after having installed qt-3.0.6 and kde-3.0.4 and solving several
initial problems mainly due to wrong path/environment settings, a few
problems have remained for which I can't find a reason/solution:
1) if I try to login as root in KDM, I get the "login failed" response.
If I login as user and then invoke the superuser with the same password,
everything works out fine however. Also the background of the login
screen is not the one specified (kiagara) in the control center, login
2) the KDE help center doesn't work, it says: "an error occurred while
loading help:/khelpcenter/index.html?anchor=welcome: could not start
process Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said: Unknown protocol
Unfortunately, I don't know how to interprete this error message. Should
there be a subdirectory "help" somewhere?
My distribution is SuSE 8.1 professional, but kde has been installed
from source in the default position: usr/local/kde.
Both check out correctly with the echo command in the console.
This message is from the kde mailing list.
