Greetings all;

I have a sacrificial old box I call goat cuz its being sacrificed on the alter 
of knowledge.

Fresh install of ubuntu-8.04 LTS and then updated, I found the meta file for 
kde-4 and installed 250+ packages of kde with it.  Twice now, once with the 
default installer and once with synaptic, they don't seem to be aware of each 
others databases.  That brings up the requestor (both times) that confirms my 
choice of kdm-kde4 as the window manager.

On reboot, the kubuntu splash comes up, but at login it looks as if it is 
using the gnome login.  Once the user and pw have been entered, the kubunutu 
splash comes back until it actually does the startx, at which time it is back 
to gnome for the desktop, but with a large number of kde apps present in the 

What does it take to make it kde4 all the way?

Cheers, Gene
