Has anyone noticed issues during and/or after the installation of KDE desktop?

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

I already have Gnome Shell along with Unity but want to add KDE for testing purposes. I heard somewhere that in Ubuntu 11.10, it does not go smoothly.

    The only problem I've ever had was with the oxygen gtk theme engine. But usually if everything got really weird a restart would fix things. – bntser Nov 20 '11 at 22:43
  • Ok Great! I heard it from a System Engineer, a former colleague! Anyway! Thanks for your confirmations :) – Hanynowsky Nov 21 '11 at 1:21

I don't know what you heard/read but it works just fine. Kubuntu is built on the same base as Ubuntu, uses the same libraries etc, just that KDE and it's related libraries+programs provide the desktop environment.

In fact, I have it installed (Kubuntu-desktop) on two systems with no problems...

  • Just a question but how does the text appear in other DEs other than KDEs? – Jordan Jan 30 '12 at 6:30
