    Default KDE 3.5 -> 4.2

    I run openSUSE 11.0 with KDE 3.5.9.
    I would like to install KDE 4.2 and have the choice of choosing 3.5 or 4.2 when I start a session.
    I have added the following repos:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.0
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE_42

    How do I install the 4.2 now?
    Thank you for your help.

    Add:-

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    to your repo list.

    Then open yast software and select patterns and click on kde 4.

    When you log out on the bottom of the screen left side there is a mini menu which will include kde 4.2

    Thank you for your kindness. I did not think it was so easy.

    Hmm - I'm pretty sure the factory repos will soon be given over to 4.3. I think the repos you had before were correct if you want 4.2, you just needed to go into YaST patterns and select 'KDE base' and 'KDE desktop' to install them. You can probably get back onto that repo by deleting the factory repo from your sources list, reinstating the ones you had (and giving them the same or lower priority numbers than your other repos), then going back into YaST, selecting all of the installed packages in those two patterns, and choosing 'update all unconditionally'.

    Of course, if you're happy to have 4.3 soon, just stay where you are. And I might be talking rubbish, so maybe wait and see if someone chimes in and agrees with me.

    In fact, I did not install KDE 4.2 from the factory repos, but from the other two I mentioned before. I have installed "KDE base" and "KDE desktop".The result is very confusing:
    a session in 4.2 is a mixture of 3.5 and 4.2,
    dolphin and knetworkmanager do not function,
    gapcmon has disappeared (UPS).
    The "About box" in Konqueror shows KDE 3.5.9!
    The icons are very big and I cannot change their size!
    It seems to me that someone has already experienced this kind of inconvenience, but I do not remember in what forum.
    Perhaps, do I have to get rid of KDE 3.5?

    If i'm not wrong you need to set it up at login manager what kind of session You want. Choosing KDE 4.2 should do the trick
    And try to check it at sysconfig what login manager there is.

    Of course, I have opened a session in the login manager by selecting KDE 4. And the desktop icons are those of KDE3!

    Then i would backup my whole home directory then remove every folder so that KDE 4.2 will recreate it as it should be (then you can always recover things from the backup), update unconditionally (to be on the safe side but update if there are any newer pacakges should suffice) and get rid of KDE 3

    4.2 is very usable now
