gnome 2 kde
Now that I've chosen to use kde rather than gnome, I need some alternate programs that are native to kde/qt.
Progs I need alternates for
Gimp ---- (can this be compiled with kde support?)
Firefox --- (can this be compiled with kde support?)
Gaim --- (Kopete? I've used this before but didn't like it too much, I only use msn btw.)
Games --- (Knights?)
Programming --- ( I want to do java and c and possibly c++, can kdevelop handle all this?)
Office --- (I'll probably use OOo rather than k*, unless k* suddenly gets ms support, mainly .doc and .(powerpoint))
Eog --- (any good image viewers?)
BTW can konqueror use java? I want to be able to play yahoo chess.
Can I make it so that aps start during startup in kde? lstarting kopete everytime I login? I know I can do this in gnome but.............
Post suggestions for programs in the listed catagories or suggest other good programs please.
most of those programs work fine on KDE. I use Firefox, gaim, and OOo, and I could use gimp. There's no problem with KDE.
I use Firefox, Gaim, AND Gimp. All work just fine. Gaim and GIMP were built into mine, however old versions, but that just makes it all the more easy to upgrade ;).
Well, yesterday, as I was doing emerge kdelibs, a little problem popped up and kdelibs failed :?, and does eclipse-sdk, gentoo is getting worse.....
The thing I's trying to say is that I want apps that blend into my desktop, gimp, firefox, eog, etc. were all compiled with gtk/gnome use flags, so I want programs that use kde/qt useflags or are native to kde/qt that do the same thing.
What distro are you using? Some installs include both Gnome and KDE:
The /etc/sysconfig/desktop file specifies the desktop for new users and the display manager to be run when entering runlevel 5.
Correct values are:
DISPLAY=<value>, where <value> is one of the following:
GNOME — Selects the GNOME desktop environment.
KDE — Selects the KDE desktop environment.
DISPLAYMANAGER=<value>, where <value> is one of the following:
GDM — Selects the GNOME display manager.
KDM — Selects the KDE display manager.
XDM — Selects the XFree86 display manager.
