Debian Multimedia :: Have Gnome Want To Install KDE As Well

Dec 30, 2010

I have gnome installed and want to install KDE as well to be able to run them both. As I understand from searching the web, I should be able to install KDE and at boot I will be able to choose which DE to start.

You are supposed to just run:

su [password ]
apt-get install kde

But I get dependencies errors, translated from swedish so it is not exact:

Dependencies: kde-core (>=5:47) but will not be installed
Dependencies: kdeaddons (>= 4:3.5.5) but will not be installed
Dependencies: kdenetwork (>= 4:3.5.5) but will not be installed
Dependencies: kdetoys (>= 4:3.5.5) but will not be installed

If I check kde-core the version is: 5:48. If I try to install kde-core first I get another bunch of dependencies errors... so I seem to go in circles.

I am running Lenny 5.0.7 amd64.

Debian Multimedia :: New Install Won't Boot Into Gnome

Oct 18, 2015

Things have changed a lot since I started hacking Fortran in 1971...

I have installed debian 8.1.0 on my desktop (Asus m5a97 mobo, AMD 8230E cpu, e-Geforce 7200 GS graphics card). When I do a normal boot, the system will hang before it gets into gnome.

While in advanced mode, I noticed the following in /var/log/messages:

gnome-session[1371]: WARNING: Could not parse desktop file caribou-autostart.desktop or it references a not
found TryExec binary

A search of the web found the same error : [URL] ....

The bug report suggested that I place the version of caribou-autostart.desktop found in:

with the version found in:

I replaced the file. The problem is still there.

I have installed the 8.2.0 version of debian to see if the bug was fixed in the current release. The problem is the same.

Debian Multimedia :: Possible To Install KDE Without These GNOME-ish Deps?

Jul 13, 2011

I'm fairly new to Debian but I'm a long time user of various other non-Debian-based distros.So far, my Debian experience has been pleasant but today I have hit a minor stumbling block. I'm trying to install KDE on a Debian Testing installation but no matter whether I apt-get a meta package (eg kde-full) or any of the various individual kde-base packages, I frequently find GTK2, GTK3 and gconf dependencies in the proposed list of packages to be installed.Is it possible to install KDE on Debian without these GNOME-ish deps?

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Extensions Fail To Install Via Browser

Jan 26, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie and I'm trying to install some Gnome Shell Extensions from this site: [URL] .....

I click on the extension and it shows a button that I can turn ON or OFF. It's OFF by default. Then I click it, it turns ON and I'm asked if I want to download and install that extension. I say Yes! But then nothing happens. If I visit "Installed extensions" session, it says there are no extensions installed. And if I refresh the extension page, the ON button becomes OFF again. No matter how many times I try to do this, the result is the same. I tryed it with Iceweasel (v. 24.2.0) and Google Chrome (v. 32.0.1700.77) and default gnome-shell (v. 3.8.4).

Debian Multimedia :: Install Gnome On Testing - Broken Packages

Sep 12, 2015

I'm on Debian testing and every time I try to install Gnome I get this:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:07]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo tasksel install gnome-desktop --new-install
tasksel: apt-get failed (100)

I tried installing it manually:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:35]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo apt-get install gnome                     
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

[Code] ....

Is this a problem in Debian repos (held packages) or I'm actually doing something wrong?

Debian Multimedia :: "apt-get Install Gnome-desktop-environment"?

I have a problem with my server. When i try to "apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment" it comes out with a failure. When i try to apt-get -f install it comes out with this

ks365539:~# apt-get -f install

I heard that it is possibly because I have Lilo on my server, instead of grub. How do I make the desktop-base work?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Do Multiseat With GNOME

Oct 14, 2015

All of the documentation I've found on setting up a Multiseat configuration in Debian with GNOME is old. How do I set up Multiseat in Debian Unstable with GNOME 3 and GDM 3? Also, I do not have a video card. I have an integrated Intel GPU that supports two monitors. The multi-monitor set up works, but I want to set up Multiseat.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie With Gnome - Cannot Log In

Dec 29, 2015

Here's the thing:

- Debian boots normally
- I get the login screen
- Once my credentials entered, I see only the grey foreground of the login screen for a couple of seconds, then a black screen with a prompt for like half a second and then I'm back to the login screen. No error message, nothing.

When booting in recovery mode and use startx, it works fine (it's my setup at the moment). From there, if I start gdm3 (systemctl start gdm.service), I get the black screen with a prompt and I can do nothing, I have to shut down directly by pressing the button.I tried to add Debian-gdm user to the video group (even if I don't use nVidia drivers), to replace gdm by lightdm and even to remove any display manager but the issue is not solved.Here are some outputs:

Code: Select all# dpkg-reconfigure gdm3
Job for gdm.service failed. See 'systemctl status gdm.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
invoke-rc.d: initscript gdm3, action "reload" failed
Code: Select all# journalctl -xn
-- Logs begin at Tue 2015-12-29 19:16:26 CET, end at Tue 2015-12-29 20:20:55 CET


Since removing gdm didn't change anything, I assume it doesn't have anything to do with it but still.

Debian Multimedia :: Right Click With Gnome 2.2?

Apr 16, 2010

i've recently reinstalled my computer after the unexpected death of my hard drive. (with the lastest Etch install CD) I have a weird bug that is quite annoying: i cannot change the focus of a window using the left click, I have to use the right click first, and sometimes it doesn't even work. For example, i log in, click on the launch menu and fire a terminal. This works. Let's say i type a few commands, and wants to start mozilla. I left click on the menu, and nothing happens. If i right click the properies menu appears, and then i can use the left click on the menu. It's like that for everything. Let's say i have a terminal and mozilla started. If i'm on mozilla and wants to use the terminal, i have to right click on it, cancel the menu and then i can use the mouse on it. Even atl tab doesn't help: the keyboard gets the focus correctly, but the mouse can't click anything in the window. I've tried replugging the mouse, rebooting, using another mouse, nothing helps. Last thing is reinstall again, and i hope i won't have to.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Themes Are Gone?

May 10, 2011

I'm in Debian testing and I had Gtk+-3 from the apt-get. Now because I wanted to install Xnoise in Debian from source, I needed gtk+-2. So I installed gtk+-2 from the source. And after that Xnoise was installed and worked great. I've noticed that Xnoise theme was standard(gray). Note: I installed both of them to /usr/local(default/no prefix). But when I rebooted my computer, all Gnome themes was also gray. BTW: After reset I can't hear any sound in Xnoise, but this isn't the subject here. Therefor, I went to System->Preferences->Appearance and It tells me the following error in a yellow box(translated): "The theme won't seen as excepted because GTK+ Adwaita suit isn't installed."

I had the "clean theme" which is the default Gnome theme in Debian. Now all the themes have gone.... I can see only "Custom" which is ugly gray. How can I restore it?

Debian Multimedia :: Opinions About KDE And Gnome?

Sep 2, 2011

I'd like to hear some opinions from those of you who are willing to share some, about your experience with KDE or GNOME, about why you chose one or another and about what you miss in one or another. I don't want any "vs" discussions or the likes, I'm simply interested in sharing experiences. (I hope this is not "yet another KDE GNOME post" to bore you off, I searched a little bit and found no such topic).

Nov 22, 2014

I got a new laptop, Dell Vostro with AMD A6. This came with Ubuntu 12. Got rid of it!I installed Debian 7.6 from a Live dvd with gnome & update it and no have Debian 7.7.

This is missing in my installation.Below is a link of desktop image i could find. The left activities bar does not show on my system. URL....

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Can't Detect New Drivers

Feb 8, 2015

I recently installed fglrx proprietary drivers. Upon reboot, gnome stopped working - the classical "something has gone horribly wrong" message showed up. Surprised, i switched to KDE plasma display manager, and it worked flawlessly.So I opened up Konsole, and typed: gnome-shell --replace.I received this output:

Code: Select all(gnome-shell:3729): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_strsplit: assertion 'string != NULL' failed
(gnome-shell:3729): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: The OpenGL version could not be determined
(gnome-shell:3729): mutter-ERROR **: Unable to initialize Clutter.
Trace/breakpoint trap

which led me to think that gnome is not able anymore to detect my display driver. It is however working well: glxgears gives the usual values, and glxinfo does detect the correct driver.I thus searched the web for that error, and the only results that showed up were about changelogs / some obscure things.The xorg.conf seems perfect to me: pointing to the correct drivers, and having the correct values.I am having Debian Jessie with an r9 290x on the proprietary Omega drivers.

I would like to remove it, because typically I don't need to see it all day. Its enough if it shows up when i go to the upper left corner and see all running applications.

I found this: [URL].... but if you add the repo in that article and update apt,the repo fails.

second try(this one works): [URL].... different extension, same goal. but this one works with gnome 3.14.2 allow gnome to change files when firefox asks.
