So I installed it. Fun.
Anywho, I use Mandrake 9.2. I installed it with the konstruct program so I didn't overwrite the last version. I logged out, and didn't see anything new under the sessions bar (which contains the WM, such as KDE, gnome, blackbox).
So I looked up some stuff and came across this 'switchdesk' thing.
Well, apparantly it is not a Mandrake command.
If it is, someone please send me a link as to how to download it. I
could only find RH RPMs.
So, after a while of 'X && startkde' and 'startkde && X', I cried in the corner for a bit.
I soon edited good ole' ~/.xinitrc to state the following:
so at the command prompt I typed 'startx' and clicked enter
And HEY! whatta know...it worked...kind of. So it booted KDEx.x (what version, I do not know), and it looked similiar, my hotkeys the same, the background the same, taskbar size the same, but my fonts were different.
*note*It didn't really show a splash-screen, it was just a white screen*note*
The 'right-click' and the special 'left-click' menus had smaller fonts.
So I went into the good old "Configure your desktop" program and saw the following:
"KDE version: 3.1.3" and again cried
Then I thought, hey, maybe the fonts just changed for some reason. That wasn't it because I booted up to my other version of KDE and it was the same as before.
So now, my fellow Homo sapiens, I ask, what can I do to get KDE 3.2 to start up? Was the "Configure your desktop" program just looking at the other version? Was I, infact, on KDE3.2? Is there a command to find out what version of KDE I am currently running? Does .999... = 1?
