  • Had the same problem, but didn't want plasma-desktop as I'm installing on a cutdown netbook. Eventually found

    Alt+F2 then type plasma-netbook

    to get the interface. Looked in System Settings > Startup and Shutdown and noticed that the "plasma-netbook" entry had a "--desktop" option. I disabled it and created an entry with just the "plasma-netbook" command. The system now works without having to have installed the "kde-plasma-desktop" package.

    Hope that helps
