I'm a newbie to Linux & have found pclos kde to be my distro of choice. However I would like to also try pclos gnome (which I have already downloaded) but, unlike the kde version, it will not connect my 3G automatically, it mentions something like "can not download/install ppp, comgt".
I have tried searching the forums but have only found customized threads but nothing about what I am after.
Would it be OK to download from pclos kde the ppp 2.4.4-1pclos2010 & comgt 0.32-1pclos2007 then install them into the gnome version? If so, will I need older versions since my pclos-gnome has not been updated?
While I am here I may as well ask; is it possible to install kde & gnome together? When I first installed Linux the magazine that supplied the gnome version mentioned a way to install a few kde files to "give the look of kde but without actually being kde". Can I do this with pclos?
I forgot to mention that one of the thread I found while searching mentioned installing usb_modeswitch (http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,67741.0.html
), will I need that as well? In other words, what will I need for pclos-gnome that the kde already has (which allows 3G internet without any downloading/installing)?
