about an hour and a half of tweaking and all is well.

    Thanks!
