i just want to point out that this article does not really follow the KISS-principle :-) it is so blown with so much stuff that should either be left out as a whole like:
+
  
-First login on KDE is slow (so? i do not think that anyone will be upset about that because everyone will boot at least two times until this gets annoying. and everyone who has used KDE before is already aware of that fact)
+
The recommended way to get globalmenu to work with Firefox does not work now. Read last comments from {{aur|firefox-extension-globalmenu}}. There is {{aur|firefox-ubuntu}} but I'm not sure recommending a package to replace Firefox is a good idea.
  
-I encounter problems with automounting (or) KDE behaves strangely for no apparent reason (what kind of a title is that anyway and i do not see how this is related to KDE anyhow. everyone who does a pacman -S kdebase or whatever will be just rebooting after enabling runlevel 5 everything is fine.)
+

-Qt updating problem during upgrading from KDE SC 4.3 (or previous version) to KDE SC 4.4 (this shouldn't be an issue anymore since everyone installing kde right now will be installing 4.4.4 and i think everyone who uses it, has upgraded already)
+
== Minimal installation ==
  
-The Chakra Project (should get an own wiki-page and should only be mentioned either right from the beginning or at the end. but this is just wack)
+
Minimal installation could be better: suggested kdebase contains program that probably are not used so much (Konqueror, Kwrite), KDE should work fine without kdepasswd and keditbookmarks too. Wallpaper are useless. If available, an option of any kind to completely disable Phonon would be nice, since using ALSA to media playing in Linux is enough, and Phonon is overkill.

-Phonon (this part is very thin. just an explanation taken from wikipedia does not explain very much in a nice way. so either someone is willing to extend it or it should be deleted. moreover phonon is doing a quite nice an unobstrusive job. so one could easily just leave it out)

-Akonadi and external MySQL-Server (does this concern any regular desktop user? i never even cam across this issue or anything related to that. sorry if i am wrong)

==About KDEmod==
+
I deleted all reference to KDEmod, because the chakra project is dead. see http://chakra-project.org/news/index.php?/archives/126-Goodbye-KDEmod-!.html
+
 
+
I left only the heading in relation to [[KDE#Unofficial community repository for KDEmod3]], because it's maintained by [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=97612 Elvaka].

Uh, for clarification, Chakra isn't dead, only the kdemod repos. Chakra is still kicking on.

+
yes .. yes ... I made a mistake, sorry [[User:veleno77|veleno77]] 22:02 2011-01-11

==knotify4 process constantly uses CPU time==
+
WRT ''"It's a bug with Gstreamer phonon back-end"'' it would be great if the upstream bug could be linked here.  Doing so gives the reader a natural springboard to additional information.  Are there other workarounds or a patch I can test?  Is this still a current issue?  Is this really true?  When might it be fixed?
+
 
+
Not only does it add credibility to the article, but at some point when the bug is fixed, the section talking about the bug becomes [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruft cruft].  If a bug tracker is linked, it makes for easier cleanup. [[User:James Eder|James Eder]] 11:48, 21 May 2011 (EDT)

Kicker is no longer existing in KDE Plasma Workspaces, I suspect it should be Kickoff (the default application launcher) instead? --[[User:Mogger|Mogger]] 05:14, 9 February 2012 (EST)

Adding a Global Menu to the desktop

The recommended way to get globalmenu to work with Firefox does not work now. Read last comments from firefox-extension-globalmenuAUR. There is firefox-ubuntuAUR but I'm not sure recommending a package to replace Firefox is a good idea.

Minimal installation

Minimal installation could be better: suggested kdebase contains program that probably are not used so much (Konqueror, Kwrite), KDE should work fine without kdepasswd and keditbookmarks too. Wallpaper are useless. If available, an option of any kind to completely disable Phonon would be nice, since using ALSA to media playing in Linux is enough, and Phonon is overkill. -- Flu (talk) 11:56, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
