    I want to upgrade my KDE install but I don't want to lose the openSUSE
    theme (the green, the icons, etc). How do I do that?

    add these repo's

    KDE4 Factory:

    Desktop:
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/5mxwaf)

    Extra:
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://tinyurl.com/5t7aof)

    Community:
    'Index of
    /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop'
    (http://tinyurl.com/65tbsr)

    =====================================================

    Be warned. 4.0.4 does not like the upgrade and you may have to start
    with a new .kde4 folder.
    If you don't understand this - ask back here

    When you update use Yast Software Management and do 'Update All
    Unconditionally' in the newly added repo's
    (I have a video you can download to see that method)
    'Yast - Software Management -Update All_HowTo - openSUSE Forums'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6l798k)

    ===============================================

    I have moved on to the unstable 4.2 but it's great. But maybe try 4.1.3
    first

    Where do I add those repositories? With rpm or zypper at the command
    line? In YAST?

    I am new to this, so what exactly does that entail?

    I assume this is in Yast's "Install Software"?

    thanks!

    You can "zypper ar http://your_new_repository
    arbitrary_name_for_the_repo" or use Yast → Software →
    Repositories.
    > I am new to this, so what exactly does that entail?

    In your home folder there's a hidden folder called .kde4. That's the
    place where KDE4 stores your KDE4 configuration. Make a backup of your
    current .kde4 folder and try if 4.1 works with the original .kde folder.
    If not, just delete .kde4 while you are in runlevel 3 or so. On the next
    start of KDE a new .kde folder will be created.
    > I assume this is in Yast's "Install Software"?

    That's where I usually do it.
    The opensuse style you don't want to lose comes with the
    opensuse-branding packages in the repos above. Those will be upgraded
    automatically, too. I'd like to mention that I just upgraded to KDE4.2
    beta from the unstable repositories and it works really well. Much
    better than 4.1.x. In order to upgrade I had to add the Qt repository as
    well 'Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.0/)

    Yes. You need the QT for 4.2 but he was asking for 4.1.3

    I have added the repo's but can't figure out how to do the update all
    and the video won't play for some reason. It's just a blank screen. How
    do I do this?

    Maybe you are not ready for this. The video does work I just tried it
    again myself.

    With the conflict error box, press the expert button and save the error
    to file then copy it here so we can see it.
