Experience with 3.05a -> 3.1 upgrade
we've upgraded yesterday from 3.05a to 3.1 without any problem
(--purge remove'd kde qt arts stuff before the 3.1 install).
Here some problem when our users logged in again (FYI):
o all fonts were in italic (very unreadable). kontrolcenters font settings
listed a regular font but it was in italics. ths affected all users that did
not customize their font settings before. Fix was that I've
had to add a set of fonts to /etc/kde3/system.kdeglobals. E.g.,
o kmail: looks like some .*index* files were not properly upgraded
Some folders contained lots of message with emtpy to From: Subject
and body. Exit kmail and delete the .*index* files below ~/Mail
fixed it. Again not everyone run into this problem.
o Half dozen people found themself 'without' kicker and complained loudly.
Turned out the kicker was just '1' pixel high. Resizing fixed it ;) It's sitll
not clear what was problem.
o Lots of people could not resist to mention that the brownish debian -whirl
background of the login screen needs an update. Looks too old fashioned.
o While new icon theme default was crystal, the window decoration default
was not keramik but the 'old' kde 3.0 one. Would be nice if a postinstall
script would set the the new system wide default to keramik.
To me vi is Zen. To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
You discover truth everytime you use it.
