KDE 3.5 on Slackware64-13.0


While I appreciate the great work that's been done on KDE4, it's just too buggy for me still. I want my old KDE3 back... But I'd still like to be able to mess around with KDE4 and learn a bit about it.

Is there any way to install KDE3 alongside 4? Or do you pretty much have to overwrite everything?

Either way I need to get KDE3 installed on my 13.0 64bit... I can live with not being able to keep kde4 if need be. But how should I even go about getting KDE3 on here?

Thanks for any tips and advice!

There have been other threads about this in the past few days, search for Melkior's posts, he has posted several times about it and seems to have a way to get back to kde3.

Check this link:
http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4.x

This article describes how to build KDE 4 from source to run in tandem with KDE 3 on a system which is native version 3. You could likely use the same basic technique to build KDE 3 to run alongside 4 on Slackware 13.

If you get a bit of time, try installing KDE 4.3 (You'll have to download some other packages that it depends on though) that is a huge improvement over KDE 4.2.

Please provide some instructions for building 4.3.x. using the Slackware build scripts. Thanks!

Here are some packages with source/slackbuilds included.

Edit: These aren't my packages but I have tried them.
