Hey! I'm a bit new to Linux - run Ubuntu at home and at school FC8. In class trying to get fedora core to switch from GNOME to KDE using switch desk I receive this: switchdesk KDEFrom a standpoint on never hearing of that package, first thing to do is yum search switchdesk, if it returns nothing, then download the source and compile, or search for the RPM VIA rpmfind.net or rpm.pbone.bnet. The problem is the difference between the distro's and the difference between the software being built into or for the RPM. Sometimes it just isn't in the repo's for whatever reason.bash: switchdesk: command not foundSo I attempted an install.yum install switchdesk Setting up Install Process Parsing package install arguments No package switchdesk available. Nothing to doAgain - I'm very new so I saw this suggestion and decided to try it - not sure of the difference.yum -y install switchdesk Setting up Install Process Parsing package install arguments No package switchdesk available. Nothing to do Really, I'm not sure what groupinstall does but that gives me: Warning: Group switchdesk does not exist. No packages in any requested group available to install or update ((I had used it on a classmates computer and he was able to get to KDE - I guess I'm not so lucky))Really, I'm not sure where to go from here, every attempt of installation or moving on results in a missing dependency or something just not existing.Any ideas?
It may be in a repo, so if you let us know what repo's you are using, it would help out a lot. The repo that most of the time has the off distro stuff is linva, which has a wiki on how to set that up (http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/).
