how to install KDE?

Wed Jul 10, 2013 3:58 am
I was having kubuntu 13.04. I tried to install cinnamon for experiencing look and feel of cinnamon. I didn't like it as much as i like KDE. So i decided to remove all GNOME, UNITY and Cinnamon packages from the system and I ended up with only terminal rather than the Kubuntu Desktop :(

I need a full fledged KDE system built on ubuntu with KDE graphical interface(latest look-and-feel). So I installed below:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kde-full


Now after installing kde-full package, is it necessary to install any one of the below for graphical user interface? and which is the best from below?
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-full
vs
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-standard
vs
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kde-plasma-desktop
.

Please do help

Moved to Linux subforum.

According to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingKDE, kubuntu-full contains a full Kubuntu installation, kde-full contains most KDE modules including everything in kde-plasma-desktop, and kde-plasma-desktop contains the bare minimum for KDE Plasma workspace.

So if you want the Kubuntu experience, I would uninstall kde-full (to be on the safe side) and install kubuntu-full.
