    Installing KDE

    Hello all,

    I just finished installing ubuntu 8.10. I installed KDE by doing

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install kde
    This got me KDE 4.1(thats what it says on the splash screen) but it does not seem like it is KDE 4.1 as lots of things are missing in it.
    When I try to change the display thru the display settings my whole screen goes haywire with lots of flickering and I have to restart my computer to fix it.
    So, how do I remove the KDE completely and install it again without any problems?

    Thanks.

    The easiest way is to

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
    In the world of Linux, who needs Windows and Gates...

    Got most of my golden beans at an auction on eBay (with a couple of free drinks).

    Do those command lines apply equally to installing KDE on top of a server install?
