      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Problem with icon switching

Recommended Posts

Upgraded kde to 3.5.3 today. I have removed any 3.4.2 rpm. Only problem I have found is that when I switch icons using the Mandriva "Configure my Desktop" (kde control center) the window crashes. The icons change, but the "updating system" bar has disappeared and the window stops responding. No other functions are affected except icons. Thoughts?

I have uploaded new packages from glib2, dbus, avahi, hal, mono, kde packages, etc, check.

You use x86?

Here in both arches all runs fine.

 

Anyway it would be good that we could see the error, maybe start those by konsole and paste the the output.
