Can I install KDE along with Gnome and choose which I would like to use for each session?
Yes you can do this,after installing you have a choice of selecting the Gnome or KDE for each session at login screen
I’ve been very happy with the install and am using KDE daily. I installed some programs (with the package manager) screensavers and some software updates last night. When I started Firefox my bookmarks were missing. I got an error message saying my calendar had wnot been saved properly. I tried shutting completely down, when I try to re-start, I click on KDE session (as always), enter my password (no, not forgotten), and the screen returns to the sign on screen. I tried starting a Knome session, same problem. I tried recovery mode, same problem. I started a (was it terminal?) session and was able to enter my user name and password ok, but what do I do from here? I have the terminal screen.
Hi, I faced the following error. How do i resolve it??
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/konsole-kde4_4%3a4.1.0-0ubuntu1~hardy1~ppa2_amd64.deb (–unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/applications/kde4/konsole.desktop’, which is also in package konsole
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Hi Ketan. You must first remove konsole from within adept. Then install konsole-kde4. I had these errors when upgrading before and removing the previous version allowed the new install. Hope this helps.
