    Default Inadvertant KDE Update

    Some what sheepish grin!!

    I decided to do a 1 click update to KDE 4.2 from 4.0 However, I aborted
    after I found umpteen conflicts. I thought I would wait fro 4.3 in the

    However, I decided to update my packages anyway. I hit the update and
    lo and behold my repositories had pointed to KDE 4.2. So I got an update
    to 4.2.

    However, KDE4.2 wouldn't even start!!!

    I managed to open Yast from the failsafe command line and then scoured
    the repositories for everything 4.2 and updated it.

    I now have a reasonable working KDE 4.2. However, the task bar doesn't
    look very pretty but I can live with that.

    But now Firefox has given up entirely it got updated when I did a
    general update.

    It has given me a chance to use the new KDE 4.2 Konqueror that actually
    looks quite good!

    I have tried deinstalling and re-installing but no avail

    But... I would like my firefox to work.

    Any Ideas?

    Also any advice on my inadvertent update to KDE 4.2

    Many thanks

    ps. I am a total newbie Suse addict

    Login to CLI and do this:

    mv /home/*username/.kde4 .kde4old

    that will give you a new kde4 settings folder - *username = must put
    your username.

    you can do the same with mozilla

    mv /home/*username/.mozilla .mozillaold

    this will start a new mozilla settings - you can pick up your bookmarks
    from the .mozillaold folder

    Slightly odd - Is you say you were kde4.0 (so is this OS 11.0)

    In Yast Software Management if you filter by repo and select the new
    kde4 factory repo, see if there are blue (or maybe red) packages. If
    only blue - do update all in this list if New avail
    If red there too, do update all unconditionally.
