I have installed KDE (default) with 11.4 openSUSE. Now from the location:
Yast -> Software Management -> View -> Patterns
I installed the XFCE desktop, which is also good. However, I didn’t install the Gnome desktop, but while I login from the session windows, there is an option to switch to Gnome too (I don’t know why it is coming there though I actually cannot login to it). Now installing Gnome, I am trying as follows:
Yast -> Software Management -> View -> Patterns and here are two options:
GNOME Desktop Environment
GNOME Base System
Should I check both? If I check ‘GNOME Base System’, there is no issue but while if I check (for installation) the other option ‘GNOME Desktop Environment’, there is a warning:
One thing straight away: the first one is a 11.3 repo. Should not be used with 11.4
If you’re looking for GNOME 3, you’re better off installing openSUSE 12.1, you can even modify the packageselection during install to set it to install KDE and GNOME3 all at once.
Okay, so should I disable that repo of 11.3, so only disabling of that repo would work or would I need to uninstall the GNOME desktop too? I installed the GNOME desktop and automatically that repo got added in 11.4 openSUSE. I don’t need GNOME 3 but only wanted to see the GNOME desktop from the Session login, so installed it in KDE (the default one). I also installed XFCE. But now what (should) I do? Thanks.
I did exactly like this but only in the first figure you gave, there was no where written “as superuser” in its heading while I did it from Yast (which actually is written in the picture you showed). The output of “zypper ve” is as follows:
