I am a big fan of Light Weight Desktop environments and a long time user of XFCE Desktop. As it’s a lightweight Desktop Environment and basically, I just don’t like to waste my resources on some stupid animations.
So here’s a quick tutorial to install KDE Plasma 5 Desktop in Arch Linux.
Note: If you’re an existing user of KDE 4, then just keep in mind that KDE 4 and KDE 5 can’t run together. Thus you need to remove the previous KDE 4 installation.
sudo pacman -Rc kdebase-workspace
For successfully installing KDE type/ paste following commands in Terminal.
Perform full system update:
sudo pacman -Syu
Install KDE Desktop
sudo pacman -S plasma
you might get a choice for selecting some packages, in case there are two packages to be installed. In this case, select the default one’s unless you know what you are doing.
If you would like to request any tutorial or find any grammatical errors, feel free to leave a comment about it.
