Damn shame that KDE 3 is not being supported. I thought PCLOS is still supporting KDE 3.5 because they have not yet come out with a Live CD KDE 4.xx.
Well anyway, I re-installed PCLOS and I have updated it and have not had the problem come back ( fingers crossed ). I've got PCLOS with KDE 3.5 installed on my other laptop and desktop, but have not seen that problem on them.
If I see this problem continuing, I won't upgrade to KDE 4.xx until it really is stable with the other applications. In that case, I'll run XFCE desktop.
