You right, but better method to avoid conflicts is to prefix all relevant libraries with tde- or trinity-, like tde-kdecore.so or trinity-kdecore.so, etc. At least is consistent and predictable. > I know it can be a pain; I have put an Etherpad up that details exactly > what has been renamed to try to make it a bit more bearable. Even if all changes are documented, coding become harder anyway, because we programming with qt/kde for years, and is hard to change our coding style. My free time is very limited, so I won't waste it learning new syntax, I want just to code, to add value to trinity project. So, if trinity project still need my help, it should maintain a more conservative line. Sorry for my critics, right now i'm angry because I waste few minutes to understand why my ksocketdevice.h disapeared :) > Tim -- Serghei.
