If you want to try the KDE4 desktop, you can:

a) Change to it with the window manager (Desktop->desktop settings->WM switcher)

b) Just run it on top of you current window manager by typing "startkde" into a console (Probably good if you just want to have a quick peek at what it's like)

c) Log in through kdm. This is done by exiting X and then typing in "kdm" into the prompt. This will allow KDE to run the way it was designed to, but it requires you to add a non root user. I had trouble with this because I'm not familiar with non root user procedures (having been a puppian all my Linux life) .



Ok , none of this seems to work... Sad

Hi Jason,

Have you checked to see if the SFS you downloaded has the correct MD5sum? It should be: de23f44e93f734fa84eb2a98745c6cac

Are you running a frugal or full installation and are you running Lucid 528?

What is the message that displays after typing "startkde" into a console?

Thanks for coming back with the requested info.

Hmmm ok, full installation, that tends to complicate things. How did you install the the SFS?

Did you use quickpet on the desktop, then the "SFS" menu at the top and then "Sfs_grabber" to install the pet or another method?

Ah yes, well that will be it. SFSs on full installations are a bit more complicated, but certainly doable.

Try following these steps:

1. Go to "quickpet" on the desktop.

2. Then to the "SFS" menu at the top and click "Sfs_grabber".

3. Drag the KDE4.sfs to the entry box, and it should install.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks oui, appreciate the positive feedback. Smile Hope you get an answer for your questions on the KDE forum. I've always intended to try and sort out the "Lost and Found" issue, but have never had the time to really work on it. Confused
