Can someone direct me please.


Can somebody please direct me or provide me with a easy to follow install guide for KDE 3.0.3. I installed 3.0.1 before, but then i wiped the HD driv and now I'm back to 2.2.2 and I really liked the way it worked.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Question

which OS (flavor of Linux you running?)

Suse, Red Hat, Debian, Caldera, Mandrake ?

Upgrading to KDE 3.X from 2.2.2 is not a really pretty sight,

without apt-get.

Compile from Source
This take a looong time but will give you better result.

And you will not need to reinstall your system (this is LINUX not WINDOZE, reinstalling isn't an option)

Sure but obviously this person wants a less complicated approach!

Please give the user what they asked for not a round the mountain approach!

A RTFM reply does not really help most people! Think before you respond please!

I could have told him to download the 3 floppy Debian install and install Everything form the net using deb packages.

OR

Download everything as tar gz after rolling your own kernel is another approach too.

Both of these are not helpful approaches for this user!

Think before you type.
