Install Mint Gloria KDE over Kubuntu Jaunty

Postby speedyx on Tue Jun 02, 2009 7:54 am

I have an installed and working well kubuntu jaunty.
I wish to switch to Mint.
What do you think about adding to kubuntu a file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mint.list with the Mint's sources.list ?
What packages do you suggest I should install to have a gloria-kde?

I recommend everyone Linux Mint KDE as the simplest GNU/Linux distribution for the common user
and the italian Santech notebook, 100% linux compatible!

Don't do it (yet)
No Gloria KDE exists even if a first RC probably is just round the corner
It would then be possible to install the meta packages, but you won't get a full Gloria KDE that way

Thank you Husse!
I love KDE and used it on debian, fedora, ubuntu... all gnome distro by default. So Mint is. :oops: Sig! :cry:

Why not just install the Mint 7 (gnome edition), and then install kubuntu-desktop over it??? I have the Mint 7 RC1 Gloria (jaunty) running with KDE 4.3 beta 1 now with no problems at all other than the few bugs in the KDE 4.3 beta.

These steps are so easy...It will install KDE 4.2.3

Why I should install a lot of gnome packages that I will purge?

OpenSuse is out of my range of prefered distro. Mepis is not actualized. Kubuntu is full of bug. Mandriva was full of bug, but now I don't know. PCLinuxOS .. I don't know. Maybe fedora (I have experienced selinux problems)
I left debian unstable for the long freeze and for the fact it is not a distro desktop-oriented. Too many enterprise packages and configurations installed out of the box.
I like Mint for the simplicity, but for beginner kde user I suggest pardus, that is KDE centric, even not so actualized and not debian.

I wish a debian based kde actualized distro. I like the Mint philosophy, the Mint community, and I wish to wait for the next kde gloria. I want to contribute, but I haven't time.

If you install the kubuntu-desktop you don't get a Minty taste

@WildSioux:

How did you install kde? Just by selecting "kubuntu_desktop"? That results in a broken desktop for me. KDE seems to be installed and I can log in but I can't click on anything... See my post here.
