And they broke KDE...in some sort of strange and bizarre way, KDE still works. Yet...I have no applications, I cannot open a single KDE specific application, such as the KMenu, or the Control Center.
I should've stayed with the original version, I basically bypassed the dependency warning, and then...I have no KMenu.
This might not help, but I also installed Epiphany and Wget, actually upgraded.
Just so you know, I can't even GET IN Menu Editor, and there isn't a single problem in the KMenu, might I reiterate.
Good news is, I can still use the terminal, which I have conviently located near the Window Pager.
I was looking at other topics, turns out some others have the same problem...
Note to Self: Ignore glib and xorg upgrades, as hell will break loose.
Well atleast GNOME still works.
Hi Blizzard Wolf.
The simplest near-term solution is to replace xorg by xfree86 and wait for a reliable update of xorg.
Do the following:
1. Go to a console (Ctrl-Alt-F1, for example).
2. Log in as root.
3. Shut down X11 by typing: init 3
4. Replace xorg by xfree86: pacman -S xfree86
5. Create the configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (I like to use 'hwd' for this, which creates /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.hwd which you can copy or rename; you can install hwd using pacman).
6. Restart the X server: init 5
7. Log into KDE and perform any needed configuration clean up.
i don't know if there was anything posted here on the forum but i seem to recall some people talking about KDE - Xorg 6.8 incompatabilities. i don't know if the arch kde maintainer is aware of these bugs or not though.
xorg should have gone into testing firs thought imo
I am not your friend
I agree, they should be tested on an old Pentium 4 with 256 RAM and all that jive beforehand...Of course the cheapest of components work just fine...
Oh and thank you for the suggestion...but I see that, for some reason...GNOME always works when KDE doesn't, actually it always works. I'm going to have to make a couple of application shortcuts.
