Attention!: Before installing KDE, you must install the Basic Graphic Environment (Xorg) and video driver, if you don't have it installed, go to the following guide:
Table of Contents
Install package groups if you only want some modules from the current version of KDE SC. Groups are also useful for users who only want to keep some packages from a group, but are determined to remove the others.
$ sudo pacman -S kde
Use meta-packages if you want to install all the KDE SC, or one or more of its modules as a whole. This ensures a smooth upgrade path by automatically adding new split packages in later versions.
$ sudo pacman -S kde-meta
Minimal KDE Installation:
If you want a minimal installation of KDE SC:
$ sudo pacman -S kdebase phonon-qt4-gstreamer

Support for NetworkManager (applet):

Graphic package manager:

Activate login manager
For a better integration with the desktop it is advisable to use the startup manager KDM.
We activate KDM:
$ sudo systemctl enable kdm.service
Finally we restart the equipment.
$ sudo reboot
Once our system is restarted, we can enjoy KDE.
