• Can Gnome and KDE coexist? How?


    I installed Antergos + Gnome. I would like to give KDE a try. Can KDE and Gnome coexist? If so, how can I install KDE (and the KDE applications)? After that, If I prefer to stay with KDE, how can Gnome be uninstalled? Thank you.

  • Definitely NOT under the same user. You could create a new user for KDE but again you would end up with stock KDE, not the one Antergos are providing . If you want it configured you ll have to start further digging up.
    If I were you, I d create a new partition and throw it there… No problem keeping both DEs, or keeping only one and extend its partition to take up the deleted partition.

    Well, it s up to you to mess up with your /home. To stay on topic, would you give a positive answer to the topic s question?⚡
