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 them.

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!.

Apparently you did not read the thread, otherwise you would have come across:

I told him he needs systemsettings (/usr/bin/systemsettings) which, as he
found out is part of kdebase4, so installing it, is part of the solution he
was looking for (setting double-click for kde4 apps), as there is no solution
without installing it. Hence, if he wants to _use_ them with double-click he
has to _install_ them. I never said he wanted to install them in the first
place, but as he did not install the kde3 ones when he noticed that only the
kde4 ones were installed, he wanted to use them, with double-click.

And again, no matter what openSUSE installed by default, if he did not want to
use it, he could have installed the kde3 apps. After that both are shown in
the menu.

Is that really that hard to understand. Maybe you confuse systemsettings and
