    Question KDE4.3 Yast Packages

    This is related to 11.1 but the Factory KDE4 packages, which is why I put it in here:

    Updates provide the new look Yast


    Is anyone else needing Double click?
    I can probably change it, haven't looked in to it yet.

    Yes. It's a darned nuisance. Now that I've got used to double-clicking in
    11.2, when I go back to 11.1 I find I'm still doing it when I only need
    single-click.

    What are they thinking of. I hate double click. And I'm KDE! Small rant!
    Goes contrary to all the rest of the desktop settings which are 1 click in kde.

    I dislike it as well.

    The first thing my wife (a BIG winXP fan) does when using her openSUSE desktop (after I update it) is to go in and change the settings to require a double click. Which drives me bananas when I need to do some maintenance on her openSUSE.

    When playing on milestone-x for 11.2 (with KDE-4.3 RC versions) on my sandbox PC, I found the updated YaST double click requirement extremly annoying. I also wonder what they are doing? What were they thinking? Was this to make it more friendly for Windoze fans?

    I know it drives me up the wall.

    This is what @mvidner (dev?) said about it, when a few of us also had small rants over in chit-chat a couple of weeks ago, :

    No. The old Qt control center was the last thing in the distro using Qt 3, so it had to go. Once we were rewriting it, we decided to make it similar to the Gtk variant.
    The double-click issue was highlighted then, but that response side-stepped it. Yast (developers) must prefer Gnome over KDE - for stability perhaps. Else what other KDE user benefit would there be(?).
