This leaves me the option of fiddling around with various distributions, although I must say that F16 seems to be a very good distro for my aged T60p.

(I do not use compiz) This s actually kind of a showstopper for me. I will try to work around it by compiling the older version by myself. As I understand 0.9* is a cpomplete rewrite of the code, so we will probably not have a modern compiz working with older KDE. I really want to use compiz as my window manager; Zoom is a requirement for a high resolution (1600x1200) display, so I am keen to learn whether and how someone has been able to use compiz with the latest trinity release. I shall report. [KLaptop] > Nice catch. I will have a look but I'm not a developer and I have no > idea why it needs to use a Debian command. I suspect this is due to Trinity's history as an Ubuntu add-on. Now that we have packages for other distributions, this really should be sorted pout. Let me know how I can help in this regard.

Will do. I need to add the following bug: echo $PATH /opt/kde3/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin/:/usr/games: /usr/lib/qt4/bin: /usr/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/home/peter/bin:/home/peter/.local/bin: /home/peter/.local/bin The path for trinity is /opt/trinity and I needed to set symbolic links to make it work as expected.
