How to install Xfce - opensuse11.4

There were no options to select two desktops at once during installation. I am running  KDE but find it too resource hungry.
Cannot install via YaST. I would like to know how to get it installed from the distro DVD.
Thanks in advance

Re: How to install Xfce - opensuse11.4

Your question is Opensuse specific so you may have better chance on OpenSuse forum.
If you don't use yast, there is zypper that is command line.
For xfce, you can install from the xfce pattern :

zypper in -t pattern xfce

This will pull a lot of packages ..

Or by simply install some xfce "branding"  package and the dependencies do the rest :

zypper in xfce4-panel-branding-openSUSE xfce4-settings-branding-openSUSE xfce4-splash-branding-openSUSE xfwm4-branding-openSUSE thunar-volman-branding-openSUSE xfdesktop-branding-openSUSE xfce4-session-branding-openSUSE xfce4-settings-branding-openSUSE xfce4-panel-branding-openSUSE

Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
