Can someone explain -- or point to the relevant docs which explain -- how to use the KDE 3 overlay ? Perhaps this sb in the news announcement. I've successfully installed most of KDE 4.3.1 , but without the desktop stuff, for which I have adopted Fluxbox. I still have remnants of KDE 3.5.10 (details from my personal pkg list): W 090501 kde-base/kdeartwork-kworldclock-3.5.10 090606 kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.10-r6 [ 16 min ] W 080924 kde-base/kmahjongg-3.5.10 W 080924 kde-base/ksokoban-3.5.10 W 090501 kde-base/kworldclock-3.5.10 080924 kde-base/libkdegames-3.5.10 [for kmahjongg etc] Kmahjongg 4 lacks the removed-tiles display (it's promised); Ksokoban hasn't been ported to KDE 4 (someone's working on it); Kworldclock shows local times around the globe, which Marble should show, but doesn't (yet?). Everything still works & nothing (3 & 4) interferes with anything else. Hopefully, it won't be difficult for users to keep KDE 3 items as long as they need them & don't cause any other problems. -- ========================,,============================================ SUPPORT ___________//___, Philip Webb ELECTRIC /] [] [] [] [] []| Cities Centre, University of Toronto TRANSIT `-O----------O---' purslowatchassdotutorontodotca
