I somehow managed to get onto the KDE download server and grab a copy of the new .debs. This new desktop lives up to its advance billing. I like it very much. A number of applications which depend on libqt3c102-mt --- including all of KOffice 1.3, kvim, k3b, (and for those using Libranet) adminmenu --- were all uninstalled. I am certain that a resolution is in the works. Does anyone know the timing?
