start any kde app and from the menu choose Help -> About KDE. i don't think there's a way to do it from the command line except if you search for the version of the kde rpms.

Hi,

Tks for your advice. I found it. But something strange while running follows;

RH 8.0
GNOME desktop

$ rpm -qa kde-*
$ rpm -qa kde*
$ rpm -qa | grep kde*
all no printout

$ rpm -q kde*
package kde-040713 is not installed
package kde-040713~ is not installed

]$ su
Password:
# rpm -q KDE
package KDE is not installed
# rpm -q kde
package kde is not installed

Any advice. TIA

B.R.

rpm -qa | grep kde

Hi slackyoda,

Tks for your advice.

Following command line works

$rpm -qa | grep kde

* wildcard is not necessary.
