Clash of KDE packages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2009
I tried to apply some updates to my 8.10 a couple of weeks back and something went wrong. I now get this error when I try to update:
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/kdebase-workspace-data_4%3a4.1.4-0ubuntu1~intrepid3.1_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/colors', which is also in package kdebase-runtime-data
It seems that kdebase-workspace-bin and libplasma2 are broken.
I'm getting by running xfce for now. It's actually not that bad and I can run most stuff, but I'd like KDE back. I expect I need to fix this before thinking about upgrading to Jaunty.
Kubuntu vs Ubuntu + KDE Packages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 1, 2012
I'm wondering what the main differences are (if any) between installing Kubuntu vs. installing ubuntu and then the KDE packages later, other than getting more desktop applications through the second way.
Is it safe to remove KDE packages?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 26, 2013
I've recently reinstalled Slackware 14 after some major breakage.
I chose to install everything.
But since I don't use KDE I'd like to remove it.
Is it safe to remove all the package from /K or are any of them dependencies for other packages.
I do use QT apps like Google Earth and would like to be able to run K3B sometime but any QT apps I will use have to be independent of KDE.
I'm using XFCE for my desktop right now.
But I don't use any KDE apps and never will.
[SOLVED] Arch Linux: How do I remove all XFCE4.8 and GNOME3 packages? Only want KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 4, 2011
Okay, so I've been doing a bit of tweaking, exploring, damaging the system *But making backups for those occasions... They weren't on purpose, I was just trying figure out how they work* Okay, so... How can I get rid of all the XFCE and GNOME packages? Is there a list of all the packages that I can remove? I don't like how minimal XFCE looks and GNOME3 is OKAY, but not my cup of tea, and KDE4.6 with classic toolbar looks pretty cool.
To clarify, I want to remove ALL XFCE and GNOME packages so I can just have a clean KDE environment without non-working and redundant packages.

[SOLVED] Minimun packages required to build kde apps (KMyMoney)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 15, 2011
Debian squeeze amd_65, using gde3/gnome.
I'd like to use KMyMoney, but the latest packages (v4.5.2) and not the v3.9.8/test version that's in Synaptic Package Manager.
I'd rather not install every package that contains *kde* in the name, but I'm more than willing to install the minimum required to compile and run them.
Trying to build kmymoney v4.5.2. After some google searches on the specific errors, I initially learned about apt-file and the find feature.

LXer: Unofficial KDE DEB packages released for Nokia Internet Tablets
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 16, 2008
Published at LXer:
Last year, an industrious hacker known as Penguinbait provided instructions that described how to install the KDE desktop environment on Nokia Internet Tablet devices. As we noted at the time, the instructions required extensive use of the command-line and were not really geared towards a mainstream audience. Fortunately, the availability of recently released unofficial KDE Maemo port packages vastly simplifies development.
Differences between the kde meta packages in ubuntu 14.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2014
I've been trying to understand the difference between all the meta packages for kde in the latest ubuntu release, mostly to try and figure out what would be the smallest (minimal) install of kde I could find in ubuntu. I know these might become obsolete once kde plasma 5 becomes the default, but for now kde 4 is still the default.
The main meta-packages I've been able to find are:
plasma-desktop and kde-workspace seem to install the same number of programs so I conclude they're the same for all intents and purposes.
If you install any of these from the mini.iso minimal ubuntu image, these are the number of applications they install:
plasma-desktop = 505kde-workspace = 505kde-plasma-desktop = 539kde-standard = 736kubuntu-desktop = 1202kde-full = 1128
If you have the normal ubuntu desktop installed, and want to install any of these alongside it, this is how many additional packages they install:

What packages are required for KDE Plasma widget development on Kubuntu?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I'd like to develop a KDE Plasma widget, but the developer guide tells me to fetch "KDE Trunk" to get started. I have three problems with that:
I'd rather not get the whole source code of KDE just to develop a simple widget.
I want to develop a widget for the current version (10.10) of Kubuntu. Guess a tag would do, but what about Kubuntu's patches?
KDE seems to be in the middle of moving from Subversion to Git, so "KDE Trunk" (i.e. SVN) doesn't seem to be sufficient, and mixing Git and Subversion repositories doesn't sound good.
I've spotted quite a few KDE packages ending in -dev, so I guess some of those will be all I need.
Which packages in particular do I need to install in order to compile a Plasma widget?
