View Full Version : [kde] Intrepid KDE 3.5 repo

Hi! I hate gnome, and love kde 3.5.x series.
Unfortunately KDE 3.5 is not WM in latest Kubuntu 8.10 - and i can understand that. KDE 4.1.x is (in my opinion) just eye candy and i really do not like concept of plasmoids engine, beside on my GeForce 8400m kde 4 is glitchy'n'slow (even thought i have 177.80 drivers with modificated xorg.conf) . Getting to the point i can understant all those things, but i do not understand one: Y is there no KDE 3.5.x intrepid repository:-s

I totally agree!

I installed KDE4 and promptly UNinstalled it about a week later - it's buggy as hell and if I want to use something that constantly falls over or just plain doesn't work, I'll stick with Windows thanks.

So until Intrepid gives us some KDE 3.5 love, there is not a snowball's chance in HELL I am upgrading - much as I'd actually LIKE to...

Yea it'd be nice if an option was available like OpenSUSE

on the contrary you can make 4 look like 3.5 within a few minutes.

as for the rendering issues the 180.44 nvidia driver fixes this issues !

another thing, many of you probably experienced kde 4.1 and said the heck with it, kde 4.2 was released recently that fixed a load of issues.

my computer is currently sporting kde 4.2.2, never been so happy.
