KDE on OpenSolaris

Install Final Version of KDE Desktop on OpenSolaris

it’s very simple and quick

1- Add repository for KDE inside your IPS system with Manager of Package or use Command Line from Terminal

with this Command

pfexec pkg set-authority -O http://solaris.bionicmutton.org:10001/ bionicmutton
2- Refresh pkg Repository

with Command

pfexec pkg refresh bionicmutton
3- You must Add base to have KDE

with Command

pfexec pkg install KDEbase-apps  KDEgdm-integration

After that You Must to logout from your Desktop and relogin with new Desktop (KDE)
and there is more version and more packages for KDE from all this repository

Use http://solaris.bionicmutton.org:10001/ for KDE version 4.3.1

(This is the version I’ve mostly been using and it seems fine)

Use http://solaris.bionicmutton.org:10002/ for KDE version 4.3.80

(Not tested yet)

User http://solaris.bionicmutton.org:10003/ for KDE version 4.3.85

(I have only tested this today and Konqueror and KMail keep crashing)

This first pkg installs the KDE distribution, the second allows the user to choose KDE from the login menu.
