I'm running suse 9.0 with kde 3.1.4 that comes with
suse. I recently changed the file permissions in Yast
from easy to secure. Since then I have failed to login
kde as root though I can login as root on the console.
I changed the permission back to easy but still I
can't login as root. I've seen similar cases on the
mailinglists but all solution they are giving are not
helping me, i.e., /opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
should be a simbolic link to
/etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc. I also checked
that I have AllowRootLogin=true in
/etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc. I don't know if
there is anything more I need to check.

I've downloaded the RPMs from SuSE to upgrade KDE to 3.2 from the 3.14 that
ships with SuSE 9.0. I cannot finish installing the .RPMs as once I
installed kdebase3 and removed old konqueror, kate, etc KDE 3.2 lost YaST as
default installer for .rpm files.
Anyone know the x app to call for YaST2? It appeared to be /sbin/YaST2 but it
isn't working. I get the prompt to enter admin password, but nothing happens
from then on.
Alternatively, does anyone know the shell syntax for rpm to remove old
conflicting copies as well as to install the new apps, etc? I am using
rpm -ivh <file>.rpm
it tells me the conflicting files but then bombs.

I was thinking of upgrading my SuSE-9.0 to KDE-3.2.2 (using 3.2.0
now). So I downloaded all the packages from a KDE mirror.
Going through the list of files raised some questions I'd like to have
answered before I start, though... I hope you can help.
1) kdebindings seems to be missing
There are no packages kdebindings3-*-3.2.2.
lists kdebindings3-*-3.1.4. The KDE-3.2.2 info page does list a
Do I install the 3.1.4 packages?
2) languagepack is called *.src.rpm
All languagepacks are named as source rpms. `rpm -qpl' looks okay,
though, so I guess this should have just been *.noarch.rpm.
Just install it?
3) kde-3.2.2 contained bugs
The KDE-3.2.2 info page shows some bugs. Since the SuSE-KDE packages
date from before the official KDE-3.2.2 release date, I guess those
bugs are still present in the packages?
And now that I'm sending this mail anyway, could someone explain to me
why SuSE chooses to split up all KDE packages into smaller (but more)

I have found the following additional issues with KDE 3.2.x running with my
SuSE 9.0 distribution:
1) MSFonts have been altered. Bold is blurred on my display (Dell Trinitron
2) Windows do not come up sized uniformly. For example, I am unable to modify
panel attributes from the KControl application since I cannot see the bottom
of the window to click on OK. What is the shell command to change panel
3) Right mouse hovers over icons in the panel and elsewhere do not "evaporate"
when the mouse is moved away. <escape> does not remove them either. This is
particularly vexing in the panel area as the titles obscure other icons that
After upgrading to the latest Gaim via apt, Gaim now starts up twice when
logging into KDE. I have checked the autostart directory, but nothing is in
there. I have closed Gaim, logged out (forcing the session to save), and
logged back in. Gaim (as it should) does not start. If I then start Gaim,
log out, then log back in, Gaim starts twice.

I'm using SuSE 9.1 with the generic KDE 3.2.1 istallation. The KDE startup notification doesn't sound however the other system notifications work properly. I changed the startup melody but there is no positive effect. -Bela-
I changed the mouse pointer theme for root and every common user, and I also changed the default mouse pointer in YaST's sysconfig editor (SuSE 9.1). But the KDM login manager does'nt follows these settings. In KDM the mouse pointer remains the unthemed one. I never met this bug under SuSE 9.0. -Bela-
I'm using "Muse", a Qt-based sequencer on SuSE 9.1 with KDE 3.2.1. If I choose to cre
at a new project and/or open a new file, Muse loses its window decoration. The upgrad
e to KDE 3.2.2 dosn't solve this bug. -Bela-
