    Default Where did the KDE 3.5.9 kicker volume applet go?

    I just got my opensuse 11 DVD today and installed KDE 3.5.9. The only thing I can't figure out yet is where the kmix volume applet is? It was in the kicker applets in 10.3. I can't find it now. Where did it go?

    Nevermind, I figured it out. It seems that all of the KDE apps that were updated for KDE4 lost the old KDE3 equivalents. If I want to have KDE 3.5.9, I have to use kmix, akregator, and a lot of other apps from KDE4. This is really frustrating. I thought I could use 3.5.9, and not have to bother with 4.0.

    $ which kmix
    /opt/kde3/bin/kmix
    $ rpm -qf /opt/kde3/bin/kmix
    kdemultimedia3-mixer-3.5.9-43.1

    ...I didn't anything special. Just selected KDE 3.5.9 when the DVD installer asked.

    That is weird. All I could find in the repos was kde4-kmix. The kmix applet isn't in kicker. I can't find a way to get it there. It has always just been in kicker at startup in previous versions. I can access kmix in the menu and sound works fine. The DVD hung twice while it was initiating the package manager. Maybe the disk is foobar. I bought it from On-Disk. I'll check it out.

    It was just me. The DVD was fine. I tried customizing the software selection during install and wound up removing some stuff I didn't mean to. I am used to Debian KDE packages being separate, like akregator. You can install it as one package. If I uninstalled kdepim in opensuse to get rid of kmail, then akregator goes with it because it is in the kdepim package.
