If you run KDE as full desktop:
/opt/kde/bin/startkde
/opt/kde/bin/startkde2

Or if you run apps from another desktop:
/usr/local/KDE-3.5.5/Kicker

Reading startkde2 I assume if I place a file kdewm.sh in ~/.kde with the contents "export KDEWM=beryl-manager" and make it executable, a new environment variable should be created.
after startup however "terminal>env" does not list KDEWM, furthermore kwin still initializes.

What am I missing?

sincerely,
orbisvicis

you might put it in the beginning of /root/.xinitrc or add it to startkde.
startkde is my own script, as I had to set some settings for Puppy, and did not want to alter the original startkde. So I renamed that to startkde2, and run it from the new startkde.

very nice!
i just stuck "export KDEWM=beryl-manager" into startkde with all the other exports and kwin no longer starts.
Just a note, kde doesnt seem to load anything in .xinitrc

This helps well

thanks,

I think .xinitrc has in the beginning somewhere

Code:
if [ $CURRENTWM == "startkde" ];then
  exec startkde
fi


Or similar.
That was made to avoid, that for example ROX starts with KDE.

It seems it was removed in Puppy 2.14, but 2.11 or 2.12 still had it I think.

So you had to put stuff before that part.
However, using startkde is just fine, too Smile
It might be even better, as with Puppys systemfiles like .xinitrc there is always the risk, that it will be overwritten by an upgrade or so.

Also, about KDE's recycle bin:
I can add it to the desktop as trash:/ and even configure it with empty/full images, however after reboot it disappears (/root/Desktop/Trash.desktop)
Perhaps this is b/c:
-I use a remastered puppy
Pretty much the only thing I can think of.

Subject description: And for a HD full install?
 

What if I have a full hard disk installation of Puppy?

I simply have to put the sfs file in / instead of /mnt/home and everything else is the same? Rolling Eyes

Thanks Wink

I am not sure, so you should try. But I don't think a full hd install will mount sfs. Maybe frugal.
If it does not work, just install your current copy to cd/usb, add the kde sfs, remaster, then install h/d.

Thanks a lot! Smile

After some usual libqt problems, everything is working fine now, even on my old Puppy 2.02: now I can finally try k3b! Very Happy
