Medic template.svgThis article or section needs expansion.

Reason: Details on installing and configuring KDE and it's various applications. As well as steps for running KDE+SDDM with elogind or consolekit (Discuss)

KDE Plasma 5 is available in Void Linux.

Installation

# xbps-install -S kde5 xorg

Then, activate dbus and sddm services to start KDE and enable it at boot:

# ln -s /etc/sv/dbus /var/service
# ln -s /etc/sv/sddm /var/service

Optionally, install KDE's baseapps package:

# xbps-install -S kde5-baseapps

Be sure to install NetworkManager for the Plasma Network applet to work.

# xbps-install -S NetworkManager

And Alsa to get Audio working if required.

# xbps-install -S alsa-lib 

Troubleshooting

No shutdown, reboot buttons, cannot configure SDDM in KDE Settings, Cannot connect through NetworkManager, Cannot Mount FileSystems... in Plasma

Remove NOX11 from /etc/pam.d/system-login (should be on the pam_ck_connector line) and reboot.

Cannot Shutdown without root

Install Elogind

# xbps-install -S elogind
