After updating my Suse 9.2 from KDE 3.4.1 to 3.4.2, one of the users
(only this one) has an empty list of screensavers.
It still works OK for other users!
I tried to rename .kde with no positive effect.
Out of the blue, I restored a Suse 9.0 user directory from that user and
started with that and the screensavers where there again! Then, with the
9.2 user directory, they were there, too.
After working for a few days, the list of screensavers is empty again
for that user.
What can that be?
Thank you for the answer, but maybe I was not very clean in my ask:
I can manually mount and read/write to the floppy (umount, too) but my
GUI doesn't mount it for me! How to explain KDE to do it for me when I
open the floppy from the icon I have on my GUI?

running SuSE 9.3 I can access to floppy disk (/media/floppy) from a
terminal but not from GUI (KDE 3.4.0 level "b").
As I click on the floppy disk icon a message box appear: "The
process for the protocol media is unespectly dead" or something like
this (I've an italian installation) and the system isn't able to mount
the floppy. If I access the /media/floppy with the konqueror browser all
work fine, too.
Anyone else running into problems with Juk? If I try and play
anything, the title shows up as if the song is playing, but no sound,
no anything. The progress bar never moves. I first noticed this on
I am using BMP at the moment, so I know that sound works.
I understand that there are numerous problems with Amarok as well. Did
a recent update break KDE's music players?
Thanks in advance.
I solved my problem! When I create the user I copied the .kde folder
from another user (to have the same settings) and I found that in a file
was written the directory of the previous user, so the changes was made
for the other user ;-)
Thank you all 4 your kind help!

Under SuSE 9.2/KDE 3.3.2 Level "a", by default, Kicker's parameter
"ReduceMenuDepth" is set to true. This means that sub menus in the K
menu are not shown if they only have one entry.
Now, we'd like to have the parameter "ReduceMenuDepth" set to "false"
for just one menu and its sub menus. Is this possible? If not, is it
possible to add invisible dummy entries to a menu?
If all else fails, are there any alternative menu applets that we could
use? Note: All we want is to create a customized menu that is
accessible from kicker. It doesn't necessarily have to be accessible
from the K menu.

since i upgradet to KDE-3.4.3 on OpenSuSE-10.0 I have a strange
Problem with HAL. It looks like KDE was build without HAL Support.
When i plugIn my USB HardDrive nothing is shown up on the Desktop.
When i enter a DVD the DVD is shown up, but only as "DVD(/dev/hdd)",
not with it Name...
So everthing what is in the fstab becomes a desktop Icon, everthing
what´s not in the fstab, but was mountet by HAL/subfs into /media,
becomes no Icon.
So the Question is if anybody knows which Package is responsible for
HAL support, and how do i have to modify the spec to have HAL
The subject says it all I guess.
I want to test KDE 3.5b2, but if I have a problem I would like to return to
KDE 3.43. I know that YaST detects the prescence of newer versions of
packages and hence I can use "Update all in this list when a new version is
available" but I am not sure this will work in the reverse direction - tell
me when an *older* version is available.
Can anyone give me a set of instructions to "safely" test 3.5b2?
How can I add a dial-up provider that has a blank username and password in
SuSE 10. Since my dial up internet connection provider bills the phone line
that you connect from.
YaST2 won't accept entering a blank username. I did edit the file
/etc/sysconfig/netwrok/providers/provider0 but the Kinternet won't work this
