Everything About Packages

Oh wow, I guess I checked right before the update. Thanks!

I have installed both the KDE (Dragonized) and Gnome versions of Garuda and both have an optional post installation step 'Install additional [KDE / GNOME] applications' but there is no further explanation or list of packages (at least that I could see).

Is there an easy way to see what packages are installed by this step? Does this step refer to a specific metapackage?

Have you checked to see if detailed on the gitlab?

Here are the lists: (should be selfexplaining I guess?)

Thank you @dr460nf1r3 just what I was looking for!

Wow KDE installs a bunch more additional packages compared to GNOME, but I suppose this is inline with the philosophies of each DE.

Actually most of these are redundant as they are installed anyway, gotta clean this up :smiley:

...It looks like many of these packages (konsole, kate, dolphin, plasma-desktop for instance) would be installed during the initial installation.

Is there a way to see just the additional/new packages that would be installed?

The same step for gnome...

...appears to only list the additional/new packages which will be installed.

edit: oops, looks like the conversation moved forward before i posted (took me forever to format it lol, i'm new to discourse).

I think gnome-web should be added.

If you point me to a list of the packages that are installed by default during installation, I would be happy to manually cross-reference and put together a list of only the differences. I imagine there is a smarter more automated way to accomplish this but I am a luddite... :wink:

3 posts were split to a new topic: Live ISO not updating properly

After almost 2 hours and a few failures, I managed to get Flightgear up and running on Garuda KDE.

I was wondering how to get my hands on riseup email, and thanks to this guy I now know that riseup-vpn exists. It's one of the first FOSS VPN's, so we should definitely add this and recommend it in case someone needs a VPN.

Extra sausages (German idiom) have to be cooked by yourself.
You can get Riseup-VPN via the Snap-Store. Garuda supports that.

Nope :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

You can use whatever you want but flatpack and snapcraft are not supported by Garuda. :slight_smile:
