Now that I'm running openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 3.5, I am also occasionally

~/.kde and ~/.kde4 to ~/.kde-double and ~/.kde4-double, then did startx;
konsole; systemsettings, went to keyboard/mouse settings, changed from 2

don't want to install enough of KDE4 to have a /usr/bin/systemsettings to
run, is to in ~/.kde4/share/config/kdeglobals change from SingleClick=true to
