see attachment it works for me!? Maybe your locale settings are wrong?

I think the best solution for that is a runnable xmms2 on ultrasparc Solaris10,
which will be included in KDE at compile time. I dont know if there any runnable
version of xmms2 on SunRay's?

Sometimes it is possible that old KDE/QT settings makes the new kde-3.5.7
corrupt; thats why we introduce our users to setup a new (fresh) KDE settings.
Here are the commands to get a clean and fresh KDE setup:
mv .dt .dtprofile .gnome .qt .xinitrc .backup-kde-3.5.7-solaris10/
mv .gtkrc-kde .kde .kderc .mcop .mcoprc .backup-kde-3.5.7-solaris10/
mv Desktop .backup-kde-3.5.7-solaris10/
# and now start KDE-3.5.7 and setup the system
We have created a default .kde-tar file to simplify the fresh installation setup.

We have only sometimes problems with the X-Server which consumes much memory
over the time (maybe a bug in X-Server). Exists a roadmap at SUN for upgrading
the X-Server to current XORG-Server version?
