Well, I replaced my KDE 3.2.2 installation with stefans latest KDE 3.3.0
I am running it on SunBlade 1500 Solaris 9 09/04
What I did was " pkgrm -n KDEPackage " for each of the old packages and then
rename my users .kde directory to kdeold.
Then " pkgadd -d . " for the REQUIRED and KDE directories in Stefans package.
Most if not all in the rest of the Install instructions was don last time around.
The first thing I did was of course to test the Xglobe app.
It did not work because the map file provide is a JPG file not a BMP. I quickly
moved over my BMP files from my FreeBSD/X86 installation, and Xglobe started to work.
Thanks for this !!!!!!
I am using this command string now:
xglobe -pos 'fixed 50 15' -shift '-600 0' -nightmapfile nightmap.bmp -cloudmapfile cloud.bmp
-cloudfilter 110 -shade_area 20 -dump -once -size %x,%y -nomarkers && mv xglobe-dump.bmp %f
the reason for the "-shift '600 0' " string is that I am running xinerama over two 21" screens
this is my /etc/dt/config/Xservers line:
:0 Local local_uid at console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun +xinerama
-dev /dev/fb0 defdepth 24 -dev /dev/fb1 defdepth 24
So to get the full globe on one screen I need to shift it 600 pixels.
To make Mozilla run, I had to add /usr/sfw/lib to the end of LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
in /opt/kde-3.3.0/bin/startkde .
Yes I did read about the conflicts with libXML but as I added it to the end of the path
I should be alrigth.
For some reason the "konsole" app was not included in my menu or Panel
so I added it.
The icon-buttons in the graphic utility "Kuickshow" are not visible. They work when pressed
but the Icons are not shown on them.
Sound & artsd seems to be working smoothly in this release.
