    I'm Qt developer and I prefer KDE instead Gnome... I like KDE, but only 3.5...

    There is this thread
    How-To: Install KDE 3.5 with OpenSUSE 11.2 - openSUSE Forums

    But I don't recommend it!

    kde3 is no longer supported in 11.2

    You could install 11.1
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    If you decide to try KDE3 in 11.1, there is an excellent liveCD here: Carlos Gonçalves: Unofficial KDE 3.5 Live CD for openSUSE 11.1

    And what morons decided that KDE4 only is acceptable? Please... tell me... so I can sends thanks personally KDE 4 is an ABORTION. The lack of KDE3 in 11.2 is the reason OPenSuSE may stop being my distro of choice for all my clients. If you want to force KDE 4, then allow people the ability to configure their desktop THE SAME AS KDE3... without the idiot idea of everything going in that desktop square.... without the idiot idea of not being able to add applications to the panel. OH... did I say a HATE KDE4?

    You can come close to KDE3 appearance by selecting desktop view settings ->
    folder view from either the widget or rt. mouse button on the desktop. The
    folder view uses the entire desktop just like KDE3. Now close that
    annoying floating folder and see if you like it better. I'm not impressed,
    but I'm making an effort to see if I can figure out a way to use it for
    clients w/o the massive re-training that the default setup would require.

    I agree with you that a blanket KDE3 look and feel would be useful but the
    folder view selection is about as close as I've come to date.
