I have another system on which I did a fresh install
of 11.2. This is
different from my original post in that I did not do an update to an
earlier KDE. The install added the KDE from the 11.2 update directory
before any users logged in.
The root user KDE looks as expected.
However, I used existing /home directories from the earlier 10.0
install. So they had files for kde 3.something. I get the same ugly
layout with black backgrounds and black text in menus and in the panel.
So it is not limited to doing an update. To KDE. It seems to be the
update to earlier configuration values that individual users have.
If I want to force a users to get 'new' kde settings for everything,
what should I delete? I tried $HOME/.kde and $HOME/.kde4. But when they
came back, the layout was crap. So I am guessing it is a setting
somewhere else that I need to remove.
The plasma theme is not listed in the themes you can select for the
desktop. I see only Air, Air openSUSE (which is what is selected), Aya
and Oxygen. Selecting any of these has little effect.
The themes should be in: kdebase4-openSUSE-11.2-29.31.1.src.rpm
I might have faced the same issue before on openSUSE 11.2 systems.
Please check if you have any kde*upstream packages installed.
rpm -qa \*upstream\*
That had been the case on one of my systems and replacing upstream with
the openSUSE version made the KDE menues look more greenish again.
zypper se here makes the search a bit easier as it is case insensitive.
