I installed 11.1 shortly after it was released

KDE4.1 as a test bed and to see how I liked it. It was OK but lt lacked
many features. So I waited until 4.2 was released, The other night I did
the "one click" install and came up with a huge amount of dependencies. I
kind of expected that from following the mailing list.
KDE 4.2 was not yet released. http://www.kde.org/
On many of the dependencies the only option was
to uninstall the package.
Kmail was one of them. I OK'd that (and others) thinking they would be
reinstalled. Wrong !!
If you chose to remove them, why would they be re-installed? The software
does whatever you tell it to.
The actual message on the dependency was
"Nothing provides libical0>=0.43
Needed by kdepimlibs4-4.1.96-1.5x86_64" and was the same for many other
apps. Now, kdepimlibs4-4.1 ???? Why ? And the other apps with
dependencies were designated 4.1 also. No upgrades on those packages? And
what the heck is, or where do I find libical0 ?
If you have a look at the repos, there are updated versions of all these,
so either you or your mirror are doing something wrong. There are packages
to be removed, because they do not exist in KDE 4.2 anymore, but certainly
Not only that, when the upgrade was done doing
it's thing, the next time
I booted up 11.1 the whole desktop had changed, theme, everything. AND
the taskbar kicker or whatever it is called now was missing. Gone! I
couldn't figure out how to bring it back or find a way to bring up the
menu or log out.
To add a panel, right-click the desktop to unlock and add a panel. If you
do not care about your desktop settings: open a konsole, do kquitapp
plasma, wait until plasma quit, rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma*, start
So, bottom line, if someone could explain the
libical thing so I can get
Kmail back it would be good. Then maybe I can find out how KDE4.2 is.
Check the repository you use, whther it contains the package. Do not use
smart or anything other than zypper+YaST for upgrading.
soo, a poor soul clicks on the one click install and all that happens...
on a release candidate....
and then he gets scolded .....
I guess i can wait a while before i experiment with whatever magical thing
is all this 4.xx shtuff a microsoft conspiracy / false flag operation or
something like it? sometimes one wonders, but please, don't tell me if you
have to kill me afterwards...
