I could check again tonight but I seem to recall there only being 3 mentions of the word java in kdebase and 3 of those were in the configure stuff. To get java working in KDE you need a decent JRE which is basically the blackdown one. Debian can't distribute this, but you can find a source from apt-get.org. The configure switch does not prevent KDE from using java. -- David Pashley email@example.com Nihil curo de ista tua stulta superstitione.
