Subject: [gentoo-user] KDE4 / kmail / konsole
Date: Wed, 23 Jan 2008 19:27:55
1 Hi folks,
3 About KDE 4.0.0.
5 I have formerly reported that konsole would crash on startup and kamil would
6 not start at all. It's all solved by now.
8 The problem with konsole was all my fault. I crated the test user for KDE4
9 without a shell. ;-( Dunno, how this could have happened but it did. I gave
10 the user a shell, and konsole was happy afterwards.
12 Did an "emerge --update --deep --newuse world" after adding a couple of USE
13 flags. This resulted in 309 packages to be emerged. A revdep-rebuild
14 afterwards wanted to re-emerge another 9 packages. Did that, too. Now, kmail
15 will start from krunner without a problem (and without using kontact).
17 So the stumbling blocks for using KDE 4.0.0 as my default desktop have
18 disappeared. Unfortunately, I won't have much time tomorrow. So over Friday
19 and the weekend, I will try to make KDE4 my default desktop after backing up
20 all stuff like ~/.kde*.
22 This new desktop looks extremely interesting even without all the
23 functionality of KDE 3.5.x.
25 Finally, I am there!
27 Uwe
29 PS: It's impressive even with my shitty video sub-system that does not allow
30 for composite.
