Tutorial instalasi KDE Desktop di UBUNTU (feisty fawn)

Selasa 21 Agustus 2007


Berhubung saia masih juga sedang mendalami UBUNTU baru saya, saya juga mau menshare beberapa ilmu yang sudah saya dapatkan beberapa hari ini di dalam pembelajaran ubuntu.

Tutorial ini saya dapat dari DebianAdmin namun bisa di pakai di ubuntu versi terbaru juga.

Mudah-mudahan dapat membantu untuk orang-orang yang masih newbie seperti saia ini dalam ber-migrasi dari windows menuju UBUNTU GBU 🙂

ps: Tutorial ini memakai bahasa inggris !

Install KDE Desktop in Ubuntu

KDE is a powerful graphical desktop environment for Unix workstations. It combines ease of use, contemporary functionality and outstanding graphical design with the technological superiority of the Unix operating system. KDE is a completely new desktop, incorporating a large suite of applications for Unix workstations. While KDE includes a window manager, file manager, panel, control center and many other components that one would expect to be part of a contemporary desktop environment, the true strength of this exceptional environment lies in the interoperability of its components.By default Ubuntu desktop installation will install gnome desktop enviroment and if you want to install KDE desktop enviroment you have three options.Those options are

kubuntu-desktop -This is the recommended metapackage to install; the full Kubuntu installation, with all the Kubuntu recommended packages. This includes OpenOffice, Kontact, Konversation, amaroK, K3B, and others.

kde -This will install the following KDE packages: kde-amusements, kdeaccessibility, kdeaddons, kdeadmin, kdeartwork, kdegraphics, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdepim, kdesdk, kdeutils, kdewebdev, kdevelop3 and the kde-core metapackage

kde-core -This will install the core — the bare-minimum required– of KDE. That is, kdebase, kdelibs, arts and fontconfig.
