I told him that if he wants to _use_ KDE4 apps with double-click, he
has to install it (KDE4).

He does not want to use kde4 apps. He wants to use a kde3 app, and a kde4
app runs instead.

You're a bit late, he already stated that he does know how to install kde3
apps, so if he wanted to use them, no matter whether they were installed
automatically or not, he could have done. Yet he chose to use and ask about
kde4 apps.

I never stated that he wanted to install those apps. His questions
would be pretty useless though, if he did not want to use them, because
in that case he can simply install the KDE3 equivalent.

How? He did not install them. He installed kde3. Those kde4 apps were
forced in by Yast while requesting to install only kde3.

How what? How to install apps if they are not installed? He cannot install
them because he did not install them? That does not make sense to me. And
as stated above, he knows how to install kde3 apps, so in any case, if he
wants to use them, he can just install them. If he uses kde4 apps instead,
he either does not know how to install them or he does not want to use

If he would not know how to install them and would thus be forced to work
with what the installation pre-selected, you would be right though. Yet
that's not the case.


Sven ..

You are mixing up the meanings and wording of things once again .

I have kept quiet about this so far but it seems it is something you are vey
good at maybe not deliberatley but still you do on a regular basis

He has installed and set to DOUBLE CLICK ! BUT as is the PITA ways
of 11.0 and 11.1 it also installs an amount of apps that DO NOT play
by the same rules as the apps they will not obey the
settings and work DOUBLE CLICK but keep on their own merry ways of SINGLE
CLICK , what he wants is to know HOW to force these AUTOMATICALLY installed apps to behave correctly and use DOUBLE CLICK as there
counterparts do WITHOUT INSTALLING ALL of

maybe you understand now Eh!.
