    How can I change my GNOME 3 to KDE or GNOME 2?


    hello,

    I am using the Fedora 15 GNOME 3 currently. Personally, didn't quite like the new desktop environment. Can I change my GNOME 3 to GNOME 2? If not, how I can change it to KDE?

    Hello and welcome!

    I don't run Fedora, but believe that running the following command should give you a full KDE install:

    Code:
    yum groupinstall "KDE Software Compilation"
    Maybe someone will correct that if that's not right.

    Glad that command worked for you.

    Note that you'll probably need to reconfigure your display manager or enable a different one to boot into KDE instead of Gnome. If you are sure you won't be booting into Gnome anymore, you might also want to remove it from your system. Maybe someone else will reply with the best command for doing that in case you should need it.

    Have fun with Linux.

    If you really do prefer Gnome to KDE, you can always bump GNOME 3 back to what Fedora 15 calls fallback mode. When logged onto the GNOME 3 desktop, I think you click on your username in the top right corner, then click on System Settings, and then System and then Graphics and it's there. After you set it to fallback mode, just log off and back on again. I might be missing a step somewhere, that is from my (bad) memory...
