Kubuntu

Try using this project which offers both Gnome and KDE desktops from pure Debian repositories.

Why not try kubuntu, this gives you KDE3.4 instead of Gnome.

There's also a Kubuntu-specific user FAQ: http://kudos.berlios.de/

Hi,

Kubuntu is still based on the Ubuntu core which is uncompatible with the pure Debian repositories. Maybe it's just me, but I trust the 10 years behind Debian. I don't see why Ubuntu is reinventing the wheel when Debian has everything you need. I also don't care about the 6-month release project. I just do apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade once in a while and I'm up to date. Granted, Kubuntu has KDE 3.4, however, it won't be long before this makes its way into Debian if it hasn't already. But, to each his own!

Well, KDE 3.4 won't make it into the *stable* Debian version for another two years or so (whenever Etch will be declared stable). By then it'll rather be KDE 4.x.

If you're willing to use the KDE packages from the testing / unstable / experimental repositories (that's what I'm doing a.t.m.) you don't have a security team that guarantees timely fixes. (K)ubuntu does have one. One reason why I'm interested in Kubuntu...

As I read the site you linked it would install a debian system in stead of Kubuntu. Azwandy states that kubuntu really suits him well but has some questions and you suggest installing a Debian proper system.
