I installed Antergos maybe a month ago and am really enjoying it. I chose Gnome Shell just because I haven’t tried it.I came from Linux Mint Cinnamon, and I know that Cinnamon is available, as is KDE, etc.
So, i thought I’d install Cinnamon today. I went into the software manager and searched for Cinnamon. Being a 'buntu refuge, I figured that if I chose cinnamon-desktop that it would be sufficient and pull in all dependencies, but it did not, so I didn’t confirm installation…
If I want to install both Cinnamon and KDE to try out, which package(s) do I actually need
I have plenty of hard drive space, but at the same time, I’d like to keep a lean system.
On a side note, do you guys think that Gnome is going the way of the buffalo and the dinosaur? If I’m honest, I am really enjoying Gnome, but at the same time, it seems I had to do a bit of work to enable very basic functions, like the ability to DELETE FILES! If I recall, KDE got to be a convoluted mess of too many menus. Cinnamon seemed to be a nice balance, but at the same time, it seemed like there was something missing. Nice to have options, though.
