    So wait 3-5 Hours and your KDE will be done.

    While I already have mine done 2 and 1/2 hours ago. LOL

    Sorry bud, just telling it like it is.

    Peace!

    Im not sure I like it better than 3.1. The desktop font shading is hideous!!

    Anyways, I managed to turn that off after going through most of the options. What I didnt find however was a way of removing the "most used programs" etc lables from the K-menu. Can this be done with a setting or have this been set by the folks who compiled the package?

    I think its allitle smoother I was using it on my last install of Suse 9.

    Did you try starting K-menu from run command or a console.

    Or for that matter doing a search from you console and make sure its still there , then if it is just make a link to it on your desktop or config it into your programs list.

    Your menu editor may differ from mine but there is nothing related to this issue in it.

    They have fixed the bug where the
    "connection broken" dialog popped
    when accessing this site.

    True but that would only be if you dont have it installed.

    My point is you can just install the program "k-menu" and your all set.

    Dont take my word for it, just try it.

    Later.

    Where do you find this app? The only one I have that is related to the k-menu is "kmenuedit" and that comes with the kdebase package.

    KDE 3.2 seems much more responsive on my system. Of course, that could partly be due to upgrading to 2.6.x since the last time I tried KDE 3.1.x!

    Noticeably smoother and more responsive on my system, too.

    Had some sound-related issues after the emerge, but got those figured out, and all appears good.

    Time to go tweaking...

    First of all any prog that starts with K usually is a KDE app. LOL

    Anyways yes they are the same and or you can do a search on google and get one in an RPM form.

    Good Luck!

    As far as the KDE 3.2 goes I am installing LM 10 Beta 2 tonight guys so I will let you know what I think of it. Cant wait to check it out.

    Later!

    His GUI will be about twice as fast as yours.

    No see your telling it like you think it is.

    Thats the problem , please show me one INDEPENDENT review showing me proof of this.

    See thats the problem with Gentoo , ITS ALL HYPE.

    I have read all they HYPE on GENTOO's homepage showing THEIR benchmarks how THEIR Distro is faster than others. BS

    Please if you really look at their benchmarks you are talking what " A HALF A SECOND" LOL

    Next thing you know you will tell me you notice that half of a SECOND on Gentoo over Mandrake.

    Get real!!!!

    Bottomline: Gentoo is all HYPE, Gentoos -XFS-SOURCE kernel is the SAME SGI KERNEL used in MANDRAKE, REDHAT, FEDORA, and a few more I am sure. And since XFS is the fastest linux filesystem to date , how does this make it a GENTOO exclusive.

    Look I am sorry to rant and rave. But unlike some people on here, I tell it like it is.

    If you Gentoo Hypers want to believe that you have the fastest Distro out there and it makes you love your LINUX system more, than I personally have NO PROBLEM with that. But please dont tell me what ITS SO MUCH FASTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE OUT THERE. Because I know better. I dont just read alot, I do alot, I have used more Distros than the average linux user, it doesnt make me any smarter than anyone else, but at least I know which ones are faster, slower and which ones are horrible.

    To be perfectly honest, THEY ALL ARE FAST, depending on how you set them up.

    Thats just the way it is!

    Peace.

    I am definitely liking 3.2. It may just take the place of my beloved XFCE4--at least for now!
