Installing KDE Plasma on LMDE 3 (beta)

Post by frc_kde » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:51 am

I have downloaded LMDE 3 Beta last August, 16. ─ Installed it, ─ and immediately began to install KDE, without configure Cinnamon.

I didn't find "KDE Full" within LMDE 3 Tasksel repos, ─ just "KDE", ─ so I had to gradually install many specific packages more, later ─ and it was good, as I learned a bit more about KDE packages.

Only after this, I have seen there was a "KDE-Full" meta-package ─ out of Tasksel ─ but back then it made no more sense to use it. Most of its packages were already installed, or didn't interest.

This "LMDE 3 KDE" have been working fine for 2 months, until now, ─ although Mint 18 / Kubuntu 16.04 / KDE Neon Xenial remain my preferred distros for daily work, because of my old hardware (2008).

Here is a report ─ just to record what I have done, which errors I did, and a few things I have learned. ─ Unhappily, it is in Portuguese (pt_BR), but there is a Translator button at the top of the right column. Sorry, this right-column doesn't appear within mobiles.
