I installed 11.1 shortly after it was released and
elected to install
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
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
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
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 plasma again.
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.
