Why KDE is not on the Downloads page?

Post by metal-dude » 18. Aug 2017, 18:34

Hi everybody, I'd like to ask 2 questions about Salix, I'm interested in installing Salix Linux KDE, but I see there's no KDE download option or link in the Salix Official Download page, I realize there's a link for downloading it on "Sourceforge" Here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/salix/files/14.0/ But why not including it in the Salix official Download page?

Second question is, will KDE/Plasma 5 be available in future releases of Salix?
SalixOS x64, XFCE 4.12, Kernel 4.4.19, Pentium Dual-Core E5300 @ 2.6Ghz, Gigabyte G41M-ES2L, Intel 4 Series Integrated Graphics Controller, 1Tb Caviar Black WD1001FALS.

its in the repos, just not as an iso. You can do a minimal install and install KDE, or do the full install for Xfce and install KDE as well after, but that might jumble up your menu.

Thanks for your answer, I have decided to use XFCE, I'll open another thread to ask what can I do to make "Whisker" Menu work in Salix Linux XFCE!

Xfce can do everything Kde can do. It takes just a touch more work. :) For example I have an article that shows how to put different icons on each desktop.
