    [SOLVED] Re: Kwin/mouse theme issue

    I'm not sure what is causing your problem, but for taking a screenshot you can use KSnapshot.

    I don't know about *buntu because I use Gnome, but in Arch it came preinstalled with the KDE system. ...

    Re: Wow... VIM is awesome!!!

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned this.

    Never really experimented with editors myself, just stuck to nano because it's what I used first.

    That's what I was just thinking.

    Re: Light software

    What about XFCE?

    It's very light, and it is a Desktop Environment.

    If you still want to choose between only Gnome and KDE, I agree with the other posters, Gnome may be you best option.
