Hi,
+
 
+
I could get my kde work by executing "kdm" on the linux prompt. executing "startx" starts some primitive desktop (I am not sure which one that is, probably one of icewm/wmaker/..).

Thats works for me now. I am curious to know if there is a straight method (Do I ahve to create a .xinitrc on my /root directory?)

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)
