Re: Desktop disappears, everything else works

  Did you choose "kde2" in the kdm menu ? If "default" is selected, what you 
describe is normal, I think (something about launching a session manager vs 
launching a window manager).

Teach me passion for I fear it`s gone. Show me love, hold the lorn.
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me. I`m sorry.
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you
And you... I wish I didn`t feel for you anymore...
