    Unhappy How yum install KDE desktop?

    I did not install kDE desktop when I installed Fedora 16 (or there is no such an option provided by the new installer). Now I want to install kDE desktop via yum. I did yum grouplist, but did not find "KDE Desktop" or similar. There is "GNOME Desktop Environment".

    Is KDE still supported in Fedora 16?

    The option to install other desktops and other software is in the dvd installer but not on the live cds.

    Does this install the KDE Desktop Environment?

    Sorry, I found out myself.

    I did:
    yum groupinfo "KDE Software Compilation"

    And got:

    Group: KDE Software Compilation
    Description: The KDE SC includes the KDE Plasma Desktop, a highly-configurable graphical user interface which includes a panel, desktop, system icons and desktop widgets, and many powerful KDE applications.

    Yes, from KDE 4 it's been officially the confusing "KDE Software Compilation". Apparently having one of the few desktop environment names that wasn't mired in obsolete historical legacy didn't fit well with KDE's vision of the future...

    I came to realize that 'Compilation' is a great word for a desktop environment.

    That is for 15. KDE 4.7 is standard in 16.

    Please look at the date of the thread before adding to it. In this case, things have changed in the last four years. Therefore, Thread Closed. However, since you're experiencing a problem, I'll move your post over to it's own thread to get some attention. (Well, now that I've moved the post, my caution kinda doesn't make sense to the remaining posts.... oh well....)
