[jessie] installing kde without systemd?

Postby systemd » November 3rd, 2014, 1:05 am


I have installed systemd-shim yet when trying to install kde-plasma-desktop, I am getting the following error due to udisks2:

Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 kde-plasma-desktop : Depends: udisks2[ but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I think kde is a great platform for people who want to continue using Debian without systemd (I am already using Xfce4 and LXDE but not completely satisfied. Gnome is a lost cause)

Is there a way to remove udisks2 dependency from official repo or a workaround for now?

You can try installing udisks instead of udisks2. The only conflicting program with that is k3b on my system. You can try to contact k3b maintainer to ask if they can do something with that.
