Post by verden »

I have LinuxMint 9 installed on my desktop and am very happy with it. Can i also have the mint kde desktop as well?
So i can log into gnome or kde.

Followed the example in the link you posted and everything went great but. when i go to login into kde it starts and then my screen goes blank. I can log into gnome just like before with no problems.

Isto é muito facil e eu mesmo fiz isto aquí e esta ótimo.

Segura esta: Vá no Synaptic e marque a opção: Kubuntu-Desktop e Kubuntu-Restricted-extras, aguarde pode demorar um pouco.

Reinicie, vá novamente ao Synaptic e procure Kubuntu, desmarque tudo (Kubuntu).

O Kubuntu será desinstalado mas o Kde permanecerá.

English please.

This is very easy and I did it myself here and it's great.

Secure this: Go into Synaptic and check the option: Kubuntu-desktop and Kubuntu-restricted-extras, wait can take a while.

Reboot, go back to Synaptic and search Kubuntu, deselect everything (Kubuntu).

Kubuntu is uninstalled but Kde remain.
