Can a note be added on how to change the Xephyr keyboard layout? I tried several options already but always end up with the default qwerty layout :( --[[User:tbscope|tbscope]] 15:06, 24 February 2007 (CET)

The default screen size for Xephyr is 640x480 which is not enough for using KDE. I propose adding the parameter -screen 1024x768x16 for example. --[[User:Kebianizao|Kebianizao]] 19:45, 10 July 2007 (CET)

ssh?

What benefits does ssh -X kde-devel@localhost have over su - kde-devel? The question is directed mainly at tstaerk. ;) Logixoul 00:54, 5 January 2007 (CET)

Using sux

Have you considered using sux instead of "ssh -X" or "su - kde-devel && export DISPLAY=:0 && xhost +localhost:kde-devel" I see it easier and more convient. Kebianizao 18:40, 7 July 2007 (CET)

$KDEDIR

IIRC, $KDEDIR is not used anymore for some weeks now. It's $KDEDIRS now. Right? --Dhaumann 19:35, 27 January 2007 (CET)

Yes, but as used in this tutorial it's just a regular environment variable used to fill in the $PREFIX in other env vars. Perhaps it should be renamed to $KDE_PREFIX or something? --Aseigo 00:55, 30 January 2007 (CET)
How about $KDEBASEDIR? --80.250.128.6 08:43, 30 January 2007 (CET)
Ah ok. Then let's keep KDEDIR, it's short and meaningful. --Dhaumann 09:29, 30 January 2007 (CET)

Xephyr

keyboard layout

Can a note be added on how to change the Xephyr keyboard layout? I tried several options already but always end up with the default qwerty layout :( --tbscope 15:06, 24 February 2007 (CET)

screen size

The default screen size for Xephyr is 640x480 which is not enough for using KDE. I propose adding the parameter -screen 1024x768x16 for example. --Kebianizao 19:45, 10 July 2007 (CET)

kdesdk

Wouldn't it be helpful, to post a hint, that the installation of kdesdk is very useful? --Lucas-r2d2 18:37, 3 May 2007 (CEST)

Well, probably yes (I don't use it myself). Please add it to the page (I'd say same level as KDevelop/KBugBuster/...). Explain how to install it (if that is much different from kdebase) and explain how to use the programs included there and why they are useful. Make sure there is no overlap with this page.
