    A new desktop environment for SUSE 9.1


    Are there any easy-to-install desktops for SUSE 9.1 beside KDE?
    I have installed Fluxbox from a RPM, but it's the only alternative I've found so far in RPM format, are there any more?

    You should have loads on your install cds.

    Gnome
    XFCE4
    IceWM
    Windowmaker


    ......and loads more (last 2 are window managers, I know )

    you should have installed them at the installation...you can also do that by booting from cd and do an update system packages in order to install gnome etc..

    I just posted a response in this thread on a similar subject. Basically, you just need access to some of the packages that are included in the Professional version. This can be done easily by using YaST.

    If you set up a Source of Installation as I described the other window managers will be available in the Install and Remove Software YaST module. GNOME will be visible when you choose "Selections" from the drop-down menu. The others you may have to plug into the search window.

    Your next fun project will be how to access them via KDM.
