    I have Tiger 10.4.7 (Mac OS X) on an Intel Mac. I have successfully installed Fink (latest) and XFree 86 from apt-get.

    I can't seem to get KDE, what gives? I've tried the instructions on this page (a little outdated). I've also tried things like apt-get install kde, apt-get install kde-bundle, apt-get install bundle-kde, etc. etc. etc. to no avail.

    I can get XFree to open OK, etc. I just need to figure out how to get KDE and/or Gnome and don't seem to be getting past this part of the process. Any solutions would be eternally appreciated.

    there is something called fink commander, which give you a UI for install the packages, try if that helps in anyway.
