How to download and install KDE Desktop

Hi all,

I have installed Ubuntu Server Edition with automatic LAMP.  I really need a GUI on the server OS so would like to add KDE Desktop to it.  From the command line how can I get the binary / installer and get the desktop up and running?  I could not find the binary release from KDE website... but its there somewhere?  Im not motivated to try and compile from source unless its much less painless than it sounds.

Thanks for your help,

The best idea is use  istallation cd (upgrade)

or if you want to install from web you need to install a lot of packages.

so you have to use yum or apt-get to do the all


just use

yum install kde*

or

apt-get install kde*
or

this are the use full packs

kdegraphics
kdeutils
kdegames-devel
kdenetwork
switchdesk-kde
kdeartwork
kdelibs
kdebase
kdemultimedia
kdegames
kdeaddons

Hi NIPPLES,

run from the command line

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

this is a metapackage with kde and all the needed utilities

Hope this helps!
