    Getting KDE on Debian


    Hi, I just got my copy of Debian installed, and although I have Gnome running, I would really like to run KDE instead.

    I have tried installing through synaptics and apt-get, but I errors saying certain dependancies are not installable.

    Below is my sources list

    Code:
    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main
    deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main
    
    deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updtates main
    I think I'm missing some debian repositories, but even after searching the site, I was not sure what I should have listed, but I assume I'm missing some things, so any additions to the sources list would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    The problem is some of the stuff of C++ is undergoing a transition. So you can either drop back to stable or wait it out for a week (or a few weeks).
