This will likely work for Rocky and CentOS as well.

I recently had to create an AlmaLinux 9.1 workstation for a project. My only complaint is, I'm not a big fan of the Gnome desktop.
It would be nice to have another choice besides the "standard" desktop or the Gnome desktop.

So this is how you can install KDE Plasma on AlmaLinux 9.1

Enable epel9 from rpmfusion.

dnf -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-9.noarch.rpm

Do an update to make sure you have the most recent updates.

dnf update -y

Enable the "code ready builds".

sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled crb

Install KDE

sudo dnf -y groupinstall "KDE Plasma Workspaces" "base-x"

reboot

Select your desktop environment at the login screen from the little "Setup" icon.

Thanks for this. I was going to start dorking around with Alma and Rocky. I hate Gnome.
