How to install KDE? Yum install kde didn't work..


In Ubuntu i just did sudo apt-get install kde and it installed KDE 4.2 for me. I'm wondering how i can do this in Fedora that i'm using right now.. i did yum install kde and it returned this..

Did you try the GUI package manager?
Are the repositories configured correctly?
Does Fedora in fact have a package named "kde" (It might be called something else.)

Hey pixellany.

When i Add/Remove Software (PackageKit Package Manager) and searched for KDE I got a lot of stuff like games and apps and core utils and language support etc but no KDE Desktop Environment itself..

I don't know what repositories i must add to install KDE and i don't even know how to add them either..

This is a partial answer:
http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-kde

I started looking for the Fedora repositories and did not get very far. Look in your package manager and get the url of one of the repositories--plug this into a browser and see if you can find the kde package that way. OR--the Fedora wiki might have something.

If you want JUST kde, it is "yum install kdebase". The reason "yum install kdepim" works is that kdebase is a dependency of kdepim, and therefore yum installs it to satisfy the dependency (as well as all of the other dependencies).

Hope that clears things up,

Forrest

The correct procedure for installing the whole KDE is described here:

Code:
yum -y groupinstall "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
The commands above should install KDE on Fedora.
