KDE switching from 4 back to 3.5.9


Hi Guys,

I just installed Fedora 9, and set up the KDE desktop - it uses KDE 4. While KDE 4 is not bad, a lot of the functionality to which I became accustomed, is missing. I would like to switch back to KDE 3.5.9. Is that possible on Fedora 9, and if so, how would I do that?

Thank you in advance for any help.

-Greg.

Look around in the main menu. I believe there is a switch to select the older KDE display mode. I have it in OpenSuse 10.3. You may also have it in Fedora.

Thank you, I looked around and found a desktop switching applet, however, it only has KDE as an option, not the version of it.

Any other way to do it? Maybe some command line utility, or editing some config file?
