Install KDE

How do Install KDE or Beyrl into Darn Small Linux or Puppy Linux? P.S. I'm not a programmer but I will try. Please don't be rude.

First

of all Compiz Fusion is the new compositing manager, which is a fusion of Beryl and Compiz. I would use not use KDE for a thumb drive Linux. I think DSL is Debian based so check this for the packages you want: http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages

DLS is based off of Knoppix (in which then Knoppix is based off of Debian :P)

Question?

So what exactly am I looking at?

self.path = path if self.path == None else self.path

Your best bet

is to get support from Damn Small Linux's forum and not here, they are the experts of their OS and would be better suited to answer your question for you

Pretty easy

It's in fact pretty easy to do that. First thing to do is to check if there is any KDE package in PupGet (Puppy Only) or MyDSL (DSL only). If there aren't any KDE packages you have to find the packages. Try Espreon's link for DSL (not sure if Debian based). OR try this link for puppy packages.

There's no need to be a programmer (I don't know NOTHING about programing and I use Linux Wink ).

Blue is everything.

It's actually quite easy.

It's actually quite easy. You'll need a few packages from KDE.Org (grab the KDE source package and it's dependacies) then all you need to do is extract, navigate to it in bash ("cd /home/user/path") then type "./configure" if that finishes with no errors type "make" then type "make install".

Refer to http://docs.kde.org/development/en/kdebase/faq/install.html for more information. Programmer knowedge is not required. (But it is a big help)

Hmm?
