Once you have your unmasking completed, you'll just need to install the meta package, which will pull in all the dependencies.

I'm getting this error when I'm editing the package.keyword file:

"Writing error when attempting to save file:///etc/entropy/packages/package.keywords"

Any reasons why?

root edits config files, not user

Got KDE working on my computer, thanks for the help! :D

Edit: Except for internet. My wireless was working. Then as soon as i installed Kde, I lost it. And I can't find it.

It's not the best fix, actually its kind of a hack-job, but it works. KDE4.0 installs fine, if you just follow the instructions that wolfden posted. Make sure you do everything in root, else it wont work. For internet, log on in xfce, make sure you have a connection, then log on as KDE4 and you have internet. There is probably a cleaner fix, but it works. If anything, use a cable.

P.S
You add all those package names strait to package.keywords
