    Open us YaST2, there should be an option on the left for filter by pattern or something like that, then select GNOME.

    Log out or reboot and at the login screen, select Session and GNOME.

    It keeps saying

    "pattern:gnome-11.2-20-22.1x86_64 requires patterns-openSUSE-gnome, but this cannot be provided."

    When does it give this error message?

    I found another guide that's better yet. Is this what you are doing?
    Install GNOME/XFCE/KDE3 Desktop environment from KDE4 or vice versa | SUSE & openSUSE

    Problems installing gnome, on kde - please help, been trying to sort it for hours

    That's what I get when I try to install it.


    "pattern:gnome-11.2-20.1x86_64 requires patterns-openSUSE-gnome, but this requirement cannot be provided...

    uninstallable providers: patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11-2-20.22.1.i586[repo-oss]

    patterns-openSUSE-gnome-11.2.20.22.1.x86_64[repo-oss]

    Conflict resolution:

    - deinstallartion of patterns-opensuse-kde4_pure-11.2.20.22.1.x86_64

    - do not install pattern:gnome-11.2.20.22.1.x86_64
