(wheezy)KDE - cannot install after Gnome installation

Postby mrkapqa » 2017-09-27 16:23

Hello ,

i have installed a Gnome Desktop on my Computer running Debian Wheezy.

Formerly it was easy to install KDE on Top of it;
but now this seems no more possible


KDE-Full or KDE-Standard refer to a package 5:77+ something on Synaptic Package Manager.
But KDE should be still on 4.4 or similar , so the installation does not succeed.
Any hints on how to restore this functionality?

Thank you very much.

When you ask for help solving a problem like this, vague references to "a package 5:77+ something on Synaptic Package Manager" are of no use to the volunteers trying to determine what's causing your issue. That's just how the world works, like it or not.

What is of use is providing the full output, in code boxes here, of you trying to do the same task on the command line with apt-get or aptitude. But we already suspect what your problem is, since 99.9% of similar ones are caused by mixing repositories in your software "channels".

Another way to see what you have in your sources.list file.

Out of the box, apparently not:

As regular user:
Code: Select all
hallvor@debian-hp:~$ inxi -r
bash: inxi: no such command


as root:
Code: Select all
root@debian-hp:/home/hallvor# inxi -r
bash: inxi: no such command

You would need to install inxi to have it work. It is preferred as it lists all sources files, not just sources.list.

Code: Select all
# apt install inxi

Inxi is not available in the Wheezy repos, but can be manually installed very easily. If the OP can install it with apt-get, that would be very telling, though. :)

However, the OP has not bothered to look up anything about inxi, nor tried to answer the first request about sources.list, something that literally only takes seconds to do; instead complaining about not having inxi installed by default. I'm starting to smell either a troll or a help vampire.
