Thread: KDE 3.x and KDE 4.0 at the same installation?

  1. #1

    Default KDE 3.x and KDE 4.0 at the same installation?

    Hi,
    I have OpenSuse 11.0 with KDE 4.0. Is it possible to start the system with KDE 4.0 or KDE 3.x withount reinstalling the system?
    I would like to choose the desktop to boot.
    Thanks

    Yes, make sure that KDE 4.x and KDE 3.x are both installed, then on the login screen click the "session" button and select the desktop environment you want from the list. The programs, libraries, and settings from KDE 3 and KDE 4 are all stored separately from each other so there shouldn't be any conflicts. You can still run KDE 3 programs in KDE 4 and vice versus.

    How, exactly does one do this?

    I have KDE 3.5 AND KDE 4 installed, and when I boot there is a selection
    button shown at the top of the screen, but there is no way to actually make
    a selection. Is there some secret keystroke to get there?
