I browsed the KDE forum and there does not seem to have a general setting for showing tooltips.

In this KDE forum thread, it's discussed how to disable tooltips for some applications:

Quote:
Unfortunately they are under the control of the application that shows them. For Konqueror/Dolphin's tooltips, open Dolphin > Settings > Configure Dolphin > General. Uncheck "Show tooltips"
Quote:
In taskbar can be disabled by right clicking taskbar > settings > show tooltips
There is a KDE bug report opened regarding tooltips in the panel or the desktop: bug 178578

I think what you are looking for is System Settings -> Desktop -> Desktop Effects -> All Effects -> {Thumbnail Aside/Taskbar Thumbnails}

To answer the original question (sort of)...

For fresh install
Start with the Slackware-13 set
replace kde folder with the one from 12.2

In the "L" folder :
replace qca with qca from 12.2
replace qt-r1008952 with qt-3.3.8b from 12.2
add qca-tls from 12.2
add arts from 12.2
add dbus-qt3 from 12.2

Setup must be run with the new installer, I used the usb boot.

I agree that kde4 is a steaming pile,
all eye candy with no functionality.
While kde3 was near perfection.

I just did it. It works.

Screenshot here. I've only done it in Virtualbox, but if it works there, I'm sure it'll work on a real machine.

This makes me very happy... I was expecting a lot more trouble than this!

I tried Slack 13 Saturday night. I love most of the new stuff, but I can't stand KDE 4. I was thinking that I might have to build my own version of KDE 3, but now I don't have to.

Do know that there might be problems with some 3.5.10 apps using Python. I've read about some patches but never pursued the topic further.

Do know that Ark does not recognize the new xz compression format for packages. Then again, neither does the KDE 4 version of Ark.

Otherwise 3.5.10 should function well in 13.0.

Should be able to drop in the older python package from 12.2 maybe it can co-exist?

That's what I did... so far no problems in my virtualized testing anyway.

Works great here.
Lost Ctrl + Alt + Backspace but I'll figure that out later.

Keybindings should be easy enough to fix, I would think.

The released Kde 3.5.10 binaries from Pat V. are missing the QT Dbus Bindings.

This is still the premier forum to follow for installing Kde 3.5.10 on Slackware 13.
