[SOLVED] Installing KDE Desktop

Postby tharpa » Jan 14th, '19, 00:22

I'm trying to install the KDE desktop. When I go to Software Management, Graphical Desktop, KDE, I'm not sure what to check, as I don't see anything that's clearly the KDE desktop or Plasma, just various libraries. I guessed that it would be Default-kde-4-config, but when I rebooted I did not see any additional options at the log screen, just the existing ones (Enlightenment, etc.).

Principle: task-something installs that whole "something", which may be hundreds of packages. i.e task-lxde, task-mate, task-printing and so on.
