So, should I install the existing debian packages on my main box?
So tempting...

 KDE 3.4 Performance

 by permafrost91 on: Mar 19 2005

Perhaps this is just me but I can't say that KDE 3.4 has improved in any way in performance. I'm running it with FC3 on my IBM A30 P3 1GHz/384MB RAM and it takes just as long to load as any old KDE release and the translucency and shadow effects while nice definitely make for a huge performance hinderance (even on my system which I didn't expect). In addition, and this is a Fedora issue I think, editing the kdmrc file has no effect on the login screen (and the Control Panel login screen module doesn't load in super-user mode and KDM doesn't allow root logins).

On the whole, KDE 3.4 definitely is a mile-stone release but for me it's not breath-taking just yet.

i have a faster system than you, but KDE 3.4 is faster than gnome running on C3. also, check out the kdm theme switcher on this site. there is a fc3 rpm for it and it works perfectly.

The theme switcher works well for me too ... but I'm not too concerned about KDM themes as I spend most of my time logged in to the desktop :)

I'm mostly just saddened by the fact that I can't run translucency and shadows without a significance loss of performance. I would not have thought these two processes to be as hardware intensive as they are.

 bluetooth headset

I successfully installed bluetooth on my KDE 3.3 enviroment and almost everything seems to work fine.
My problem is how I can channel the sound (alsa) to the headset. (Logitech HS1)

Anything new in KDE 3.4?

I don't like the history log in the KDM logon panel .

There are no options to hidden this history log....

Design ????

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
