Re: Upgrade to Squeeze and KDE

Hi all!

After updating my hosts in my house to the new stable, Debian Squeeze,
I'm thinking of upgrading my desktop to Squeeze.

With my hosts with Lenny in general, except for some things, everything
was working after upgrading to Squeeze, but I worry that something is
broken in the upgrade from KDE 3.5 to KDE 4.4, as this PC is used to
study and work and I wish the minimal downtime.

I wonder what experiences you had to update KDE and its applications to
new versions of Squeeze and the considerations to keep in mind
throughout this process.

Thanks in advance for your replies.


There have been many reports of problems with ntfs-3g, here are some suggestions, all are copy and past from other post, none of these suggestions are mine:

"Try adding the user to the disk group, that worked the last time tried it."

gpasswd -a user-name disk

Being only accessible as root is by design. You can easily mount as the regular user with these two commands in a root terminal:

chown root $(which ntfs-3g)
chmod 4755 $(which ntfs-3g)

note that setuid root has a security risk...It's the old convenience versus security struggle."
