    Welcome to the opensuse forums.

    KDE 3 can we installed very easily with opensuse 12.1. I personally prefer KDE 4 but always install kde 3.5 as I sometimes like to use that for a change. You can use all the kde 4 applications with kde 3 and kde 3 applications with kde 4.

    To add kde 3 to your install just do the following:

    click on the kickoff (start) button / computer icon (on the botttom) / yast / type in the root password / software repos / add / community repos / put a tick in the kde3 one and then OK / software management / view / repos

    then select the kde3 repo and add what you would like to install. would suggest that you install the main base packages. if you then log out of kde4 - there is an option button to selecr session and you will see kde3 shown

    In thinking about doing that not really a fan of 4

    How long will 3 be supported?

    Can i use 3 and another user use 4?

    Thx
