    Default 11.2+KDE4.3+E17

    Hi,

    Is it safe to have this combination: 11.2+KDE4.3+E17

    OpenSUSE11.2 Milestone 4 or 5
    KDE4.3 (to be released in next few days)
    Enlightenment E17 (Enlightenment for openSUSE - openSUSE).

    Also, is it possible to configure KDE4.3 for one user and E17 for the second user?

    Regards
    Mukul

    For testing development OS's and software, you do what you like really. Safe doesn't really come in to it.

    But if you are considering this as a stable work machine. Think again.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I think I can compromise to: 11.1+KDE4.3+E17
    I think that's almost stable. I really want to have a go to E17. It looks mind blowing.

    How about my second question:
    Is it possible to configure KDE4.3 for one user and E17 for the second user?

    If both kde4 and E17 are installed you just login to the DE of choice. So the answer is Yes.
    You should disable auto login during install, see this point: Installation/11.1 DVD Install - openSUSE

    You can actually do this later if you miss it.

    Then you have to login manually when you boot. This is the best way to run anyway. In the lower left of the login screen you can select the DE of choice (from those you have installed anyway).

    If you say create a user JOE and log him in as kde4, he will always do that unless you change it.
    The a user BLOGS and log him in as E17....
    you get me?

    Hi,

    Appreciate your quick reply and got your point. I'll keep in mind while installing. I'll get back if I am unable to setup later.
    Also, I was wondering since I am not interested in Gnome DE, so shall i go with "KDE Four Live CD" or the standard OpenSUSE DVD ?? I dont want the Gnome taking unnecessary space on my HDD.

    Regards

    I've got a low bandwidth connection (192Kbps) so I am going ahead with the Live KDE CD. I hope there's not much difference.
    Any suggestions after the installation from KDE Foue Live CD??

    I wanted to do the same. Unfortunately, there's no torrent link to download that iso

    OK.
    So run updates to fix some issues with the original release then follow this guide
    KDE4.2.* (How To Add) Guide. - openSUSE Forums

    Take note of the need to change the repo priorities!!
