The desktop task offered to you in the debian-installer
process installs both GNOME and KDE, but GNOME is chosen as
the default environment.

If you do not select the desktop task, but instead go for
manual package selection, you can install the kde package

Note that there might be other components pulled in by the
desktop task that are not depended on by the kde package
(e.g. xserver-xfree86).

I deselected the desktop. Installed the rest. Then apt-get install
kde. When all was done. startx gave an error.
Will manual selection of packages at install time produce same results
as apt-get install kde?

If so that will give me an error therefore it might or might not be a
use to me. Are there any other options?
