KDE3 vs. KDE4
Note: This problem did not exist for me in Beta 3. I am leaving this page available for reference only.
After installation I noticed some things that I normally run with kdesu looked very strange.
Konquerer well.. wasn't Konqueror anymore. It's some new KDE4 file browser called "Dolphin".
And konsole OMG I have no clue what the hell that actually was.
By uninstalling all of the KDE4 stuff (YaST Software Management), I was able to get my normal KDE3 applications operational again.
I don't know why the KDE4 versions of these apps only worked when I was running them with kdesu (root)... I just know I wasn't real fond of either of them lol.
