Thread: Swapped to KDE and now things are broken

    Default Swapped to KDE and now things are broken

    I was running Gnome, but was not happy with the interface (again) and installed/swapped over to KDE. I now have the following issues with my system:

    1) YAST/Software Installer won't work. I put in my password and then nothing shows up. I can run it from command line, but this is a pain when I try to install rpms from the web. It will no longer install things from rpm through YAST.

    2) All sound quit in my web browsers. I get the following information from crash handler:
    System configuration startup check disabled.

    Default Re: Swapped to KDE and now things are broken

    openSUSE 11.0

    KDE 4 as well as KDE 3.5.9 (release 49.1) both act the same.

    I installed from a DVD.

    Gnome works with no problems but sound in websites. I will swap back out drives and see if your suggestion works and then update the post.

    Thank you for your help.
