I used slackpkg to upgrade -current to KDE 4.3.2; everything works perfectly. How did you upgrade your system?

I recommend that you use slackpkg to upgrade your system.

# slackpkg update

# slackpkg install-new

# slackpkg upgrade-all

Same here, I'd recommend doing it that way.

When slackpkg downloads the packages where does it put them. I try to make sure I keep anything I download so if I ever need to reinstall I have it. Thats why I've always manually downloaded everything

Slackpkg is fine, but there's nothing wrong with downloading the packages (or writing a script to do it for you) and installing things manually.

But you have to make sure you get the other packages from -current that have been updated, not just the KDE packages. That's why Slackpkg is helpful. It grabs everything that's been updated.

Just upgraded to 4.3.2. Most things are working but plasma keeps crashing when I try to customize the panel. Anyone know how to remove notification icon from the system tray. I would like it to pop-up when there is an actual notification (like 4.2). Also trying to remove the auto-hide option from the systray with no luck. Is this a non-removable feature?

Great work

Hi!

First of all I wanted to thank the devs for this great upgrade. I've been waiting for this so long, and I was not disappointed.

Only one tiny bit of a problem for me is that the Device Notifier is not working anymore. It sits there on the panel, and when I plug in a new device it just stays quiet. Also in krusader the Media List is empty, where the mounted partitions and the attached devices used to be hanging.

I'm in the appropriate groups - I think -, and done a hal/dbus restart too.

This is on a Slackware-current.

$ groups
users lp floppy audio video cdrom plugdev power netdev scanner

Anyone got an idea what could be wrong here?

Thanks!

Daniel

Yup confirmed, k3b is working now without kde3-compat packages.

@danielldaniell

Device notifier works here. Try removing it from panel and re-adding it.

Not only the widget on the panel is not working but whole media hotplug infrastructure in KDE. There are no devices in Dolphin, Konqueror, Krusader etc...
