Installing Gnome
 
How do I install Gnome from KDE? What are the base packages that I need in order to start the Gnome desktop?

Used to be called task gnome. Once you get a core package it should grab all the deps.

Try this command
Code:

sudo zypper in gnome-session nautilus gnome-panel gnome-desktop gnome-applets gnome-control-center gnome-packagekit gnome-main-menu file-roller
then you should have a GNOME option in your login manager.

It should bring in most of the deps.

Cheers Sean! Thanks! :thumbsup:

EDIT: That worked perfect. Again, thanks. ;)

OpenSUSE 11.3. So far, I'm liking it a lot. :thumbsup:

Honestly, sometimes it's just best to give the command so people can copy and paste it into the console and it's often much faster than the UI. :)
