Due to all the new exaltation, I almost forgot to reply here ;-)

I didn't even install any of those. (And sorry for my imprecision; these
KDE packages were auto-selected when I chose to install trinity-kicker.)

Yeah, I opted for that one; first I was a bit irritated, because "after"
installing the packages, YaST just quit, where on my older systems it
took quite some time to run configurations afterwards --- now it looked
as if it just crashed at one point. Looked into `yast2 sw_single` and
everything seemed to be fine.

Then I just set TDM as the default, `init 1; init 5`, and I was presented
with TDM. After putting in the password the irritation went on --- I just
had an empty screen, and mouse clicking did nothing... oh, right click
gave a menu... I was in TWM... just 5 more seconds of irritation, then
I logged out, chose TDE in the login menu, and now (almost) everything is
fine.

The only thing I figured to not work was starting a new (second) session.
The screen went black and for about 30 seconds I couldn't do anything;
then I was presented with the TDM login screen again. Not for the second
session, but for a freshly started first one --- the other session has
been killed.

Second thing: <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> doesn't work, but I assume it's something
in the settings...

Anyway, thanks for your help and time, I really appreciate it!

I'm gonna have a great time without KDE4/Gnome/blablabla... :-)

Best regards,
Jagged
