Re: [trinity-users] Last Kubuntu Version That Came With KDE3?

I've tried that route and had mucho trouble getting them 
to install/run under the new libs. So now I stick with what 
is in the repos. 

I'm not that tech savvy when I comes to compiling and 
installing. Plus I worry about wrecking what already works! 
So far TDE-Kubunto seems to have what I'm looking for. 

And I too want to get away from KDE 4... :-D

I think you should be able to find the older version(s) of what you
are worried about -- maybe at SourceForge, maybe at a devoted web site.

You may need to compile from source to get them to play nice with
new/updated distro libraries.

For instance, I installed an "older" version of KDE on this 
system to get away from KDE 4. :-)

Just my thoughts.
