    Hi everybody,

    Thank you for the efficient responses.

    The "snip-snap" of Sanne works well. Thanks to Internet too: 
Could it be include in the future TDE DVD :-) ? Looking for the coloring 
of the "primary" prompt, I see that it is commented out in the file 

    Thank you, Tim:
    I removed everything related to PulseAudio with help of Synaptic and 
rebooted: everything works fine, now.  I am simply surprised that KMix 
does not show the 4 right most sliders visible in KDE3.5.10 (I dont 
remember the name of them) representing 4 "logical" inputs levels... It 
is not strictly needed but I used it before, for exemple: first chanel 
at low level for the background music and the other sliders at the 
maximum in case of an audio notification.

    I remember: I already tryed jokey. "kdesu jockey-gtk" opens a 
progress dialog during the search of drivers, then opens a dialog box 
saying in french that "there is no proprietary driver used by the 
system" (see attached picture). What can I do with this jockey dialog ?  
The french in the dialog displayed after activating the item "Ati 
Catalyst Control Center" is as good as my english :-/, but says 
something similar to Jockey. Is there a way to get a text list of the 
installed packages (from Synaptic or other packages manager) ?

    I feel much better with TDE now, and worse with this unfinished 
Thunderbird... Could I take the risk to import the near 1 giga archives 
of KMail 3.5.10 in KMail 3.5.12 ? Any suggestion before wasting again a 
lot of time ?  (I decided to giveup KMail while testing KDE4)
