View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu - KDE - Kubuntu Install

June 30th, 2010, 10:48 PM

What I was thinking about checking out was KDE or Kubuntu. I'm just curious about seeing what they are like. Just one or the other. From what I have read Kubuntu is Ubuntu's version of KDE? Being from the same maker if you will, perhaps I should check out Kubuntu, possibly less issues with Ubuntu?

What do you think about which one I should install and what about the way I'm installing them? Any do's or don'ts?

So far I have come across these two way to get either of the programs installed?

Steps for Installing "KDE desktop" in Ubuntu 10.04 :

step1: Open Synaptic Package Manager(System->Administration) and search for “kde desktop”.

*** Or installing Kubuntu

You can install kubuntu using the GUI tools, but the easiest way is to open a terminal window, and type in the following command:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
