First I like to introduce myself. My name is Roland Kaeser I work as 
Systems Engineer at the mathematics institute at the University of 
Zurich. We are currently in progress of migrating the jds to KDE 3.5.4. 
The special thing by this is that we completly use a SUN Ray environment 
for professors and assistants.

While preparing the new environment on the test area, we got several 
questions about kde on solaris for we couldn't find a working solution 
on google etc.
I would like to just list our current problem in the hope somebody here 
can give us short hints about a solution.

First: How can we integrate the utx-lock and the SUN-Ray mobile sessions 
into the kde environment? It works on JDS. But we couldn't get it 
working on KDE after reading all avialable docs and mailing list entries 
for that problem.

Second: We have some problems getting the "normal" konsole behaviour 
working on the KDE konsole. Specially the CTRL+C key and colors in ls 
lists seems not to work correct.

Third: Is there a good documentation for predefining kde user settings 
for our productive environment such as the kde menu, file associations, 
screensaver behaviour (utxlock), disabling special features such as 
transparency. We tried already the kiosk-tool but it seems that this was 
optimized for linux so it doesn't lets us define the profiles correctly 
and often crashes.

Fourth: Just nice to have. Does somebody know how to activate the icon 
smoothing? Currently the icons looks a bit pixeling.

Many thanks in advance for all help
