Hi Andre!

Wow! :-)

Thank you very very much for the very kind words!! :-)

Sorry for the delay in answering -- i am at work during the day, and i 
can only answer KDE-related question in the evening when i get back 
home ... (my employer tends to frown if i engage in KDE-related 
activities while i'm on the payroll ... ;-)

About the language packages:

The sources are available for download from:


The only reason i did not provide packages for i18n is because these 
packages tend to be quite big.

I would be very happy to build the kde-i18n-de package. But i would 
need to kindly ask Eva's permission to upload it, because i don't 
want to be a disk space abuser at KDE more than i already am. :-)

I am very happy for KDE being so successful. I believe 2004 will be an 
even better year for KDE!

I will build kde-i18n-de right now -- it doesn't take very long. :-)

First of all: Thank you Stefan for compiling and tuning
the KDE Solaris packages! We have a great benefit of this
work. In the next weeks we will migrate our 40
Sun Ultra's and our Terminal Server for 40 Ray stations
to KDE 3.1.4. On our test workstations most of the KDE programs
are working very stable. It looks great and performance is
very good.

My question is how can I add languages from the
i18n packages? Are there any precompiled packages?
(Is a compilation step needed for the packages? -
As I've seen it is needed - but currently we have
no Forte 8 compilers in our Institute.)

I'm interested in the german language packs (de or de_DE).
Can anybody help me?

Greetings from Dresden,
