    Probably best to just ignore KDE4 until it becomes stable and use 3.5.9 or whatever the older version is.

    Ahh well than I will stick with Gnome, I like it better than KDE 3.5, just wanted to give 4 a try.

    do you have KDE4.0.0 or KDE4.0.4? If you have KDE4.0.0, go to http://kubuntu.org and there there are all the instruction to put 4.0.4 (and in a few days even 4.1b1) . Good luck

    I am very new to Ubuntu and I have no idea how to determine which KDE4 version I have. Today I just went to terminal and did the apt-get KDE4, and I could also not find the KDE download on Kubuntu, I could only find the download of the Kubuntu ISO.

    ok, than you have KDE4.0.0.
    I suggest you to follow this guide: http://kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-4.0.4.php
    Good luck

    I would not exactly call that a guide, it did nto really instruct me to do anything, I don't necessarily want to install the whole Kubuntu. I just want KDE4.

    Re: KDE4 Crashes when booting (GRR)

    there is the guide. Here the main point:

    The packages are in hardy-backports, available from Adept Manager when you choose Unsupported Updates from the Updates tab of Manage Repositories, kubuntu-kde4-desktop and do a full upgrade.

    install kubuntu-kde4-desktop is not meaning install kubuntu, but all the kde4 packages

    Re: KDE4 Crashes when booting (GRR)

    Ok now I installed the Kubuntu KDE4 Desktop, and I restarted and tried to run a KDE 4 session, it started up displayed the desktop for 5 seconds played an error sound, and crashed back to login.

    Have you tried deleting your configuration files?

    Code:
    rm -fr ~/.kde4
