Folks,

Do not bother in building yourselves, we will be providing unsupported snapshots packages in the next few days.

you made my week!

I tried installing my debs on my wife's computer but they had many video problems. I'm pretty sure that was my fault for using the nvidia installer and letting it overwrite the libgl stuff. (My wife has an ATI card.)

cassianoleal - ana is one of the kde debian maintainers.

Ana - do we monitor your blog or will it be posted on the Debian KDE 4 page?

I think he was replying to my question. ;)

Using kde4libs instead of kdelibs5 didn't do the trick either. But since Ana made the happy announcement I think I'm going to wait for the packages.

On the other hand it might be good to now how to make svn packages in the future (when work on 4.3 is under way), so I might try to build it myself anyway.

Ana,

Thanks for that! I left a comment in your blog as well.

To everyone else who helped: thanks for that too. I was actually getting things right this time. It will become an abandoned project now, though, thanks to the efforts of Ana and the other Debian KDE packagers involved in this.

Cheers!

Only pump was I had to force remove libplasma2.

I think I could have skipped that if I had removed the -dev packages before upgrading.

Same here and I didn't have any -dev packages for kde4 installed, is that packages no longer needed.

Two lame questions, if I solve this KDE 4 will be perfect for me.

1. and the most important one, how do you make folder view to preserve it's size when you reboot? It's very annoying that everytime it starts it reverts to a small size window and all the icons that I placed in my favorite place although they retain their position they get "rearranged" when I resize the plasmoid.

2. on one of the machine kicker plasmoid (what's the official name?) is transparent (which is what I want) but on another machine is bluish and not transparent, although I have transparence enabled, how can you change the look/color of the kicker?

BTW, it looks like themes don't work, am I right or it's only my config?

The plasma panel is based on the theme

You might make sure that the machine has composite enabled and desktop effects on.

Your first issue I can't duplicate.

Is your folderview fullscreen?

In Appearance change the desktop mode from Desktop to folder view.

It's strange, both desktops have the same theme and composite and desktop effects on. EDIT: on the desktop where I was having transparent kicker I backed up .kde4 and let KDE4 create it's own configurations and I got the same kicker as on the other desktop, now the trick is to figure out how I got it transparent in the first place.

As for the second one, I don't see any option to change from Desktop to folder view.... EDIT: OK, got it... but I was trying to keep folder view half of the screen but the plasmoid doesn't remember it's size at reboot, but this should work fine for my needs.
