KDE Disappointed with KDE 4's performance and other shortcomings, Timothy Pearson continued KDE 3.5 development under the name Trinity. Today the first third major update of the Trinity Desktop Environment is released, providing an alternative upgrade path for KDE users who do not feel comfortable with KDE 4.

The more you try to help, the more you can't... Do you actually think approaching someone and directing me to a mailing list and after that, sending me right to a PPA for the fainted heart with 10 warnings that will break your system, apart from the fact that it will be a "beta" of the driver mentioned and downloadable from the mailing list, will help at all?

Come on, I thought you were better at this. Can't fglrx do this crap? I have tested KDE with fglrx and it is just not much better...lag modes are on. Unless you are saying you know a specific configuration in Catalyst Control Center that does the trick.

I am mad now... Martin Gräßlin wants just to satisfy Thom's needs, and the other won't reply if it worked or not.

Sorry, this is a whole lotta bullsh1t...

lemour2, you can apply for a job in

So long KDE... (well, I am not going to mean that just now, but real soon).

You still apparently haven't got it. These issues are not issue with KDE, they are issues with the underlying graphics stack.

I can't fix your system's underlying graphics stack via posts on a message board. Sorry, but it just isn't possible.

All I can do is direct you to the places where the latest software is to be found. It is possible that issues have been fixed with the latest software, but it is also possible that there are regressions. I can't help this, that is the way it is.

No, fglrx (and the nvidia binary blob) are no better. Often they are worse! Furthermore, the vendors don't have much interest in fixing them, and there is no way for the FOSS community to fix them.

What else can I say? On my systems, with ATI/AMD graphics, I do not see the issues you report. KDE4 runs perfectly well, and it is faster and more stable on my systems than GNOME, XFCE or even Windows 7.
