kde-4 issue on 8.04 LTS?
 
Greetings all;

I have a sacrificial old box I call goat cuz its being sacrificed on the alter
of knowledge.

Fresh install of ubuntu-8.04 LTS and then updated, I found the meta file for
kde-4 and installed 250+ packages of kde with it. Twice now, once with the
default installer and once with synaptic, they don't seem to be aware of each
others databases. That brings up the requestor (both times) that confirms my
choice of kdm-kde4 as the window manager.

On reboot, the kubuntu splash comes up, but at login it looks as if it is
using the gnome login. Once the user and pw have been entered, the kubunutu
splash comes back until it actually does the startx, at which time it is back
to gnome for the desktop, but with a large number of kde apps present in the
menu's.

What does it take to make it kde4 all the way?

In your Gnome login screen just select "change sessions" and pick KDE4. Then
sign in! It will ask you if you want to make it the default but I wouldn't
do that till you are comfortable with KDE4. Just pick "for this session
only". You also could have installed the regular KDE meta package and you
would have a triple boot machine! Even a quad if you also left that lame
windoze on your machine!

On the login screen there is an option at the bottom that when clicked
on will allow you to login into KDE4, ...or not at you wish.

Sorry, 'tisn't there. But the login screen now has a K logo too. Ahh, hidden
in a sub-menu of the menu buttons pull down, duh. And it works, but how do I
make it the default?

And, how can I shrink the pagers window frames? They are about the size of a
postage stamp each, 10x the real estate the gnome frames use, and use most of
the bar when I get enough to work with setup. Here on this screen with
kde-3.5.10, the whole pager is about 1.2 cm tall and <4 cm long, in two rows
of 4, leaving lots of bar to drop other stuff on. That screen is not of
course near the resolution of this one, it's an old compaq 15", 800x600 maybe
& getting long in the tooth fuzzy, lcd 1680x1050 here.

Thanks Tom.

I believe the default becomes "the session you used last".

Thanks, we'll find out later as I dropped the power switch on it shortly after
posting that last night.

Go to "KMenu" -> "Favorites" -> "System Settings" -> "Advanced" tab ->
"Session Manager" -> "Window Manager" and make sure what you have for
default.
