The KDE on Solaris project is quite long in the tooth now.
GNOME is the only desktop environment we offer as part of Solaris 11. A simple "pkg install solaris-desktop" command will get that added to your installation.1 person found this helpful
when i ran that command it downloads pkg online for abt 540mb is it stored in some were if yes may i know were its stored
i can use it for my next vm. Also is it worth downloading 6gb repo for solaris wat it contains other than GUI
thanks for answer
If you want to install a desktop by default, I'd suggest downloading the live CD and installing from it as it'll give you exactly the solaris-desktop package set, and do so more quickly than the two-step process you've gone through in this case.1 person found this helpful
Running your own repository can be useful if you're going to deploy a lot of Solaris instances.
actually KDE4 works quite well on S11, although the development is a bit slow nowadays. The last version known to build and run on S11 is 4.8.4
