• Gnome to KDE


    I want to install KDE now instead of Gnome. What packages should I install/remove? Will gnome applications (like gedit) stop working? Does KDE come with an application bundle as gnome?

  • Hi,

    You can use the script below to switch to KDE from GNOME. You will need to run it as root from outside of GNOME (Ctrl + Alt + F2). Don’t forget to make it executable.

  • Thanks!

  • It would be absolutely fantastic if this could be integrated into some kind of GUI, much like it is in the installer. I know you wouldn’t be able to remove the DE in use, but maybe that’s not required as often all I like to do to switch for a few hours and try things out.

  • @ironicbadger: Thanks! You’ve given me a nice idea. I’ll adapt Dustin script. When I have it done I’ll post it here.

    Cheers!
