    install suse dvd/cd , during installation select either gnome or kde as
    desktop manager ( at this moment in time it does not matter which one
    you choose) make sure that when you create a user logon dont tick
    automatic login ( to make it easier for yourself).
    towards the end of the installation you are presented with a summary of
    all things that suse is going to do to your computer.
    there is an option called software, click on software and then on the
    next screen select kde4. press save and complete installation.

    once installation is completed you will be presented with logon
    screen.

    select other, towards the bottom of the logon screen you can now choose
    between kde4 or gnome. type the username of the user you had created and
    then password and voila.

    hope this helps.

    Adding to this, I never changed desktop environment. So, if I have both
    KDE 3.5.x and 4.x installed, and using 3.5 as default, how can I change
    today to use 4.x and then to change back to 3.5 when I please and back
    to 4.x etc?

    I mean, changing KDEs back and forth with less hustle possible

    It could be possible if you are login to kde 3.5
    Just open a terminal and run plasma then you will be able to run both
    in one shot

    Sorry, how to run plasma from terminal?
    Command was not found, I typed into smart, it just installed themes, so
    I reckon I have plasma already.

    Does it mean kde 4 is not fully installed in your system?

    I am using two monitors on one machine with xfce The first monitor is
    using the xfce desktop and the other I use kde 4 sometimes to play with
    it from the terminal with that command. In some of the screenshots
    thread from the previous months I posted a screeny showing plasma
    running from xfce.

    Hmm... seems that it is not... when I tried to add, it woul downgrade
    some kde4 packages from 4.1.x to 4.0.x, and will uninstall another bunch
    or so...
    maybe I will just forget about this for now.
