Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

if i try to move it fast, my screen would look like a warp portal. ive installed linux a few times but this is the first time i had this problem. i dont know if i just misconfigured something in kde as i was trying to "beautify" it. anyone know what kde option might trigger this behavior?
i just installed another distro using kde. it displays the same problem. i wonder if my computer's just too slow to accomodate kde. i have athlon xp 2000+. nvidia geforce mx400 64 mb, and 256 mb of ram. is it just too old?
Perhaps you should read How To Ask Questions The Smart Way, because your OP sounds like a script kiddie's monologue. I have absolutely no clue about your system, your configuration, or even what a "warp portal" might be. If you have the time, this article is, IMO, well worth a read. If you don't have the time, and you still want to get questions answered by the hacker volunteers who man free software projects, then you really should make the time anyway and read this article.
2. if i try to move one around my desktop it creates something like a freezed distorted window trail.
3. i changed window decorations to crystalgl, added domino widget style.
on my second kde linux, crystal was already installed. didnt know if
it had domino. i erased it already cause it was too slow for a fresh
also, i don't use slackware.
your pc specs are enough for linux, and x problems, arnt the end of linux, yes it would be nice to have all the answers as a previous poster pointed out, but i dont think you need to be picked on for the lack of info...
Everybody learns by asking questions, even if they are strange...
ok kde is just a desktop running upon a distro, what some need is what distro...(thats, linux distro(name) and version number)
what kde version(number)
and what you have done to it...
as you have had this running fine before, it sounds like a problem caused by configuration, but we wont rule out other causes...
hopefully someone will give you an answer soon, or i shall have to work it out when i get on next...
Good luck with your problem and not everyone is as rude as previous poster...
wraithe. thanks for the reply. i don't think it was the distro. ive tried it with kubuntu 7.10 and another distro. they were experiencing the same window lag.
unfortunately my pc got broken so i can't know the version now. maybe it's just too old. i hope i get a new pc soon. thanks anyway.
thanks for the reply. ive done a fresh install on my resurrected pc and it displays the same behavior without any modifications done with kde yet. maybe its the distro, but im not planning on changing distros for very long time. im very happy with it. this is just a small problem i could live with. thanks guys.
