KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

Why can't KDE users have a browser that uses: a Qt front-end GUI, XULrunner for programmability and extensibility, and webkit and squirrelfox (i.e. Google Chrome) as the backend?


You can achieve some of that ghetto-style with kgtk, an LD_PRELOAD hack that replaces the GTK filepicker (the most aggravating part of GTK) with the default KDE one. Been using it for years, though often it involves editing the launcher script for Firefox, which likes to unset LD_PRELOAD. It's just a one-line comment deal.
