Hello, Bas - 

Thanks for the suggestion.  I had already dome most of it, so I tried to 
upgrade KDE with singular lack of success. ;-)
 
(No. Myriam, I have not abandoned your suggestion.  It is just that if this 
worked, it woul dbe simpler for me.  But I shall appear on irc later when I 
am not dashing in and out.)  If this doesn't work for me, that is.

How did you do this?  (The upgrade bit.)

Again, how did you do the upgrading?  My attempts aren't being very 
successful.

Yes - that sounds a very good idea, if I could only achieve it.
