How To: Install KDE on Arch Linux Tutorial [2019]


KDE in my opinion is by far the most
complete and refined desktop environment available and you’re gonna learn how to
install it in arch right now so this is a super simple guide it’s only a few
commands the arch meta packages make it super easy to install all we’re gonna do
is we’re gonna install X we’re gonna install KDE and it’s applications we’re
gonna enable some services and we’re gonna be good to go we’re gonna have a
whole desktop environment already installed for us the only thing that
this guide assumes is that you already have a minimal install of arch if you
don’t already have arch installed I’ll be picking up right where I left off in
my arch install guide which I’ll link in the description I’m already logged in
and connected to the network so I’m just gonna make sure that my packages are
up-to-date and then we’ll install X use the meta package it enter to accept all
of the packages and then enter one more time to confirm the install now that’s
installed we’ll just go ahead and install the the plasma meta package and
the KDE applications package just gonna hit enter for the defaults on all of
these and hit enter one more time to confirm the install and depending on
your network connection this could take a very long time the Downloads finished
now the packages are installing I just wanted to say that if you find this
helpful I would really appreciate it if you’d hit that like button and if you
want to see more content like this then subscribe alright so now that it’s
finished we just need to enable a couple of services systemctl enable sddm which
is our display manager and systemctl enable network manager notice the case
there capital n capital m that gets me and when we reboot we should reboot into
a login screen and there you have it there’s our login screen once we get
logged in you can see that this is a full install of KDE it includes all the
applications just like you’d expect and so that’s it I hope I helped again it
like if you enjoyed the video until next time peace
