kcmshell4 is a configuration tool, not the KDE shell.

I'm embarrassed for kcmshell4 (or a workaround for it) and it seems to be trying to drag me into installing most of kde base (for libs and stuff). No Sir!

Is there a workaround, or do I ditch k3b and go looking for another cd burning program?
Of course, now you know how KDE users feel when we try to install one little program and it pulls in Gnome libraries on top of all three versions of GTK.

Thanks for that, thomassisson. You're right. But this thread is quite old. I can only vaguely remember having this problem :-/.

KDE & Gnome try to have everything. I have to suffer one or the other at times, but I never try what you suggest - a gnome program under kde, or vice versa. Slackware offered XFCE as a "Low cholesterol Window Manager," and I was instantly sold.

Warning!

Lest anyone be tempted top replicate my half-assed solution to getting k3b running, I recently tried to burn audio discs, and to put it mildly, they didn't work.

It couldn't find an index - despite all the correct procedures being used, and all the correct looking things happening :-((.

Two wasted Lightscribe CDRs later, I made off to an older box with 13.37 still running and that burned the cd from the same files flawlessly. That's a pain, because that box has the lightscribe cdrom, which slows me down, but such is life.

EDIT: Just to mention, data CDs went fine.
