how do I install KDE or GNOME ?

Recommended Posts

alright so I finally came to a conclusion...i'm going to use gnome exclusively

here's the problem, when I uninstalled kde, rebooted my machine, and logged in I got the msg asking me if I wanted to make gnome.desktop my default. sooo I says sure, and it loads up the ugly non-functional basic desktop that you get from installing x.

can I just re-yum gnome or is there going to be some accrobatics I'm going to have to go threw in order to get gnome back? :ph34r:

as root do this

 

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

 

and for those of you wanting to install KDE via yum try this

 

yum groupinstall "KDE Software Development"

I notice (after I re-installed fc6) that Gnome relay's on a couple of packages from kde or at lease what It seems to me anyway.
