I'm a long time user of Debian/Ubuntu, but since I've retired, I'm learning other distros, and Funtoo seemed like a good choice to start with.. Following the excellent step-by-step instructions, I installed Funtoo into a Virtualbox VM on my Ubuntu system. Everything went perfectly up until I hit the epro profile configuration portion. Since I'm a KDE user, I wanted to install KDE on the Funtoo VM, and proceeded to add KDE as a mix-in. A "epro show" shows I have "workstation (from desktop flavor)" and the "Enabled Profiles" show KDE as a mix-in.. After doing this, I did an "emerge --sync" then an "emerge -auDN @world" and stupid me neglected to configure Virtualbox to use 2 of my 4 processors, and that emerge ran for quite a few hours.. I assumed that after it completed, I'd have KDE installed on the VM.. But I see nothing in any of the directories that various KDE support sites show as major directories for KDE 4. I notice there is a mix-in for "kde-plasma-5" but I don't care for it, so I went with the "kde" mix-in, which I assume is KDE4.. I must be missing something important, but your documentation I've read over and over doesn't clue me in on just what that might be...

 

Thanks

Dave

Thanks for the reply.. Guess I'll try XFCE or something else besides KDE.. I detest KDE5 and will not use it.. Wish there was *some* indication of this *somewhere* on the website..
