Goog morning to the list,
for all users that are interested about KDE Plasma on Centos 8 you can 
install KDE from epel.

All packages are get from epel-playground and epel-testing and some 
packages seems need to be build.

I run "yum grouplist" and see kde workspace available. I tried to 
install it, reboot my machine and running startx a KDE plasma session 
was correctly launched.

I think that this is a testing release and not ready for production but 
if you want play you can try. Maybe you will find bug and can help EPEL 
to fix.

Best regards.



Thanks for the information.  I am hoping that KDE will eventually get included.  I have a
bunch of scripts that work with konsole that are going to motivate me to use debian if we
can not get konsole working in C8.
