Hey there! Welcome to AskFedora!

2 options you shall have (in the Yoda voice;):

Use the groups install as @vtrefny said. You have to execute:

$ sudo yum groupinstall "KDE Plasma Workspaces"

or

$ sudo yum install @kde

In the future, to avoid this problem, use the search or list on yum if applicable. For example:

$ sudo yum search kde

In this case, it wouldn't really work. So, naturally, I would resort to the groupinstall. To list all groups available, use the command below:

$ sudo yum grouplist|grep -i KDE

which would return

KDE Plasma Workspaces

So, the one liner to do this would be

$ sudo yum install $(sudo yum grouplist|grep -i KDE)

SUMMARY: Use this command below.

$ sudo yum install $(sudo yum grouplist|grep -i KDE)

or

$ sudo yum install @kde

or

$ sudo yum install @kde-desktop

Hey there! Welcome to AskFedora!

First of all, I've got to warn you about Rawhide. It is the testing for Fedora, I don't recommend you using it unless you are a developer or a really-bored-to-death person like me. Either way, it has some bugs and is not the most stable. If you have installed KDE correctly and this still occurs, it's probably a bug and you want to file it to Redhat Bugzilla. If you haven't or don't think you've installed properly, read the section below (skip to the end if you don't understand/want to learn Linux yum tricks, etc)...

If you are unsure, check the first link. It has a good answer (almost the same as the first answer here though). Anyway, hope you're able to install KDE. I'm a user as well!

HTH,
