You will need to run Slackware-current dated Saturday July 31, 2010 or newer. My packages for KDE 4.5.0 are not guaranteed to work on Slackware 13.1, so if you want KDE 4.5.0 you are encouraged to upgrade to Slackware-current!

I tried to upgrade. Everything seemed to go well. I installed the dep and then the alien packages without issue. when KDE came up, there was a duplicate panel at the top of the screen and the performance was terrible. Anything that I tried to activate would not respond but would show if I switched to different desktop. It was all very strange. I am not used to having issues with Slackware packages but I think this must have been something I did wrong.
I am running -current with KDE 4.4.5 without issue now.

@ryerke:
In that case, try move or rename your .kde directory into other name and give it a try

Thanks...that was fast! I did that and added a new user just to be sure. Same effect both ways. I thought that I may have needed to merge the .new files or something but nobody has mentioned that. There is a possibility that one or more packages did not download properly. In fact...now that I think about it, I use Dansguardian and that has caused problems in the past.

i don't use Dansguardian, so i can't be sure about that

about the .new files, you can list all .new files using this

Code:
find /etc -name "*.new"

I've done it.
the upgrade from KDE 4.4.5 to KDE 4.5.0
And you know what ?

Every things went tip top.

I didn't removed the .kde directory in my home directory.
I suppose upgrading from 4.4.5, we don't need.

About Dolphin, it's true that I already had some bugs with it,
Sometimes it stops responding and I have to use the system monitor to stop it.
Quote:
4.5.0 is stable enough, *except* for Dolphin, which i think 4.4.5 is more stable
But if I have this problem very often with 4.5.0 then
I'll use Konqueror and I love it.

junk activities on startup

my upgrade went smoothly, except that there are a lot of junk activities created at startup. i've removed them manually but they re-appear after logging in again.

i suspect this could be because of using the old .kde folder. i wouldnt want to create a new one as i have saved a lot of settings e.g shortcuts, widgets , kmail etc

So, I guess that his post need to be updated, if this is not true. The post says that the only difference are the updated packages in deps, nothing else.

Don't forget, if you're using Eric's KDE packages, and if you use slackpkg to update, to put those packages in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist. Otherwise you'll find yourself back with the old stuff.
This is the relevant part of my blacklist (running Eric's 4.4.5 on 13.1):
Code:
#
# KDE 4.4.5
#
kdeaccessibility
kdeadmin
kdeartwork

kdebase-runtime
kdebase-workspace
kdebindings
kdeedu
kdegames
kdegraphics
kdelibs
kdemultimedia
kdenetwork
kdepim
kdepim-runtime
kdepimlibs
kdeplasma-addons
kdesdk
kdetoys
kdeutils
kdewebdev
koffice
oxygen-icons
polkit-kde

I've been using these packages on 13.1 for several days now and have found that you also need to upgrade attica to the version in -current to get khotkeys server to run.

*Edit: I see BrianL has it in his blacklist.

That might be true, but still i think the best requirements is to use -Current rather than 13.1

Talking System Setting doesn't answer after after selecting Contry & Languages

I have upgrade from KDE 4.4.5 to 4.5.0.
I had installed previously the KDEi package.
Now that I'm on KDE 4.5.0, and I click on country and languages, the System setting window just freeze.
It does appear to me that I've upgraded the languages in KDE 4.
5.0 but the french interface is still working in KDE menus and I want to revert it back to english.

Hi :-)

I use slackcurrent. I download the packages and then I install using :

Quote:
upgradepkg --install-new
to slackcurrent (I use dial-up)

I download the packages to kde45, along with the dependencies, and installed
packages using:

Quote:
upgradepkg --install-new
I did in my home directory

Quote:
mv .config/ .config_bk/
mv .dbus/ .dbus_bk/
mv .fontconfig/ .fontconfig_bk/
mv .hplip/ .hplip_bk/
mv .kde/ ./kde_bk/
mv .local/ .local_bk/
mv .thumbnails/ .thumbnails_bk/
mv .directory .directory_bk
mv .esd_auth .esd_auth_bk
mv .fonts.conf .fonts.conf_bk
mv .screenrc .screenrc_bk
mv .Xauthority .Xauthority_bk
mv .xsession .xsession_bk
Configured my X kde, but when resized my panel, the X lock and not can unlock ...(even restarting the X)

At the moment I'm using current from another partition, kde445

Thanks

ps: The link
is down ............
