    Default How t remove KDE4.0.4

    I was trying to install KDE4.1 and I click on the links that reinstalled KDE 4.0.4
    How do I remove 4.0.4?


    davek@linux-wadt:~> df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sdb1 15828556 8009020 7015488 54% /
    udev 647140 116 647024 1% /dev
    /dev/sdb2 23742584 5909200 16627308 27% /home
    davek@linux-wadt:~>

    How can I get rid of half the / directory? It shouldn't be at 54%.

    I'm using KDE 3.5.9 and seems like the only KDE that works well at this point. How do I install 4.1 ??

    You don't want to REMOVE 4.0.4, rather you want to upgrade
    it to 4.1.

    So, just follow the advice in your other thread...add the factory
    repositories as outlined there, and upgrade.

    I find it cleaner to upgrade from the command line, via:

    'zypper ref && zypper dup'

    (which in layman's terms is 'refresh' and 'dist-upgrade'...
    see 'man zypper' for details)

    You'll find that they update things at least twice a week, so when
    the 'refresh' shows a change in factory repo(s), that's an indication
    of new stuff. I check it daily.

    Ok, I just ran $ zypper ref && zypper dup

    I think I installed everything for opensuse 11 for 4.1. Now how do I upgrade it?

    is there a command?

    You now have the most recent. Just repeat that command
    each day, and if there's something newer, it will upgrade it.


    [If you really wanted to remove it all, use Yast2, and change
    the filter from 'search' to 'patterns', and
    click on the two boxes labeled 'kde4 base system'
    and 'kde4 desktop environment'.]

    Yeah, I forgot to mention (since I didn't select it during installation).

    There's a feature called 'auto-login', which you chose during installation.

    To disable it, go into Yast->security and Users->User and Group mgmt->
    in the users-tab, click on 'expert options' and uncheck 'auto-login'. Then, logout.

    Then, you'll get a login-screen, and there's a 'sessions' item, where
    you can choose among session-types.

    OK, now i logged in again and I'm now in KDE4 but when I went to Dolphin I still says KDE4.0.4 Where's 4.1?

    And how do you resize the big icons and make them smaller?
    It's not under view like it was in KDE3

    Now when I reboot it doesn't let me log in and whtn it does come up in KDE4 it now opens many windows and I can't use anything. I brings up the setting windows with screens and two tool bars, its a total disaster now!!

    I can't do anything at this point. KDE4 is unusable at this point. I may have to use the live cd and reinstall opensuse alltogether.

    Help!!!

    i somehow was able to get back into kde3 and now I would like to remove kde4 completely.

    maybe in the coming months they well fix this mess called kde4 and it will be usable.
