Here is a quick fix for the beta if you have upgraded KDE and borked it (copy and paste into a console shell).
mv x-session-manager x-session-manager-broke
ln -s /opt/kde3/bin/startkde x-session-manager
mv applications borked-applications
mv pixmaps borked-pixmaps
mkdir -p /usr/local/share/applications/kde
cp borked-applications/kde/ksnapshot.desktop /usr/local/share/applications/kde
ln -s /usr/local/share/pixmaps pixmaps
ln -s /usr/local/share/applications applications
ln -s cache.png preferences-web-browser-cache.png
cat ksnapshot.desktop |grep -v ^GenericName > ksnapshot.desktop1
mv ksnapshot.desktop1 ksnapshot.desktop
Alternatively, you can download a script with the same commands and run it:
Either should do the job!
This fix is f course temporary, and will be fully addressed in the final. Depending on third party repos doesn't seem reliable enough for a smooth run.
We are thinking of various alternatives...
