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'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?
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).
My problem is that I am trying to install nvidia drivers I got integrated card nvidia geforce 6100 nforce and amd x2x64 processor and also squeeze x64, so I downloaded the driver but when I try to top gnome I cant /etc/init.d/gdm stop it says no such file or directory So I google it and I found that squeeze has genome 3 so I put: /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop and it just appears a black screen just with a prompt but without any shell, I cant sign in debian or do anything it is just a black screen and i try ctrl+alt+f1, f12, f8, space and nothing, I can write but it doesn't response the only thing that I can do is press ctrl+alt+dell and it restart the PC. How can I stop gnome to install my drivers?
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 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.
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.
i've recently installed debian506 (i386 version) with the gnome desktop manager, but i wanted to change it in kde. so i tried the solution explained here for the "kde desktop" solution: http://wiki.debian.org/KDE?action=show& ... =DebianKDE but after rebooting i found the gnome desktop manager there..i tried to unistall gnome with the code: tasksel delete gnome-desktop after rebooting again gnome how i can set kde as default desktop manager? i premise that i am a newbie from debian I prefer avoid to reinstall all the operating system from the beginning.
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?
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).
Y keY is not working.I changed keYboards and its still the same. It works fine in ttY1 for example and shift Y works too. It works fine within things like openarena... But in gnome it does not. I checked binds and stuff, everYthing seems normal and i havent thouched anYthing related. It just does nothing when i press it alone.
When I run it live, I see KDE4. When I install it off the same disk, it installs Gnome. I can't figure out how to install KDE4. I had no luck with apt-get install kde4 (E: Couldn't find package kde4), no luck with aptitude, no luck with Synaptic (The following packages have unresolved dependencis kdebase-runtime-bin-kde4).
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. I saw a few videos where Debian 7 comes with a vertical menu bar at the left of the screen and most of the options are available is a nice graphical interface. 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....
Also including diplay details if this could be display drivers related.
01:00.0 Display controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device 6663 Subsystem: Dell Device 0682 Physical Slot: 0 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 10 Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
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 am using empathy, for facebook chat desktop pop-up notifications. The problem is, when i close the chat i cannot re opened it from the low bar like the previous version of gnome because when i put the mouse pointer down, off the screen the low bar does not appear.
