Thread: How can I use kde3-quanta with Leap 42.2

    Default How can I use kde3-quanta with Leap 42.2

    I am a long time user of Quanta Plus. I was successfully able to use it with Leap 42.1 by installing the KDE3 repo. I was able to navigate to the program on the plasma 5 desktop.

    I just upgraded to Leap 42.2 and went through the same procedure. But I cannot access the program through the Plamsa 5 desktop. I have to log in using the KDE desktop. I like the lay out of plasma 5. Is there a way to start the program while on this desktop?

    are you sure kde3-quanta is still installed?
    afaik kde3 apps work fine with LEAP 42.2 I used a few of them
    what's your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    what about kde3-quanta
    Code:
    zypper info kde3-quanta
    you can always add the kde3 repo for 42.2 and install kde3-quanta
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/KDE:KDE3.repo
    zypper in kde3-quanta
    if you have kde3-quanta installed but it's icon doesn't show up in plasma 5's launcher there maybe something wrong with your setup
    I'd say check for it's launcher is in \opt\kde3\share\applications\kde\

    I have the kde3 repo and kd3-quanta installed.

    I navigated to the launcher as suggested. I found the icon in this folder:
    \opt\kde3\share\applications\kde\

    I can open it and use the program normally. But it is an inefficient way to access it every time I want to use it. I still cannot navigate to it from the desktop's launcher. Normally I would add the icon to the launcher, but don't see a way to do it.

    Any ideas?

    Problem solved!

    I right clicked in the desktop launcher and choose "edit applications". From there I navigated to the internet section and clicked on "more applications". I found the quanta plus icon and then clicked on it. I was hoping it would then show up in the desktop launcher in the "internet" section. It wasn't there.

    But I did find the quanta plus icon in the "recent applications" section of my desktop launcher. From there I could right click and add to it to favorites. Now it is in the favorites in my launcher. Easy to find and launch the application from there.

    I hope this helps someone else.
