#1 Postby alaqsory » Sat Jul 04, 2009 9:12 am

hello all, asalamu alikum
i downloaded mepis several times and the md5 the same on the net but it was not installed on my computer, so i get AntiX as it is the same mepis but with fluxbox.
now I need to download kde 4.2 on my AntiX and the gnome, how can I do that?
firstly i wrote in the terminal as root

Code: Select all

apt-get install gnome

but a message appear

root@islam:~# apt-get install gnome

I think gnome is not yet installable on Debian Testing (and thus antiX). You will have to wait until all the parts have entered Debian Testing.

As far as kde4 is concerned, you can use the meta-intaller to get the basics for kde4.2 under system/toole (fluxbox) or system (icewm).

Are you using antiX-M8 full or base version?

From the menu, there is an option System-Tools-and then meta-installer.
Once opened you can see under Windows Manager 2 choices for kde (full and lite)

The lite will give you a basic kde4 desktop.

Once finished you will be asked if you want to use kdm or slim login manager. As you will be using kde, I suggest kdm.
Once all is finished a reboot is best and then you should be able to login to a kde4 desktop.

Good luck!

If you don't get the kdm choice, do an
apt-get install kdm
before rebooting.

Edit: For antiX-M8 you will also need to install kdebase-workspace

Once you have installed all the above and rebooted, you'll be asked to set up kde4. Just follow the instructions.
On next login, don't forget to set Session Type to kde otherwise you'll get the setup kde4 option over again.
