KDE on Zorin 16!

Well my delving into Artix is slowly coming to an end - I can install the printer but can't print from it. Discovered if I used the HP/Jet Direct on Devuan, no issues, but I still think that the fact that Canon is not listed in the Printers section is the issue. Perhaps I ought to go back to Amiga Shell ... I was just getting to grips with that when I took delivery of a PC running Windows 95 and started gaming instead of computing ... and they said the Amiga was just a game's machine! Perhaps I will end up going off-line permanently, back to my first love! ...

That looks like an IBM keyboard. I just wanted to let you know, those original IBM keyboards have a cult following for a good reason. They alone sell on Ebay more then a brand new Chromebook sometimes.

And if you can get that old computer running properly, it can easily be worth 800 dollars or more on the collectors market as well. LGR on Youtube often covers these old machines and talks about that.

This method don't break the system ?
Is safe to use ? I want KDE Plasma on my Zorin os.

I think @Aravisian is the one to ask for how to install alternative desktops on Zorin.

No it won't break the system - you just have another option at login to the default one - look for the cog bottom right of screen to change DE before logging in.

No, it's an Amiga Keyboard, A's instead of Windows keys!


Plus the Amiga never needed a y2k fix - it's processor runs up to 2099! I know, I checked mine!

Thank you for posting that ... I'll give it a try ... tried yesterday to use some instructions and commands from the internet but it ended in disaster ... got a message the said "something went wrong ... please reboot" ... got that each time I clicked on the Cinnamon icon in the Zorom/System Tools ... hope I have better luck with this install ... LOL
