I have SUSE 8.0 on Athlon 1600 xp, 256 MB ram,
Matrox G550. I have two problems:
1) Sometimes it takes very long time (even 2 min.)
for kde to start after startx command, both as root
or normal user.
2) When I issue the command to exit kde to go
back to the command line the screen turns black,
the hard disk stop and everything seems to be dead
(no response to ctrl-alt-bksp either). I have to reset.
Any idea ? Thanks a lot. Riccardo, Italy.
I installed somebody a linux machine with SuSE 8.1 with KDE
3.0.3 on it.
Unfortunately, the Icon for oooqs and kinternet didn't appear
in the panel but they have been running.
When I tried to start kinternet manually I got the msg
'kinternet is yet running. It's the small plug icon in your
panel.' But there has been no Icon in the panel.
So the user has to use cinternet in the console, but this
isn't as comfortable as kinternet.
The oooqs icon didn't also appear in the panel, so I wonder if
there is a little trick to get this working.
I know that the disappearing of kinternet from the panel was
discussed somewhere before but I do not refind nor in my
mailer nor via google or the SuSE SDB. So thanks for your
tips: Even links to the right information are very welcome.
Have nice days installing the latest KDE-release ;-) .

I've had the same problem, too. It also happens with knotes 2.2x
under kde 3.01. I hope you get an answer on this.

After upgrading SuSE 8.1 to KDE 3.0.4, Kmail no longer shows SpamAssassin
markup when viewing mail using long headers.
Is there a way to select which headers one can view using long headers?
Thanks in advance.

You mean the support for XRender? Yes, I have actual Nvidia drivers which have
full XRender support.
But I solved the problem.
What I needed was a line in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XftConfig
That was all (beside the prerequisites stated above).
Hope, I could help some people on this list here with my detailed infos.
I am running SuSE 8.1 I had a working version of kde 3.1 beta 2. I installed
this by donwloading the binaries from download.kde.us.org.
I did a rpm -Uvh --force kde*
because it said there was a conflict between the new kdebase3 and keramik.
Everything worked fine after the install.
Later I added kde-unstable to my sources list in apt. I am using apt .54.
Using synaptic, I did an apt-get update. This revealed some newer kde packages.
When I tried to upgrade it said conflict with keramik (and some number like 202
etc). I did an rpm -e keramik (since I had updated the kdebaase3 I figured I
didn't need keramik) and then did an upgrade from synaptic. Everything went
fine. I ran SuSEconfig and ldconfig.
Upon reboot i get the same graphical login screen. I clik on mikecoan, enter my
password. kde is specified as the windowmanager. i click Go, or hit enter, and
Windowmaker starts up.
I used Yast to switch to runlevel 3. After loggin in as mikecoan, the command
still starts Windowmaker.
I tried WINDOWMANAGER=kde
That didn't help, but I may not have the syntax right.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
The past couple of days when I tried to print a file from File Manager
the Print Konq box pops up but the name area and print command are
greyed out. I can still use Print a file just fine. Another thing is
when using print a file the text was printed in about 8pt which is what
I like, but the print from file manager was in 12pt or more, which I do
not like. Suggestions.
I've read all the mails and articles about this very annoing subject, to
get KDE3 on SuSE 7.3 using antialiased fonts.
So I got the xf86 4.2.0 packages for SuSE 7.3 and the QT3 Packages from
SuSE 8.0 (to have QT3 with xft support) and used the actual freetype2 libs
from mfabian's homedir to have the bytecode interpreter enabled.
every qtrc (global and user) has the entries:
I checked the checkbox in kcontrol for antialiased fonts and made sure, it
is enabled in qtconfig (think thats the option in qtrc, too, but I checked
But all truetype fonts are still not antialiased.
Does anyone know what I could be still missing now?
How do I change the font size that KDE prints in 8.0.
The font size it is using is 12-14 I would like to change this to 8.
It seems that all my print sizes have changed since I upgraded to 3.0.4.
I also upgraded Mozilla at the same time so I do not know what has
caused this mess up but Mozilla also prints in a large font.

I recently tried to use my mobile phone with kde and was surprised that I
can't find the program kandy which is supposed to do exactly that. I have the
kdepim-package installed but, plainly said, don't have kandy. Any advice on
what I could do or does somebody know any alternative?
I use KDE 3.0.3 on a SuSE 8.1 machine and a Siemens phone, by the way.
