Question Different packages for different environments?


Iam using fedora core 1 . I downloaded a kppp package(tar) . When I opened that file in gnome , I got an error saying corrupted files ,cant open.

But when I switched to kde and opened the package, it opened and I ran the setup.

So are there packages that are specifically designed for various desktops environments, or is that I have a problem with my gnome env'mnt

if you downloaded a package for kde and tried to use it in gnome it most likely won't work.
