    KDE-3.5 will not be offered as part of the official Novell/SuSE-11.2 release.

    I suppose its possible someone in the openSUSE community may package a version of 11.2 with KDE-3.5 , although I have not read anywhere that such a packaging will take place.

    Thanks oldcpu. Guess I'll have to stay with 11.1 as long as I can. Makes me a sad panda. KDE 4.X removed a lot of stuff I just like to have. Like a separate wallpaper for every desktop. Stuff I want on the toolbar Bloaty goodness.

    seperate wallpapers are possible with kde4 and pretty simple to do now

    Just installed KDE 3.5.10 from here:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.2

    Took 2 seconds to start up. Great!

    Thanks !

    If you can, what might be of interest, would be for you to run:
    rpm -qa --last
    and then copy the chronological list of the rpms you installed to provide KDE-3.5.10 on 11.2 RC1, and then post that on a pastebin site such as: pastebin - Type, paste, share.

    That way those who like you are curious about KDE3 on 11.2 can setup that repository and then see if an update to KDE3 works for them.

    Separate wallpaper is available - just takes some finding. Top right corner
    of the screen is a funny-looking little gubbins that, if you click on it,
    brings up a menu which contains "configure plasma". Selecting "different
    activity for each desktop" will allow you different wallpapers.

    I was worried about the lack of KDE3.5 goodies (that's why I'm still on 10.3) but this KDE4.3 is finally usable, so if you have some spare time, maybe you should give it a try... I'll definitelly switch to 11.2 once it become official.

    Cheers
