If I want to make a clean KDE based Fedora install, is it better to use the full DVD and only pick KDE, or use the KDE live CD? What is the actual difference? Do you still need to "de gnome" your system (e.g. replace gdm with kdm, most importantly MESSED UP KDE MENU!!! where are my apps LOL).
Also, when you install using the live CD, can you specify what partitions to use (esp. preserving existing LVMs - my data partition!!).
I ask as I switched from gnome to kde via switchdesk, and there is a lot of gnome stuff popping up everywhere. e.g. keyboard shortcuts (that launch... nautilus (yuck), covering my KDE desktop LOL).
All the gnome I want to run are enough dependencies to operate the gtk programs I like (which yum will take care of), I don't actually want any gnome services, window managers etc. and most importantly a menu that isn't a horrible mismash of the default gnome and default kde menus.
On a related note: does anyone know how to make gnome application fonts look like kde fonts. with identical settings fonts in gnome apps still look 'different'. it does seem like some kind of gnome font manager or window manager is running underneath kde for gnome apps... am I right? (I already have installed the "Configure GTK options in my KDE control centre.... which I don't think is working, as I still need to go into gnome font control to affect the look).
Sorry in advance for being longwinded! the endless linux tweaking continues...
