The day when KDE 3 will no longer be viable is getting closer every
day. Please tell me what problems you are having with KDE 4 so that we
can get them fixed. KDE 3 is great because it is mature, configurable,
and feature-laden without being bloated. I do not want to see that go
to waste! It is the KDE 3 holdouts who have the attention to detail to
distinguish the "little things" that make KDE 3 so great that are
currently lacking in KDE 4.
Note that KDE 4.3 really solves most of the issues for me and most
other people that I deal with. In fact, the features is adds over KDE
3 were enough to get me to switch. So please try KDE 4.3 and
_let_me_know_ what does not work for you so that we can file bugs. I
want to know about missing features, unintuitiveness, bugs,
regressions, anything. You _will_ need to relearn some minor things as
KDE 4 is a rewrite of KDE, not a Qt4 port of KDE 3, however let's get
the major issues fixed.
Thanks. KDE really needs the picky, stubborn KDE 3 users to push the
devs (who might not have the same attention to detail as us) in the
right direction. I'm here to bridge the gap between us (the users) and
Thanks for making KDE3 available for Kubuntu users. I have been running an
LTSP network with KDE3 for several happy users. Anyway as I was restricted to
running Hardy I have taken the plunge and now have Jaunty with KDE3 and KDE
installed. (I have decided 4.3 is OK for me)
So I have the LTSP terminals working OK. But when I boot them into KDE3 Plasma
starts too, as well as a number of duplicated KDE 4 services (or because of
to /opt/kde3/bin/startkde but that makes no difference.
KDE4 performance is poor on LTSP so I can't migrate the users. I call kill off
the KDE4 processes and will train users to do this.
Any ideas how I can stop KDE4 processes starting? Where are they being started

Has anyone been successful integrating openoffice 3.1 with kde?
I recently installl openoffice 3.1 from the following ppa:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
It installs without error but is missing the kde integration. Besides
looking terrible it does not support the Konqueror integration when using
the open/save dialogs

I'm trying to help my Dad with a problem. He's using KDE 3.5.x and
his USB printer stopped working. He can see the printer with "lsusb"
so it would appear that USB works, but when he tries to add the
printer with the KDE Add Printer Wizard, the choice "Local printer
(parallel, serial, USB)" is deactivated. He can't press the radio
button to enable it. The other radio buttons are all active except
for "Serial Fax/Modem printer".
What can deactivate that button. It happens on both his and my Mom's
systems, but they are running the same software, so that doesn't
narrow things down, much.
My machine is running the same software, too, and it is enabled for
me. I can't figure out what he could be missing to turn off local
His OS is Ubuntu Jaunty with the semi-official KDE 3.5 installed.
