KDEmod is a modular and tweaked version of the K Desktop Environment that has been optimized for ArchLinux. The project contains additional patches for eyecandy and functionality and a slightly enhanced QT3 installation, and is available in Archs standard .pkg.tar.gz package format for i686 and x86_64.

Started in june 2006, the KDEmod desktop was brought to life because of the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) nature of Arch Linux, which means that Archs KDE is built from the standard unmodified KDE distribution, thus providing the whole KDE Desktop without any modifications or additions.

This is generally not a bad thing, but many users do not need a full-fledged KDE Desktop installed with apps they maybe never use. Arch is a small distribution and the developers are on more important missions to improve the best distribution on the planet (tm), so KDEmod was born to provide a fully modular installation of KDE with nearly all the features and bling some bigger distributions provide with KDE - and partly even more bleeding-edge features.

KDEmod provides the sophistication, stability and feature-richness of KDE but its also a work in progress, so please report any glitches you may encounter. Nearly all KDE apps and modules are available as splitted versions in the repositories, and we will continue to improve them and provide a refined and optimized KDE desktop for ArchLinux. It will be enhanced and supported until the end of the KDE3 life-cycle. When KDE4 is released, we will see if its necessary to continue this distribution...
