I run factory and used the Alpha 5 installer...Do not have to compare but can
see the icons popping up in KDE.

However the updater icon used in KDE was from the Gnome look. There were many
complaining when devving 10.1 allready.

I want that the old one are used instead of all the Novell-brand ones that
comes from SLED.... playing with colors inside Gimp can turn Gnome-styles
into like-KDE-styled.. However I allready made an new icon for AppArmor cause
it is not sharp aan looks (or looked) out of order in never went
into while it IS/WAS better.....

I am calm, but is is annoying. I am not gonna get mad about it..... I see some
cewl KDE-things happening (Kickoff is going to be cool (is allready)). But
those icons are slipping into KDE. They are just misplaced.

However I would still recommend openSUSE 10.2 to friend cause even ZEN seems
to get working :D, Kickoff, bit install-refreshment, patterns and so on.
openSUSE still rocks, but would be rocking even more when KDE wouuld use only
KDE-styled icons ;-)
