    Re: KDE3 for lucid has just arrived.

    There is active development on new functionality that usually makes its way into each release, so more than just bugs are being worked on. ;)



    Actually, new development for the old KDE3 series...

    Hmmm...very odd. I run over 20 machines with Karmic and KDE3 and have yet to see this bug (not that it doesn't exist; just makes troubleshooting more difficult).

    Can you try creating a brand new...

    Yup; I upgraded the server to Karmic and the new Apache installation gave me quite a bit of grief (SSL virtual hosts are apparently broken under 2.2.12). Downgrading Apache has fixed the issue and...

    All the KDE3 apps now have a -kde3 suffix appended. For example, to install the KDE3 version of Amarok from now on, you would install amarok-kde3 instead of amarok, kdevelop becomes kdevelop-kde3,...

    Hate to say this, but it seems that your system is hosed. It sounds like the core system itself is messed up (X, your video drivers, maybe even the default home directory). It might...
