Install KDE on Fedora 13

Install KDE on Fedora 13

If you downloaded and installed Fedora 13,  most likely you are using the GNOME desktop. If you’ve been reading me here on Ghacks long enough then you know I am fairly partial to the GNOME desktop. That doesn’t mean I feel KDE should get the cold shoulder. In fact, the latest iterations of KDE have made AMAZING strides in reaching (and nearly surpassing) GNOME in stability and speed. Because of this I have started a new “push” to cover the KDE desktop. But...
