I have Debian Linux 2.1. I want to use KDE and since it's not included as standard I have downloaded all of the essential packages and some non-essential ones as well. When I try to install each one, one-by-one, using "dpkg -i packetname.deb" it has dependencies problems. What is the best way to install it and where do I set it up in /etc/X11/window-managers?? What is the correct path for it??
Thanks very much.

you need to make sure all dependancies are satisfied. make sure youve got qt

when you go to install the packages, just install them all in the one command, and it will sort itself out properly ie

dpkg -i qt kdelibs kdebase kdestuff
