KDE and GNOME together


Hi all,

I am running FC5 with GNOME (of course) and I was wondering that can I have KDE also along with GNOME and boot to anyone? (Just to try them out)

Is it doable to keep both and work under both of them and if yes, any link to how please.

Thanks,

Yup. Just install kde using the FC5 package manager. When you are at the login screen, there will be a menu to choose GNOME or KDE. Just select which one you want to use before logging in.

If you want you can even run Gnome on one session and KDE on another at the same time.
