Author Topic: kde-apps in xfce  (Read 1813 times)

« on: July 17, 2007, 05:13:05 am »


i am now trying vl-standard with xfce on an old pc.

so far i only have had kde this box (128mb ram) deserves the standard-vl.

installation was a no brainer..all went well

question: is it possible to install kde-apps in xfce as well( i have something heard about the compatibility with the kde-bibliothekes..)
i have in mind to install k3b, quenview and kaffeine..because i am used to them.

so, is it possible and advisable?

greets g√ľnter

A great many kde apps work with just kdelibs installed, others will require one or two other kde packages. They should pull the proper dependencies from the repo if you use slapt-get/gslpat. However, remember they will load the kde libs when executed, which is not as "heavy" as the whole KDE desktop, but will consume some extra resources.

Also possible in Xfce is when you go to
'Settings manager - Session & Startup - Tab: Advanced - Launch KDE services on startup'
I think this will become handy when you often use KDE utilities on Xfce.

You can grab the KDE-apps you wish from Gslapt, and all necessary packages will be installed to run the application you've chosen.

One other minor question: is it possible to upgrade to the latest Xfce without breaking things? Through the graphical Xfce installer that is...
