Can someone give me the link to where I can get the instructions on installing KDE on Vector?  I've checked Google and this forum but I can't seem to find anything.  I've never done this before so I'll need something that isn't so technical.   Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

... installing KDE on Vector?..  I've never done this before so I'll need something that isn't so technical... 
Assuming you're using Vector Linux 6.0 and want to install KDE 3. (not the new KDE 4):
Menu > System > Gslapt
enter the root password
In Gslapt:
Update first - to get the latest
When that finishes:
Search for "kdebase"
click on the tick box and click "install"
Click on the taskbar button "Execute"

You will be able to choose KDE 3.5 the next time you log in.

You could accidentally install KDE, as I did, by using Gslapt to install Amarok.
Ken has an excellent tutorial on installing Amarok (and KDE) at:
http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/09.Multimedia/amarok/Amarok.htm

Have fun.

hmmm...well, I got KDE installed (according to gslapt) but when I log out, I don't see KDE as an option for a windows manager.  I downloaded the .tlz file and was able to install it with no problems but it's still not showing up as a window manager option.

Thanks again for your help!

You may have to restart your system and not just log out and back in for kdm (the kde desktop manager) to take over for gdm.

If that does not work let me know what output you get for the following...
1st  in the terminal to make sure kdm is present.
$ whereis kdm
You should get a resonse like this....
kdm: /usr/bin/kdm /usr/X11R6/bin/kdm /usr/bin/X11/kdm /usr/X11/bin/kdm

2nd as a root user type  mousepad /etc/rc.d/rc.X
find the line that reads...
# This setting will be changed by vxdmset
DISPLAY_MANAGER=KDM     (<---Let me know if you show anything different than this)

What you wrote is exactly what it says.  I also rebooted my pc and KDE is still not showing under the session types when I login.  When I get home, I'll give you a list of what is showing on the login screen.  Maybe I'm just not seeing the KDE option (or for some reason it's under a different name).

Thanks again for all your help!

This is a problem I've run into on VL after I've installed different WM's and they don't show up on login.

My work around is go to /usr/share/xsessions copy a working.desktop link to a temp file, modify it to load the new wm and name it fvwm2Kde.desktop and copy this to /usr/share/xsessions and fvwm2 should show up at login.

You should modify the desktop link to show something like this.

Exec=/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession fvwm2

and change the Name also. I assume this would work with KDE also.

To have a working KDE3 you will need more than kdebase. There are several packages that will be needed. All the KDE3 packages are identifiable in gslapt as v3.5.10. If you want KDE4 there is a kde4meta option which will download everything from the kde4 section of the repository. After rebooting then KDM will be the default vs. GDM. (The kdebase package alone did not modify the desktop login manager on my machine.) The kde4 login mgr had corrupted graphics when I tried it FWIW.

What I downloaded was:

kdelibs-3.5.8-i586-2vl59.tlz

Would this be everything that I would need in order for KDE to be installed on my computer?  I think this was a 15mb file.  I didn't see any other programs in the repository...just a txt file and another file that I didn't recognize.

Thanks!

for a very basic install of kde3 you need kdelibs and kdebase.
That would give you the Windowmanager, the panel, the file manager and konsole, more or less.
Then you can add optional packages as you wish, like kdemultimedia or kdewebdev.

I'm looking at the repository right now:

http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/packages/kde/

and I'm not seeing a kdebase.  I tried pulling the files from Gslapt but I kept getting an error message.  Where would I get the kdebase package?  Should I download everything in this repository and install it?

Thanks again!

They are in the extra repository.

http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/extra/kde/kdebase-3.5.10-i586-1vl59.tlz

What is the error message you get from gslapt? You should use gslapt only to install packages at least you are paying special attention to the dependencies issue.

The message says the following:

"source failed"

"http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/packages/"

"This package source failed or is not available.  Do you want to disable this source and continue anyway?"

This is the message I get everytime I click on "update" and it doesn't matter which website I use as a source.

Would you paste the contents of your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file?

We should try to solve this one first. Installing kdebase and kdelibs from the extra repo is safe I think, so give it a try if you want, but stick with this problem, I would say it is an important one.

You dont have extra and patches repository enabled.
Open the file as root with your favorite editor and make the file to look like this.

Quote
WORKINGDIR=/home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages
EXCLUDE=kernel,kernel-ide,kernel-source,kernel-headers,kernel-modules
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/packages/
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/patches/
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/extra/
#DISABLED=file:///mnt/cdrom/packages/
#DISABLED=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/testing/

Then as root from the command line do

Code:
slapt-get -u

As usual  in Linux, there is always one more way to do it. You can also open Gslapt, go to Edit, Preferences, Sources, and select the same urls. After that hit the update button and you will be ready to go.
Let us know how it goes, and post back if you hit any problem.
