kde4.2 and slackware 12.2


Hi
today i had installed kde4.2 in my slack box.
My slack with dri on and glxgears working great, but when a try to activate the effects in kde tells me this

Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Settings will be reverted to their previous values.

Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advanced options, especially changing the compositing type.

tha line composite in my xorg.conf exist

why?


thanx a lot

Sorry for the off topic response

BUT
a useful example of a command is so much better than reading the man page for fgrep all day

whenever an 'expert' tells a poster to run a certain command I always go to a terminal and run that command on my system. I helps me to understand the command so much better than reading the man page

thanks
john

HI! I have just installed Slackware 12.2 today selecting the ALL in the package list. Although I'm ok with KDE 3.5, I want to try the new 4.2 version of KDE. Will you please give me the steps or links on how to successfully install KDE 4.2 and completely uninstalling 3.5 so that the old packages of 3.5 (the entire KDE 3.5) will be completely replaced by 4.2

Thanks and regards,

The 4.2 version of KDE is not available for Slackware 12.2 - it is for Slackware current which is different. You need to build 4.2 from source on Slackware 12.2 (a big job) or upgrade to Slackware current - instructions should be on this forum somewhere.

You may get current's 4.2 working but it's not recomended to mix versions.
