Is there anyway to run KDE without Plasma?
At install I opted out of the kdebase-workspace package, but then didn't have the xwmconfig option to run KDE...
So I installed the kdebase-workspace package, and now I use a workaround...
# find / -depth | grep plasma-desktop.desktop
# vi /usr/share/autostart/plasma-desktop.desktop
Name=Plasma Desktop Workspace
Duplicating, then commenting out the original, and on the uncommented line: removing everything after 'Exec='. Taking the 'plasma.desktop' out. ...Deleting the entire file will only get it rewritten again by the system...
Now it loads into beautiful void.
I still have my GUI, complete with any kApps you might want: konsole, konqueror, and even krunner; but no panels or Desktop Activities.
What I wonder now is...
Is this the way to do it? Is it still loading plasma only no longer implementing it? Am I losing precious RAM'CPU usage with plasma getting loaded without being used?
