Erik, Thanks! That was the magic bullet. The addition of the
ui_standard file corrected the menu issues completely. And yes, I believe
you are right about not completely purging previous versions. I ran into
the same scenario trying to upgrade X on a couple Debian machines. It
seems that dpkg --remove doesn't do as complete a job as dpkg --purge.
It would seem that --remove leaves some scripts/data/info behind that
may make subsequent reinstalls skip installing some files from within a
package, maybe it thinks they are already there. --purge seems to wipe
the slate completely clean. At any rate, KDE 3.0.2 is now working
wonderfully. Thanks for your help!
