Step 3: Switch to KDE Desktop

For this last step in switching to KDE you will need to reboot, you can do this quickly from the terminal if its still open by entering “sudo reboot”. Once you have rebooted you will see an ubuntu logo┬áicon next to your login name, click on that and select KDE and then enter your password. Congratulations, you are now running on KDE!
