KDE on Zenwalk 8


Given that Zenwalk is based on Slackware, is possible to install the same version of KDE that is on Slackware 14.2 , which is KDE version 4.14.21? Is it part of option or it has been completely removed?

Hi,

Zenwalk IS a tweaked Slackware, so it's perfectly supported to install all KDE packages from Slackware repository on Zenwalk.

Another solution to get the same result is to install Slackware from DvD and then install the "z" (Zenwalk) packages on it.

Regards
JP

Thanks for the reply, Jean, I asked whether it is possible to install KDE Desktop Environment as a whole on Zenwalk, not just few packages from KDE, if it is, can you out line the procedure of preferably a command from the terminal!
