Collecting anomalies that apply to kde 3.1 in general, or to components of kde that are too small to create a separate page for.




Version Number Does Not Apply to All Components

The most frustrating anomaly that applies to kde as a whole is that that the version number for kde does not imply the same version number for all of the parts of kde. For instance, kde 3.1 includes kmail 1.5, etc.

It may be that Mandrake compounds the problem. I acquired Mandrake 9.1 (and Knoppix 3.2, both) with kde 3.1 in hopes of getting kdevelop 3.1. Not present in either (forget the exact version in each, something like 2.1.5 in Mandrake, maybe about the same in Knoppix). IIRC, when I selected kdevelop during the Mandrake install, it was labeled as 3.1 on the install "tree".

Run Popup Requires Too Many <Enter>s

Update: I was mistaken — the problem was that it takes a fairly long time before you (I) see any signs of konqueror starting, and I got impatient and clicked again, and usually saw action after the third click.

There may be other things that affect this — earlier today, after entering k and then selecting konqueror from the drop down menu, I had to press the <enter> key three times before konqueror tried to start. Just now, while testing to confirm that, and entering m and selecting mozilla, it took just an appropriate number of <enter>s (two). And, trying it again for konqueror it seems OK. So, what was I doing different (I definitely needed three presses, earlier, counted several times.

Note a similar problem in KMail15Anomalies re the PageUp and PageDown keys.

The problem "cured itself" after a reboot. (Need to insert obligatory statement about duplicating Windows functionality going too far?)
