Sorry if you find the question to be repited, I have searched previous ones but refered to other specific packages and I don't really have the basic concepts clear, so I can't get to a conclusion.
I am new and I was testing different distros on VMs, trying to learn and get concepts. I have been trying to understad de difference between a distro, a desktop enviroment and a window manager (and even a display manager, "for the login").
I am now in the point were I have been trying to test different D.E. to see how they apply without needing new complete installations, and try to decide between them.
Following different guides I have seen that in order to get KDE Plasma as my D.E., I could run:
sudo apt install kde-standard
So I have run apt search kde-standard to see what it shows, but I don't fully understand:
What does the "Depends" part actually mean? that all those packages will be installed? and the "Recomends"? Are those just suggestions to install afterwards?
I have that doubt because I also found that I could do
sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop
and it seams that this command would add MORE "features", right?
What would be the difference for me to try kde-standard or kubuntu-desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 or installing kubuntu 20.04 from scratch?
Sorry if all of this sounds dumb!
