KDE Question(s)

KDE Question(s)

KDE Question(s)

Be warned I'm new to this world!

A few questions about KDE & Caldera:

Caldera 2.3 ships with KDE 1.1.1. According to the box, it also includes the "Themes Manager" and 80 themes. The themes manager was not installed by default, I assume that I have to install it myself from one of the CD's. Does anyone know where I can find the manager on the Caldera CD's?

KDE 1.1.2 has been released. This version has the themes manager built in and "makes all other versions obsolete." My Linux machine does not have Internet access. Does anyone know where I can get KDE 1.1.2 on CD?

Thanks for your help.

Hmmm....check the search engines on that one.....wan't toooo long ago that I saw some sor of $5+S&H for us to do a download for you & mail it to you on CD deal.....you might be able to find 'em that way ;)


*nix installation & program collector/reseller. Contact me if you think you've got one that I don't :-)

RE: KDE Question(s)

FYI - I found this on alt.os.linux.caldera


In your ad on your box you say that you include the kde theme manager
and 80 kde themes. I can't find theme anywhere. How do I install them?


To install the kde theme manager go to a commandline or terminal window.
Put your install cdrom in your cdrive. Then change to the
/col/contrib/RPMS directory. In here your kthememgr along with all of
the kde themes is located. To install the kde theme manager
type rpm -ivh kthememgr* and press enter. To install the themes
type rpm -ivh kdetheme* and press enter.

The kde theme manager is then installed off of the
k menuĀ¦settingsĀ¦desktop option.
