I want to use Gnome(classic version preferably) as my work desktop, while using kde for other stuff, but I’m not sure how to do that properly.
I mean installation is easy, “sudo pacman -S gnome”, but that’s adds about 10 entries on the login screen and they don’t make sense cause for example you have “Gnome Wayland Classic” alongside with “Gnome Classic(Wayland)”. I only need one entry for Gnome Classic, what can I do?
Plus I’m concenred about “default app for” bugging cause I’ll have 2 desktops, I heard that it’s better to use 2 users with 1 desktop each for that, but maybe there is something else that I need to know?
You may want to consider a separate installation so you have Gnome and KDE on separate partitions. Or run one of them in a virtual machine. I think it’s a bad idea to have to separate desktops environments on one installation.
You could share a data partition for both OS, then you might need to assign only something like 15 GiB to each OS. If you share your storage status we might be able to provide more detailed suggestions.
