Don't let kde4 worry you. You'll get used to it in minutes.


Nope. Still haven't gotten used ot it. Too much going on.


Not really. To me kde4 is looking just like kde3 did - the only think
missing is the ability to have different wallpapers on each separate
desktop. I know that this can be done thru Activities, but this is not
for me and I am happy with what I see.


The only thing is *not* to Enable all the desktop effects and save lots
of cpu cycles in not running all the eye-candy.


Yeah, I requested that KPersonalizer get ported to make that easy, but
didn't happen yet.


Oh, is there some sort of Personalizer which may need tweeking? I just
did not tick the Enable box in Desktop settings.


Also, download and compile the nVidia driver from nVidia. Makes a BIG
difference. The "default" excuse for an nvidia driver installed by 11.2
only gave me ~136fps (using glxgears), the compiled driver (190.42)
gives me ~3660fps.


I haven't installed the nVidia driver on his machine yet. Was hoping
that the repo would be up but haven't seen it yet(haven't looked today
tho).


Now, am I mistaken and did not understand what I think I may have read,
but I thought that nVidia driver is no longer available as part of
zypper or YaST because nvidia decided that it is a proprietary driver
and will not make it available except thru their own site?

I think that is in error.....it's supposed to be available, although I
haven't seen it yet and need to! ;)
