KDE Since the stream of news is still pretty much dry, I figured I'd throw in something I've been meaning to talk about for a while now, but really didn't dare to: KDE4's performance. Since experiences with KDE4 seem to widely differ between people, it might be a good idea if we, together, can find a common cause among those of us having problems.

Slackware 13

I installed Slackware 13 two days ago, which ships w/ 4.2. I'm not impressed. Many configuration options that existed in 3.5 are hard to find or non-existent. The KDE software, the quality of which I usually praise, is extremely buggy, and in some cases unusable. After a bit of tweaking I have it working _roughly_ like 3.5, but I'm seriously considering downgrading to 3.5.8.

I'd recommend you to update to 4.3 first. Quite a lot of features were added from 4.2 to 4.3.

3.5.8? Ain't the newest KDE3 version 3.5.10? Why downgrade to an even older version, instead of the very latest KDE3? And while IMO KDE4 is still not quite there yet overall, I agree with the above poster: try KDE 4.3. It might suit your needs already. For me, it's pretty usable as it is, though certainly not flawless (openSUSE's implementation). If it's not good enough yet, it looks like KDE4 will definitely reach maturity by 4.4 or 4.5.

You probably want 3.5.10
