Re: Gnome 3

I think that Gnome 3 looks like utter crap. I for one moved to Kde... its pretty damn stable now, and with kde 4.3 on its way soon, theres no way gnome will catch up in terms of beauty, and modern looking d.e. kde is the future in my opinion :) gnome is going downhill if this is the way they are hea...

Not to diss boo, he does good work, but c'mon.... anybody that is serious about kde shoul...

Re: ahem.... mint kde 5? where are you?

tacky? are you kidding? some distro's have a tacky implementation of kde..... (kubuntu especially)
but alot of distro's have done an awesome job with kde.. like linux mint, sabayon, pclinux, ark, mepis, open suse, etc etc.
its not kde... its dodgey work from the distro its on ;)

Linux Mint 5 Kde4???

Is the next version of mint kde gonna be Kde4??? oh god i hope not, lol.
i've tried kubuntu, fedora, and open suse's version of kde4, and its simply just not ready yet.
Is mint implementing kde4 in the next version, or sticking with kde 3.5x for now?
anybody know? :)
cheers

Re: W: GPG error:

oh, i think the problem is that i have to remove the key.
I know how to do it in gnome, but does anybody know how to do it in KDE?
in gnome i know you have to go into software sources and remove the key, but i can't find it in kde
anybody? :)

Re: ubuntu Debian packages???

oh yeah, thats right. for a second i forgot mint uses ubuntu repo's :) I might come back to mint full time from pclinux, they are both imo the best kde distro's available, only downfall for pclinux is that if you want to install an rpm package, you have to wait for them to compile it for pclinux and...

ubuntu Debian packages???

Ok this might be a dumb question, but i want to make sure. I've been using pclinuxos, which is a fork of Mandriva, but your not suppose to install mandriva rpm packages on pclinuxos, it will end up hosing your system...... So, my question is.... Is it 100% safe to install ubuntu debian packages on l...

Re: Experiences with KDE

I too have been very impressed with Linux Mint Kde, i have gone back and forth between gnome and kde for quite a while, but one day decided, nah... Kde is for me. Gnome works well, but it is uglier than windows 95. lol... i'll probly get abused for that :) Anyways.... don't give up Kde just because ...
