Hi! That is not a KDE issue. Did you install LXDE? That is LXTask.
Indeed, I have LXDE installed! What an "aha-experience"! Though I asked mostly for fun, it's so good to know what the h*ll happened. Thanks a bunch, ~sHyLoCk~!
I have done some hopping between other DE's to see if there is a smoother alternative to KDE 4 until;
A) I get composition more swift,
B) I get a more powerful box,
C) I get used to it,
D) All above.
LXDE is really nice and fast, just wish the trashcan on the desktop was working.
For the moment I use GSB/Compiz, but my goal is to switch back to KDE.
