    Default kde3 in 12.1

    Just in case you want to know.
    I have tried the publicised kde3 that they quote as being back in 12.1

    It's not a pattern, which doesn't help
    I added the kde3 factory repo too
    And it works nicely.

    But I wouldn't quite describe it as being back. It's fiddly to install and and kde3-powersave isn't functioning properly
    No kde3-ksnapshot
    Otherwise it seems good
    Certainly very snappy

    I always install kde 3 and still use it sometimes - although I mainly use kde4. It generally works fine with 12.1 - I've found that any rpm's missing from the kde3 factory repo or packman repo can usually be obtained by using the equivalent 11.4 or 11.3 rpm's.

    One thing that I have noticed is that with 11.4 kde3 apps worked in kde4 and kde4 apps worked in kde3. But with 12.1 not all kde4 apps work in kde3 - although kde3 apps work fine in kde4.

    kpowersave is not included in 12.1, you can only install it from KDE:KDE3 repository because it requires hal. Hal priviledges had changed so it may require adjustment (you would have also to enable hal service).

    ksnapshot is in kdegraphics3 package.

    Also note that there is already KDE:KDE3 for 12.1, so no need to attach Factory repo.
