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!.

Hi Pete,

Many haven't noticed that Sven's answer in the second post of this thread
contains solution, as Randall stated. The only problem is that his answer was
short, simple advice, like many other he is giving around, but that wasn't
the one Randall was looking for.

If you want to have control over kde4 applications you need kde4 utility for
that, which is kcmshell4. The easiest way to have it is to install kde4
desktop. The only problem was that he skipped details and said just "install
kde4" which Randall refused.

Following, somewhat angry response from Sven, can be understood, if you take
that in his opinion he gave the answer that would help, but Randall discarded
it because he did not want whole KDE4, which also can be understood.

All after that is showcase of mutual non-understanding.
Additional comments taking one side as correct doesn't help.
IMHO, the best is to let this episode collect dust in archives.

Regards, Rajko
