KDE was part of RHEL up until RHEL 8. At that point the majority of KDE was removed, with only some qt5 packages left. This allowed the EPEL community to build KDE in EPEL.


Install epel-release

rpm -Uvh

Enable codeready-builder or PowerTools

If RHEL 8:

  • subscription-manager repos --enable codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms

If CentOS 8:

  • dnf config-manager --enable PowerTools

Install KDE

  • dnf group install kde-desktop
  • (Optional) dnf group install kde-media
  • (Optional) dnf group install kde-apps
  • (Optional) dnf install okular

(Optional if Workstation already installed) Set sddm as desktop manager

  • systemctl set-default
