KDE Control Center


Hi!

I use Mdk 9.0 and I added some RPMs I needed (or tought I needed) and since then, many icons disapeared from the taskbar wich include the kde control panel... Is there any way I can have the control panel back and the other options?

Right click on the taskbar and choose the add option from the menu and add your shortcut for the items you want back to the taskbar.

By any chance did you mix KDE versions? I mean did you add KDE rpms which are a different release than the KDE rpms that you already had installed. If you mix KDE versions you can get all sorts of flaky errors.

I'm pretty sure that's the problem... I tought the RPMS were enough "intelligent" to not allow me to mess with the versions I use...

Now, how can I resolve the problem?

You could use the command:
rpm -qa > rpm.list.txt
to list all of your rpms.

Then go through the list and figure out which KDE, Qt, arts, xmllib, and xsltlib packages are out of sync. Probably the best thing to do is upgrade all packages to the latest version of KDE.

You can probably find a list on the Mandrake support site as to what set of packages composes the latest KDE set.

Then upgrade whatever packages are necessary to upgrade manually using the rpm command.

You should read:
man rpm
Pay particular attention to the command parameters used to find out the dependencies before you try to install a package.

I got this problem upgrading the KDE (I think) so I did not tried this. And Since it was the 7-8th time (can't remember exactly) I reinstalled Mdk 9 or 9.1 I decided it was enough... But NO, I'm not discouraged to the point of going back on win so I installed RH9.0. It took me most of the day (yesterday) to build it back and to have my DNS work but I feel satisfied. And now All my previous problems are solved (gnome not working at all and some other minor things). Anyways thanks for trying to help me on that one. Anyways I'll surely have other questions soon since RH is a bit different than Mdk.
