    Update KDE and change WM


    Is there any way i can update KDE from v3.2 to v3.3 without having to download massive files off ftp, can i just update it through the SUSE 9.1 updater?

    also, are there any other WM that i can use instead of Konqueror, because i dont like it? but i still want to use KDE because it is great.

    thanks

    You say WM which stands for Window Manager then refer to Konqueror. Do you mean file manager instead. If that is what you mean then there are a multitude of file managers out there.

    I haven't used it, but Krusader seems to be popular.

    I don't use KDE regularly myself, so I wouldn't know if KDE has it's own system for default applications. But you could try looking for an environmental variable in /etc/profile, ~/.bashrc, or ~/.bash_profile.
