  • Install the required applications with the commands given below:
sudo apt-get install kde-minimal
sudo apt-get install kdeplasma-addons
sudo apt-get install plasma-scriptengine-python
  • Create a script to launch gnome desktop with the command:
gedit ~/Desktop/gnome-desktop.sh

  • Make plasma-desktop.sh and gnome-desktop.sh executable with the command
chmod +x ~/Desktop/plasma-desktop.sh
chmod +x ~/Desktop/gnome-desktop.sh
  • Open gconf-editor with the command
gconf-editor
  • In gconf-editor, go to desktop -> gnome -> session -> required_components. Double click the panel option and remove the gnome-panel value. Close it.
  • Now, to get the Plasma Workspace, double click on plasma-desktop.sh, which is located on your desktop, and select Run.
  • To get back the Gnome Desktop, run gnome-desktop.sh, which is in the desktop, in the same way you ran plasma-desktop.sh above.
