That is not the display I need Mike, its been on all along.

What I am refering to are the groups of small squares, arranged in groups 
of 8, under the normal result window, each of which turns black when 
that bit on an 8 bit byte is set.  They can also be clicked on, setting 
or unsetting the bit, with the result display above following suit.  So 
you can construct a binary pattern, and instantly see the hexidecimal 
representation it represents.

This is part of the KDE kcalc, but is missing from the TDE kcalc. I've 
found it handier than sliced bread, bottled beer and instant sex 
combined at times.

Plus, the TDE version  appears no place in the launch menu's where KDE 
makes it easily useable from the menu's, where now I must tie up a 
terminal session to run it.

Would it be possible to re-install the KDE version without a dependency 
hell tearing down the rest of the system?

Thank you.
