Of all linux desktops KDE is the one I like most, XFCE is lighter, and as IT I do some social works fixing older PC´s for marginal schools in some "barrios" in Argentina. We are talkin about Pentium IV (guac) with 512 kb RAM or so..... Forget Windows, forget KDE.....
Quote from: paxmark1 on October 16, 2018, 03:16:50 AMtasksel does not seem to work so well, might be a sparky-lightdm versus sddm thing. Who knows. as normal user, "sudo sparky-desktop kde" fixed the hangup when KDE went to sleep and would shift from lightdm to sddm. I did it on the pre-existing virtual machine with the previous tasksel install and the "sudo sparky-desktop kde" modified some of the KDE programs installed. The glitch that had a total lockup in Vbox (no virtual teminals) disappeared. But as above, KDE is the most memory and cpu intensive DE around probably. xfce and lxqt are your best bets for small memory DE's. Some of those old computers (and their fans) will consume lots of energy.
